I'm sorry, but it's difficult to take your sources of information seriously.
Here's the headline and the text of a Wiki article;
List of wars involving the Ottoman Empire
This is a list conflicts in Europe ordered chronologically, including civil Wars within the Empire.
There follows over 125 examples with dates.
And the idea that the Arab world was civil? Nonsense, they were invading and conquering Christian land and cities for hundreds of years before the
Christians said "That's enough!" and started the Crusades. Islam is based, founded, and dependent on conquest.
Rich in science? They took the scientists in the cities they captured, and appropriated their work. In the entire history of the Nobel Prizes in the
Sciences, there have been two awarded to Muslims, one was a member of a four person team working in California. The other was declared by the
religious and governmental leaders of his country to not be a Muslim, and the carved that word off his tombstone.
As I say, you need a new source of information. I hate it when I get betrayed by my sources, and I'm sure you do, too.
