If you had not spent the best part of three decades opposing his leadership against the British, then his presiding over Democracy for Cyprus ... we would not have a ruddy great dictatorship like Turkey dragging us backwards ....



Kindness, what kindness? I respected as did many Cypriots at the time his position as the President of Cyprus (not his position as a member of the cloth - black cloth in his case). He had decided to misuse the respect we had by his actions in 1963.

...i respect his evolution as a person. Unlike the dogmatists of his time, he changed, and he admitted that the change was necessary for Cyprus to remain an island with its people. He is a Hero because he improved himself with his own Freewill, and he sought the betterment of Mankind, by aligning himself with the Principals that the whole Human race have as Universal.

...Denktash to some degree is his contemporary, although to the end unchanging in the debate, he opened the gates.

Hi Bubbles, sorry about that. I'm not sure why it stops for you, for me it seems okay. I'll post it again to and hopefully it'll play fully for you...
