Let me clarify one thing for you guys, the ones who do not enough knowledge about that.
The Ottoman Empire in fact is a Balkan or Europe faction where Anatolia or rest can be counted its colony. What I mean is, the face of the Ottomans were always towards to Europe, all investments, settling the population was at the European continent. Anatolia or the rest place of The Ottoman Empire were poorer than the European side. It ended with the Balkan wars when the majority of the lands were lost. Religion has nothing to do with it. Advancing on the east or in the Africa were done always just because there were threats behind since the aim was always Europe.
People's stereotype or mindset unfortunately do not change these facts.
