Mustafa Akinci is NOT a Hypocrite!

Mustafa Akinci, the leader of the Turkish Cypriot minority in Cyprus, strongly advocates:

  • the political equality of Turks and Kurds
  • Turk-Kurd rotational presidency in "Turkey"'s (RoT) new charter
  • exclusive Kurdish education for RoT's Kurds
  • external guarantees for RoT's long-persecuted Kurds
  • Kurdish veto rights in RoT
  • that Kurds, unlike Turkish Cypriots, have a legitimate claim to contiguous land
  • a new flag & charter for RoT that recognizes the reality of two peoples
  • PKK's armed struggle as a way to secure Kurds' rights in RoT
  • the UN presence in RoT to secure the safety of the Kurdish people next to Turks

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.
