Turkic ethnic group
(Redirected from Turk)

Turkish people or Turks (Turkish: Türkler) are the largest Turkic people who speak various dialects of the Turkish language and form a majority in Turkey and Northern Cyprus. Most Turks are Muslims. There is also a large Turkish diaspora in the Middle East and Europe due to the past extent of the Ottoman Empire and current immigration of Turks to these regions.

Quotes about Turks

  • All Turkes do detest the colour of blacke, and thinke those that weare it, shall never enter into Paradise: But the colour of greatest request among them is greene; wherewith if any Christian be apparrelled, he shall be sure of Bastinadoes, and other punishments: Neither may he use the name of their Prophet Mahomet in his mouth, (under the paine of a cruell censure to be inflicted upon him) whom they so much adore, and honour.
