They are angry!

Mehmet Ali Birand 27/10/2011 "However many members the state of the Turkish Republic puts in jail, KCK fills the blanks immediately. There are two states in the region. One is the BDP-KCK formation; the other is the state of the Republic of Turkey. It is openly felt that there is a subtle race, a competition between these two powers. ...
... The state of the Republic of Turkey is very powerful. It is a structure that is extremely difficult to overcome with its police, army, money and giant means. But the BDP-KCK organization has stolen the hearts of the public; it is what the public believes in. When compared to the Turkish state, of course they are weaker, but their voices are loud. Especially when they are not informed properly by the state, when they are excluded, then they have the atmosphere they wish for. Moreover, they are angry."

Why not try Turkey's ideas in Cyprus to address an 87-year problem? 1960? 1974? 2011? Any would do in my humble opinion Mr Birand. I say there is Turkish and tCypriot hypocrisy involved. What do you say?

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.
