Antifon on the Economist!

I can't give you an explanation why my blogging on Cyprus and Turkey started on September 11th 2009 on The Economist website but I guess that date left a profound mark on all of us.

The link to my comments on The Economist site can be seen by clicking on this sentence. Through my comments you can access the relevant articles on which I have commented, the vast majority referring to either Turkey, Cyprus or both. Through my comments you can follow the associated discussions, something I urge you to do since they offer a plethora of views from the Cypriot, Turkish, Kurdish and third party perspectives.

These Economist discussions, along with ones on the Cyprus Mail, my involvement in which came much later, prompted me to create my blog. It's basic premise is: Turkeyish Hypocrisy! (the specific spelling I have adopted as of recent, as my way to differentiate from the tCypriots).

It is my belief that all Cypriots are different animals than their respective mainland ethnic ones. As one eloquently put it recently on the Cyprus Mail, we even both murmur our mother tongues in a surprisingly similar manner!

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
