How the paradigm shifted... So, definitely it is not for everyone to decipher nor contemplate current state of affairs...
Turks were sitting at the gates of Europe and Martin Luther was saying to his fellow Christians, stop resisting, A scrouge sent by God for the sinners. Europe and Europeans did not and do not understand Islam... for them it is equated with papacy or perhaps something akin to Orthodox Eastern Roman Empire.
It was neither, nor did Islam rule the same way. In fact there is a clear distinction between a Muslim and Muslim rule, which, to this day is just incomprehensible, to both non Muslims and Muslims alike. As I have said before, Ottomans were secular before it became fashionable in Europe and they were consumers before it became a thing!
Martin Luther envisaged Turks as good, guided by their beliefs... and wanted them to rule over Germans because they think that our people are wild and uncivilized, half-devil and half-man!!!
Remember we are talking about 15th and 16th centuries!
The disquiet and will to live under Muslims arises from the Golden era of Islam, where under their rule even the most fringe forms of Christianity survived for long periods, not because Islam was secular but because during Muslim rule those communities could survive under self rule! Something anathema to current liberal world order. Where hard borders define rule and communities such as Turkic Kochi Pashtuns, who'd been doing seasonal migrations to and from the western banks of Indus from time immemorial, now totally arrested/ceased perhaps for good, as brotherhood and nation is more defined by lines on the sand, not hearts nor bonds of kinship.
