Tomorrow 29 May is the 555 th anniversary of conquest of Istanbul.We will celebrate in big parades and happiness. This is a victory over "corrupted Byzantines", so corrupted that they were discussing whether angels are male or female in St.Sophia while the enemy just outside city walls.There was no chance to continue "Byzantine Tricks".

Mehmet II, The conqueror came to the garden of St.Sophia on the conquest day 29 May 1453 Friday with his white horse, there were many people who seek refuge there and were very afraid. A man approached to Mehmet II, and try to kiss his legs and were trembling because he was so afraid, bending down and still try to show exagerated respect. Mehmet II asked his people who is this man? They said My sultan (hegemoner-emperor) this man is ortodox patriarch. At that moment he said to patriarch, stop stop stop dont do like that dont fall yourselves to this unhonourable level, at least you represent a group of beleiver to our same god, go and sit on your post and be honourable. this is we!

It is true also that Orhan Gazi conquered Nicea and fired all Rum men to Istanbul and married the leaving women with Janissaries.Turkness is not by blood its by culture, it is the culture and knowledge that defeated the hardest enemies not only military power. Many Sultans have poem books written by themselves many composed classical music, they speak 2-3-4-5-6-7 foreign languages. Many rums, bulgars, boshnaks, croats, rumanians, slavs, arabs and all kinds of different ethnic groups merged in the society.

Greeks is another story, There is no Modern Greek, there is no real greek at all,They are distinct because of barbarian attacks from North europe. The people who call themselves greek are rum, who just call themselves greek, they are not European at all they migrated from far east parts of anatolia to todays greece starting from 1830 s and accelareted after WWI, when local rums cooperated the greek army which invaded west anatolia and there was no atmosphere for them to stay after defeat of greek army and finally they migrated to greece with agreements in 1920 s.

The so called modern greeks donot undertsand what Aristotle originally wrote BECAUSE the language of him and todays greeks is totally different. Like a translation to Turkish or English they are translated in so called modern greek language. These people are so mad about being related to ancient greeks then they filled their simple language with ancient greek words and scientific terminology. They also took homosexuality of ancient greeks with today greece has the biggest ratio of gays in the world. In some internet sites some people call GAYREEK because of that.

So dont take aristo into your mouth.look at your face and swear at yourself because you are so ideefixed, so ugly so concrete brained. For us it doesnot matter, we even accept you as a human when you turn from your mistakes of insult. you keep your inferiority complex and tomorrow evening:

29 MAY 21.00 hours we will celebrate the day of conquest in Halic and i recommend you to come and see the symbolic travel and pulling of navy from the land while your corrupted byzantines as you know they closed golden horn with big chain to prevent turkish navy to enter

Best Regards ( for the people who read this enjoyable article not you)
