Poor Turkish-Cypriots...you get every possible help and right from the Government of the Republic of Cyprus, that at the same time you don't like, you want the turkish troops within your country and at the same time you claim working for a solution (?), for a peaceful (?) discussion and negotiation...
Amazing how people manage to leave aside the facts and start believing in partial "truths"! 100% inconsistency between words and actions...what can i say...i wish Cyprus politicians were as good to me as they are to you. I also wish we understand at some point that leaving together in a country means to respect same rules and democracy..we are people...we are not groups...
Anyway, good luck to all of us.

OMG it is true that you are utterly clueless.
If this is how the greeks treat history, how can anything past of greek origin be trusted as truth.

It is thought that a family of seven Turks who disappeared from the village may be buried there. Their house was found burnt, and grenades had been dropped through the roof. Shallow graves had apparently been hurriedly scooped by a bulldozer. The bodies appeared to have been piled in two or three deep. All had been shot.

One man had his arms still tied behind his legs in a crouching position and had been shot through the head. A stomach injury indicated that a grenade may have been thrown into his lap..."

(Extract from a report in Daily Telegraph 14 January 1964.)

THEY ARE TURK-HUNTING

"Discussions start in London; in Cyprus, the terror continues. Right now we are witnessing the exodus of the Turks from their villages. Thousands of people abandoning homes, lands, herds; Greek terrorism is relentless. This time, the rhetoric of the Hellenes and the busts of Plato do not suffice to cover up barbaric and ferocious behaviours. At four o'clock in the afternoon, curfew is imposed on the Turkish villages. Threats, shootings and attempts of arson start as soon as it becomes dark. After the massacre of Christmas that spared neither women, nor children, it is difficult to put up any resistance. British vehicles are shuttling back and forth between the villages and Turkish Cypriot "ghettos". In Nicosia, an office for the more than 5,000 refugees is operating. On the walls of its rooms hang images depicting Turkish renaissance: a woman draped in a flag, Kemal Atatu­rk at the head of his victorious troops; and the families of peasants are arriving who require lodgings and food."

(Extract from a report by Giorgio Bocca, Il Giorno, 14 January 1964.)

I'll take that as an admittion that you have conducted your own Genocide decades after the Armenian "genocide", which occurred in a time when life had much less meaning.Since then the most " civilized " cultures have conducted their own, Including the US & UK ,Spain France & Germany.
Only a complete and Utter C**T like you would overlook the massacre of 6 million + Jews.

ALL THE PERFUMES OF CYPRUS SHALL NEVER CLEANSE THOSE HANDS

"There are two kinds of assassin. The first, kills alone. His hands are red, therefore he is easily recognized. "Beast" they call him and he is led, somewhat rudely, to the guillotine or to forced labour. The second, remains aloof and watches people assassinate each other. He touches nothing, his hands are clean. Let one indignant witness speak of halting the carnage and white hands will look at him and say, severely, "Look after your own affairs". And he will put out his foot to trip him up. Only this second kind of assassination is worthy of consideration as a fine art.

Monsignor Makarios is a great artist. Each time that I see him on TV or in a newspaper, I admire his fine hands made for benediction and for prayer, his handsome looks sheltered by tabernacle-like eyelids barely allow the penetration of suave insensibility. Monsignor Makarios belongs more to the "Heavens" than to the earth, that is clearly visible. That is why he permits the Greeks to carry on the butchery in Cyprus. NATO wants to stop the bloodshed? "Halt. I am against it. In the holy name of our independence". The United Nations, then. "I agree, but be patient. We have time". Is not one master in his own home? And it is after all, a few corpses gained.

Mark you, Monsignor Makarios is Greek and Christian. The Greeks are fighting the Turks, 10 against one. In simple arithmetic, this must add up to nine corpses of infidels—men, women, children, it matters little—for one chosen of the good cause. Hence, the holy gaiety, at times irrepressible, of Monsignor. Last Saturday he was seen receiving journalists and laughing his head off during a whole minute. That day the corpses of the massacred Turks were piled up at the other edge of the Island.

Journalists know well the customs. They saluted Monsignor Makarios according to orthodoxy as "Your Beatitude". His Beatitude, sanctimoniously, was beaming. Here is a man who attains Paradise in all sweetness. He will arrive with his hands pure. And yet all the perfumes of Cyprus... yes, yes, all the perfumes of Cyprus shall never clean those hands".

(Extract (translation) from Le Canard Enchaine, Paris, 19 February 1964.)

(Report of the UN Secretary-General, S/6569, 29 July 1965)

However, the "doctrine of necessity" cannot in law be relied upon to justify "the laws" of a "government" which had itself dismantled the Constitution, violated international agreements, and wrecked the bi-communal constitution, as a result of which an exclusively Greek Cypriot administration came into being. In 1964, in order to stop the violence, the UN Security Council was under pressure to introduce a UN force. To do so it treated the Greek Cypriot Government as if it was the constitutional government of Cyprus. This was a tragic error. Other states followed the UN in recognizing this illegitimate and illegal government. The human and political rights of the Turkish Cypriots, recognized in the 1960 treaties, have been ignored by the international community and must be restored if justice is to be done. International treatment of the Greek Cypriot administration as the legitimate Government of Cyprus for 40 years in complete disregard of facts and the rule of law is the only reason why a settlement has eluded Cyprus.

"Illegitimate & illegal government."

& they were not talking about the North.

That is your standard answer to reflect responsibility.
Turkey has been planning an invasion for a long long long time....
Rhe stupid and criminal junta gave them the excuse.
It was all a plan......the only people that did not know anything of these plan were the Cypriots.
I believe GC are to take some responsibility....as well as the TC....The majority of the responsibility lies with Turkey and Greece.

Yes, heavily armed Turkish Cypriots, with the help of the Turkish military and British intelligence were being exterminated.

You people had more guns and the most advatangeous parts of the island and murdered and terrorised Cyprus, but you were being exterminated.

You killed many. This old story does not cut it any more.

You Muslims in Cyprus are a minority there. Your a visitor there.

You wanted territory in Cyprus so you started your propaganda game slandering Cyprus and Greece left and right to cover up your dastardly actions of ethnic cleasing the Greek cypriots and taking their homes.

When your in a foreign country you respect the country your in.

Britain didn't have any right to draw up the constitution of Cyprus. It is illegal and a void document.

There will be war in Cyprus. Remember what I say -------

to give justice to the Hellenic Cypriots.
