What you feel about the Turks is wrong, what happened between youre two peoples happened centries & centries ago. Its time to move on. Look forward dont look back.
Its the 21st. Century times have changed !, if youre Greek political leaders have moved on & become mutual respectful neighbourly friends with the Turks, i'am sure you can too !
Traditional enemies will never become friends,

Crete, February 1897
"In February 1897 Turks were slaughtered by the thousands. In the district of Sitia alone, 851 Persons (including 374 children) were killed. The eighty Muslim villages of Central Crete were entirely destroyed.
The massacre was stopped only by the timely arrival of British and French military units. An eye-witness to the slaughter, a woman from the village of Roukaka, in the district of Sitia, gave the following deposition to French officials:
"Christians threw Halime, the pregnant wife of Huseyin Mehmedakis, on the ground and slit open her belly, taking the foetus out. They also knifed Fatime, daughter of Mustafa Omer Efendakis, cutting her open from her ******s to the middle of her back.
They pushed the men into the mosque and, as they killed them, hurled them from the minaret, which they then set ablaze with gasoline. Dogs were running all over the village carrying half-burnt hands and feet. The children were stabbed to death, and a few were crushed beneath the minaret when it collapsed."
One question. Gasoline? In 1897? In Crete?

What Pristina people have to do with Erdogan and his political situation ? What they got to do with that ? Whats the message of their rally for Erdogan's support?
__________

Erdogan is another islamic dictator, like there are many all over the world.

His party is islamic party, same like Morsi and his Muslim brothers of Egypt. What that means that they do not represent Christian Copts?

Imagine situation that ruling party of Greece or Serbia or even Albania is called Orthodox brothers.

Wrong. It gives people hope in salvation and teaches them to live happier and healthier life, even in unfortunate times.

The only problem is bad people use it for their own mental sicknesses, for example vatican, or muslim countries
