Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and his friends fired out the invaders, and after set up of new state its normal to refuse some parts of old regime and this is like this everywhere but there is no big opposition as you say, thats what you want to beleive, Great Seljuk Empires, Local Bey-doms period and rise of Osman Bey-dom and its evolution as a state then an Empire and then Republic of Turkey all continuation of previous states.

... we donot hate from anyone as you do, i tell you a story and you will be ashamed of your humanity,

Mehmed II, The Conqueror direcly heads to Ayasofya after collapse of the Corrupted Byzantine army and opening of city walls, when he comes to the garden of Ayasofya with his white horse there were many Byzantine Noblemen crying and begging to Turks, one of them tries to kiss the boots of Mehmet II, someone with a colourful dress, Sultan says, No, no, no dont do it and asks who this man is, and they reply : My sultan this man is Orthodox Patriarch, Sultan talks to him and says stop this case, dont fall yourself into a dis-honourful position like this, even if we are not from same belief but still you represent a group of beleivers go to your post, and perform your activities freely under my Authority and gave an Imperial Ferman, which is still the legal document for legal existence of Patriachate on this land today.

France, Britain or Germany never supported us but there were times of alliences with these countries. These have colonial and looting past, no period of our history carry un-honour of robbing other innocent people, like robbing Africa, India etc. On the contrary we always fought with strongest enemies like United Crusader armies, groups of street looters collected from many countries of Europe. and the were locking their women by belt of virginity...))), indeed very very low,

Also no one was forced to enter Islam, because there is a rule in Islam that there is no force to be used for spreading islam, its only by moral superiority and people were racing each other for sending their sons to capital. History is full of non-Turkish entering to Ottoman service like several French, Italians, Serbs, Hungarians etc. The ever biggest vezir is Sokullu Mehmet Pasha is a croat. Your capacity will not be enough to understand Turkish systematic and culture,

Countries born, live and die like ottomans, but nations forever, and nations have character, For example Rums very famous for theft and tricks, which left and idiom from history "Byzantine Tricks"

.. try to love, you have no other choice, history is going to repat again, yet Turks are weak, very weak and trapped on a small land piece,

If creating ottoman empire only by terror, jihad or genocide you are simply brainless, when Suleyman Magnifient was on power, he was speaking 7-8 foreign languages including Greek, ( not the fake Greek of today) and his poetry book was so big that it may break if it falls on your legs, while his power was undiscussable all over the world there was a man at his door, every half hour suddenly open door and shout at the face of sultan " bigger than you is god dont think you are someone important" and at that time Charlecain, the Holy Roma Germen Emperor, peh peh peh what a title...))) did not know how to read and write.

... Ataturk does not have a flat asiatic head...))) you are really miserable, the population of Turkey is white and in 1930 about 45% immigrants of 1 st generation from Balkans from our lost homeland territory, and that time the fake greeks who are mad about europeans, because they are not, were living around Kayseri, 1000 km east of istanbul, trabzon 1500 km east of istanbul etc.

... try to love and its good for your own health.
