Even Mu3awiyya tells us that Cyprus was a Greek island so was he a liar?

in response to reader comment: Cyprus has never existed as a Greek State, never ever.

Our dear servet is a victim of the poor and uncritical Turkish education and by his very flawed logic Egypt has never existed as an Egyptian state for 2000 years after all from the year 333BCE until 1956 Egypt was ruled by Alexander the Great then the Ptoleyms then the Romans then the Byzantines followed by the imperialist Arabs then the barbarian Turks then the French the the British until 1956 so does this mean that by your very flawed logic Egypt "has never ever existed as an Egyptian state"

Hint: A state is not about the occupier it is about the real owners of the land

Do you see why you are the victim of uncritical education?

Now are you aware that your masters the Arabs called the Eastern Miditerranean Sea بحر الروم or the Sea of the Ruum (read this as the Greeks) how come you did not know that?

Oh you do not believe me? here from no other than wikipedia

http://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D8%AD%D8%B1_%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D8%A8%D9%8A%D8%B6_%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AA%D9%88%D8%B3%D8%B7

And this is what the author says

وسماه العرب قديما بحر الروم

Or and the early Arabs called it the sea of the Ruum (read this as the Greeks)

Now would a source like معاوية بن ابي سفيان or Mu3awiyya Ibn Abi Sufian be a good source to tell us more about فتوح جزيرة قبرص or the Arab invasion of the Greek island of Cyprus and about the real owners of the Islam the Greeks?

http://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%81%D8%AA%D8%AD_%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A5%D8%B3%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%85%D9%8A_%D9%84%D9%82%D8%A8%D8%B1%D8%B5

This is an ascription attributed to him about the invasion of the Greek island of Cyprus if you can read Arabic

http://www.startimes.com/f.aspx?t=33876199

Mu3awiyya tells us that the people of Cyprus were Ruum or Greeks and Christian

Would you like more sources?

Why are you in the habit of making a fool of yourself you tell me

So you tell me did history start in 1570CE?
