I have seen your site when I searched for "constantinople to greece" on google. Great job! I feel Turkey should give up all Greek land back to
greece and all Armenian land to Armenia.
I love your site, people don't realize just how much the Turks destroyed culture in turkey with the slaughter of the Armenians and the
persecution of the christians.
What is it like in Greece? Do people still like to see East Thrace back?

This is your fantasy. It's untrue what you think. Such things never
happened, but I know that it is too hard for you that Istanbul has been
conquered by Fatih Sultan Mehmed Han, The Conqueror. But you have to live
with it. There's nothing to do. Istanbul is ours.
I don't believe this lie, but if Turkish invaders have done such things,
they've done very good. Because you lyers deserve it...

There has been so very much suffering in that part of the world. And so many
stories not well known outside the area.
I enjoyed your site very much--and the information was very helpful as well
as the photos.

Hi I have an immense interest in Greek history and coming across your
website I found very interesting. It seems you have put a lot of work into
it and it looks great. I am well aware that Greek civilization is one that
is continuous and one of three, that being the ancient city-states and
empires of Alexander, the middle dominated by the Greek Byzantine Empire,
and the modern with the present Greek nation. I am aware that although the
Byzantine Empire became an Empire dominated by Greeks in all areas of
science, arts, church, and leadership, and I was hoping you could inform me
on the Greekness of Basil II the Bulgaroktonos. Do you know if he is of
Greek origin? It would be much appreciated if you could reply to me and keep
up the great work.

Comments: Who was the inhabitants of the Anatolia before Byzantines When we look at the history
we will see that Anatolia was home to many different tribes, nations. Byzantine was just one
them. Ottoman Empire despite its Turkic origins, is an Islamised Byzantine. Turks living in
Turkey at present are direct descents of the people previously lived in Anatolia. In other words
they are descendents of Romans, Eti s, Hitits, Byzantines ets. They are also mixed with slavs,
Arabs, Persians, Greek, Pomacs, Macedonians,Georgians etc. So humanity moves on with time. If
Greeks have land claims based on history then Romans can also claim whole asia manor including
present Greece Bulgaria, Turkey etc.
When Jews wanted to rob Palestinian land they used Torah as a basis to their robbery.
Greeks seem following a similar path with jews..
If I was a greek I would wait and see the demise of jews before embarking upon the same path

My name is Brian Sellati. I am of Hellenic heritage (My father was Sicilian and my mother is
Greek), living in the US. Your website is a wonderful resource because it is difficult to
find information here about Hellenic history after the life of Christ, especially about
Byzantium and modern Greek history. I was wondering if you had any information about Leo the
Wise and his famous Oracles. I read about them when a copy in the original Greek sold at the
Christie's Auction house a few years ago. I have been unable to find a modern printing in
Latin, Greek or in translation. Do you have any information? I saved the auction page from
the Christie's website out of interest and have attached the file, which I hope is acceptable.
Thank you for your website.

When the modern Greek state was formed, the Albanian-speaking population and its language were
called Albanian, even if those Christian Albanians were considered an integral part of the
Greek nation and had played a decisive role in the War of Independence between 1821-1828
(Bartholdy, 1993; Bickford-Smith, 1993: 47; Embeirikos, 1994; Vakalopoulos, 1994:243-249).
However, the policy of the new Greek state was to Hellenize all the non-Greek speaking
Orthodox populations within its, then limited, territory as well as in the territories of
Epirus, Macedonia, Thrace and Asia Minor still under Ottoman rule, which were though considered
as part of Greek irredenta. As elsewhere in Europe, army and education were the most
effective mechanisms of Hellenization, assisted by the judiciary system ready to
denounce and punish all forms of behavior inconsistent with the state’s nationalist culture.
Kitromilidis, 1990:38; Kollias, 1994.
Just pay to albanians they will do the jobb, they are the best,history know thats:
Julius Cezar,Aleksaner the great,Ottoman empire and and many of the worlds
empire.All of them conquer the world with Albanians - We just like the songs and fight.

