His claim of all of those not being European are stupid but the point about Greece really stuns me. Greece is the cradle of western civilization for Christ's sake…

there are nineteenth century editions of Encylopedia Britannia and they were quite hostile towards Greeks.  Ancient Greece being one thing, but E.B. essentially said the modern Greeks were Hellenized Albanians and Turks.

Funny enough, most Anglos I've talked to seem to dislike the Greeks the most out of all Europeans.
