OLYMPICS AND NATIONALISM/greek embarassment

A few days ago, I posted 10 reasons for which I like Turks, among them that their diaspora nationalistic is. For me nationalism is the best thing in the world. From my student times in Franfurt I have known a lot of Turks of the second generation and they were Turks to the bone, many of them were "bozkurt". Nowadays turkish youth in germany and in europe is not assimilated but keeps the roots and traditions of nation and faith.
on the other hand, I was expecting the great "patriots" of ours with the big mouths to say smthing about the case of olympic medal winner in canoe-kajak Sideris Tassiadis.Nope not a thing! nit convenient! in plain greek "to kanane gargara!!"
this cute 22 year old boy was born by greek parents, that grew up in evros prefecture(at the border to Turkey)in Augburg, Bavaria. His family came back to greece in the 90's for 5 years, so he went to school from age 5-10. Then his parents disilusioned about the financial situation in Greece went back to germany, to Augsburg. Germany's economy and especially bavaria's is booming ever since.
so this kid wins a golden medal at european championships and now a medal in the olympics. And the grrek reporters mere by looking his name say" ooh! another grrek medal!
and they interview him but to their surprise he says" Greece gave a sh!t about me all these years. I am a german now, the Germans have helped me and after the olympics I become a police officer hier in Bavaria"
Intervied by Giannis Ntaskas in Alpha radio 989 on Aug 3rd (in the stations archive u can find the interview like I did) he stated answering a question that he would fight with germany "i have to if they tell me" even if it were against greece!!! he told it with an Irony from what I understood and with bitterness, but I had the impression he meant that too.
no greek media covered this story( cause it's way too embarassing) and even some blogs only referred to it but" burried"it under other news.
I couldn't imagine there would be a single Turk doing the same in germany or anywhere else. I know that many of them volunteer for military service in Turkey even if they don't have to(double citizenship)

I don't watch much tv so I don't know but you are wrong about the blogs. It was a head story in the biggest greek sports sites.

You should also read this one if you want to understand what is hidden behind Tasiadis sayings:

Greek media covered it, Centurk. I read about it, but it is not worth posting.

The Turkish diaspora you admire they have a word for them: traitors, fifth columnists. According to these same ultra-nationalist diaspora Turks and their views of minorities in Turkey, the Europeans would be very justified if they commence military operations against them tomorrow. I agree with that solution.

Why is vaseline in my sig? Because Turks don't want to read what I post. Hopefully the lube makes it easier for those criminal scum who are such great cry-babies to swallow.

greek media didn't cover his last statement, which I concider most embarassing. That in case of a war between the two countries he would fight on the german's side. I don't think i've heard something like this in the past 25 years and in the light of our relationship with germany I find it at least peculiar that such a statement went almost unnoticed...

Felix, obviously the guy is a bitter moron. Why would the Greek media spend more time on him after they found out that?