I want tell you that I'm a fanatic lover of the Byzantine culture and I had the ocassion to study it in a satisfactory way, being
emploiedfor almost 8 years at the library of the University of the Architecture in Bucarest, where there are many good books
about this subject.
I have some friends loving the Byzance, with important programs and plans (one who is illustrator want to write a book about
the City, illustrated by him, anothers have scientifical works on Byzantine monuments).
For me is just a love and I thank God that I had the occasion to visit that places.
Fundamentaly, I'm a fervent Christian believer and I try to live like the Fathers of the Orthodox Church. And this make the
love for Byzance even more motivate. I know and I love strong the history of the Church.
I know the Greek traditions in Minor Asia. I'm oscilating to consider this or Greece the most beautiful land in the world. I know
well the archaeological sites of Minor Asia and Greece, I think could write 'hundreds' of pages on this subject just by memory.

I'd like to say well done on very detailed history of the Byzantine Empire. Even though I'm only 19, I've studying about this great empire
recently. I envy the Byzantine Empire, it was one of the greatest Christian empires ever created. I also have a strong feeling that the empire
should be rejuvenated and begin again. I was also appalled by the crimes and genocide that our so called "ally" Turkey has done. I agree
fully that Cyprus should be freed from Turkish occupation and that the United States and Britain should stop being idiots and help Cyprus
reestablish itself under home rule. Well you guys are doing a great job letting others know about these crimes so good luck.

Dear Annette Lawrence,
I see your Greek ex boyfriend has scarred you for life, though with an attitude like
yours, who could blame him for dropping you like yesterday's news And yes, you should definitely
take up with a Turk. Lord knows you should make yourself useful and help a Turkish boy get his
citizenship -- before he too drops you.
And as the Greek-hater you pretend to be, I fail to understand why you torture yourself by being
a "Byzantinist" -- a Hellenic subject matter. I pity you for the confusing state I imagine
you're constantly revolving in. No wonder you sound dizzy. -- or is it you meant Botanist

and believe me I have met many having spent much time in Greece undertaking academic research
(i am a Byzantinist), are rude and generally unpleasant, much like Greek cooking. On the other
hand I have nothing but compliments for Turkey, the kindness of the people and the general
warmth and affection exhibited by all there. I intend never to visit Greece again such is my

Thank you for giving me those web site addresses , thats very kind. Did you know that Turkey
has been paying Ameerica for many years to re write Turkish history? Turkey did have strong
allies , and she also took advanatge of the political climate at the time. I am sure that
Imperial Russia could have helped to restore Bzantuim. However the British , French and Germans
seemed to be supportimg the Ottoman Empire for their own SELFISH reasons. Indeed Greece was
abandoned by its European neighbors. Did you also know that Imperail Germany was aware that
Turkey was conducting a program of Hellenic genocide in Asia Minor??

happened in the Asia Minor catastrophe is being placed on the internet. However my only concern
is the response from some of your other readers. I am a university student and studying the
Greeks that once were in Asia Minor, which is of great interest to me. I find the Trebizond
region to be fascinating, and I would like to have a look there one day. It would be good if you
could give more detailed information about fourteenth century life in Pontos, when their
civilisation was at its height.

suggestions=It's the first time I have entered your website and I am really fascinated. It's
really well done. Congratulations!
I went through all the comments about the site and there was something that surprised me a
lot:the lack of historic knowledge by most Turkish visitors to the web. I don't really know
what goes on in Turkish schools but I suspect historic education is biased in favour of a
pro-Turkish interpretation of history. It is obvious that dictatorial regimes try to embellish
past errors and mistakes. I suppose Turkey is a state that has recently become a democratic
country and therefore people are still suffering the manipulations of dictators such as Kemal
Atatürk and his followers, only interested in creating a strong Turkish identity regardless of
minorities or different viewpoints.
I think it is vital for Turkey to accept its errors if it wants to become a full member of a
democratic Europe. Self-criticism is not a sign of weakness but rather of strength. A clear
example of that is Post Second World War Germany, accepting its responsibility on the Holocaust
and soon after becoming one of the most respected open-minded democracies in the world.
I think countries are like people. It's easier to blame others for your mistakes, but if you
manage to accept your responsibility for those mistakes you grow as a person and are able to
take the reins of your own change. I believe that Turkey is terribly frightened of coping with
its recent past: the Armenian genocide, the expulsion of the Greeks, the repression of
minorities, etc. No wonder! There are fewer countries with a worse human rights record!. There
is this kind of historic amnesia that allows the Turks to keep blaming others because if they
got to know what their ancestors did they could feel really ashamed.
Self-criticism implies looking into the mirror and see reality as it is; it's tough but the
prize is enormous: you know who you are. The opposite is self-deceit and blindness, and history
is full of self righteous fanatics who never wanted to look themselves in the face.
I once went to Turkey and got very angry because the guides never told us about the Byzantine
past. They kept telling us that the ruins were Lydian or Hittite or Roman, but never Byzantine.
They put us off from going and visit the old Byzantine churches because they told us they were
in ruins. The Ottoman remains were the best, according to them. It actually reminds me of what
happened in my country, Spain, while dictator Franco was alive: everything Christian was
valuable and worth studying, reading or visiting; the strong Muslim tradition was frowned upon
and never taught at school. Now we know that our Arab legacy helped shape who we are and some

