I am just throwing this out here, but when you say "Turkish Race is barbaric" you are in effect slandering the "Greek Race". If race is by definition "a human population distinguished by genetically transmitted physical characteristics" then the Greeks and the Turks are the same race. It is highly unlikely that the Turks of today are pure decendants of the Selcuks. Many are of Greek ancestry (i.e. decendants of Greeks who converted to Islam, despite how odious this occurrence may appear to most Greeks, it did happen. Also the descendants of kidnapped children from Greek villages.)The real issues issues are cultural and religious differences, not racial.
