Mixed feelings. They shit up the Balkans and Eastern Europe and beheaded/jitzya'd anyone who would not convert to Islam. And there's Constantinople. But on the other hand, like every major empire the world has seen their legacy and achievements live on today. Also, they sure did frequent homosexuality quite a lot for Muslims.
>>545103 As far as theological empires go, the Ottomans were actually pretty religiously tolerant actually. The incentives to convert to Islam were typically more like less taxation, no Janissary levies, etc. as opposed to brute force.
>>545165 >>545165 try millions of people in and around the capital of an islamic empire not being non muslims. and this is suppose to be an empire that is trying to force non muslims to convert. sure if there were non muslims on the edges of empire that would be different. but there were non muslims in anatolia and istanbul and the surrounding areas at the time of the dissolution of the ottoman sutanate.
>Molla Fenari became the first Sheikh-ul-Islam in 1425. This was an office whose main function was to ensure that the conduct of goverment was in accordance with Islamic law. Their duties would eventually expand into the bureaucracy, educational systems, plotting against the Sultans, inciting Janissary uprisings, and preventing the modernization of the army and the civil service. I don't remember what book I read it in, but it made me chuckle.
>>547955 >How is rape, murder, kidnapping, plunder, and subjugation worthy of a blessing?
these are what %90 percent of modern entertainment based on you closet rapist, muslims enjoy it, christians enjoy it, godless heathens enjoy it i am pretty sure chinks are into murder and rape as well.
we enjoy knowing that we subjugated those who oppose us or under us.
Everything is predestined, anon. That's what it says in the Bible.
Stalin and the Communists never had the Lord's grace and that is why when I look down on them from Heaven I will enjoy the puffs of smoke rising up as they burn. Just imagine burning your finger on a hot stove, then imagine that feeling over every part of your body including the tip of your penis, that is what atheists, liberals, communists and muslims have to look forward to while I watch and enjoy bliss for eternity.
I am one of the Elect, as God willed it from the beginning of time.
Ottoman Empire was one of the better stabilizing factors in the Middle East, the sheer amount of cultural and economic compromises to accommodate the hundreds of different cultural groups really shaped the empire as not an imperial empire but a culturally plural empire (looking at you UK/France)
