Ataturk was the great leader and soldier. Everybody knows Greek army ran behind the Megalo Idea in the middle of Anatolia as British tongs. They lost the war and started to ran away and killed civilian people. Greek Officers tried to stop this tragedy. Please respect to the History.

Why is it that you Turks never mention Liman Von Sanders, or the Treaty of London 1915 which had promised compensation to Italians in Anatolia (hence why they supported you with weapons) or the fact that Jan. 1922 France provided you with weapons (see Feb. 15 1922 complaints towards Loyd George about this) How about the Batum issue which gave you Russia's major economic support and weapons?

You guys speak of respecting history but unfortunately you either ignore it or know your own nit-picked version of it.

Human civilisation (or the lack of it on this forum) is a common achievement.
A lot of racist Greek contributors accuse the Turks of not having contributed anything to civilisation.
So here's a small sample of the things Greeks learnt from the Turks:
TURKISH COFFEE = GREEK COFFEE
BAGLAMA = BAGHLAMA
CIFTETELLI = TSIFTETELI
DOLMA = DOLMADES
YOGURT = YAOURTI
ZEYBEK = ZEIBEKIKOS
KEYIF = KEIFI
tava = tavas
TAVAN = TAVANI
KAVGA = KAVGAS KAVGATZIS (LIKE MANOS!)
KAZAN = KAZANI
KAZIK = KAZIKI
KAZMA = KAZMAS
KAYIK = KAIKI
KALAYCI = KALAITZIS
KALFA = KALFAS
KABAK = KAPAKI
KAPLAN = KAPLANI
KARA = KARAS
KARPUZ = KARPOUZI
KASHAR = KASERI
SHERBET = SERMPETI
tarama = taramas
FISTAN = FOUSTANI
SEVDALI = SEVDALIS
ROUGHLY 20 PERCENT OF present GREEK VOCABULARY!
SO WHAT HAVE THE TURKS EVER GIVEN TO THE GREEKS?
WELL JUDGING FROM THE SMALL SAMPLE ABOVE
BEFORE THE TURKS CAME ALONG THE GREEKS DID NOT KNOW HOW TO:
EAT
DRINK
DRESS
DANCE
OR
FALL IN LOVE.
SO WHAT DID THEY DO?
BUGGER ALL!(apart from doing a lot of philosophising they were after all renown for all sorts of weird sexual perversions!)
This is all a bit tongue-in-cheek of course, but when you get racist idiots like that maniac Manos, who goes on racial supremacy you have got to hit them where it hurts! In the 'tashak's (or bollocks)
as many turks hate to admit it but many have admitted it.........all the above including the turkish flag is "GREEK BYZANTINE CONTINUITY"......... "GREEK BYZANTINE CONTINUITY IS NOT A POPULAR IDEA IN TODAYS TURKEY BUT IT IS THE TRUTH"turkish professor said..........for something truly turkish visit mongolia..........

ben, what a weak argument. So the turks may have influenced Greeks with some words ( which are not even turkish derived to begin with!). What have turks contributed towards mankind, name 5 things which the turks contributed towards mankind which are significant achievments for the ages.
u must be an idiot if you think turks did not invent anything and will name you 5 achievements throughought the ages
1. Turkey invented the first innoculation/ vaccine for smallpox
2. Prof. Dr. Hulusi Behçet, a Turkish dermatologist, discovered and diagnosed "Behçet's Disease
3. first nation to make live Christian Musliman Jewish and Buhdist under one state
4. the first state who gave women the right to be elected as politician and voter
5. First nation to give a special day for kids 23 april by Ataturk

You really are just a Malaka. Did you ever stop and think that those words originally came from Greeks, and you just ripped them from us? That's the best explanation since the fact that without the Greeks, there really wouldn't be anything in this world. Read deep into history in detail and you will see. But I know for a fact that the real reason why turks ''tried'' wiping out the Greeks is because they were jealous of our good looks, culture, history and everything else great that goes with us. I think that's funny.:D

if we tried to wipe you out there would be less greeks and greece would probably be called helenistan

what you wrote is a load of shyt

i agree greek contributed to worldly developments but dont think its so bad the sun shines outa your ass
and i agree therer were much to learn from greeks

funny though ,here you are telling us how good greeks were and advanced yet you cant evan save yourselves !!!

in my opinion Apart from the usual b!tch fights on the internet, greeks and turks go very well together

Borrowed BY GREEKS???????? ARE YOU INSANE????

Afaroz Excommunicate Aforismos

Aforismos is a greek word! Afairo means to subtract (first major mistake)

Ahtapot Octopus Htapodi
Htapodi you idiot comes from Octo (number eight in greek) and Podi which means foot. Octapodi = has 8 legs (second major mistake)

Anfora Anchor Amphoreus
The word Amphoreus existed 2000 years before you Orcs even learned how to speak.It doesn't mean anchor but the jar you put wine/oil/olives/almonds ...no comment on this one (third major mistake)

Demet - Bouquet- Demati
Dematio comes from Dema which in turn comes from the verb dennw which means to bind...since packages or bouquets are binded to keep them in one piece this is also another idiocy from Dervis....( another major mistake)

Dervis,
you and your orcs are uneducated and ignorant. Don't try to claim that ancient greek words are turkish because this only shows your level of knowledge. It is currently just above the earthworm.

LAME Dervisi LAme...thinking that such a linguistic treasure as the Greek language is the Kerhanes of your tribe...

I am not saying we don't have turkish words. Of course we do and they are really funny to use, but you need to better educate yourself on what is really yours because we can distinguish which one is the loan word in our language and from where.
