    I'm not offended, stop saying that. It's stupid, I didn't write anything that would suggest that. It's just factually wrong, that's all. They do look closer to northern Greeks and it is well documented by anthropologists. You can even google photos simply. Romanians have a lot of darker-pigmented slavic looking types you won't find in either Albania or Greece.
    Kundera (1984) arguing for central European identity:
    Indeed no other part of the world has been so deeply marked by the influence of Jewish genius......
    another thing that makes the Jewish people so precious to me
    Russia is seen not just as one more European power but as a singular civilization, an other civilization
    Jews are western and European. Russians are foreign and not truly connected to other Europeans.

    They can look like Arvanites in Epirus (which borders Albania) and other places were Arvanites settled, but on average they really don't look like Greeks at all

    I want to correct something. There are not Arvanites in Epir. Arvanites are Albanians who during the middle age migrated from South Albania, i.e. Epir in Greece. The Albanians of Greek part of Epir call themselves Shqiptar, i.e. Albanians, like us. Meanwhile Arvanites continue to preserve the meddieval name, Arbror but also they use Shqiptar.

    There is a spirit of independence and a love of the country, in the whole people, that, in a grater measure, does away the vast distinction, observable in other parts of Turkey, between the followers of of two religions. For when the natives of other provinces, upon being asked who they are, will say, we are Turks or, we are Christians. A man of this country answers, I am an Albanian. -John Cameron Hobhouse

    Yeah but in Greece we call those in Epirus as Arvanites, I know that in their dialect they call themselves Sqhiptar

    [QUOTE=brennus dux gallorum;4777189]I think that Greece is intermediate, between S. Slavs and Mediterranean Europeans[/QUOΤΕ]

    I disagree here, I don't view Greece as an intermediate of anything, especially as something between Spain and FYROM/Bulgaria, which is wrong imo.
