  • Continuous International Isolation The Turkish Cypriot Side
    2,173 words
    The United Nations Mediation in Cyprus: 1975-1990 The UN mediation in Cyprus during this period is characterised by the complete absence of a clear idea of what the post-1974 political settlement should be. In other words, the UN did not manage to address questions like: should the Zurich-London Agreements be upheld? Did those agreements provide a viable solution to the Cyprus problem at the first place? If not, how could a new political settlement be justified and presented to the affected part...

    Southern Cyprus as Terrorist State The most insidious and nefarious partner of terrorism against Turkey is Southern Cyprus. I will not deal in this work with the EOKA murders directed at the British and the Turkish Cypriots perpetrated by the "Southern Cypriots" striving for the union of the island with Greece, how the Southern Cypriots accommodated the Armenian ASALA organization, and got them to kill the Turkish diplomats. Here I will only disclose the relations of the "Southern Cypriot" admin...
  • Turkish Cypriots And Greek Cypriots

    Cyprus, an island in the Eastern Mediterranean, at the cross-roads of three continents - Europe, Asia and Africa - has one of the oldest histories of the world, dating back 9000 years.

    Billy Tourtoulis Beth Hadrell Eng. 120 Sec. 003 The two political sides of the Cyprus Problem. Since 1974, when Turkey invaded the island of Cyprus thus establishing a fake "Turkish Nation" as it is called by the Turkish press, the two countries, Turkey and Greece have been at odds with each other. Turkey claims part of the island of Cyprus as well as part of Greece; Greece is always at the U.N. seeking justice. The problem in Cyprus has been one of the major concerns for the United Nation for t...
  • Year Since The Turkish Cypriots
    3,772 words
    A TIME TO REMEMBER Experience cautions us that irreparable damage could be done by those who somehow seem to regard Cyprus as a dazzling intellectual challenge and fail to put human faces behind the issues. Of one thing we can be sure: They will not be around when their ill-conceived paper glory is blown away in the storm that is bound to follow. It has been 35 years since the stationing on the island of a UN peace-keeping force that could prevent neither a secret invasion by Greece nor the cont...

    The Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus is the homeland of two distinct peoples: the Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots. Their relationship is not one of a majority and minority, but one of equal partnership. The Turkish Cypriots speak Turkish, are Muslims and share the culture of their motherland, Turkey. The Greek Cypriots, on the other hand, speak Greek, are Orthodox Christians and profess the culture of their motherland Greece. After more than 300 years of Turkish rule, the island came u...

In the wake of the assault on America, the Greeks have been living up to that time-honoured practice with outbursts of anti-Americanism by protestors who chant that Uncle Sam had it coming. Last week, around 3...
  • Common Home Of The Greek Cypriot Community
    755 words
    What is the Cyprus question Let us hear the answer from the Greek Cypriot and Greek leaders themselves: "I have struggled for the union of Cyprus with Greece, and Enosis will always be my deep national aspiration as it is the aspiration of all Greek Cypriots. My national creed has never changed and my career as a national leader has shown no inconsistency or contradiction. I have accepted independence instead of Enosis because certain external conditions and factors have not allowed a free choic...
