Our dear Kaan whose ancestors the Greeks and the Armenian and the Syrians were brutalized by the invading barbarians the Turks and who detached him from the languages of his ancestors and to add isult to injury he is a follower of the religion of the Arabs

The Turks are the most insecure people on earth

>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.

Yes it was an invasion and imperialism and colonialism and they are more than welcome to go back to Central Asia and occupied Constantinople will be free again

> The question is, how many years are you going back in history to see people as legitimized inhabitants. 400 years?

Whatever it takes

>As you live in the US, I am sure, you have a clear answer to such a question.

What deos this have to do with Cyprus? Oh is this the topos of al-hunuud al-humr? Oh spare us this one

Oh the Arabic? may be you can ask your Mullah to tell you what it means

But wait; Your masters the turks invaded and occupied let us say Egypt for a very long time do Turks also have a claim to Egypt? and how about the Truks that still live in Egypt and they exist what do you plan to do about them? Let me help you; They adopt Egyptian Arabic as their language and they become Egyptian albeit of Turkish origin

Well the same can heppen in Cyprus

But you know what? Even after 600-700 years of Turkish imperialism the Turks are still insecure about who they really are and why is that our dear Kaan? Any guesses?

>It is a human shame, that two ethnic groups are not able to live together on such an island.

Not really! The chances are you are, our dear Kaan, of Greek ancestry (or Armenian or Syrian) and you ain't of Turk ancestry (gasp!) stop being a victim of the truks and be who you really are

>Finally, both groups are responsible for the current situation and still can not overcome the wall. Children can handle many situations much better!

Hello: Cyprus is a Greek island like or not
