Maybe someone might think you're a strange fellow. You complain about flaws and deficiencies of the Turkish educational system and at the same time you display them all in your posts. When asked about that you keep adamantly silent. But I don't think you're strange. ...

If you had read the above post with some understanding you would know I didn't say what you wrote I had done. I just quoted it and my reply began with :

" What you write about Egypt strongly reminds me of Iran after the Arab conquest - a long dark age of a highly developed culture enslaved by an alien barbarian army inspired by a regressive cult..."

It's very hard to distinguish between who says what, isn't it? If you have a caricature on that quote of mine too, post it and no doubt some Moslem/Turkish readers will press the 'Like' button under it.

In the meantime in view of your "expertise" also on the medieval economic history based on the lack of any sources (excepting your Koalemos-like head - the source of all your Turkish "knowledge") and basic logic in your praise of some mythical "Market Economy" where we have to deal with a predatory and slavery-based economy of the Islamic despotism where all land and property belonged legally to the sultan/caliph prevents me from wishing to ask you any further questions. You don't answer questions so why ask them ? After all your Turkish pseudo-historical caricatures are not written for anybody to question but to believe in.
