1. The show is more entertaining than Erdogen the rat
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.28.12)
Let's go on with the show.
2. Sounds right...
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (11.28.12)
I haven't seen the series, but from what is in this article, it seems that both Erdogan and the show's producers are right. Suleiman was a womanizer and a conqueror. Regardless of who is right, the show shouldn't be interfered with by the government. Just because Erdogan idolizes Suleiman as a dictator doesn't mean that Erdogan is or should be like him.
3. Erdoga controls media& judiciary if need be by murder
4. Another cowardly Muslim dictator afraid of ghosts
brian cohen ,   judean peoples front   (11.28.12)
We who live in free democratic countries know a slimy dictator when we see one. The Muslim dictators are only slightly worse than Soviets or Chavez (but I think north Korea is worse), and you can tell they are weak when they have no strength to withstand criticism.
5. Suddenly the so called freedom lovers go quiet.What a bunch!
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (11.28.12)

Recep Tayyip Erdogan ..A new phase in the history of modern Turkey Form Turkish Prime Minister current despite the passage of nearly eighty years on the Republic of Turkey with secular principles, was able veteran politician and who enjoys great popularity in all the popular and political, was able to prove to the world unanimously that the approach of his party he represents moderation from visions Islamic, and that he tried to move away from use of religion in politics he does not want confrontation with the secular extremists his vision for governance based on the Islamic working to rise to the ranks of developed nations.
7. Erdogan...a blight!
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (11.28.12)
The silent majority of Turks do not like Erdogan and wish he and his ass wipe cronies would dissappear. The Islamo Fascists are destroying any progress Turkey has made during the last 60 years.....Welcome back to the Islamic Stone Age.
8. Suleiman spent30 yrs on horseback (Watch Erdogan horse fall)
Obsessive ,   Turkey   (11.28.12)
9. Turks: FREE YOURSELVES from the self-ruinous ISLAMISTS.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (11.28.12)
10. Suleyman means Solomon
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (11.28.12)
However he bathed in the blood of hungarians and other balcan peoples, no data about persecuting jews. He gave refugee for many jews expelled from Spain.
11. There is data about Suleyman
y-man   (11.28.12)
The sultan himself entered Buda on September 11, 1526; and on September 22 he decreed that all the Jews seized at Buda, Esztergom, and elsewhere, more than 2,000 in number, should be distributed among the cities of the Turkish empire. They were sent to Constantinople (Istambul), Plevna (Pleven) and Sofia, where they maintained their separate community for several decades.
12. #6 and #10
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (11.28.12)
Sam #6: It is very hard to understand from your bad English what you are really trying to say but as a Turkish born and raised American who visits Turkey regularly I will simply say that you are wrong, Erdogan and AKP took the country back in civilization. One of the latest set backs due to Erdogan's administration is to abandon the membership at the CERN project. Istvan #10: Iberic Jews (My ancestors) were given refuge in Ottoman empire way before Sultan Suleyman. It was Sultan Beyazid the son of Mehmet the Conqueror. His motive for allowing Jews to the empire was in order to create a loyal population in the newly conquered lands such as Izmir (Smyrna) Manisa (Magnesia) and Istanbul (Constantinople) where the local population was mostly hostile Greeks.
13. I take it, then .....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.29.12)
.... that Erdogan would be quite supportive were Israel and/or Jewish groups decide to sue Turkish government-owned state television for the grossly innacurate and highly inflammatory made-for-television movies about Cast Lead. Remember those? Little ersatz "Palestinian" girls standing bravely before a firing squad .... if it weren't so sad, it would be laughable. But it's good to know that Erdogan would support such a lawsuit. I just might bring one.
14. Turkey
You got your own medicine. Enjoy !!!!!!!
15. Suleiman Soap Opera
Trinity Smith ,   U.S.A. Florida   (09.05.14)
Speaking about the Soap Opera this to me is one of the Best of all. The Actors, the Drama, And the Backgrounds are amazing. They make me feel I am living that moment for Real.
