What Person In History Do You Loathe?
In terms of the Nazi regime (other than Hitler), the worst figure IMO was Heinrich Himmler who lived a life filled with evil, madness and committed crimes against humanity. At the height of his power he was the head of the gestapo and the SS and built and oversaw the concentration camps. He's considered one of the persons most directly responsible for the Holocaust. Too bad like many of his Nazi cohorts he escaped justice and persecution by committing suicide.

It's Sultan Mehmet, ER, and his only crime was kicking out the Christians who were persecuting his people for NOT being Christian. Frankly, if you hate him, you hate everyone in history who kicked out an usurping tyrant.

Try picking someone worthy of hatred next time, instead of picking someone based on their religion. I can think of several Popes far more worthy of hatred, and quite a few Priests as well. And you don't have to go all that far back in history either.

From what I've read Mehmet was a pretty generous ruler. He allowed his subjects a considerable degree of religious freedom granting them freedom to move freely within the Empire, and to practice their religion free from persecution.

Yes. I'm not crazy about prejudice and ignorance, both of which seem present in your choice.

He's revered by the Turks for it too. He was the kind of ruler everybody would enjoy. He served his people, improved their lives, and didn't try to force them into a one size fits all mold. From everything I've read, he's one of the more honorable people in history.

Destroying the Byzantine Empire and this setting up the future failed conquests of Europe and the fractured social and religious systems of the Balkans are enough for a person to put him on their list.
