Erdogan: Turkey’s aim is to destroy the Republic of Cyprus

So, according to Turk PM Erdogan, speaking today to Turkish Cypriot journalists ahead of his trip to the occupied areas to lead ‘celebrations’ to mark the 37th anniversary of Turkey's invasion of Cyprus, Turkey is no longer prepared to make ‘concessions’ on Cyprus, the Annan plan was as far as Turkey was prepared to go, and there will be no return of Morphou, Ammohostos or Karpasia – though Greeks, he said, would be allowed to go on pilgrimages to the remote peninsular, presumably to Apostolos Andreas. Erdogan added, alluding to Turkey’s demographic ambitions for Cyprus, that Turkish Cypriots, to boost the Turkish population on the island, needed to be more fecund and produce at least four children per family; otherwise, they should expect to see the dumping of more Anatolian gypsies in the occupied areas.

On arriving in Cyprus, where he was greeted by hundreds of Turks waving Turkish, pseudo-state and Palestinian flags, Erdogan said there was no such country as Cyprus – there was only the ‘Greek administration of the south’ and ‘the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’ – and that Turkey would freeze its relations with the EU in the six months next year during which Cyprus will hold the EU presidency. It would be a ‘disgrace’, Erdogan insisted, for Turkey to sit down, talk and carry out negotiations with a country whose existence it did not recognise. Erdogan went on that the only ‘solution’ Turkey was prepared to consider for Cyprus was a loose confederation of two separate states, i.e. the old ‘independence in the north-partnership with the south’ scenario.

The Turks have been careful not to be blamed for any collapse of the UN talks that have been taking place these last two years, paying lip service to their stated aim of reuniting Cyprus as a bizonal, bicommunal federation; so, it’s a little strange that Erdogan should so brazenly declare Turkey’s long-standing ‘two-state’ Cyprus policy and so openly show contempt for the UN process. Of course, the international community, including the UN, will pretend it never heard Erdogan’s utterances, even Christofias said he wanted to believe it was just another example of Erdogan’s tendency to speak off the cuff; but the truth is that this wasn’t just another Erdogan outburst, but the Turk PM stating Turkey’s real Cyprus policy, which is to destroy the Greek state entity on the island – the Republic of Cyprus – and in so doing rendering Cypriot Hellenism defenceless and allowing for the full Turkification of Cyprus.

Right well in that case we should stop the talks, ready the National Guard and go over the top. I've had enough of these people. They're impossible. The thing is, you're right, if we did back out of the talks the UN would pretend they didn't hear Erdogan's bollocks and there would be a push for recognition or whatever of the 'TRNC'.

This is disgusting. Brings to mind a recent Wilhelm Reich quote I came across:

"Only human beings who are forced to hide something catastrophic are capable of erring so consistently and punishing so relentlessly any attempt at clarifying such errors."

Or as Dostoevsky put it, talking about the Russo-Turkey war of 1877: 'The Turks 'murder prisoners and wounded after subjecting them to ghastly tortures such as cutting off noses and other organs. Specialists in the extermination of nursing infants have appeared among them, experts who seize the child by both legs and at once tear it in half, to the amusement and laughter of their comrades, the bashibazouks. This nation, steeped in lies and villainy, denies the atrocities it has committed. The Sultan's ministers assure us that there can be no slaughter of prisoners since "the Koran forbids it." It would seem impossible to treat this contemptible nation in a humane manner, but we are treating them humanely. I'll even venture to express my personal view that it would be best not to resort to reprisals against Turks found guilty of murdering prisoners and wounded. This would hardly diminish their savagery.'

While we're at it: "They were, upon the whole, from the black day when they first entered Europe, the one great anti-human specimen of humanity. Wherever they went a broad line of blood marked the track behind them, and, as far as their dominion reached, civilization disappeared from view. They represented everywhere government by force as opposed to government by law.—Yet a government by force can not be maintained without the aid of an intellectual element.— Hence there grew up, what has been rare in the history of the world, a kind of tolerance in the midst of cruelty, tyranny and rapine. Much of Christian life was contemptuously left alone and a race of Greeks was attracted to Constantinople which has all along made up, in some degree, the deficiencies of Turkish Islam in the element of mind!"---------Gladstone.

