deniz, who are you talking about, the incompetant who cannot comply with their own Agreement? or is it the businessmen who are supplying the water, because they are Jewish/Israelis?

...so do you figure Turkey will be a better partner soon, as they privatise whatever is left of the north's Public Works, would she take kindly to the same treatment as the Israelis in this case? and given that these "Turks" will be Erdogan's cronies, who will consider your plaint, when the service is less, as well as the quality, (and prices go up)?

what joy is there in this post halil? i hope that you posted it because it is unsettling, and not to demonstrate a superiority by Turkey over its adversaries, because it appears as though Cypriots, whether Greeks or Turkish are hostage to a deeper state, corrupted to the point where only "Turkishness" counts.

...as for water, beh, think carefully.

Reported in the Jewish Press...

..."People who have been paying attention know that relations between Israel and Turkey have been eroding, but not many realize that Turkey is now not only openly hostile to the Jewish State, but also to the Jewish people.

On Friday, January 11, a Turkish citizen took a picture to show exactly how belligerent Turkey has become. The picture is of a huge poster with the words, “Who Would You Like to Meet if You Could?” and the last name, and only photograph, is of Adolf Hitler. The other choices include Suleiman I, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Napolean Bonaparte, the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Vladimir Lenin, Boris Yeltsin, Leonardo Da Vinci, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Michael Jackson. But only Hitler warranted a picture, a huge one at that.

According to Ege Berk Korkut, an active Turkish writer and blogger, the sign was placed in the Sapphire Mall by the owners, a group of Turkish businessmen who are devoted to Erdogan. Korkut explained to The Jewish Press that the Sapphire is an ultra-upscale mall in Levent, the wealthiest neighborhood in Istanbul. The Sapphire building is one of the tallest buildings in Europe..."


To be fair to the more decent thinking people of Turkey, a lot have complained but the owners of the mall are refusing to remove it.

It seems the Turks are enamored


"Mein Kampf, the book Hitler wrote in prison before he rose to power in 1933, has become a bestseller in Turkey, provoking consternation.
The dreams of creating a master race are being snapped up by young Turks. Its publishers believe that more than 100,000 copies have been sold in the past two months."

... and there's more direct anti-Israel action reported, this time by the Rubbish Regime of "trnc" within the Occupied Areas...

The water treatment plant in Occupied Vokolida was modernised and is run by an Israeli Company. It supplies the tourist industry in the area.

The Sewage Regime of "trnc" are refusing to honour an agreement to pay the electricity supply for the plant, an agreement whereby the Israeli Company invested huge amounts up-front to update the plant to modern standards in return for "trnc" paying the lecky bills. The amounts invested by the Israeli Company are reported as being... "millions of dollars"...

In the light of disruptions to its electrical supply and the obvious coercion brought on by "trnc"'s failure to honour the agreement, the Israell Company may be left with no choice but to close down the works and leave.

Good it serves them right, i hope they do lose their investment. What do expect dealing with criminals on stolen lands.
I also wish for all foreign investments in the occupied to die a death. Inshallah.

...but beyond the right and wrong of that, sooner or later someone will die, because the so called TRNC is not Good Government showing no Good Faith.

I’m sure Cyprus is already a member of the European equivalents which Turkey can’t join!

Halil,

the moral of the story is:

Internationally Cyprus can block Turkey, Turkey cannot block Cyprus.

I.e. Internationally Cyprus has a say in Turkey, Turkey has no say in Cyprus.

There is hope then... Some MK excerpts...
What has made the Greek ideal of beauty immortal is the wonderful union of a splendid physical beauty with nobility of mind and spirit.


The differences between the various peoples should not prevent us from recognizing the community of race which unites them on a higher plane. The conflict of our times is one that is being waged around great objectives. A civilization is fighting for its existence. It is a civilization that is the product of thousands of years of historical development, and the Greek as well as the German forms part of it.


Within a few decades the whole of Eastern Asia, for instance, appropriated a culture and called such a culture its own, whereas the basis of that culture was the Greek mind and Teutonic skill as we know it.


Accordingly no sacrifice can be too great when there is question of securing the political freedom of a nation. What might have to be deducted from the budget expenses for cultural purposes, in order to meet abnormal demands for increasing the military power of the State, can be generously paid back later on. Indeed, it may be said that after a State has concentrated all its resources in one effort for the purpose of securing its political independence a certain period of ease and renewed equilibrium sets in. And it often happens that the cultural spirit of the nation, which had been heretofore cramped and confined, now suddenly blooms forth. Thus Greece experienced the great Periclean era after the miseries it had suffered during the Persian Wars.


It is a characteristic of our materialistic epoch that our scientific education shows a growing emphasis on what is real and practical: such subjects, for instance, as applied mathematics, physics, chemistry, etc. Of course they are necessary in an age that is dominated by industrial technology and chemistry, and where everyday life shows at least the external manifestations of these. But it is a perilous thing to base the general culture of a nation on the knowledge of these subjects. On the contrary, that general culture ought always to be directed towards ideals. It ought to be founded on the humanist disciplines and should aim at giving only the ground work of further specialized instruction in the various practical sciences. Otherwise we should sacrifice those forces that are more important for the preservation of the nation than any technical knowledge. In the historical department the study of ancient history should not be omitted. Roman history, along general lines, is and will remain the best teacher, not only for our own time but also for the future. And the ideal of Hellenic culture should be preserved for us in all its marvellous beauty. The differences between the various peoples should not prevent us from recognizing the community of race which unites them on a higher plane. The conflict of our times is one that is being waged around great objectives. A civilization is fighting for its existence. It is a civilization that is the product of thousands of years of historical development, and the Greek as well as the German forms part of it.
