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

Submitted by e. nondas (United States), Jul 22, 2010 at 22:53

We do not believe It is fair to compare Gaza and Israel Versus Cyprus and Turkey's invasion and thirty six years of Turkey's barbaric occupation of Cyprus. In case of Israel is fight for survival ,it is surrounded by many nations with millions of Arabs, many are enemies. In Cyprus case ,it is its geopolitical and strategic position which is the root which caused most of its problems, and the 1959 unfair, dysfunctional 1959 British imposed Zurich and London "Agreements" never been voted by a referendum, amended or ratified by the Cypriot people. Those British "agreements" gave 40% rights to the 18% Turkish Cypriots infringing on the rights of the 82% of the Greek Cypriot majority. Also Turkey's expansionist designs over Cyprus divided Cyprus in 1974 when it took advantage of the opportunity of the Treacherous Greek Junta coup July 15 1974 against Makarios and Turkey invaded Cyprus on July 20 ,with the Ottoman empire dream to annex Cyprus in the long term, thanks to the silent aproval of theEU and the West.

Bravo to Turkey which is willing to join the EU unpunished ,regardless to too many violations against the Greek Cypriot basic Human rights incorporated in the protocol which Turkey signed but fails to comply with it .For thirty six years Turkey has violated all UN ,security council and EU resolutions issued for Cyprus.,and Turkey is in defiance of the UN charter and complete defiance of international law. Turkey does not recognize the EU Republic of Cyprus, which became an EU member state since 2004 .Turkey blames the Greek Cypriots for rejecting in 2004 ,the Dysfunctional ,racist , undemocratic Koffi Annan plan which was indeed a bad plan worse than the infamous 1959 Zurich and London British imposed agreements. The rejected 2004 Koffi Annan's plan ,was rejected by 76% of the Greek Cypriots ,simply because it was written by foreigners, Just to serve the foreign interests and not the interests of the Cypriot people Turkish ,and Greek.If Turkey likes so much the dysfunctional and troublesome plan, why does it give a similar Koffi Annan's plan to the 20 million Kurdish minority in Turkey to solve their problem . Turkey must stop acting stupid ,and it has to accept its responsibilities and accountability as an EU canditate , for the human rights violations against the EU Greek Cypriot citizens ,and Turkey committed war crimes against Humanity in Cyprus,and committed the ethnic cleansing of 200,000 Greek Cypriots from their ancestral homes and properties ,and enslaved 37% of EU Cyprus soil for the last thirty six years. Turkey desecrated more than 550 Christian Churches and destroyed the Greek Cypriot Cultural and religious heritage. Is this an amicable way of settling a problem in the EU family of civilized nations, which Turkey wants to join with?

Sincerely E. Nondas
