[/quote] No, Imvros and Tenedos were exempted from the population exchange in 1923 and were ethnically cleansed in the 60's. Turkish state established an open prison in the islands that were terrorizing the population, at the end they weren't even permitted to agriculture their own lands, confiscation of properties and had to flee, settlers for mainland Turkey came in to fill the gap. [/quote] Interesting that you know that most Greeks do not know Imbros or Tenedes. My family comes from there, my family were all farmers agriculturing the land until the war in Cyprus broke out thats when tensions started again. The Greek Government sold those islands and the Greek people living there to the Turks, without caring what will happen to them. [/quote] Sorry about this John. :hf: There's a new book about Imbros/Tenedos, this is the promotional video with Imbriotes talking about their homes, you might like it. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhFLzDQAnbM I grew up in North Greece where most of the people from Pontus and Asia Minor came after the exchange, so these things are regularly talked about here. Cyprus issue covered these tragic events in Istanbul, Imbros, Tenedos too, in the 20 years that the Cypriot crisis lasted the last 150 thousand Greeks have been deported and had their properties confiscated from modern Turkey. This is was the problem after the 50's, they have way too aggressive minority policy by persecuting the ones in their country and not letting the ones outside their country to assimilate, in fact Turkish state does whatever it can so these people won't assimilate either in Greece, Germany, Holland etc. They always use them for their own geopolitical interests, i expect major minority shit-stirring by the Turkish state in Greek Thrace soon.

Greek govt government seems to have decided to submit coordinates for the outer limits of the Greek continental shelf to the United Nations in the first months of 2013. On June 9th 1995, the Turkish parliament officially declared that unilateral action by Greece would constitute a casus belli.