creata this site, cause it helped me a lot in my project for a lesson of mine. You see, i am
student in NorthPark univercity of Chicago state. Secondly, i would like to say that everyone
in the whole world knows the truth, everyone knows that everything started fron Greece,
everyone apart from the Turks, unfortunatelly. According to all the people here in America,
Roman Empire was a Greek Empire, after all everyone who ruled that Empire was speaking and
writting Greek! Anyway, I curse all the Turks who stopped the Greeks of developing their great
culture, a culture that transfered to the whole world. I would like to say hello to all the
Greeks who should know that here in America we do not forget and one day we will give to the
Turks a great lesson! By the way, did you know that in the begining of the previous century the
word "Turk" was synonimous to "sucker"? A Turk would be very angry if someone called him
"Turk". Fare well my friends!

suggestions=A bit of a simplification, there were Hittites, Lykians, Cilicians, and a whole lot
of other people there before and as well as the Greeks. Definitly Ionia, Aeolia & Caria were
Greek and apart from a lot of Roman building vitually everything post 4th C AD is Greek.
I spent about 7 weeks there and I agree with you all the good things are mainly Greek, Roman
or Byzantine. The place has been on a slide ever since the fall of Constantinople in 1453.
All the ancient & Byzantine historical sites nothing to do with the Turks
apart from being exploited to get Tourist dollars or in the past used as
quarries. I have also noticed they only restore the sites they can charge
Tourists to see. Even Hagia Sophia and the Hippodrome are neglected, and
the Great Land walls of Theodosius are falling to pieces. I saw some Turks
living opposite the wall dumping their garbage in one of the towers.
I've been to Constantinople, the Chersonese, Troy, Kappadokia, Antalya,
Myra, Caesaria, Xanthos, Telmessos, Kaunos,Patara, Ephesos, Halikarnassos
and all are not Turkish.
It's funny that most Turks say The city is not Constantinople it's Istanbul.
They don't even know that Istanbul is derived from the Greek Istan pol(is) -
In the City.

