Again your comments are based on assumptions. Your definiton "Many Turkish Cypriots" is tentative. If you try to define around 2.5% of Turkish Cypriot population as "Many" it is up to you. None of the Turkish Cypriots blaming Turkey for a betrayal. I think you want to hear what you ish to be true. I advise you to read and research what happened in Cyprus after April 1, 1955 when EOKA started her terrorist actions, bombings and killings.

When Arcbishop Makarios, Polycarpos Yorgadjis, Tassos Papadopulos, Glafkos Klerides, Vassos Lyssarides and other Greek heroes created Akritas Plan to exterminate Turkish Cypriots and put it into force on the night of December 21, 1963. What were the Commando Divison sent from Greece, totalling 20,000 doing in the island from 1963 to 1974 and still today in the island. Who sent the combat boats bombed severly the Kokkinos on August 1964. What was Colonel Georgios Grivas (Digenis) doing in the island. Why the missing persons are aƟmost five folds of Greek Cypriots during the period 1963-1974. I do not understand how can you blame Turkish Cypriots when 103 Turkish villages were burned and razed down to earth during the dark years of 1963 ro 1974.

Why don't you spare some time and have look to Ortega Report of UN drafted in 1964. If you do not have a copy I can post send you this report well over 1500 pages, exposing the pictures of the burned, looted and destroyed Turkish Cypriot villages. I advise you to read the real story written by the European journalists and historians and not the Greek falsifiers.
