My dear greek friend , seems like your everlasting Turkish-hate is not allowing you to see the truth in your own country ,150.000 turkish descendants in Greece are not allow to do many of those things that accuse Turkey for , Turks in Greece can not have their own schools or assign their own religious leaders , their precious lands seized by the Greek goverment and they are under great pressure , about the killing daugthers issue it is those kurdish people who does that really and it is those feodal kurdish leaders who keeps kurds in poverty , perhaps we should seize them like the greeks did ? at least we don't live on EU money and work for our own , i find it ridicilious when a greek tries to lecture us about being a good neighbour , modern Turkey never had militarist actions on any of her neighbouring countries or any other around the world , but tell me didn't Greece invade Turkey in 15 May 1919 ? and support PKK for many years ? build tension on for a piece of rock that dissappears when sea level raises ? despite the haters from both sides , unlike you can imagine turkish people have great sympathy for greeks , we appreciate the culture we share for ages now , it is another story of talking about sufferings and bad intentions , both sides have some true some not arguments but thats not helpfull for our future , and once again
we really do not want to join EU to pay for greeks to have more siesta
you have a good day ,
