Greetings Rezarta. I have a book about Ali, titled Ali Pasha The Diamond of Jannina, written by William Plomer (1970).On the cover are these words: Thief, liar, kidnapper, sadist, sensualist, terrorist, murderer, and millionaire- Ali Pasha was the most powerful figure in Ottoman Europe. And all power turns to dust, here it looks like a ruin. A haunting shot with the evening light and the stillness. Nice compostion. Good use of the flashlight. Regards. Klaudio

For the user before:
I would to say that Ali Pasha has lived at 1741-1822 and you have to think the mentality of that time and not of this our time.
Second: Is true what Ali Pasha was like thief and millionaire great war general ecc, but i don't want to think what the Great Britain and his royal was at that time 1741-1822, maybe were worse than Ali Pasha?
I believe yes.
But William Plomer didn't wrote never for his country and English Thiefs, liars, kidnappers, sadists, sensualists, terrorists, murderers, and millionaires.
He was borne at South Africa a colony of Great Bretain and like other colonies the Great Bretain, didn't take them with peace.....