I vehemently disagree with your post, Anonymous 18:41 (22 July 2011).

Former P.M. of Great Britain (W.E. Gladstone) was correct about the ottomans/turks. Here's a snip from his pamphlet, "Bulgarian Horrors and the Question of the East":

"Let the Turks now carry away their abuses, in the only possible manner, namely, by carrying off themselves. Their Zaptiehs and their Mudirs, their Bimbashis and Yuzbashis, their Kaimakams and their Pashas, one and all, bag and baggage, shall, I hope, clear out from the province that they have desolated and profaned. This thorough riddance, this most blessed deliverance, is the only reparation we can make to those heaps and heaps of dead, the violated purity alike of matron and of maiden and of child; to the civilization which has been affronted and shamed; to the laws of God, or, if you like, of Allah; to the moral sense of mankind at large. There is not a criminal in a European jail, there is not a criminal in the South Sea Islands, whose indignation would not rise and over-boil at the recital of that which has been done, which has too late been examined, but which remains unavenged, which has left behind all the foul and all the fierce passions which produced it and which may again spring up in another murderous harvest from the soil soaked and reeking with blood and in the air tainted with every imaginable deed of crime and shame. That such things should be done once is a damning disgrace to the portion of our race which did them; that the door should be left open to their ever so barely possible repetition would spread that shame over the world!"

If you can still stand by your words:

"The ottomans were a great empire unless you lived under them same goes for every empire all empires rise and fall in to barbarism and corruption the British wiped out the entire population of Tazmania men women and children for NO REASON other that they were black the fact is Empire itself is flawed"

...then I guess you support and condone the social stagnation leading to the regression of all humanity, brutality of the janissaries, overall primitive behavior and all like minded grisly behavior. I follow the motto, "actions speak louder than words." The descendants of the half savage Parapamisadai only contributed tyranny and abject savagery to humankind. Ask the Assyrians, Sassanids, untold number of communities of the Levant, Hellenes, Bulgarians and many, many more. Their presence in our species makes me ashamed to call myself a human being. That's how DISGUSTING that "so called" empire reflects upon history! -HCG

The ottomans were a great empire, no doubt on that. An empire that gets away with brazen murder and genocide of the entire 3000 year old Armenian civilization in the space of a mere 6 years , removing every last vestige of christianity from their ancestral homes; an empire that eliminates thousand of years of Hellenism and the last segments of Greece in western anatolia carrying out acts of unprecedented genocide; and at the end of it emerges victorious and unbowed must by necessity have been a great empire of murderous assasins. Turkey is the only nation in recorded history to have successfully and effectively carried out a policy of extermination to its fullest conclusion. These were pure and simple actions of annhilation of races, there were no wars with the victims; just persecution and extermination. Now the turk threatens to dump Anatolian gypsies on the island of aphrodite ? The Greeks of cyprus will not stand for turkification, and neither they will be able to carry on a fight to a successful conclusion; the aftermath would be a deluge of Greek Cypriots into an already sardine packed breathless Greece. Leftists, communists and pseudo humanists are convinceed that ultimately they will be able to change and convert the universe to their universal clap trap theories of " humanity". Christofias gang, as well as Ppandreus masturbators are from these schools of prodotes and their dream is to see the turk " change into human" . These worms will not stand and fight, but turn tail in between their legs and run away.

Interesting to see London burning. We will see over the next few days the usual claptrap about youth unemployment, financial crisis, lack of public amenities and so on. Very few mainstream commentators will utter that perhaps multiculturalism is a failure.

Let's hope all Hellenes living in London are safe and sound and their property is not affected.

