mikecanaris said:I have seen Albanians,especially in kosovo praying in the middle of the street.... I also know there are places in Kosovo that look like eastern Turkey... Now I understand some Christian Albs get offended at the term.... I agree with you that it is offensive.... but to the mulsim albs in was never really offensive 100 years ago..in fact some of them thought of it as a compliment.... it just it the last 30 years... and the ongoing self realization that has been sweeping parts north of Greece.. some people are proud to be called Albanians ,Bosnians ect..instead of being tied in to the Turks...
lol, you've never been in Kosovo, I lived there and I never saw an Albanian pray in the street. What a lie. haha
We don't take religion as seriously as you Greeks do, and kill for religion. Our religion is Albanianism.
Donnie ,your type have had "good' relations with Turks ever since Scandeberg died..basically you sold him out and stabbed him in the back...and you're proud of it.... and have that 'matter of fact' attitude about the whole thing..to us it reeks putrid meat... just laying out the facts we Greeks believe in, weather or not you give a chit or not.... we don't either.
Ever since Gjergj Kastrioti died? Did you know that Albanian land (albania and kosovo) had the least investments in the whole Ottoman Empire? Now do you know why? Here is the answer, because for all of the 500 years of occupation, we fought against their oppression and the whole area was looked by the Ottomans as a military zone, so all they did was fight there. While you (the greeks) and the Serbians were enjoying the ties with the Ottomans, marrying with them, and enjoying killing Albanians.
Do you know who really stabbed Gjergj Kastrioti on the back? The Christian Europe together with all other Balkan nations who didn't give crap about the fight and didn't help fight the Ottomans. (until 1900s, when Ottoman empire was already weak)
*Gotta give credit to Hungary here as well as some Italians, who helped
You guys have had success over the last couple hundred years, lying to the whole world about us Albanians, but finally things are changing and Illyria is getting back to its roots, while Serbia and Greece will only get smaller, just like they were 2000 years ago, when only Illyrians ruled the Balkans.
