A Dangerous Precedent

What's the face of your minority dictating the terms of your surrender?
Bizonality (not merely stupid, a criminal concept for Cyprus) raises the ante on every state with large difficult/unwilling-to-assimilate minority communities. Any form of legalized division on Cyprus would make a disaster precedent under international law. It's up to us not to approve such nonsense. Whatever the cost. And I'm afraid it may include human lives too, as Turks realize that the end game is nigh and they have no option but to play what has been their only card all along: military force.

Bizonality in a nutshell: Imagine a section of your town or country carved up, its Christians thrown out, forced to sell their properties, your country's Muslims (or ethnic minority) invited in, and the two zones, the smaller one de-jure for Muslims and the other for kafirs, to be equally represented in political structures, each with effective veto powers. If you can imagine it then you understand the solution the United Nations is promoting for Cyprus. It will never be approved. Just as you would never approve it. None of you.

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.
