[size=130%]It has been confirmed that the Ottoman Empire did give aid to the Irish people during the Great Famine.

[size=130%]A copy of a letter is on display at the European Commission office in Dawson Street Dublin, which is signed by the Anglo Irish gentry of the time, thanks Sultan of the Ottoman Empire for a donation £1,000 to the people of Ireland in 1847.


[size=130%]President Mary McAleese addressed guests a Turkish State dinner last year and said that the Irish town of Drogheda had adopted the Star & Crescent as their emblem in gratitude to the people of Turkey who donated three ships full of food to the town during the Famine.

[size=130%]The remarks were subsequently dismissed by the Drogheda Historical society, who said there was no record of the ships docking in the Irish port.


[size=130%]The society's statement has divided the historical community in Drogheda, the majority of the people in the town have been brought up on the belief that the town was aided by the Turks during the Famine.

[size=130%]The Turkish ambassador to Ireland, Altay Cenziger said, "This is proof that the people of Turkey assisted the Irish during the Famine. The money sent to Ireland was sufficient to send 250 people to America.”


[size=130%]Cenziger said that research is being carried out to determine whether or not the Turks actually sent aid to Drogheda.

[size=130%]The letter will be on display in the EC office until June 4th.

A beautifully written article. There should be more articles written such as yours highlighting the kindness, generosity, humanity and justice that was shown and exercised by the Ottomans at home and abroad.

Only Allah and Turkish high governmental officials know many more acts of global generoristy are kept in the archives. This has come as a total surprise that Ottomans shipped supplies 4000 miles away to Ireland. Last year Todayszaman also broke a story about a ship sent to China in early 1800s on a goodwill visit and learning.

Traces of geneoristy and other help is also visible in Maysore, which is the 2nd large city in the state of Karnataka in India. The city lies 146 southwest of Bangalaore. The city was ruled by Muslim leaders Haider Ali and later his son Tipu Sultan in the 18th century. After Tipu Sultan's death in the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War in 1799, the Kingdom was distributed by the British to their allies of the Fourth Mysore war, the Marhata, Nizam, and State of Travancore, while the rule of Mysore city was retained by the British who built the Government House (completed 1805).

The Government House is now used by the Government of Karnataka as a State Guest House. The existing town of Nazarabad was demolished to remove any traces of Tipu's rule. The capital of the kingdom. Those of who have visited the city must have seen the traces of Ottoman construction and military assistance to Mayso
re and Tipu Sultan.

Ha ha ha

See how quickly his attitude changes? Instead of engaging a criticism of this opinion he immediately becomes violent. Here is the typical Islamic attitude to criticism. "Accept or die" is the name of the game.

Go back and tell Allah we will have no part in his zombie religion here in China.
Serve the Emperor!
