    Kurds are, like Greeks were, ethnicities the Turks decided they want nothing to do with. In their effort to clear their country of them they went to great extremes.

    It is a fact that Kurds being a proud people fought back and that action was and still is considered as terrorism and under that pretext they were harshly persecuted. Kurds in their effort to save their lives fled to many countries, Greece included. Greeks having had the same treatment before them, are strongly connected to that fate and that is why there is a large number of them in Greece.
