Cyprus: The Beginnings of a Racial Bizonal – Bicommunal Federation - DEFEND DEMOCRACY PRESS

Stephanos Constantinides

The solution negotiated by the Greek side for the Cyprus issue gradually shifted to a two-state confederation and an institutional framework that would confirm Ankara’s sovereignty over the entire island and preserve the interests of the US and NATO in the region.

This new state structure will emerge with the dissolution of the Republic of Cyprus and will be structured on the basis of racial criteria.

This means that there will be an ethnic vote and citizens will not vote with single electoral lists but with lists based on their ethnic origins and religion.

Akinci, Nami, Ozersay: the local Turkdom on the march again

In Crawshaw's book "Cyprus Revolt: The Origins, Development and Aftermath of an International Dispute" you will find the flyer / leaflet Turks were circulating in Cyprus in the 1950s to incite the local minority Muslim population. A similar propaganda is in the works today. By Kemalists then, by Islamists today. The beast is hungry yet again. Partition wasn't enough. And whatever the new demand will be, it won't be enough. A new generation will demand whatever may be left to take.

Here it is:

"Oh Turkish Youth! The day is near when you will be called upon to sacrifice your life and blood in the PARTITION/TAXIM struggle - the struggle for freedom. You are a brave Turk. You are faithful to your country and nation and are entrusted with the task of demonstrating Turkish might. Be ready to break the chains of slavery with your determination and willpower and with your love of freedom. All Turkdom, right and justice and God are with you. PARTITION OR DEATH."

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.
