Reader comment on item: Turkey in Cyprus vs. Israel in Gaza

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Jul 20, 2010 at 07:30

An island country divided;Cyprus has always been a popular holiday destination for Europeans, especially the British. It is amazing that so many tourists flock to the beaches of Larnaca, while in the North the "open air jail" continues to thrive. The situations in both Cyprus and Israel are as different as night is from day. Any assumed similarities between Turkey in Cyprus and Israel in Gaza must be discarded as pure rubbish. Israel will continued to be falsely vilified, while Turkey is the real culprit.
