...a letter to Ban Ki-Moon.

Propose and discuss specific solutions to aspects of the Cyprus Problem

...a letter to Ban Ki-Moon.

...July came and went without the clamour predicted by the Turkish Press (where was Downer's sting?), now parodied with predictions of gloom, for Greeks this October.

i wrote this letter to be helpful to Cyprus and Cypriots...


Dear Mr. Ki-Moon,

My hope is that you will consider the value of my thinking now that a way ahead will be proposed that serves a family far bigger than "Greek" or "Turk". My hope is that you will not forget the rest of us who place Universal Principals first. The world needs a definition for Bicommunal, and now the word Bizonal. at 55, i have spent the greater part of my life remembering, not to forget, and to act accordingly. With the revolution of the Information Age, I beg you to google, or blogspot, repulsewarrior; that's me.

Quote:
That federation would comprise a federal government with a single international personality, along with a Turkish Cypriot constituent state and a Greek Cypriot constituent state, which would be of equal status.

...this much we know so far.

(at least) three governing bodies must exist for this agreement to fructify Identities for each.

In my Cyprus, Bicommunal Bizonal Federation is defined by one Sovereign State representing me as an Individual, while there exists for these People, as Persons, National Assemblies with Territorial Jurisdictions, to provide for them as Majorities a means to sustain this identity as well.

In my Cyprus, the Green Line becomes a frontier and not a border, because at least for some, the displaced return as they left, as communities. Enclaves which pocket the whole island offers this opportunity for Individuals to have real choices as Persons (, that will include some of the newly displaced,), with the possibility of more than two "zones" (, Sovereignty never being a question), without tearing the fabric of the living around them, respectful to the reciprocal nature of their recognition for the special needs of the Minorities amongst them, inclusive because the diversity of each society (Turkish and Greek) will expand island wide.

Cypriots rely on your abilities to remember that they may be the few in a wider complexity of the Problem, but they need Good Governance like the Greeks and the Turks, like "Greeks" and like "Turks", or Maronite or Armenian for that matter, and like other Human Beings, based on the Principals of Free Association, Free Expression, Free Movement, and a Rule of Law.

Cyprus is an island afterall, it has never been but one, its Heritance dates back to the beginnings of Mankind, this wealth which is Humanity's cannot be dismissed, either.

Deciding as you will this July, consider this: <<Would Mr. Eroglu recognise Mr. Christofias as President of the Republic, if Greeks were to found an equal form of governance as his own a part from the Federal Government for their leadership.>>, lol.


...your comments (lol): my writing style, a better more useful definition for Bizonal and Bicommunal (in an Information Age), a snide comment meant to be fatal with few words, was this letter read, do you get the joke at the end, is this idea racist; cheers!...

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind...
Williams James (1842-1910)


A BBF would have never been proposed unless these pre-existed:
[a] an unjust, coerced 1960 that equated 82% to 18%
[b] an illegal invasion & occupation

The BBF is the wrong recipe. The right recipe is 1960 with changes. The assertion that tCypriots are afraid is ludicrous. Kurds in Turkey are afraid too, but they are not given an option, are they? Have they suffered any less?

Let us all alter our lives by altering our attitudes of mind.

...indeed Antifon, it is the Constitution as it stands that is the starting point, and here lies the crux, the Communal Chamber and the method with which taxes are collected for the social works we want.

...indeed, the Constitution needs reform (it is a requirement through our EU agreement to keep our membership, no less), I agree. look carefully at my proposal, it allows for the same respect, within National Assemblies, to be offered to Maronites and Armenians within our Sovereign State because it is based on Universal Principals. "mixed" communities will mostly exist, as urban settings, (and) as our integration into the EU matures, our municipalities will be better served when the equality of the Communities is demonstrated by each's abilities in sustaining an Identity, while recognising the reciprocal need to provide for the special needs of Minorities amongst them.

please note:

-a federal government must exist.
-a Turkish Cypriot constituent state must exist.
-a Greek Cypriot constituent state must exist.

...in either case (the Constitution, and my manifesto) there is this bicommunal Principal.

as you know, things can never return to the way they were. now, as then, we must choose to make things better. if as Greeks and Turks we can engage in an effort which can sustain the ability we have to serve in social-exchange with our neighbouring global partners, Cyprus as an island gains its Freedom. if within this context we can amongst ourselves demonstrate the same sense of respect and Goodwill as Persons, Cypriots will gain their Freedom.

...then there are the displaced, and the settlers, reality on the ground, they need for us to recognise them as Human beings; what is wrong with enclaves (they repopulate, they secure our Right to Free Movement and Association,) to end the use of the Green Line as a border?

...then as now we end the Subjugation of Nations, one over the other, with Statehood (, and Grace). Ataturks dream before the Kemalist regime, so too this Bicommunal definition when applied in the Middle East, Jerusalem a Capital that houses more than one governing body while Palestians in some geographic context remain enclaved Jews too would live amongst Arabs, or Kosovo in a Greater Serbia with Herzigovina (sorry for the spelling), or Iraq; it allows for people who respect that in their Identity they live as Individuals as well as Persons, their political representation reflects these facts.

Dear Mr. Ki-Moon,

My hope is that you will not forget the rest of us who place Universal Principals first. The world needs a definition for Bicommunal, and now the word Bizonal. At 55, I have spent the greater part of my life remembering (Cyprus), not to forget, and to act accordingly.

Cyprus is an island. After all, it has never been but one, its Heritance dates back to the beginnings of Mankind, this wealth which is Humanity's cannot be dismissed, either.

Deciding as you will this July (now October), consider this: “Would Mr. Eroglu recognise Mr. Christofias as President of the Republic, if, Greeks as Persons were to found an equal form of self-representation as his own, separate from the Federal Government, but as distinctive (“Greek first, Turkish first”) in its leadership.”, lol.

Most Warmly, I Prey you have Good Guidance.


...here joe, the letter Mr. Ki-Moon would have read, can this be called racist?
