Hmmm!Francis you really look like a turk who fakely pretends to be european changing the name but anyone can easily sense that the fact that you are just a turk in your brown anatolian color as i have:)
Let me tell you everyone a few of the truth before the Kemalist-Saudi owned government send me to their jails.
There are a lot of things about Anatolian history that are kept from the people in Turkey because of the dictatorship(turco-arabic islamist imperialism), the regime, historical Kemalist ideology and now Post Kemalo-Qubist administration the AKP(well oil sponsored by Saudi crime family and 55 percantagely voted by turkish people).
Think about it, there used to be a completely different ethnic, religious, linguistic and cultural reality in Anatolia before Muslim conquest. Most people spoke Greek and other Indo-European languages and a few of them who were in Administration parts of the Ottoman Empire spoke just Arabic.
For instance Luwite People during the bronze age of Anatolia reminds me alevite people of modern Anatolia that were firstly christianized in Hellenistic period, later islamized in Ottoman rule pretends to be muslim without believing to quran, attending to mosques or marrying to non alevite ones(marrying to armenians were an exception during ooooppsss! to survive victims) and although there has been always declared in the constitution that The Republic of Turkey is very(never ever exists on the action!!!!!) secular state some people in Turkey still struggle to express their own cultural, religious or personal point of views.I am raised in Bosporus part of Turkey and had lots of islamic humuliation so how in the world europeans had islamic racism against to non muslim sects who was belong to a race that there is even no color differencies
Anyway almost all part of Turkey even the Bosphoric side that you mentioned are full of mixed with the different kind of Anatolian People and especially have strong ties to Eastern parts too.
Just forgive me
those were the real life experiences that i have had.I wish Anatolian People and the other kind of Regions people would just be themselves while staying on a respectful side to person human beings and non person-human beings!
