urban

Definition funny of Constantinople:

urbanCapital of the Byzantine Empire. Was established as New Rome by Constantine the Great in the 4th century A.D. (The Byzantine Empire was actually the Greek-speaking Eastern half of the Ancient Roman Empire, which offically fell in 476 A.D., with the deposition of Romulus Augustus.)Constantinople became the center of Orthodox Christianity after the Great Schism of 1054. Constaninople was sacked in 1204 by Western invaders during the 4th crusade, who then established the "Latin Empire." Even though Constantinople was retaken by its rightful owners in 1261, it never again regained its former glory. The weakened city was taken by the opportunistic Ottomans less than 200 years later, in 1453. Now in a state of disarray, the city of Constantinople is called "Istanbul" by it's Ottoman occupants. It is understood by most and argued by many that Constantinople is the rightful property of Greece. It is the opinion of many that the Turkish government should give back what wasn't theirs to take in the first place.

urbanSince then, the Ottoman Empire has fallen, and the upstarts that inherited the broken nation seem to think they still have a right to be in Constantinople.

urbanProper Name for a City on the Bosporus Straits between Europe and Asia. Under occupation by Muslim invaders for more than 600 years now. At the hands of these captives, it is and has been the site of racist anti-Christian Pogroms, Genocide, and government-sanctioned looting and destruction of property of any and all of the Christian churches there. Proper ownership of this city would either go to the Hellenic Republic (Greece), possibly Rossiya, the Russian Orthodox Church, or The Eastern (Greek) Orthodox Church. If the English and French were not dumbasses, Imperial Russia would have finished off the Ottoman dogs in the 17th or 18th Century, but leave it to those French Toads and English Twits to screw everything up. Wait to go England and France, if it wasn't for your selfish ends, you could have saved many Christians! How arbitrary is this, when the Greeks go for Independence, the English and the British assholes decide to help Russia achieve her ultimate goal of a free Christian eastern europe.

urbanThe proper name of the city located on the Bosporus Strait is Constantinople. The only rightful owners of Constantinople are Christians.

urbanA city which is currently under the custody of Turkey (since it has been besieged by the Ottomans in the 1400's) but in fact belongs to Greece (Hellenic Republic). Constaninople is erroneously called "Istanbul" by the Turks (at least, that's how they call it). It is the capital of the Eastern Orthodox Religion, since centuries ago. Constantinople will soon be captured by Russia, and this will happen because of the big disputes between Europe and Turkey (thus Turkey will no more have control of it) and then it will once again be given to its original owner (the Hellenic Republic, or Greece).

urbanAfter Constantinople is freed from the dirty dogs (turks) 1/3 of Turks will be converted to Christianity 1/3 will die in the big slaughter which is coming soon 1/3 will flee to Asia

urbanWas Greek, is Greek, and will always be Greek. Constantinople is the eternal Capital of Greece.