I just happened to see this site when I was searching material for Constantinople and thought this site was
dedicated to the memory of the Queen of Cities. In fact, the pictures and historic information was pretty
well. But when I visited the forum, I noticed some nasty debates were going on. Believe it or not, as a
Turk, I am an admirer of Roman and Byzantian history and culture. And I regret that so few have remained to
our day from these great civilizations. Yes, we Turks have not kept them safe, throughout the decades, and
its a pity. But Turkey is a Republic, just like Greece and deserves better judgement from the Greek people.
We, Turks do not hate you. We want to love you. But most of us become angry of you because some of you
make childish things like putting Greek flags over photos, mentioning Armenian massacre in WWI or some
other sorry events. They are history and we all feel sorry about what happened in the past. But all these
do not have any relation with the new Turkish Republic.
The Ottomans were in control and we all know that they are not the most humanist empire in history.
Yes, they sacked Constantinople, killed those who surrendered, raped the women, children and even the
nuns, desecrated the churches, destroyed valuable icons, put the holy places to fire. I cannot imagine
what they might have done to Emperor Constantine if they captured him on the battlefield. But all these
true events are not present in Turkish history records. All we are told was Mehmet II's glorious
entrance to the city, and his order of leaving the people and the capital unharmed. Of course. this is
from the Turkish point of view, and its wrong. But what about the Greek vision? What about still claiming
Istanbul as a Greek city? Is it totally objective? Nobody is perfect. We have our mistakes and you have
yours. So it is time to put aside our differences and understand each other.
I want to say one more thing to those Turkish barbarians who wrote here all the sexual literature
they know of. YOU CANNOT BE TURKS. You are a bunch of primitive monsters thats all. I'm mostly embarrased of
what you wrote here. You know, you live a lie. If you want to know what happened in 1453 or in 1915 go and
search for some historical content on the net. I am always seeking the truth. And the truth hurts me. My
mother's grandfather killed a young Armenian girl despite her pleas to save her and marry her, because
he was ordered to do so. All his life he regretted and blamed himself of his crime.
I hope, one day we (Turks and Greek) will live in this great city in harmony and bring back it's shining
PS. Byzantian Empire is Roman, not Greek. It may have been influenced by
Hellenistic life style over the centuries, but the Empire was still Roman.

name=The Voice of Basileuousa
country=The Centre of the World
suggestions=A great source of photos which helped me to imagine the
Constantinople... of the Greek and Byzantine era, when it was the capital of
Imperium Romanum. However, you and you friends are insisting on forgetting a
truth: The date *1204 AD makes sense for you? I hope so. That's why when the
siege began in 1453, the people of Istanbul preferred to be living under
Turkish rule instead of that of the Catholics... The benevolence of the
Turks, which can be seen as a strategic mistake, now lets you to talk in
such a pathetic way. Do you think there would be so many churches remained,
as they are if we were not benevolent? We changed Hagia Sophia in to a
museum, as a step to get rid of all the possible idiotic problems between
our religions, though as you know it's a Church-Mosque. Or do you think that
your Patriarch would remain as Patriarch even after more than 500 years in
his position, if we were not benevolent? The Patriarch has all the titles,
except as a political ruler, of the Byzantine Emperor, given by Mehmed the
Conqueror. Would it be possible do you think? If it was the Greeks that
conquered Constantinople from the Turks, they would not show the same
benevolence, this is the absolute truth. You may have your so-called Emperor
Theodoros IX of the so-called Lascaris-Comnenos Dynasty in San Francisco or
dream about the so-called enosis and the Megalo Idea. We'll not liberate the
wonderful city of the Goddess of War and Wisdom - Athens nor your fellows
invade The Centre of the World - the Queen of all of the cities of the world
from New Zealand to Alaska - Istanbul. Actually, if you look into the
history carefully, you'll see that the Greek civilization does not belong to
here, too, in the way you understand the historical facts. The Greeks, like
many other people, have migrated from Asia during very ancient times... Go
and check it carefully if you don't believe me... I hope you also know that
the Patriarch don't like what you are doing... My dear friends, stop losing
your time with trying to get Istanbul and other ancient Greek colonies back,
work for making Greece a state that can rival the United Kingdom or Germany
or Russia. I don't know, even the USA. If you want to work on Constantinople
in some way, then do it in the way that you should do! Make researches on
it, study on it as a civilisation, as your past, Not as a dream. It's truly
impossible or very difficult to find somethings about the Byzantine
Constantinople on the Internet. Work for that. Accept the truth that you
don't have the chance to get Istanbul like we won't get Greece from you.
There is a trick being played between our nations. If you know your history
very well, you'll be quick to see that it was the tactic of the Byzantine
Emperors. We can work together better when we endure our hostilities between
our nations... Remember the date *1204 AD. You'll be betrayed sometime... If
you don't listen to me, listen to Einstein, who said "Don't forget your
past, plan your future but live the moment." Stop living in history start
doing something useful for today. By the way, I have many Greek originated
friends in Istanbul, what I see is that you don't have a chance to get their
favor. They won't support you at all. Guess why? Due to the true benevolence
of the Turks! But I think it's going to take thousands of years you to
understand this. How unfortunate: As a teenager, it should not be my job to
save you from ignorance...
*For the ones who have no idea about 1204 AD - The Fourth Crusade took place
between 1202-1204 and it was aiming to invade the Holy Land, like all of the
8 crusades. The Jewel of Europe was the best at that time: It had the
greatest fortifications, Hagia Sophia had the grandest dome of the world and
although the Empire was getting smaller each passing day, it was stil the
richest and the greatest. There were about 40 years for the Mongolian
Invasion of Asia and Europe... On contrary, Europe was very poor, plague was
everywhere and the Popes were telling the people that "their words were not
belonging to them but belonging to God" (Innocentius III). On their way, the
crusade had to pass Constantinople and hail the emperor. The city was in
gold everywhere, impressive and imposing with its wealth... Guess what? That
crusade decided not to go to the Holy Land but invade Constantinople! This
betrayal led the Empire split into four pieces, the Despots of Mora, south
of Greece, The Empire of Trebizond, the Empire of Nicea and the Empire of
Latins at Constantinople. When Mikhail VIII liberated the city in 1261, the
city was not in very good condition and began to decline as a Byzantine
To sum up what I want to say, there are Turks in Greece and Greeks in
Turkey. We lived peacefully for centuries, and just after the French
Revolution, we became enemies again because others didn't want us to live in
peace together. I've been to many parts of Greece and Greek Islands -
Thesalonikia, Alexandrople, Chios, Rhodoes, Herakleion, Chania, Lesbos,
Samos, Kos, Thera... and met many Greek people and we acted friendly to each
other. I don't know what to say anymore. I hope my writings will be online.

