terminology used change requestEdit

subject: "Turkish domination" terminology in this article is wrong

Dear Sir,

I have noticed some errors in the article. In the article "Turkish domination" is used but it is wrong. The term "domination" is vague. and the term turkish is also vague in term of which cultural and ethnic community that it is pointing out. The pasha term in the time of ottoman empire was meaning commander of the army. It should be replaced by "sultan" which meaning is same as "king" or "emperor". The whole term "Turkish domination" should be replaced with "Ottoman Empire". Ottoman empire is not a "turkish" empire. In the ottoman empire population were not calling themselves as "turks". "Turk" became after 1923 a term defining a cultural community but it was still not defining an ethnic group.

"Village was officially relocated" ...Edit

The sentence " The village of Mocha was officially relocated 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) west along the Red Sea shore to accommodate the building and demolition of several coastal highways." is vague, a coastal road goes along the coast, so how can several do this? And the fact that it talks of both building and destruction of these roads is confusing. It also sounds like an infrastructure planning disaster and the destruction of a historical site, more information is needed! (talk) 20:53, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
