Reader comment on item: Turkey in Cyprus vs. Israel in Gaza
in response to reader comment: Greek Cyprus

Submitted by Kaan (Germany), Jul 26, 2010 at 08:52

Dear Sir,

you are right, Turkish originated people finally came down from Asia to nowadays Turkey around 700 years ago, a couple of hundreds years laer to Cyprus, so, you could define it as invasion. The question is, how many years are you going back in history to see people as legitimized inhabitants. 400 years? As you live in the US, I am sure, you have a clear answer to such a question.

It is a human shame, that two ethnic groups are not able to live together on such an island. Finally, both groups are responsible for the current situation and still can not overcome the wall. Children can handle many situations much better!