Hi, tonight i visited your site and was thoroughly impressed by what i saw.
Although i myself am not of Hellenic descent, i am a strong admirer of the
culture of the Greek and Byzantine civilization which i believe is the true
creator and protector of western civilization. Always i have admired the
culture, intelligence, creativity, piety, strength, determination and
courage of the people of the Hellenic world. Finally there is a site
dedicated in its own right to the great Byzantine Empire which makes a
proper effort to give it the coverage and credit which this nation truly
I am a dedicated student of history and, though i am only 17, have read
widely about byzantium as well as a range of other civilizations related to
its history, such as the roman empire, persia, the spread of the arabs and
islam, russian civilization, the turks and the crusades. As an admirer of
Byzantine history who wishes also for the TRUTH to be understood i regularly
read and revise many sources of history, both modern and also works of
byzantine authors themselves, such as the commentaries of Prokopios and the
Alexiad of Anna Komnena.
I see your site is very well organised and contains a multitude of areas
which are well documented. However, some areas could be improved and i feel
it is here i could make a contribution, free of charge, to allowing the
truth to be told so that Byzantine civilization can be enjoyed in its true
glory. In particular i would be happy to compose pieces to add to the
emperors section, in which unfortunately the lives and reigns of only a few
emperors are documented. I would also be happy to offer to write and edit in
other areas and to offer advice, again free of charge, to contibute as fully
as i can to making this site as great as the civilization which it
represents. Please reply soon.

