Parallels between Israel/"Occupied Territories" vs Turkey/Northern Cyprus

Reader comment on item: Cyprus on the World Stage

Submitted by Sigmund Derman (United States), Jan 6, 2012 at 15:27

It's rather interesting that neither the Obama administration nor the UN is demanding that Turkey begin negotiations starting with the "pre-1974" boundaries or that it withdraw its troops from "occupied Cypriot territories." The Turkish settlers in areas that had never ever been Turkish are somehow OK. Jewish settlers in the traditional Jewish homeland are not OK.

Cyprus, and even Greece, might be good places to locate a few underground, hardened Israeli missile sites.
