...if i were President, the same words i'd say today; maybe not to Malas; is he still involved in the politics of Cyprus, today?

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Our view: Old-style hero worship has no relevance today - Cyprus Mail#comments
Our view: Old-style hero worship has no relevance today - Cyprus Mail#comments

If Mr. Malas wants to support a Federal Solution, i ask, if there is a Republic, and a Turkish Constituency, where is the Greek Constituency?

Turkey may be the 800 pound guerilla in the room, but the fact remains, Justice in Cyprus is to be seen, and it is Cypriots which must display this toward each other. For the proxy war to end, Turks and Greeks can be equals, with National Assemblies for their self-representation, as Persons. But, in a Bicommunal State, as Individuals without distinction or discrimination, as Citizens, united, they would vote for a Federal Government, to defend and to better Universal Principals, as well.

...Mr. Malas, think 12.5 million, two hundred years from now, can anyone imagine the demographics of this island to remain unchanged even fifty years from now? what is best for this island's dwellers, if

like Makarios you fought for Free Will, not just Liberty? and like Makarios, if you lay the blame on Greece, the Greek elite who to this day corrupt themselves, why then the denial, unlike Makarios, that a Cypriot State is better?

...personally, if i could, i would fly the Cypriot Flag attached to my car's attenna, and drive right round the island, in tribute to the great man (and men/women), who chose Cyprus first. if i was a Politician, I would focus on one Cyprus, and the opportunities that existed if within a Territorial Jurisdiction Greek came first, like in a Turkish, Maronite, Armenian, etc. Constituency, equal for the same reason. if i was a Leader, i would seek closure for the displaced, all Cypriots, not just "Greeks", i would seek to have for them the pleasure of their Properties restored, and for some at least, the Right of Return as they left, as Communities. in my Cyprus, enclaves are not a dirty word, they would be scattered across the whole geography of the island, obliging National Assemblies like those Greek and Turkish to provide service to an electorate island-wide, securing Freedom of Movement, and Association because even if the Green Line remains unchanged it becomes a frontier amongst many, not a border; Bizonal because there is one Sovereignty, and within it an ability to sustain diversity geographically.

...Mr. Malas, like his contemporaries have no vision, if they cannot see the value of a Greek state, within a Cypriot State. they are Statesman, like Makarios if they can provide a way of life where we can define ourselves as Individuals while we sustain our Identities as Persons; they are, in my mind traitors to all Mankind if they resist the changes which take us beyond the 19th Century and passed the Modern Age.

"These are not only claims of the Greek Cypriot community, nor do they constitute vindication of the Greek Cypriot community only. We pursue reunification and safeguarding of the human rights of all Cypriots, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, no matter where they belong, what language they speak, or what their religion is”, he said. http://famagusta-gazette.com/president- ... 804-69.htm

...i ask again, why do "Greeks" leave this man impotent, and his words hollow, because beside speaking for all Cypriots, he remains the exclusive representative of the Greek Constituency, as well. (imagine for a moment that a Greek Constituency does exist, the significance of his words, as President of Cyprus).

For the President to have credibility, there must exist a Greek Constituency who represent themselves, it would be very clear, at that point, what position is taken, and what Principals are being supported, by the parties concerned. If as equals, the Constituencies presented unanimously, their demand for Charter to the Republic, it would be a great step toward Constitutional Reform. With such a circumstance, a President can lead, not for a demographic which represents a vast majority, but on (and for) Principals which are Universal.

@ Ocean, (lol) come visit Canada, it is even better.

...mosaic or melting pot, strength from diversity, mixing other than 'pure' breeding, it is possible when it comes to success, based on merit.

lol, northern light as you say, on our backs, under the stars of heaven, at Kantara Castle would be nice, and then down to the beach where I'm sure there will be a fire, music, laughter, and good food to eat.

...my home here is very humble, I thank God that I can at least enjoy the same sky, you are welcome just the same.

...what are you looking for, a Greek state, as it is?

:? Dude, forget your 1950s talk because the Cyprus of 2013 is nothing like you left behind ages ago. You wouldn’t recognize Cyprus now.

There are probably more Cypriot variants now such as…

Cypriot-Romanians, Cypriot-Bulgarians, Cypriot-Serbs, Cypriot-Russians, Cypriot-Brits, Cypriot-Philippinos, etc

...than the ones you lump together as “Greeks” so forget it. Your theories are now INCOMPATIBLE with the current demographics of Cyprus.


Cypriots need the Rule of Law, and self-representation. they do not need "Greek", they need "English", if anything, (and they need a fluency in many languages). as Greeks the concerns of Cypriots are no different to any other National identity, they may be an overwhelming majority to the Republic, but the Republic as the representative of our State, should make no distinctions, or discrimination, of its Citizens. Greeks need to sustain their schools and their daily lives as Greeks, what is wrong with this Liberty for Maronites, and other Constituencies, identified as Cypriot? We need a Federal Government, it should not be meddling in the lives of Individuals, as Persons. and since Cyprus is not a Nation-State, I ask again, why not within, another level of Government?