suggestions=I think that sites like this do a great service to humanity (including Turkey).
Humanity needs to know what happened and the Turkish people should learn and accept the crimes,
genocides and atrocities their ancestors committed. Only when they assume responsibility and
extend a sincere apology to ALL affected (Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, etc.) then the world can
move on. Instead they are continuing the "policy" of "fire and iron", the only practice their
tribe has perfected.
No one "hates" Turkey or spreads propaganda. We all talk about peace and want it but it is
Turkey who behaves like the bully of the region since 1100 A.D.
Of course it is NOT the Turkish people who are to blame but their government. But since the
government is voted (is it really in Turkey though?) by the people, it is your responsibility
-you the Turks- to modernize and democratize your nation.
It is extremely sad to see that you are being taught a history so different than any other
European (and civilized) country. You must wake up and realize than unless you shape-up you
will always be alienated and remain the outcast of the rest of the world.
Do not fool yourselves with the apparent USA support and backing. They do not care less for you
(on the contrary they dislike your country's lack of achievement) all they want is to USE YOU
for promoting their own interests. Without USA backing you would disintegrate in a matter of
days to the tribal and multiethnic state you were before your "father" Kemal came into play.
Indeed, how can a country adore and worship a person who is responsible for issuing orders
facilitating the killing, raping, death-march, labor camps, stealing, (and many many more)
inflicted on the Armenians, Greeks and other non-Turks throughout the centuries.
You are a constant menace to our region and will continue to destabilize it unless you GROW UP
and realize that the world has changed.
Your hypocrisy is such that you take marvels of art, engineering, religious monuments etc and
instantly baptize them as Turkish culture when your tribe is not known for ever creating
culture, you were nomads and worriors. Most countries have left intact muslim mosques -some of
them open and operating- for muslim people to excercise their religious rights. You have
defaced the mosaics in Agia Sophia, written arabic/muslim all over the interior, prohibited the
priests to perform services, and many many other insensitivites like erecting minares around it
to make it look like a muslim mosque! You are unbelievable! Is this ever possible? Monuments
are left as they were, preserved for the next generations to enjoy and respected as far as
their cultural and religious context. But in Turkey everything non Turkish is treated as evil.
How insecure one must be to be acting like this???
Please! Turkish people. Please take ownership and responsibility! Free your country from the
military junta that operates under the cover and pretext of a democratic/parliamentary system.
You will be making a great service to the world and YOU above all!

it the Lycian, or Phrygian, or Lydian and, and, and. By the while as the
Turks came over Anadolia it has been ROMAN for some hundreds of years
and greek culture became overran by christian laws.
Showing chauvinism in this way is a punch in the face of hundreds of
greek philosophs like plato and aristophanes. Stop this nonsens and try
to get a citizen of the WORLD.
This is how NICE the Turkish people are

TURKEY:THE LAST COLONIAL POWER
I want to congratulate you for your humanistic initiatives to support the
oppressed people in the Turkish prisons and ask from the international
power and its proxy dictatorships to respect their Human Rights.
Turkey pretends that is a democracy, while in reality is the most
authoritarian, feudal and anachronistic regime all over the world, being
responsible for the greatest genocides .
Only within the 20th century is responsible of the genocide of many ethic
groups e. g Greeks, Pontiacs, Armenians, Kurdish, Assyrians, Cypriots e. t.c.
It is outraging that alghough historically have been proved all these
genocides and the international community is aware of them, systematically
it is covering them with silence, treating the Turkish regime with the
greatest friendhip and respect . Turkey is violating the Human Rights of
its citicen brutally.
The hard core of the regime is the Turkish Army from which originates
any power. The people always is in the corner and be oppressed from the
police and the army and exploited from a handful plutocratic families.
Democracy in Turkey is non existent .It is the mask to cheat the "silly"
Turkey is the most unstable country in the area and distabilizes the Balkan
and the East Mediterranean.
It is exporting its troubles and its domestic mesh to the neighboring
countries either with aggression-as happened in Cyprus and Kurdistan , or
with threats of violenmce -as happens against the Greek Islands in Aegean
Sea- or creating crisis with Iraq, Iran, Syria, or undermining the
situation by supporting fundamentalist groups in Bosnia, Kossovo and
Turkey is the "LAST COLONIAL COUNTRY ALL OVER THE WORLD"and it did not
give freedom yet to its 48 ethnic groups to decide not only for their
selfgovernment or autonomy but even to obtain their basic human rights.
Finally Turkey is an aggressor that keeps the northern Cyprus under the
most barbaric military occupation for 27 years. It is responsible for
ethnic cleansing of 200.000 Greek Cyriot, that are refugees in their own
country, for the assasinations of 1670 Cypriot prisoners of war , for the
immigration of thousand people from Anatolia to the Northern Cyprus and at
the same time deportation of the Turkish Cypriots.
For all these illegitimate crimes Turkey avoided scandalously any
sanctions from the U. N, or any other International Court for 27 years .
Turkey is a heavy insult against the humanity and the 21 st century
civilization. It lended from its ally Israel the technic and the
international support and boroewed it the barbarity, brutality and the market.

