Hi Ianus

You are doing a good job in exposing the Turks and their cheap propaganda and let me tell you and this is from a reliable source that shall remain unnamed he told me that Turkey has an army of propagandists that sit day after day checking the web and then dishing out their cheap propaganda. I study history and history is about reading literature and I can detect literary drivel a mile away and what these people post is drivel and they really have no shame

I do not study Turkey but it is just amazing how much one encounter the Greeks in Arabic and Coptic and Syriac historical literary sources from time immemorial

The Turks? You never hear about them until they invaded the Byzantine Empire oh darn it there was no Byzantine Empire and what is most amazing is that the Arab historians called it al-ambaratoriyya al-romaniyya al-sharqiyya or the Eastern Roman (read this as Greek and the word romaniyya is from the Quranic ruum or Greeks) Empire. et voila it is all in black and white

I suspect that the turks are told that history starts and ends with the Turks or what I call the islamic historical concept of al-jahiliyya and it means that there really was no real history before the arrival of islam and even in a very sophisticated city like Cairo many educated Egyptians have no clue about their own great history before the arrival of the Arab barbarians in 642CE and when told that 92% of them are of Coptic stock it comes as a surpise as many believe that their own ancestors arrived with the invading Arabs!! Just amazing

But the real gem of them all was when oguztogla claimed that the Arabic word al-ruum (it means the Greeks) which is really a Quranic word (it is the title of Chapter 30 of the Qur'an) really means Romania and not the Greeks!!

Oh darn it so his Allah was talking about Romania! and in great Arabic language sarcasm I would say: wa minkum nastafeed or Oh we learn something from you but it is all sarcasm


But like i told him there must be some cockamamie little theory in Turkey that there is a chapter in the Qur'an called al-Attrak or the Turks but I also told that if so then spare us this one

>Mehmet II was half-Serbian

Oh Darn it I thought that his mama was Armenian

What is amazing about oguztolga is that he is debating the meaning of Arabic words (a language that he does not speak read or write) and in the process he is making a fool of himself ...
