Greece quits Turkey children's games over N.Cyprus
Turkey celebrates the April 23rd National Sovereignty and Children’s Day with world’s children on Saturday. April 23, 2011.
Children from 90 countries including the United States, China, Azerbaijan and Armenia, are competing in 13 branches in the games, opened on Sunday to mark the April 23 National Sovereignty and Children’s Day.

Greece withdrew on Monday from the world children’s games taking place in Ankara, Turkey, showing participation of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) as a reason.

Ankara’s Mayor Melih Gokcek said the Greek team withdrew from the games on the first day of the First World Children’s Games organized by the Municipality and Directorate General of Youth & Sports.

“It is not possible to accept such an ill-minded and saddening behavior that makes children a tool of politics,” Gokcek said.

Gokcek said the organizers had rejected Greece’s demand to exclude TRNC from the games, and defined Greece’s behavior as a stroke on world peace and friendship.

If the FOPG (Former Ottoman Province of Greece) aren’t stealing someone else’s heritage or denying the human rights of others they’re posturing their pompous superiority with their propaganda. It’s sad but the world is growing tired of this bankrupt paranoid socialist government. The Greek people’s only hope is an Egyptian style revolution.
