Example text

The Islamic religion was founded by its prophet, Mohammed, early in the seventh century. Adherents of the faith must comply with five basic principles: they must accept Allah as the god and Mohammed as his prophet; they must pray five times each day; give alms to the poor; fast in the holy month of Ramadan; and, if possible, make a pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The Koran is the sacred book of Islam. Along with other religious codes, it forms the basics of Islamic law which governs all aspects of life.

This analysis totally overlooked any similarities with Australia’s position vis-à-vis Britain. Australia’s war with the Ottoman Empire first became a reality through a strange series of events in Broken Hill, New South Wales, on New Year’s Day, 1915. That morning a thousand local holidaymakers set out on a picnic train for nearby Silverton. The holiday mood was abruptly shattered when two ‘Turks’ opened fire on the train, killing three picnickers and wounding several others. Another man was shot as the assailants tried to escape.

Earlier rulers, whether they be Greek or Roman, had generally oppressed the Christian peasant farmers. When the Ottoman armies evicted these landlords, they lowered taxes. As the sultan was regarded as the ultimate owner of the land, the new Turkish/Islamic overlords were seen as merely caretakers of the land and its peasant population. This may explain why Ottoman rule generally was accepted quite well. For the peasant in the field, life became a little more bearable. However, all this changed from the seventeenth century onwards, as possibilities for further expansion diminished and the central government squeezed the peasants more and more for taxes and, later, for conscripts into the army.
