prof. Dr. İlber Ortaylı, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk’s Twitter account, a Byzantine soldier before sleeping, “Did I lock the door?” “As you know, Elon Musk is a money man who makes fun of the world. Let’s not think that these types have a fine knowledge of history, philosophy and literature.”
After Elon Musk shared the drawing he shared with the text of 1453, social media had both reactions and discussions over questions.
prof. Dr. İlber Ortaylı, in his article in the Hürriyet Newspaper, evaluated the sharing of Musk in the past days.
Ortaylı stated that Stefan Zweig wrote the last story about the entry of the Turkish army due to the forgetting of the lockdown of Kerkeporta during the conquest of Istanbul, and said, “Istanbul was conquered after a great military preparation process. It was not that easy,” he said.
İlber Ortaylı also said for Elon Musk, “As you know, Elon Musk is a money man who makes fun of the world. Let’s not think that these types have a fine knowledge of history, philosophy and literature.”

The relevant part of İlber Ortaylı’s article is as follows:
“EVERYDAY AMERICAN JOKE”
“This Elon Musk joke is an everyday American joke; they like that kind of thing. Let’s not think it has much to do with either the Greeks or the Turks. It’s clear that Elon Musk and any Orthodox priest or any Christian-minded intellectual anywhere in the world can’t go in the same bag. He’s American. , is the leader of the financial market; therefore, there is no point in writing page-by-page articles on it as we have done.
It would be a very naive understanding to think that the Turkish army entered because the lockdown of Kerkeporta was forgotten. It is equally naive to believe that an army of 200-300 thousand people surrounded Istanbul. It is not an area to feed such a large army. Hafazanallah, if you could provide food for the army; He brought disease out of the slag and contamination he left behind.
This siege is first of all the genius of an army dominated by firearms and its young marshal. Today, Istanbul has already carved the traces of the conquest into history. Now the main thing is today’s invasions that Istanbul has to deal with. These last ones have started to turn the life of the big city upside down for a while and the destruction continues. If the necessary measures are not taken to ensure the necessary economic, financial and zoning order, there will be much more dire consequences.
