Islamic Terrorism Today Like Ottoman Ghazi Attacks on Byzantium

Reader comment on item: Turkey's Erdo─čan Gambles and Loses
in response to reader comment: Erdogan is a threat for the regional Peace and Middle East Stability

Admiral Kikareas states that ...

"Erdogan follows exactly the same planning and thinking of his pre ancestors the Mongol Turks, when they arrived from Mongolia and with the same way they conquered the Byzantine Empire, which was in decline, the Jerusalem, Middle East, the Balkan Countries and reached to Vienna."

I agree with this statement. In particular, the decline and collapse of the Byzantine Empire was to a large extent induced by the ongoing attacks of islamic ghazi barbarian terrorists along the borders of the Byzantine Empire. The Ottoman ghazi attacks were like the present day islamic terrorism perpetrated around the world against non-muslims. The islamic strategy is to use psychopathic muslim terrorists (ghazis) to commit atrocities wherever they can in order to create fear and weaken the will of their opponents. The psychopathology fostered by islamic ideology and teaching is well suited to creating and spreading islamic terrorism. That the civilized world of today and their leaders in the West will not effectively crush and destroy and vanquish this islamic scourge at its source is a disgrace. Maybe the Byzantine leaders and people also suffered from a peculiar lack of will to truly destroy their psychopathic islamic tormentors, terrorists, and enemies as the West does today.
