Shocking hypocrisy!

“We can never think of a second state under this [Turkish] flag. We can never permit this kind of separatism and discrimination ... What is your problem with this flag? Its color represents the blood of our ancestors and its crescent ... It represents our independence ... I have never talked about a ‘single language’ but a single official language ... There is no longer a Kurdish question in this country. There are issues of my Kurdish brothers. There is an exploitation of my Kurdish brothers but they will not be deceived,” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said at a ceremony held to introduce his party’s parliamentary candidates to the press.

The above from the leader of the country which insisted on Turkish being an official language of the Republic of Cyprus, for its then 18% Turkish speaking minority, from day one. She went on to declare war on Cyprus ostensibly to protect the minority although none of its members had been hurt, cause the death of 7.000 (!) Cypriots or 1.5% of the population, destruct, divide, chase away a third of the population from their homes, colonize and create an ethnically "clean statelet" in northern Cyprus with its "own flag" Turkey alone in the world recognizes, a pseudo-statelet she occupies with 45.000 troops, purssuing polices of separation, discrimination and colonization against the Geneva convention since her UN/ECHR condemned actions in 1974.

The hypocrisy of the ethnic Turks is simply shocking!

Kurds must employ Turkey's Cyprus logic in their plight for political, community, cultural and civic rights in Turkey. It is by far their best political weapon.

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.
