kuzenos pezzevengos kuru will expain to you what kind of clothes they wore. it certainly was not what you pusgouis wore over at the ellinigi part which was foustanella and pom poms.

enjoy.



Here is a guy who can laugh at himself, is he "Greek"?

...i ask, is there a Turk, anywhere, who laughs at "Turkishness", and is this funny?

(Probably in Canada, or in the USA, (maybe in Australia, an Australian), a Canadian, an American, i imagine)

...what is wrong with Cypriot?

The Ottomans couldn't kill everybody at once because then there would be nobody to work for them and pay them taxes something which would have resulted in their empire being weak and not long lasting. The Ottomans did what was best for them. What would bring them more money and greater stability. They did no favors to anybody. The Turks in fact hold the record in the greatest number of committed genocides. Therefore history proves they have no moral issues in committing genocides if this would suit them.
