He discusses the following: Turkey (the Ottoman Empire) treated the local population well - better than the Britain did because they didn’t work with Zionists; locust plague; diseases the plague caused in 1915 devastated the local population; no role for women; relationships between Christians, Muslims and Jews were very good; only education was Islamic; denies that Ottomans took taxes by force; never heard about any rebellion against the Ottomans.
