2 February 2006 AP Euro DBQ During the Greek Revolution Turks viewed the Greeks as rash and lowly, poets saw them as only a shadow of their potential and needy, and the English and Christians both observed the Greeks to be put down with the ability to rise up. Though revolutions during the early to mid 1800’s were frowned upon, the Greek revolution was only successful because of foreign aid which made it acceptable in the eyes of Europe. It was a Christian cause that sparked support. However, the Muslim Turks were not going to hand over Greece. The Greeks were orthodox Christians, so they belonged to a religion that harshly contrasted with the Turkish Muslims. For this reason and others, Mustapha III, a Muslim Turkish sultan, would not have supported the Greek Revolution. He viewed the Christian Greeks as ignorant robbers and rebels. As a provincial governor and therefore a supporter of the Turkish cause, there is no way Vahid Pasha would have supported the Greeks. Vahid Pasha referred to the Greek Revolution as “the result of satanical causes.” Obviously, the contrasting religions played a part in the Turk’s dislike of the Greeks.
