What we should learn fron the Past, and correct

(By EthioMonitor)
Greetings to DS!
When the Ottoman Turks took over Constantinople, the first thing they did was build Minarets around the famous "Hagia Sohia" Church. Turkey's Prime minster, and ex-mayor to the “Capital under siege” of Orthodox Christianity, Constantinople (Istanbul), Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has visited Ethiopia several times, said that 'the mosques are our barracks, the minarets our bayonets, the domes our helmets, and the believers our soldiers.

The Christian population of Turkey was over 40% by the year 1900, during which over 1 million Armenian Christians, hundred of thousands of Greeks and other Orthodox Christians where exterminated by the then Muslim rulers of Turkey. Now, Turkey is regarded as the most secular Islamic state, where Christians are not allowed to build Churches, acquisition of estate, or even renovating their churches that have been there before the arrival of Islam in the Bosporus.

Every one can see it, that the current world is hijacked by Islam. One of the few nations that's capable of bringing an end to this madness is Ethiopia.

Ethiopians, practically were founders of Islam. The first Muezzin to wail from a Minaret was an Ethiopian. If it wasn't for Ethiopians who gave asylum and protection to the first Muslims, there would have been no Islam on the face of the earth. Ethiopians brought evil to the world, and it's only up to them to save the world, and even their own souls by doing the right thing.

In 1422 the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem was again shut, and many Christians imprisoned and tortured.

And when in 1444 Pope Eugene IV preached a new crusade, primarily against the Turks, Christian shrines were desecrated, the Holy Sepulchre was with difficulty saved from destruction, and the Christians, especially the Latins, suffered violent persecution.

From this situation they were rescued, and the buildings were saved, by the Ethiopian King who threatened to pull down all mosques and kill all Muslims within his dominions if the Christians were not left in peace.

So, now, in this cowardly world, Ethiopian Christians again have a very good chance to correct the mistakes some of their ancestors made, and learn from history some of their other ancestors excelled in.
