Dear Mr Stoltenberg,

Your recent expression of solidarity with Turkey against “terrorism” is tantamount to unleashing attack dogs against Kurdish citizens with a decidedly racist subtext.

Zakharova: Current system of international guarantees on Cyprus "inefficient" | TASS

© Artem Geodakyan/TASS, archive
September 27, 2015 "Cyprus can address the UN Security Council with a proposal to consider the possibility of providing necessary guarantees", said Russian Foreign Ministry’s director of department of information

My note:  The so-called Cyprus 77-79 High Level Agreements were in fact an impressive Low for all concerned, gradually stooping even Lower ever since.

MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. Russia is not satisfied with current system of guarantees to Cyprus by Greece, Great Britain and Turkey, Russian Foreign Ministry’s director of department of information and press Maria Zakharova said in an interview with Cypriot newspaper "Politis" published on the official ministerial website on Sunday.

Zakharova said that it is up to Cypriots to decide whether this systems of guarantees should remain in place in case of settling the Cypriot problem. "However, the existing system of guarantees has proved its inefficiency," she noted. "Along with this, we do not rule out that Cyprus can address the UN Security Council with a proposal to consider the possibility of providing necessary guarantees from this respected international organization."

Apartheid and Bizonality

Apartheid, an Afrikaans word meaning "the state of being apart" (literally "apart-hood"), was a system of racial segregation in South Africa enforced through legislation by the National Party (NP), the governing party from 1948 to 1994.

Bizonality, a British word meaning "the state of being apart" (literally "two zones"), was a proposed system of ethnoreligious segregation in Cyprus which remained on the negotiating table for four decades aiming to safeguard the colonial privilege of the UK's military bases. It was initially rejected en masse by the Cypriot people in 2004 and eliminated in an even more spectacular way in 2016.

Cypriots chose instead to upgrade their 1960 constitution by removing all apartheid clauses which had masterfully been pre-planted in order to safeguard the preservation of the bases by creating and maintaining ethnic conflict between the Christian majority and the Muslim minority of Cyprus.

Kurdish Demands

Many would agree that it is one thing to stand for the respect of the human, political and cultural rights of people and communities, but it is totally another to allow a minority to dictate the fate of an entire nation. Since 1960, the majority Greek Cypriots have felt hostage to what they regard a sort of tyranny by an 18% minority.

What if the 20% Kurds of Turkey were to follow the Turkish Cypriot example and demand for themselves "rights" commensurate to those demanded by the Turks in Cyprus? What if Turkey's Kurds, as preconditions to lay down their arms and drop all talk of an independent Kurdistan, applied the same Turkish logic to Turkey's majority-minority dispute?

Kurds, after all, fought alongside the Turkish majority for independence, and they have a historic claim as the native people of the entire east of the country. Turkish Cypriots can make no such claims.

This might be a hypothetical list of the Kurds' demands:

What Is Known As A 'Cyprus Problem'?

A 'Cyprus problem' is that political problem of power sharing where majority and minority are pressured by the international community to meet halfway, say Hawaii, starting from Nagasaki and Managua respectively, by travelling only westward.

Turkey Needs to Practice in Turkey What It Preaches in Cyprus | Gatestone Institute

  • Turkey has claimed all along that it stays in Cyprus to "protect" the Turkish Cypriot minority. Since Turkey has "protected" them, almost half of Turkish Cypriots have abandoned Cyprus. They have been conveniently replaced by Anatolian Turks whose Islamic orientation and ethos could not be more foreign to Cyprus.
  • If Turks are so keen on "saving" minorities, why have they not applied the same principles in Turkey to save their own Kurds? 
  • With these circumstances in mind, it might be helpful to summarize the demands of the Turkish Cypriot minority and their patron, Turkey.

What a load of good old all American crap!

The “United States is committed to finding a just and lasting settlement reunifying Cyprus as a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation”, says Obama in his bimonthly report on Cyprus.

What a load of good old all American crap!

This is like saying a Just & Lasting Apartheid.

Turkish magazine raided, copies seized for mock Erdogan selfie | Reuters

Turkish police raided a magazine on Monday over a mocked-up "selfie" of a smiling President Tayyip Erdogan with the coffin of a soldier - an allusion to comments that families of soldiers killed by Kurdish rebels could be happy about their martyrdom.

The Light Bulb & the Turkish Mentality

The history of the light bulb spans the entire 19th century with Thomas Alva Edison credited for the invention with his 1879 version. "Turkey" 's mentality is old too, like AKP's logo suggests. But unlike the light bulb it has remained the same. True, AKP's Islamofascist version successfully replaced the Kemalofascist version. But raw fascism nevertheless dictates policies. The worst part of the story is that the state has been diligently raising generations that neither see nor are equipped to seek for the alternative. They are preoccupied with saving by force and intimidation their ethnic Turkish state at all costs. The cost to be paid in the end shall be unfathomable! And the end is nigh. 

Turks Followed Hitler's Czechoslovakia Example

Don't sign Europe's death warrant in Cyprus

Doctrine-driven migration. That's what Dr. Bill Warner calls it wondering whether the refugee (Migration)
crisis is the beginning of making Europe look just like Turkey which went from 100% being Christian to practically 100% Muslim in a mere few centuries. The western world is waking up because the problem is now inside their homes. In a sense we should be grateful. They will see our problem differently if we present it in the right light.

Our Muslims want zones. Guarantees for land/population majorities. On ethnically cleansed, majority Christian-owned land. In other words, segregation. That's what they did in the 60s, planned self-segregation. Just as the Quran commands, between Muslims and infidels (that's us). If we were to give them such legal precedent they'd take it & demand the same in Bermingham, Manchester, Marseille, Vienna, Blackburn, Oslo, and the list is endless.

Don't be stupid. Don't sign Europe's death warrant in Cyprus.

Asylum in Europe is not the solution for Islamic world | a comment on Facebook I liked

This is a comment on Facebook on the refugee crisis, by Shailendra Mishra, which I pass unedited. It hits the nail on the head of a great many gigantic truths ---- Social evolution is a very painful and many times a bloody process . Those living in Middle East countries see the current European society or American society and when they compare these peaceful societies with those of conflict zones of Iraq, Syria, Libya ,Yemen etc. they start asking why they are being killed while those in Europe or US are living in peace and prosperity ! And then they start searching excuses like US invasion as the root cause of their problem.

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.
