Cyprus EEZ as of April 2013

Cyprus is reportedly debating granting the rights to block 8 to Israeli interests in exchange for Israel's support for the construction of an LNG plant in Vassiliko. In the mean time, the Turkish crimes in illegally occupied and illegally colonized northern Cyprus continue unabated, with its legal population still waiting after almost 40 years for its return to their homes and properties.
A shame for the western world really, and especially for Europe, as it struggles to appease an extremely difficult neighbor for whom an understanding of the fundamentals of democracy is severely lacking. "Turkey" not only completely lacks any legal basis for her presence, but given her own dismal record of suppressing, not just the rights, but the very identity of her 22+% Kurdish population over the last 90 years, she lacks any ethical justification in meddling in Cypriot affairs. Those who understand know that this utterly pathetic situation in occupied northern Cyprus, where a millennia old, recorded, non-stop, historically and culturally rich Greek Christian presence risks being lost, can change only if the United Kingdom alters its Pontius Pilate's stance and/or the EU decides to acknowledge that the crime is so horrid that any possible political or financial risk is justified. For the sake of safeguarding Europe's own values and dignity.

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.
