According to an article in yesterday's Afrika newspaper, Turkey is providing 3.75 million TL in support for health services, 4 million TL in support for education and 16 million TL to build these 21 new mosques. Are the existing mosques in Cyprus filled to capacity?

This is a sign of what kind of solution Turks have in mind.North just getting financial aid from Turkey and also from EU through the stupid ROC supporting their capability to refrain from a "fair" solution.
Question: is the war of 1974 between Turkey and ROC officially ended? I am sure not. Maybe ROC is the only state in the World supporting financially the invators during a war.!!!!It seems that ROC is paying taxes to the Sultan of the area-like the old good days.

To answer your question, no. However TRNC is need of construction activity, so Allahu-ekber. I am not even religous.
They may even spend some of that money converting the churches!

Then perhaps you should start repairing the houses and churches you're going to return to us following a solution.

These mosques are clearly for the settlers. For mosques, read voting booths. In Turkey they give free refrigerators in Cyprus its mosques. I hope its all a joke. I doubt if there is enough Vakf land to build these. Oh, I forgot why not steal more Cypriot land!! What a good idea. :twisted:

Perhaps a rumour that Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque in Larnaca will changed into a cathedral will change their minds. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Most of Varosha belongs to vakif so all they have to do is exchange, I am sure GC owners would love to do that exchange. :wink:

The Turkish Cypriots should be given an ultimatum to repair all the churches within a reasonable period of time or Tekke turned into a pig sty.

Fair & square is the way I like it…
