Turkish spindle history

To assemble the Turkish spindle, select 2 of the cross-bars that are the same size. The cross-bars have square holes in them that will fit snugly on the spindle shaft to form the whorl. Slide them down the shaft and place them perpendicular to each other. Cut a length of yarn for a leader. I used a commercially spun wool yarn and made it 4 x the length of the spindle shaft.

Turkish history in Cyprus

The Turks have stabilized their Kurdish problem. I can t sympathize with the Turks no. They invaded Cyprus on the pretext of saving the Turkish minority (20%) by occupying a third of the island. Basically, it s like Greece invading Istanbul to safeguard the Greek minority there. They have a history of terrorizing the Kurds, jailing them for voicing separatist views (I m talking about peaceful groups and Kurdish politicians), and now they want to dictate terms to Kurds outside of Turkey. Sorry, but I really don t think the Turks are thinking of…

Mera Sultan Turkish drama history

The analyst has used the word ‘Hamara Sultan’ instead of ‘Mera Sultan’. He has questioned the fact of presenting the other side of the story. Instead of portraying the golden period of women, fair judicial system, his successful conquering areas during the Sultan Suleiman reign, the drama portrays the Muslim ruler to be highly engaged in luxurious style, and having relations with women, irrespective of religious differences. Alcohols, dance performances, which are forbidden in Islam, are portrayed as a norm in that society. Moreover this drama is…

Turkish history Ottoman Empire

By Turkey to establish Islamic leadership . The madcap agenda of Turkeys current rulers is to create a 21st-century version of the Ottoman Empire. Turks even mutter about the caliphate headed for centuries by the Turkish sultan. This is explosive stuff. And the Turks are playing with matches. But weve obstinately ignored every warning sign. First, our ally stabbed us in the back on the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom, denying our troops their planned routes into Iraq. Then the Turkish media intensified its anti-American fantasies. Headscarves…

Ince Vlad and Mircea were dead, and Dracula and Radu were still in Turkey, Hunyadi was able to put a member of the Danesti clan, Vladislav II, on the Walachian throne.

Turkish history Sultan Suleiman

In the year 1556, the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent ordered a royal bath to be constructed over the ruins of an earlier public bath that had been destroyed in 532 AD. The new bath came to be called the Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam because of its close proximity to the famous Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya), the 6th century Byzantine cathedral/mosque that is now a world-renowned museum. We were invited to experience this celebrated bath, and this is the story. Years of Service The Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam pleasured Sultans and their guests…
