It starts going awfully wrong right about here!

Do you by any chance have a minute and a half to become suspicious about why we are so different? Millions of children in Neoottomania recited their national oath (different than the anthem) every morning for the past 80 years, in an identical manner. In Occupistan as well. Abolished just in 2013.
Perhaps you will allow yourself to finally comprehend why our worlds do not overlap, they do not even meet, and that your humanism, deeply rooted in ancient Greek rationalism and the Judeo Christian spirituality and ethics, is foreign to them, in a way out of this world, and therefore a negotiation with them is always lose-win. Perhaps eventually you will come to terms with this fact and wisely adopt the only negotiating tactic that makes sense: not a single step back from deeply held principles of our European civilization. And make sure this is clearly understood by the leaders of the old as well as the new Europe, that beyond the Atlantic. For the reason that in Cyprus coexist ceaselessly and almost ideally, to paraphrase Glykatzi-Ahrweiler, the east that set together with the west that rose and today culminates, id est our European civilization. They have no right to sacrifice us, for if they did they would be sacrificing their very vibrant soul.

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.
