    Yes, but what makes you link East Euro to Black Sea? Wouldn't you consider that my South Asian and SW Asian components could be linked to my paternal line which is L? Because, if the Gedrosian...

    Kemalists comprise of Alevis, which are de facto secularists, and secular nationalist Sunnis. Quite a big part of the Islamists comprise of religious Sunni Kurds. If Kurdistan establishes its...

    It is wrong, but not because it doesn't have its own sense of logic. What we refer to as "nation" was called "millet" in the Ottoman period. Millet was differentiated according to the religion. So,...

    I don't ignore Turkey's involvement in the development of ISIS, but Washington is not as pure as the driven snow. You have to comprehend that in the first place. I do have an objective view towards...

    Almost forty thousand Turkish soldiers were killed by PKK over the last 20 years. Let me tell you how you wanted to liberate Northern Kurdistan in a peaceful way. Some rat founded a vile terrorist...

    Why do you expect Turkey to intervene? Turkey is not responsible for the existence of IS, but you are. It is your fault, that's what happens when you aid Taliban against commies in Afghanistan, and...

    I tend to think that it was around late Bronze Age that Scytho-Siberians, and later Tocharians had contact with proto-Turkic.

    Ottomans were, due to Islam, fundamentally and philosophically opposite to Christianity. Too bad Mehmed II didn't accept the invitation of Pope Pius II.

    Yes, it is certain that the local Byzantine commoners didn't just evaporate, but merged into the Turkic newcomers. Latin changed for Greek, and Imperial cult changed for Christianity. It seems like...

    Suspicious loanwords between IE and Turkic

    I guess earth and jord are derivatives of each other. Meaning of yurt is "the place of residency" or "homeland" in Turkic. The main reasoning is that earth,...
