Looks we just discovered a new race: the Turks!
Tennis star Marcos Baghdatis
Watch the dhimmies & the politically correct wankers cringe:
DEFIANT tennis star Marcos Baghdatis, captured on film chanting offensive slogans on a party video, says he was just sticking up for his country.
Footage of the Greek Cypriot tennis star arm in arm with the alleged ringleader of a confrontation with police at the Open and chanting “Turks out of Cyprus” has ignited fury among Melbourne’s Turkish Cypriot community, with one leader calling for him to be kicked out of the country.
Australian Turkish Cypriot Cultural and Welfare Association president Hakki Suleyman accused Baghdatis of a racist attack and said he should be expelled from the Australian Open and booted out of the country.
But Baghdatis today refused to budge.
“There has been a lot of coverage of me appearing in a video on youtube.com,” the tennis sensation said in a statement.
“In that video from 2007 I was supporting the interest of my country, Cyprus, while protesting against a situation that is not recognized by the United Nations.
“Now I would like to concentrate on the tournament and ask everyone to respect that. I love the Australian Open and want to do well here.”
Several clips on video-sharing website YouTube show Baghdatis at a barbecue hosted by the Hellas Fan Club after he was knocked out of last year’s Open and reportedly singing “Turks out of Cyprus”.
Premier John Brumby warned fans and players there was no room for ethnic rivalries at sport events.
“There is no place for ethnic rivalry in sport in our state,” Mr Brumby said.
“It’s one thing to get out there and support your player, but it’s another to get into the business of ethnic rivalry and there is no place, I think, in Melbourne in our sporting culture for over-zealous ethnic rivalry,” Mr Brumby.
Members of the Hellas Fan Club were at the centre of a capsicum spray row with police at the Open on Tuesday night.
Mr Suleyman said his association would write to Tennis Australia, the State Government and other organisations calling for Baghdatis to be expelled from the Australian Open and the country for abusing his position.
“When you become a professional sportsman you have to be careful about what you are saying and it doesn’t matter where you are, you are followed and it can be used against you,” he said.

But now, lets all call in unison: Turks out of Cyprus!
* On the 20th of July 1974, Turkey launched a military invasion by air, land and sea against Cyprus
* Turkey claims it ‘had the right’ to take unilateral military action purportedly to restore constitutional order. No international body or organ has recognised this position.
* Turkey invaded Cyprus in two waves on the 20 July and 14 August occupying 37% of the island’s territory contrary to a series of UN Security Council and UN General Assembly resolutions demanding the end of all military action in Cyprus and the removal of the Turkish army from the island.
* Today, although Turkish Cypriots have full free movement and settlement rights throughout the island as citizens of the Republic of Cyprus, Greek Cypriots are still being prevented from returning to their homes and properties in the Turkish occupied areas.
* No land that has once been conquered by the Muslim army must ever be returned to the infidels…
* No land once part of dar al-Islam can ever fall under Infidel control again. The whole world belongs to Allah, and to his people, the Believers, but pride of place must go to the territories once conquered by the forces of Islam. The land on which Israel now sits, and other lands, including the Balkans, much of south-central Europe, much of Russia, most of India, and of course Spain, were once all part of dar al-Islam, and must be returned to it.
* There goes Cyprus…
Islam undoubtedly requires women to cover their heads, Turkey’s head of religious affairs said yesterday in a statement that coincides with the current discussions on lifting the headscarf ban in universities.
“As long as a woman says ‘I am a Muslim,’ she should cover her head,” Professor Ali BardakoÄŸlu, president of the Religious Affairs Directorate, said in an interview with the private NTV channel.
“Discussions on the necessity of wearing headscarves or head coverings are of a legal and political nature. In religious terms, there is no doubt that they should,” he said, adding that Islamic rules, dating back centuries, are unalterable.
“Politicians may forbid or allow the wearing of headscarves,” BardakoÄŸlu said. “It is not my duty to tell them what to do,” he added. “Whether Muslim women abide by the rule is up to their will,” BardakoÄŸlu said, noting that the headscarf dispute can be solved with dialogue between political parties.
