Would you ignore me, mock me or fight me?

If someone could decode the Cypriot soul in 2004's 76% rejection of the monstrous Annan plan, thus uniting all of us, then we would all find the comfort zone to acknowledge that all Cypriot leaders have done their very best, and yes often not good enough, at the service of an extremely demanding and intelligent people that has been dealt a truly crappy hand by history! 

Some Cypriot politician recently reminded us of Gandhi's quote “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” If only this politician would realize that Gandhi's quote was a call to action for those in the right place, at the right time, uniquely destined to fulfill a role far larger than their current noble one.

Who is best positioned to translate the will of Cypriots into a solution that respects the history and traditions of the land, and in doing so convince the Cypriot people of the necessity to UNITE this once for the sake of future generations & out of respect and gratitude to generations past? 

Who is best positioned to be the voice of the Cypriot soul?

I am willing to bet there are hundreds of thousands of Cypriots willing to buy into a Cypriot vision of common sense, a Cypriot sense of unity, away from narrow party & technocratic calculations, away from foreign thinking in approaching a Cypriot conundrum created by foreigners in the first place. 

Who is a politician with integrity, expertise, competence and the ability to unite and inspire all Cypriots to rally behind a single candidacy in the 2013 elections? 
Who is widely accepted and possesses the guts to chart a new course and the confidence to explain such decision to friends and foes alike.

If I told you I have such person in mind would you ignore me, mock me or fight me?

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.
