... As an American, and as a history teacher I have lived in Turkey many many years and you have no idea what you are talking about. Each and every one of your sentences are non truths. You threw it on the wall hoping it will stick. Please don't offend your readers intelligence. Everyone is not as ignorant and dumb as you hope they are, believing this kind of vs just cause you want to come on here and bash a great nation and the biggest and the most powerful empire in the world. Oh and about the plague, while the plague took the world by storm it skipped the Turks only a few died in Istanbul and Bursa because they were very clean people. After that, people in other countries started to believe Turks had magical powers cause the plague skipped them and went to Iran, Arabia, Africa etc Learn your facts ...
