Ireland is an interesting case. Much of the north, like the south, has a Celtic heritage, even after Protestants were settled there from England and Scotland. At the end of the day, Ireland is ONE island, and the fact that it is divided because of a minority (that doesn't come close in comparison to the majority in numbers) is a disgraceful stain on the UK.

[QUOTE=Soldier of Macedon;86233]TM, from which book are these photos?[/QUOTE]

The first two pictures are from Mark Mazower's "Salonica, City of Ghosts' and the last picture is from Alexander Hidden's "The Ottoman Dynasty".

Does it give a year for the photos?

The grks can't even decide who they are it's a midlife identity crisis.

No probs, thanks mate.

George S. 01-19-2011 12:28 PM

well the grks should accept the fact that they ain't so pure & have to get used to their albanian roots.

How many Albanians are employed in ROM's military today ? Are we to deduce there are no Macedonians due to the fact you have Albanian regiments enlisted ? I dont get the topic of this thread.

Mark Mazower had a listing of Slav toponyms in Peloponeese Greece. I heard it was pretty good. I dont remember the title of the book. Anybody know ?

[QUOTE=Onur;86325]Creation of Greece is actually a result of madness.

Creation of Greece is a result of Turkey's creation as well. Both happened at the same time. Show a little objectivity Onur.

You meant the time when German king kicked out by Brits to bring Venizelos in charge?

I was referring to 1820s and 1890s in that post. The time when Arvanites killed their muslim kinsmen besides Turks in Morea and when the christian Greeks massacred muslim Greeks beside Turks in Crete. Thats what i called as "madness". So, read the rest of that post.

But for the objectivity, i can say that the Greek invasion of Anatolia in 1919(mostly Arvanites, again! read this thread) was the primary event which encouraged people to create new Turkey.
