The secret report from the Director of the English Military Intelligence to the English Foreign Ministry:

"After the fire in Izmir, additional information on Greek and Turkish tyranny was sent. The commissions of Allies conducted investigations in Thrace in addition to the cases of execution, killing, arson and pillage and the findings are as follows:

The city walls (on Muratlı and Çorlu), villages of Çakmak and Suluf were set on fire by Christian residents. Greek infantrymen took part in the acts of ransacking perpetrated in this village. Kariş and Diren were set on fire; some people were executed or killed. Acts of execution, exile and pillage were perpetrated in Çorlu, Türkbey and Uzunköprü. 17 men were taken hostage.

Greeks seized a lot of belongings and cattle. 15 000 Drahmis were extorted with the threat of setting the villages on fire. The mosque in Samonköy was damaged. Systematic acts of pillage were perpetrated in Ulaman by Greek soldiers and refugees. All the people in the mosque in Türkmen Çiftliği were shot to death on October 18. Some were beaten; some tortured and similar incidents were reported in Boztepe (*)."

"London Observer" You can dig deep and find all the violent insidends that were committed against the Turks, most of them in retaliation for Turkish attrocities that preceeded them and you would find only a handfull. BUT you do not have to dig at all to find Turkish attrocities against others as there are on the surface for anyone to see.
You could write a twenty volume encyclopedia of Turkish atrocities and you would only go back less than one hundred years leaving a few bloody centuries of Turkish history uncovered.
As for ARSON, your new 18th century weapon, no one can do it better than Turkey today. You were experts even back then. Do you remember the setting on fire of several Greek islands in the 1820's? Do you remember CHIOS that you have burned from one side of the island to the other side?
I thought you had some more brains than some others on this forum, eventhough I had my reservations. How come you keep discussing topics that shame your country? Did you have to mention ARSON? Think man use your remaining brain and not your arrocance.

London Observer, Turkish crimes have been documented by the west too.

Those Turkish crimes were committed before Greece sent any soldiers to Anatolia.

Those Turkish crimes were on a far, far larger scale.

If Greeks are barbaric what does that makes the Turks ?
