in response to reader comment: Even Mu3awiyya tells us that Cyprus was a Greek island so was he a liar?

- there is no "real owner" of any land.

- a STATE by its very definition is not about who lives there but who RULES there

- who lives there might only be called inhabitant.

and

how come arabs are our masters, we have never been ruled or occupied by any arab force in the past?

your biased thinking is obvious

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

other invaders are mentioned without adjectives but when it comes to arabs the "imperialist" and when it comes to turks "barbarian" adjectives are used.

you are not really worth spending time replying. you have a certain glass that you look at the world through and individuals like you spreading hatred and provocating people against others are the primary source of racism and segregation and violence against others. in this context i think you are equally disgusting with an isis terrorist beheading their opponents.

somehow for some reason you hate turks arabs and muslims and you spend all your time and energy for spreading - propagating this hatred of yours to other people with your shallow intellectual level.

i looked for the meaning of the word dhimmi and now i understand why all this fury and rage. seems like you had some though times in Egypt.