Dear Mr. F.,
My name is J. G. Jr. and I live in the United States. We in the west do
not give enough credit to Greece and the hellenic world. Greece is the
founder of so much that is good in the world. It is Greece that gave western
civilization is core beliefs: democracy, law, art, architecture. Even more,
Greece gave us the concept of the individual. Democracy rises first in
Greece because the Greeks were the first to believe that individual men had
political rights. Man was not just a subject of a king or an emperor - each
man had a place in political society just like the Greek Hoplite had a place
in the phalanx of his own city-state.
Byzatium was a hellenized Roman Empire, a Christian empire. It's greatness
is overlooked today unfortunately. It stood as a bastion of Christianity
against the cruel muslims for centuries. The west forgets that if it were
not for the Byzantine Empire, the muslim Jihad would have swept over all
Greece and the Greek world came crashing down by the cruel, ignorant muslim
Turks. Because the western world was advancing at the time of the turkish
invasion of south-eastern europe, the west has largely forgotted the cruel
yoke that was placed on Greece and the Balkans by the Turks. This is a
mistake. We should once again affirm our solidarity with Greece and the
Christian Blakan peoples instead of the vile muslims - the same terrorists
that destroyed the World Trade Center Towers are the same muslim terrorists
from Albania attacking Kosovo and Macedonia.
It is with great shame that the pervert Bill Clinton was President of the
United States when the Balkans were aflame with war. He is a corrupt
politician who never read a history book in his life and had no idea of what
was actually happening there. We can only hope that Americans and other
europeans wake up in time to kick the muslims out of europe completely.

suggestions=Very interesting site on a topic that is all too often
forgotten - Byzantium. The Byzantine empire stood, first as simply the
eastern Roman empire and later as an entity in its own right, for centuries,
straddling and linking the ancient world and the medeival western world.
The opinions and editorials on the west's support for muslims people in the
balkans are also being proven right as muslims worldwide spread their
religion by the sword, killing opponents and those of other faiths. Indeed,
the ignorance of the USA and the Clinton administration contributed to the
very islamic militants who attacked us on September 11. The muslim
seperatists in Bosnia (and now in Kosovo and Macedonia) supported and gave
assistance to the very Al Queda terrorists that destroyed the WTC. Clearly,
the US should re-think it's support for muslim groups and people in the
Regarding the Turks, it is interesting that while they were certainly able
to militarily conquer Constantinople, they were clearly inferior to the
Greek people of that empire and unable to advance intellectually or
technologically. One can go to Turkey even today and find large segments of
society living in the same stone-age conditions they lived in when they
conquered the Byzantine empire. Where the Greeks were great thinkers and
builders, the Turks could only kill and conquer in the name of the so-called

I am a Turkish girl and I protest your website, because it doesn't tell the
truth about Turkey! I don't even understand why you have worked so hard to
make a site about Turkey, which doesn't even show the realities... Even I
haven't heard these crimes you tell on your site before, and I live in
Turkey..so there is something wrong don't you think? Because I should know
Turkey better than you...about the man who was killed by a turkish
soldier..I ask you: Will it be different if there was somebody who was
trying to protest Grece? Will a greek soldier let the man go on?? I don't
say that the turkish soldier did the right thing but Turkish people tried so
hard to get this country and people like YOU try to take it back from us!
How many soldier died in this country because of the Kurdish and the
Armenian! How many mothers were upset because of Abdullah Ocalan! But Turkey
still tries to fight against them... You do not know anything about Turkey
because the modern Turkey isn't as you say in your site..yeah, we have too
many problems, political problems especially but I don't think that this is
YOUR problem..I do not really know Grece I just know the special dance...my
grand mother was greek, so I love Grece, but please do not try to make
people think bad about us because nobody hates the Greeks in Turkey....Do
not forget: you can't blame a country because of a few people (think about

What are you trying to achieve, what is the purpose of your insults towards USA and the Turks ?
Everybody that has studied considerable amount of history is surely aware of the things that
happened in Asia Minor and the Greek Peninsula between the
Turks, not Mogols, and the Byzantium Empire. How can you claim that a Hellen Holocaust occured
in Asia Minor, while the studies show that the casualties on the Turkish side during
the 200 years of constant conflict were much higher than that of
Greeks'. What do you have to say about the Greek invasion of Asia Minor after World War I ?
We know that Turks have done unreasonable things in the past, and we also know what
their status and level of social advancement is right now. But the
Greek nation should be more careful with expressing their views about Turkiye and Cyprus,
taking into consideration the fact that in a possible Turkish invasion of Greece scenerio,
the Western powers will not hesitate to support the Turkish side. Even
without the Western support, it is known that Turkiye's military and economic power
is overwhelmingly superior to Greece's; the Turkish military could easily take
control of Athens in 8 to 12 hours. If you have something solid; a valid
argument, take it to UN or the US Congress, otherwise just keep your mouth shut.

