Not sure if it adds anything to the discussion but you could encounter an identical situation in Greece with Istanbul. I'm certainly not defending it but it seems to be one of the countless similarities between nationalisms.

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.
