Is this rubbish or what?

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

The minority is listened every day. Their voice on the media is much louder than what their size. Vasiliou party got less than 3% last elections. Still, we had him and representatives of his party in all media every day.
There are very few countries that such small minorities are listened so much as they do in Cyprus.

You can accuse us that democracy in Cyprus was not good in 1960s or 70s.
We are not stuck in the 60s. We move ahead, and we are a European country now.
So today democracy is very good in Cyprus, and it is not our fault that TC do not participate. It is your choice, not ours.

I don't agree but I'm not going to explain why, you probably know by now what I'll say.

Tcypriot do you know the difference between a secular state, a military state, a puppet state and a democratic state?
Turkey is a military state and the Army instead of staying in its camps it walks in the streets.Every neighbourhood has its own Surgent Major who controls the prostitute houses, and allows shops to sell or close down-according to how much commission he gets etc etc.The pseudostate is a puppet state or a protectorate of Turkey.Like Turkey the pseudostate calls itself "secular state", although in practice is a military state.
The Cyprus Republic is a Democratic state where more than 1000 politicians, bussinessmen, NGOs, and other important persons spoke up their minds publicly for or against the Anan Plan.And yes in such a democracy even a priest ccould speak up his mind about the Anan Plan.

After reading the Anan Plan and seeing how many violations of the most basic human rights were in there, I couldn’t find a single word to describe it. I was thinking to call it Racist, unfair, violating every principle of humanity, violating the human rights, legalising the results of the Turkish Invasion, but nothing seemed satisfied or complete to to me

Then suddenly the damn priest found the exact word. "SATANIC"!!!!

PS.If this priest managed to influence 1,2,100 grandmas to vote NO is irrelevant.IT IS THE COST OF HAVING A DEMOCRACY. The opposite would mean to have the Turkish Army threatening 50,000 settlers to vote for Denktash or Eroglou or else the next day they are packed back to Turkey.
