all three paintings depict Greeks...why you post Greeks?The first is called "Greek Guard", by George Percy Jacob Hood) the second is my neighbour Andreas Lontos and the third you can read it yourselves...
Malaka ....the thread is "Greek and Albanian National costume "
dont step on your shoe laces have a Frap'e
It is high treason for a Greek or Serb to acknowledge Albanians as descendants of the Illyrians
It keeps their conception of a Quasi Genetic unity of each of their races together -Fact-
I am sure the Greeks being for close to 450 years without a place they can call their own, were in state of disarray... they needed a leader who can set them on the right path.... it took time but by 1922 they showed their true fighting spirit..even though they lost the battle but not the war... they gained more lands... and in WW2 ... they played a pivotal role in helping the allies... and agian gained more land...(Dodecanisa) 12 islands in the Aegean that were governed by Italy..
What was the world hoping to see? A beaten people with no home.... most of the Greek intelligentsia moved to Italy and helped start the Renaissance.Others were in Russia and England ,it was they that helped the Greeks and no one else.... by lobbying hard to the main powers back then....
yea... a flag with the Greek cross on it... would you raise it?