H. I just had to move my car to stop it from being smashed up or used as a barricade. I've got riot police with dogs at the end of my road. Looters running down my street, bundles of nicked clothes under their arms and stuffed up their jumpers. It's a joke really. Nothing to do with social deprivation, nothing to do with austerity, nothing to do with multiculturalism either. From what I could see from my window and balcony, it's just kids – black and white – out thieving.

Hermes said...

I read that the initial riots began in Afro-Caribean neighbourhoods.

Perhaps the international community should apply economic sanctions on the UK and some NATO airstrikes in selected areas of London. The situation is starting to look as bad as Egypt. Not as bad as Syria or Libya yet.

John Akritas said...

True, Tottenham – where it started – has a lot of blacks; but also Turks; though the riot up there seems to have been a black affair and I read a report about Hackney, in east London, saying Turk shopkeepers were fighting off black looters with baseball bats. The riot on my doorstep – literally – involved 70 percent blacks and 30 percent white English working class, 15, 16 year old kids, and my part of north London is not particularly black, though it has big Bangladeshi and Somali communities, though kids from these groups didn't seem to be involved. They were probably too busy planning to blow us all up in the name of allah.

Hermes said...

After the NATO airstrikes, there should be UN brokered peace talks mediated by a Greek Cypriot. Peacekeeping troops separate the communities and the so called victims are given autonomy and then statehood.

More seriously, what I never understand about these hoodlums is why they fight each other in their own neighbourhoods. Kensington and Knightsbridge are only a few tube stations away.

I believe the 2012 Olympics should be moved as London is not safe. I think FIFA also made the right decision. Even more importantly, the Parthenon Marbles are not safe in London and should be returned to Athens immediately.

John Akritas said...

H. You wouldn't believe the amount of cops in the streets in London. My neck of the woods, usually teeming with clubbers, diners and drinkers, is deserted. I've never known it so quiet. Yesterday, all the shops closed early and boarded up their windows. Only a KFC and a couple of pubs stayed open. And we weren't that badly affected. I don't know what to make of it all. The British do like a moral panic, so there may be some exaggeration going on, though it's not as if nobody knew there was a significant part of the population who wouldn't think twice about killing you for your ipod. And, indeed, a lot of the worst trouble happened in Tottenham and Hackney, very close to the Olympics site, and the Olympics was won on the basis of what a vibrant, tolerant and integrated multicultural city London has become, when in fact it's all violent black gangs, feral white kids, Islamic nutcases and English Defence League neo-Nazis. Could be interesting next summer.

Hermes said...

Frankly, I do not care about British society. They deserve everything the get. Perhaps the Brits should sort out their own mess before they arrogantly go galavanting around the world lecturing everyone else.

I just hope the Greeks are safe and their property is not damaged. Everytime I am in London I am quite touched by the islands of Hellenism that are spread across the city. In the dignified households and humane souls of those Greeks, lies the way forward for British society. But, they are too far gone to realise. Ostoso, gremise tous!

Greeks should be watching developments in Syria carefully. It is absoloutely imperative that Assad holds his coalition together and does not give in. A Saudi Arabian sponsored Turkey is itching to make a difference in favour of the Sunni Islamists in Syria. However, if Assad stays then this emboldens not only the Alawi and Christians (including Greek Orthodox) but also surrounding groups such as the Alevis in Turkey which number about 15 million and sympathise with the Alawis. Although, Assad's regime has sometimes acted against Greek interests in Cyprus, the alternative is much worse.

How long before Turkey starts sucking up to Israel again? 6 months? 1 year?

Try last week!

From one of my favourite Zionist "news" sites, israelnationalnews.com:

Turkey Helps Israel Keep Illegal Aliens Out

Despite tension, Israel and Turkey continue to cooperate - and on Tuesday, Turkey helped Israel keep 97 illegals from coming here.

Without "HEAR O YISRAEL YHWH IS ECHAD" ... lol ... Turkey is a nobody. The Turks know it, the Israelis know it.
