Ne Mutlu Kürdüm Diyene!

"Some Turks are damn racists! Why are you trying to wipe out a whole ethnic group in your misguided belief in the ethnic supremacy of the Turks. It wasn't your Turkishness that gave you the chance to rule the Islamic world but Islam, so if you want to solve the Kurdish problem, seek that solution in Islam otherwise 'ne mutlu Kurdum diyene' will take over some Kurds. [Note: Paraphrasing 'Ne Mutlu Türküm Diyene' or "How happy is the one who says 'I am Turk'", also written on the occupied Cyprus mountain, which is a guiding principle of the Kemalist education system of Turkey]" - newcomer [a Kurd] , 19 July 2011 , 19:43 on 'PKK's Bayık defends deadly attack, chides Öcalan's talks with state' 19 July 2011, TODAY'S ZAMAN

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.
