 Question  The magnificent Ottoman(islamic) empire?

"Your love killed the Turk and the Arab" (Jalal Al Din Rumi) ?


Is this post meant to be in support of the Ottoman empire?

I wonder if anyone knows what the significance of the minarets is?  Why these are incorporated into the architectural structure.

I've always wondered about church steeples too.  I think it is to make spotting places of worship easy for travelers.

As far as I know Jewish synagogues or temples, do not have such structures.

The Ottoman empire was an aggressive form of Islamic imperialism, like the Colonial imperialism of the West that followed. Today we know better. Today we try to stick to following the human rights charter, instead of glorifying past empires.
