Old and new Caliphates

There is an interesting article in the Economist this week, Straddling Two Worlds, about the original Muslim Caliphate - the Ottoman Empire.

It shows how different - and how much more tolerant, forward-looking, and practical - the original was when compared with the travesty that DA'ESH is trying to create when they talk about "restoring" the Caliphate for their so-called Islamic State.
