Our dear servet is digging a deeper hole for himself

Republic of Turkey is the natural continuation of the Ottoman Empire

And to paraphrase what you wrote: And the Ottoman Empire in the unnatural continuation of the Byzanitne Empire

just like France was still France after the French Revolution.

What revolution? The barbarian Turks came from centeral Asia or did you forget?

In France king was replaced by the parliament but it is still the same country. In Turkey we abolished the Sultan and setup a republican regime but it is still the same country.

He is comparing France a real democracy with Turkey! Sobhanallah

So it was "we the turks" who owned cyrus since 1570

No you did not it was owned by the Greeks from time immemorial and this is what even your Arab historians tell us

Hint: who "owned" Cyprus before 1570CE it ain't the barbarian Turkish occupiers and imperislists

and it was leased to Britain in 1878 and was a de jure Ottoman-Turkish sovereign territory

Then send that money to the real onwers of Cyprus the Greeks

until 1915 when the Britsh forces formally annexed the island

Well the Brits took it away from you so what is your problem?

Like a typical Turk you are your worst enemy
