That pretty much speaks for itself doesn't it. And to think...you're actually proud to say that!
>We have a right not to want people from >different cultures to invade our country and to >live by refusing to become Greek or share the >Greek values and culture
Oh...I see. It's OK for Greeks to move to the US, Canada etc..and to continue to speak Greek, attend Greek churches, only marry other Greeks etc..but when others do the same thing...this is bad, bad, bad :)

Turkey is a poor, and in many ways...a very backward country. It should be viewed in that context. This does not mean that all Turks are barbarians, dirty, smelly etc...as some have suggested. You now..there was a time when Greece was just a smelly, dirty country full to the brim with illiterate peasants. Even now..in some of the rural areas and on some islands...it's still smelly and dirty...and I've met several illiterates.
