Greeks became pashas ,vizers,commanders in Ottoman army and buracracy it explains why Greeks preserved their culture ,language and religion. Ý spoke with some Greek frinds. They said Ottomans made assimilatons and pressure on religion. its a false thought. to say honestly Greeks and the other groups like jews and Armenians were more powerful in Ottoman trade and taxation rights they gained more wealth and power. although Turks were thouhght to be reserves for war. a national govermantal structure was fond by Jon Turks just before Balkan Wars..and hardly stopped greek expansion after first world war. what are your thoughts , is it a possibility of a new war ? History says it s a real possible thing. or both countries must order good relations
