It is rich to call Turks liars and cheats when the Greeks cooked the books to enter the Euro zone,ordinary EUcitizens will be paying for this fraud.It is also very cheeky to claim a continental mass has no continental shelf while small islets just off its shores have virtually all. See the cases I mentioned in my previous post.

You seem to be an expert on genocides and massacres so tell me what happened to 30000 men women and children of moslem faith when they surrendered in Tripolitsa in the Morea on promises of safe passage to Anatolia,while they were at it what did the greek fighters do to Morean Jews who were innocent 3rd party.Tell me what happened to Cretan Turks and their mosques.Tell me why there no longer are moslems in Ioninna and thaselly.Tell me why when the ottomans handed over the city of Thesalonica,a multiethnic community with a powerfull Jewish majority with Bulgarian and other slav minorities,in 1912,why is it now completely Greek. Where are the Jews and Slavs of Thesalonica now.Greeks could have done more and try to save the lives of their Jewish compatriots,may be some of them did not want to. The Turks handed over to the Greeks their subject peoples intact with their properties and churches and mosques.

Fifty years after what do we see they not only cleared out the muslims and jews they also cleared out the christian Slavs, so much for christian solidarity. Now they are hypocritically designating various problems of the region as a moslem vs christian thing.No,my friends it is no such thing ,it is purely and simply Balkan nationalism gone mad.For some enlightenment please read Prof Dawkins works and clear your brains off this medivial mumbo jumbo.Finally may I add,after all this talk of turkish atrocities etc you can still see on a map ,after 500 years of Ottoman rule,the countries ,languages,cultures of Serbia,Bulgaria,Romania,Armenia,Albeniaetc,but where are the countries of Crimean Tartars,the Circassians,Pomaks of West Thracia,all exterminated,who cares they are only muslims. Religion and politics must not mix, it is so yesterday.
