Rape and pillage. Nothing has changed with the turks.

Actually, Istanbul comes from the Koine Greek phrase "εις την πόλη" (eis tin poli) which means "to the city". Therefor, Istanbul is not a Turkish name; rather, its root is in Greek, just as everything in this world is.

Mehmet ii told his troops if the city fell then they could loot and plunder for 3 days. They did. Bad things happened during the crusades but you forget why they were launched, to counter attack the Muslim invaders who took christian land.

Shame on the catholic crusaders who betrayed Christianity by weakening, looting Constantinople to make it fit to fall into muslim hands.
And now in 2015 it looks as though history may repeat itself. cough isis cough

Not true. Forced conversions have always been the norm among the Muslims. And if a Muslim becomes a Christian, off with his head!
After they raped and Looted sadly, Many historical eye witness recorded these things.
