You evidently have read a lot, but unfortunately the wrong material.

There is so much racism and rhetoric in your thinking that it would be impossible for you to see the truth. With words like "Kemal", "Koran", "Muhammed", you sink reallly low.

I said what i said in terms of Turks being an ancient civilization and they are the one and the same as the Sumerians. Sumerian was agllutative and Turkic is the only language from the region that is agglutative, except the Huns and Finns which are very close to Turks. But i know as a Greek, you would not be able to understand why the "Alps" are named Alp(High point in Turkish- very old Turkic word). Perhaps you are just blowing steam rather then reading.

The Sumerian-Etruscan and Trojan theory of them being the same stock as Turk, was not developed by Turks or "Kemal". Most of the work is from very reputable Danish, French, Hungarian, Russian, Jewish, and Italian scholars. If they devoted their lives to research, linguistics and archealogy and came to a conclusion, you need to grow up and either understand their work or prove otherwise. Promoting a nationalist and racist Greek approach will not get you anywhere.

I don't feel the urge to correct you, but you can "Read" books on the subjects and i'm sure you'll come to the same conclusion. Don't let the Greek armies failure in loosing every battle they waged on the Turks blind the truth. I never attended a Turkish school and read mostly western books and came to this conclusion. So all your bias is based on Hate, not Truth. i read some of your responses and it's always the same approach.

Note, the Turks had a homeland and a word for it much longer then the Greeks that were not able to build a nation because of the severe city-state conflicts amongst each other. The Turks called a mythological land where peace would flourish as Kizil Elma(red apple). Their land was called "Yurt". this is very Turkish. It appears you are not familiar with Arabic. Check online to find out how many Turkish words their are in Arabic. More then there are Arabic words in Turkish. The Turks also, added the Istan, to every where they went, including Istanbul, Turkistan, Kurdistan(Bashkurds), Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tataristan, Magyaristan, Bulgaristan, Kirgizistan, Kazakistan, etc....

* Read recent Etruscan and Sumerian findings, not heresay based(indo european bullshit-no such thing as indo europeans) vatican inspired or history written by totalitarian governments.

If Greece is sooo Great, why are they always fighting with each other. Your government is in virtual collapse, despite having the Olympics and billions of EU welfare funds. Still broke after "so many successful Greek elite"? How is this possible for a nation that is 10,000,000, which is half the size of Istanbul's population? You got some real smart people in Greece i admit.....
