    As Syrian as someone born there to Syrian parents

    Stop saying I am German when I clearly am not and don't identify as such.
    you would be better to just stop answering them, they certainly aren't and i get the feeling that you're getting quite wound up.

    Really? Because all my Syrian friends or shall I say Levantine friends see me as a blood Syrian.

    How am I appropriating Levantine culture? My own culture?!!! :confused:
    How are you not meine Frau

    Your Mother is German your Farther is Italian

    Just because your Grandparents were from Syria does not mean you are (it does mean they are though)

    as I said cultural appropriation at it's best naughty Frau.............

    British is just one of those words to identify with where I'm living,it says British on my passport but do I feel British? Nah. I feel more of a foreigner living in Britain,this won't be my final resting place anyway

    You'd be surprised if they do have them now. You also find such people voicing their opinions on social media. I hear a new story once a week on twitter
