History Turkish carpets

Christian Motivs on Turkish Hereke Carpets? It seems to be surprisingly to find Christian Motifs on some of the carpet artworks handknotted in a Muslim country like Turkey, where 98 % of the population are Muslims.

History: Turkish Delight

Guest Column: Turkish Delight The Feb. 15 issue of The Christian Science Monitor describes a situation which, to anyone familiar with American-Turkish relations in the post-World War II period, is almost beyond imagining: an American attack on Turkey. According to the Monitors story, The year is 2007. After a clash with Turkish forces in northern Iraq, U.S. troops stage a surprise attack. Reeling, Turkey turns to Russia and the European Union, who turn back the American onslaught. This is the plot of Metal Storm, one of the fastest-selling books…

Turkish government history

Mostly, Palestinians want their own piece of land. Much of the land they would call their own (i.e. they use it regularly) is legally state land for land formerly belonging to the Turkish Sultan. But they use it like commons lands. But they the government gets legalistic and siezes that land and sells it or allows others to build on it.
