    Number 10 isnt a martyre. He didnt give up his life willingly as he was caught spying and was shot. He had every intention of making it back to his side with the information he gathered.

    Colonel Gaddafi? Yeah, he was a bit batty, but you have to respect him. He REFUSED to give in, even when Libya was being bombed, by NATO, and even when offered to surrender, he refused. He insulted the King of Saudi Arabia and humiliated him so much at The Arab League, he walked out, while Obama BOWS to him.. or Saddam Hussein. When those cowards were mocking him, he mocked them in return. I don`t think if I were being hung, I`d have the guts to do that.

          So you’re against good manners? I bet you fainted when you saw the pic of GW Bush kissing the Saudi king, didn’t you?
          I threw up a little when I saw it.

    Whoa Whoa Whoa, lets clear some stuff up on #7. Sultan Mahmud II ordered Gregory V hung… I have no idea were a “squad of Jews” comes in to play, but lets be clear this was an Ottoman-Greek issue. If you read any Primary documentation, you will see that Sultan Mahmud II forced unwilling Jews to be part of a “disposal” group respsonsible for removing dead bodies. That said, Gregory V was somewhat anti-semetic so there was some anomosity, but this article reads like Jews just dragged the man through the streets. Please read some primary documentation here: http://books.google.com/books?id=o3vIneSflMcC&pg=PA16&lpg=PA16&dq=Patriarch+Gregory+V+stance+on+jews&source=bl&ots=OgWAwTvyEZ&sig=FGrASoW-vyaQjd9nL7BZxUkpCT4&hl=en&sa=X&ei=LJ83UquYC-uvigLd6YGoAw&ved=0CFEQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=Patriarch%20Gregory%20V%20stance%20on%20jews&f=false

    In the future be more mindful of such blantent anti-semetic undertones. Forced corpse detail is different that gleeful desecration.

      LMAO @ you saying “In the future be more mindful of such blantent anti-semetic undertones”……..You got some nerve, that’s all I can say. I shouldn’t be discussing my personal life in here, but I am THAT anti-semetic that my woman is a Jew. So basically I am hating my woman and son you say? hahahaha. Boy you really entertained me this morning. Anyway I am not willing to continue this silly thing or debate on a personal level over your nonsense, just because it happens for you to be INSECURE about historical facts or because you obviously have the syndrome “Oh Jews NEVER committed any crime” but I will only tell you that I got my sources straight from here: http://books.google.gr/books?id=e2MCjLnRk8EC&printsec=frontcover&dq=the+history+of+the+Greek+revolution+thomas+gordon&source=gbs_summary_r&redir_esc=y#PRA2-PA187,M1

      “His body was then taken down and delivered to a squad of Jews who dragged it through the streets and finally threw it into the Bosphorus.”

      So if anyone is anti-semetic in this case is history itself.

      And before you make such wild accusations again on a personal level try to search if there’s any source that proves you BLATANTLY wrong first.

    The Souliot women is not a greek story,and Souli is not a greek village is an Albanian one and its written Suli… Because of the greeks deep nacionalism, they have changed the story apperently. I have heard this story since i was a little boy,because my grandmother was from a village near Sul.

    What about the Sikhs? They had amazingly brave martyrs. I suggest you search up The Chhotte Sahibzaday, the battle of Chankaur Di Garrhi and the 40 Mukte.
