Note the bit about how their prophet predicted the fall of first Byzantium, then Rome.

It's a disgustingly false historical epic. There's nothing in it about the days of rape and pillage that followed the conquest. A sub-plot features a European woman who falls in love with a filthy Turk.

We have had the power to retake Constantinople anytime in the last 100 years. We can even drive out the Turks and send them back to Turkistan if we wish to, and give Turkey back to the Greeks.
In fact if Muslim had the power they would invade Europe. Its just us that we act too damn fairly.

Most distressingly, we did take it back. Byzantium was occupied by British forces at the end of the first world war. Lord Salisbury, the Foreign Secretary, wanted to give it to the Greeks, but was overruled. Instead, we handed it back to the savages.

The Russians have always wanted it back.

Note how the Turks never ever return territory they have invaded without being forcibly evicted.

Byzantium needs to be taken back some time; at least the European half of it.