Xerete to all. First I would like to congratulate this website for its
accurate information and dedication to TRUTH. It is true, Konstantinoupoli is
the epicenter of Orthodoxy, even today. After 600 years of being literally
surrounded by turkish oppresion, it remains viral and very much ALIVE. The
church of Agia Sophia can be adorned with muslim script and artwork, however
no one can change its structure or foundations- of a central plan Greek
Orthodox Church. Reading the comments and suggestions of Greeks and Turks in
this forum, I see that many Turks are considerate to the Greek culture. I
thank you for that. To those who vainfully attempt to disfame Hellenism, and
call GREEKS of all people "barbarians," I have to say the following: Greece
IS the cradle of Western Civilization. A barbarian was one who did not speak
GREEK. "BAR-BAR" in Greek means "BLAH-BLAH". Turks now profit from Greek
monuments which attract attention and everyone who goes to Turkey sees Greek
achievements, temples, palaces, monuments, CHURCHES TURNED INTO mosques. One
who knows TRUTH can see the Glory of Greece and the Byzantium. You can
change the names of our fallen cities to you. While we studied philosophy,
astronomy, astrology, history, mathematics and science, you studied theft.
While we lived in the palaces, you lived in trees. If we cry, it is because
its new host is unworthy of its stolen glory. To my fellow Greeks I'd like
to give assurance with an old Greek spiritual: "Sopase Kira Despina kai min
polidakrizis.. pali me xronia, me kairous, pali DIKA MAS tha'ne."

Hello to my greek and turkish friends. i was searchimg
for some information about the detailed history of
istanbul and i ended up reading the words written
without sufficient information in this site. you( the
web master) should give more attention to why it is
captured by turks, what are the crusades, who turks
are. We call it ottoman empire that stopped the
crusades and prevent innocent people from being killed
in crusades, not barbarians. and what is hellenism?
its not greek as it's not turkish or arabic. its true
that Greek people was an indispensable part of
hellenism which is a combination lots of beautiful
cultures from anatolia, egypt, mesopotamia to greece.
what do u expect from this site. I think istanbul is
the most beautiful cities in the world where turkish
greek armenian and jewish people live in peace. do u
want to convert it to kudus where people from
different cultures kill each other. you call us
barbarians however you have barbarian thoughts. you
provacate greek people. You dont have rights to
represent greek people. Cause I m SURE people who
thinks as you do, are a minority in greece. you dont
have right to assemble a greek flag onto turkish flag
and hide the turkish flag. ottoman empire ruled athens
for hundreds of years but we turks call it athens now
as you do. because we respect you and you should
respect us. there is no other way. in addition listen
to the song of the music group called "they might be
giants". the name of the song is "Istanbul (not constantinople)" bye friends!!

were greek, they were and considered themselves as romans.

Your sight is quite intresting in it's details about the struggle for
greek independence and such. One thing I would like to see, ( I hope that I
am not imprudent ) is a piece of the website dedicated to the ruin that came
about in Constantinople once the Turk took over. Hippodrome, gone, Byzantine
Senate House ( a most wonderful place ) turned into a spa. If not a piece on
this then maybe you could suggest in a link where one, such as I could find.
One bone of contention, you speak of a Kurdish home land, yet you speak
against the Turks for their brutal killings of Armenians. Surely you know
that Sultan Abdul Hamid used Kurdish irregullars to smite whole provinces of
Armenians. You hold the Turk accountable for their actions, why not the
Kurd. True, the Turk used them, but it is not like the Kurds did not profit
from it and carried them out even when officially not called on.
