Was the author around when Cypriot Turks were being denied all rights and treated like third class citizens killed abused hundreds butchered we all forget 1963 64 the Greeks deny any wrong doing well I'm sorry if anyone is to blame for Turkish occupation it's the massive Greek aggression in the 60s enosis as they called it to link Cyprus with mainland Greece
