    Country of Origin

    I'm writing a paper for one of my courses analyzing the Turkish Flotilla thread, focusing on member nationality, seniority, perception of the flotilla and of Israel's actions, reactions, etc... It would really help me if someone from the staff would perhaps be able to tell me how many different countries are represented by our members, active or otherwise

    Thankx for the help!

    Bit of a hairy question. Im born and raised Aussie but my background is Greek Cypriot.

    Thats technically 3 baskets i fall into. Im sure a lot of members, especially from the ABCA countries would have much the same issue.

    OOE for example, Canadian? Chinese? both?

    OOE,

    I know you consider yourself Canadian, i was merely using myself and yourself as an example. Is BR really asking for Ethnicity or Nationality?

    Where they live. The little flag by your avatar. Chakos, yours says Aussie, so as far as I'm concerned, you're an Aussie.

    Nationality, since "Chinese" is not an ethnic group.
    The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.
