A Kurd asks "What is stopping you Mr. Erdogan?"

Baran , 22 August 2011 , 15:09 [A Kurdish post on Today's Zaman] "All that Mr Erdogan needs to do to end the bloodshed between Kurds and Turks is to address all citizens of Turkey and say the Kurdish citizens of Turkey are entitled to the same rights, freedoms and status Turkey so aggressively advocates for a relatively handful Turks who are citizens of another independent country,that is, Cyprus! ...... That would be morally the right thing to do as well. So, what or who is stopping him? Does he or his cronies enjoy seeing flag-draped coffins? Do his cronies financially, economically benefit from the senseless spilling of young Turkish and Kurdish men"

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.
