Absolutely not and you should just give up posting crap about Cyprus given that you don't even live here.

Just stick to your own local issues in Canada and keep out of ours. Ta!


...you have to decide if it's your "Greekness" that is most important to you. and if Cyprus is not much more than Property, or the ground under your feet, i can understand your position, you sound like a carpetbagger.

:lol: That's just ridiculous.

GR, can you call this racist?

...if there is a Republic, and a Turkish Constituency, where is the Greek Constituency?

"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."

...count them, three governing bodies.

With a Greek Constituency ( and others, i.e. Maronite, Armenian, Latin) it is possible to have equality amongst people as Persons, (and dare i say it, with Cypriot Constituencies, the Cypriot People could elect to create an English Constituency, and in the future others if and when it is warranted).

With a Greek Constituency, regardless of demographics, Greek is sustained and promoted.

With a Greek Constituency, the State, and the Government which represents all Citizens without distinction or discrimination, is Free of this bias, (defending Greekness because the overwhelming majority of the island's population is Greek), more credible, it will be better able to defend our Individual Rights as members of the larger family, of Man.

Bicommunal does not mean tearing the island in two, but, it requires from all of us a willingness to overcome the fears we have within ourselves, to change our thinking, to demonstrate that Cypriots, have an intent far more complex than being "Greeks" and "Turks" in a proxy war.

Just like the word Bicommunal, the word Bizonal is only complete if there are (more than) "two" of something which remains a whole. In my Cyprus, enclaves are not a dirty word, and I believe that Justice can be seen if they exist. What of the displaced, the murdered, and the missing, who were/are they that they suffered this fate, in '63, and in '74? What of their return if not for all of them, some of them as they were forced to leave, as Communities? I see enclaves pocketing the whole island, obliging the Greek and Turkish Constituencies to serve an electorate that is island-wide. I see enclaves as a key to securing: Free Association, Free Expression, Free Movement, because as Cypriots we would have these Rights. And, even if the "Green-Line" remains, it will no longer be a "border", but another frontier.

...dividing the island (as in separation) will not bring Peace, it is this hatred and endless cycle of revenge which must be willfully stopped. If we love Cyprus, it is Cyprus that comes first, it does not belong to "us" (read: "Greek"/"Turk"), we belong to it.


...why is this repugnant? (and to who?)

Look I’m gonna be blunt with you:

1. You don’t live in Cyprus
2. You don’t work/contribute here
3. You haven’t served the CNG
4. You don’t understand the Cypriot language even!

So give me one good reason why I should discuss the future of MY COUNTRY that affects MY LIFE with an irrelevant foreigner like you?

Maybe you have some distant memories of things past 40+ years ago but I think it’s high time you just LET IT GO and get on with life in the country you’ve chosen to dedicate your life in.

You DO NOT come across as anything Cypriot and I also suspect you do drugs… the heavy stuff and that is most un-Cypriot! :?

...can you be more clear kimon? how do you mean, if Cyprus must change, move on, step up, however you want to put it, we can all agree that as Cypriots there are Universal Principals which we seek to better, as well as other Idendities from which, as Persons, we express this Love?

How clearer can I be? A constitutional system like the one you have in Canada, like that of the USA and even Switzerland. Sates with internal administration, strong central government. Citizens (minorities and majority) equal in all respects. No bastard "equal partnerhips" betwen the ethnic or religious or whatever else communities the way VP and Lordo advocate.

...then, i ask others to confirm that whatever our differences, we support Cyprus first.

...kimon, whether it is possible or not, does it make sense the idea of a Greek Constituency, if there is a Republic, and other Cypriot Constituencies? should a Greek Constituency be formed?

I apologise but I never had the time to look into the Greek constituency idea of yours. Can you please link me to it again? Thanks in advance.
