Some may regard Turks as normal individuals, but some may see them as potential terrorists. The 911 attack has had a huge impact American and Canadian views on Middle Easterners.

I dunno, but I have always thought that Turks are like the Canadian French. When they speak English, their accent is just like the Canadian French people. Also, their appearance is no different from Canadians; there are dark ones and light ones. But not like Indians, Arabs, etc. More like European...

Turks have never been colonized or governed by any other country! They were always the governors!!!

The Turks were governed for a while by the Caliphate in Baghdad. That didn´t last too long though.

Europeans are just as proud that (most of them) haven´t been ruled by Turks... the Ottoman empire was damn solid for several centuries. There´s been a few times in history their crescent almost flew over Venice.

The ones who were governed by the caliphate were not Turkey´s Turks!! They were Turkmens, still Turkic people though. But still they were also in government positions of the country.

Some European countries shape all their history based on the Turks. Some are proud that they were not governed by the Turks. But the Turks governed most of Europe, Asia and Africa for like 6 hundred years.

They had a damn good empire though. At their time there was peace everywhere including the middle east.

In fact, they also protected Jews from Spain, etc.

Coz at that time, Turkey´s Turks had not even come to the west, so they can´t have been governed by the caliphate.

But they did govern the caliphate for like 4 or 5 hundred years.
