Caleb ,

You definitely are the most unlikely person to write about history.You yourself admit it is too much for you to wield. Yet you will never take this advice to heart , will you ?

You write therefore :

> Your reference: "...the first Hellenic settlements [on Cyprus] date back to c. 1700 BC in the Mycaenean period." Was the Mycenean (correct spelling) civilization "Hellenic" (that is, descended from King Hellen the eponymous ancestor of the Hellenes)? The answer is a definite "maybe".

What language is Linear B written in according to your Turkish sources ? Since Ventris (he was half Polish by the way) and Chadwick the answer to this question is no "maybe" at all even though the Turks have never heard of Ventris, Chadwick, Linear B or classical philology. What this Moslem horde cares about is destroying any vestiges of what exposes their disgusting lies presented as "history".

Now I doubt very much a Moslem can ever care about Greek mythology. And if you did and heard about Hesiod would , you know that Hellen was the first born son of Deukalion and Pyrra and had three more brothers Xanthos(=blonde) , Achaios and Ion.

> In any case they were replaced by the golden-haired Dorians from the north, generally regarded as the first Greeks.<

"Generally" ? I wonder who you mean exactly except your local imam ?

> But no need to go back to the mists of recorded history. There were Greek cities all along the Ionian coast and the southern shore of the Black Sea, before the conquests of the Persian Empire of Darius. Then that empire was conquered and destroyed by the Macedonian Alexander whom the Turks call **Iskander**. <

He was a two-horned Turk, wasn't he , as the Quran teaches us ?

> Recall also that the Arabs conquered Cyprus in 654 and from 688 ruled it in a joint condominium with the Byzantines for three hundred years.<

"Condominium" ? The Arab bandits were the scourge of the island and you call their raids and slave hunting "condominium"? Now setting apart the last Friday sermon in your local msoque , what is your source here ?

> Turkish claims **could** be based on Moslem presence since that date. <

If so, you Turks could claim Sicily, Spain, Southern France, Iran, India as Turkish territories too ? You Turkish jihadists should claim all the earth as it is what Allah has promised you and the Arab bandits before you , hasn't he ? Besides , this Turkish claim to all the earth could be corroborated with the staunch lies of the Turkish pseudo-history according to which Turks are founders and heirs of all civilization. It's what the so called Turkish "historical thesis" is all about, isn't it ? So you have the same right to claim North America as a Turkish vilayet since the Indians were essentially "Turks" as Cyprus is whose civilization which you have destroyed in the North is also "Turkish" , isn't it ?

> Archaeology is big on Cyprus. It was part of some of the world's oldest civilizations all of which left their mark.<

Most ancient sites in Northern Cyprus are destroyed, looted, devastated , its artefacts smuggled abroad and sold on the black market of antiquities. Turkish barbarity is very greedy . It destroys not just churches , but everything non-Islamic too.

> Thank goodness we in America have only to contend with the demands of the Sioux and the Iroquois!<

Why? The Turks (="we in America") claim no US territories as their own ? Incomprehensible ! They could easily claim it as their claim Chinese provinces referring to their Turkish historical anti-science according to which ALL civilization is Turkish in origin ? Well I have a presentment that one day things will change and Turkey's voice will be heard as loud and aggressive speaking of the oprpessed Turks in Europe and America as it is now when made-up claims to Cyprus are raised and defended with a policy of full scale war, genocide and occupation.
