Kepha Hor ,

If you really want to contribute something useful here, write something on Pan-Turkism if you can. I rely on your wit and erudition.

And please try to avoid anachronisms and lies typical of Turks and Turkophiles like "prior to the exchanges worked out between Greece and Ataturk's Turkey after their war in the 1920's."

Nobody had ever heard of the name "Ataturk" before 1934. The mass murderer you mean was called "in the 20-ies" Ghazi Mustapha Kemal Pasha. "Ghazi" means incidentally "holy warrior of Allah", "destroyer of infidels" or to use a colloquial phrase of today " jihadist".

What you describe as "exchanges" was first and foremost genocide of the Greek minority in Asia Minor perpetrated by Mustapha Kemal Pasha the jihadist. Note that even if every single Moslem in Greece had been killed , that would never ever outbalance 1 mln Greeks exterminated by Kemal the jihadist. Fine "exchanges", weren't they?

And the war you are referring to was never waged between Greece and Turkey but between the Entente Coalition where Greece was just a minor party and the rebel leader Ghazi Mustapha Kemal Pasha and his usurpatory governement recognized by no one except Soviet Russia. The legitimate Ottoman Government was in Constantinople and the sultan supported the Entente war effort against Kemal's rebel hordes as e.g. his death fatwa on Kemal shows.
