Indeed much of the modern world owes a great deal to the Ancient Greeks - but contemporary Greece now owes virtually everything to pretty much the rest of the world!

@Kemal H - whilst you may deride what the Greeks have provided to the civilised world, you have yet to answer the initial question which is what have the Turks provided?At the end of the day this is the modern world and we can do without more wars and complications.Turkey is a big enough landmass and does not require to expand further therefore it should settle land claims with all its neighbours, and it and everybody else can live peacefully.

@ Kirios . The democracy you speak of was very selective wasn't ancient Greek society heavily reliant on slaves for the function of the Greek state. Forgive me the last time I checked, Syria was claiming to be a democratic state. Maybe old Bashar al-assad is mistakenly based his style of democracy on ancient Greek model .Medicine was stolen from the Chinese, philosophy was borrowed from ancient Egypt. As for Greece enriching the English Language, I think you mean literature. Total Greek baloney

@john albay - Afrika is a newspaper printed in the northern part of Cyprus and reports on issues in the northern part of the island of Cyprus. What is your reposne to that?

@ Vangelis. The Greek Mumbo Jumbo history or Hollywood myths that surround the inept Greeks about the prowess in a field of battle. Firstly the Greeks gained their independence by bribing the 5.000 Ottoman Albanians and ethnic Greek troops based in Greece. As for the Spartans I have seen that movie and its great family day out at the pictures, but you must not come out of the cinema my Greek friend feeling ten feet tall thinking you have just witnessed history.

@mark mark what you read in the greek occupied zones newspapers are the usual greek cypriot lies and fact twisting so you can not belive one word of it!@vangelis you would agree with rubbish so your comments are not valid! I just hope that the bail out of your zone will still allow you to have enough money to pay for your electric bill so you can keep posting online and reading in a Turkish newspaper the truth about your zone and its corrupt leader.

What is wrong with you all banging the drunms of war, particularly, the Turksih commentators? The explanation for this can be found in the Cypriot news, read Afrika. The story as described on this site has no basis on fact and is nothing more than vile nationalist propaganda.

This is a typical Turkish ploy fabrication to incite unrest in Cyprus...a so-called "report" that claims "Men who claimed to be Greek Cyprus police" ..reminds me of Turks bombing mosques in Cyprus to incite anger and hatred against Greek Cypriots. Turkey wants another pretext again so it can take all of Cyprus and get its hands on the hydrocarbon deposits. This "news story" has as much merit as the last one Turkey fabricated, about 20K Israeli troops to be stationed in Cyprus...not buying it.

Kemal H. boy when you send vast armies against people who always during their history were very few, then you will win at the end. As for Greek victories against Turks you forget some cases like our Revolution in 1821 and the Balkans Wars where we had the best army of the area for around a decade. As for military history full of defeats I don't think that Spartans and Atheneas would agree with you
