A letter to the President

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

A letter to the President

Postby repulsewarrior » Thu Oct 15, 2020 8:23 am

Dearest President,

Somewhere in the USA, someone read today from my blog, the comment I am sending to you.

...i ask, despite such a notion's possibility, is it correct; in terms of the system we have (in need of reform), and its intention: is this not the way we may communicate starting from the Constitution itself?

https://bbxb.blogspot.com/2019/11/leade ... their.html

What is Justice seen, what is confidence building, what is ultimately what Cypriots are waiting for, need, and want (from their Leaders)? 

First, needed is a single step together, you and Mr. Akinci, the most dangerous of all, to stand together under the Flag which rightfully "belongs" to all Cypriots. Thus, enjoined (read: enosis) to banish "Turkishness" and "Greekness" as the same, in the name of  Cypriots; and, as an adversary to such hatefulness, as Cypriots: under the Flag of Cyprus for a Cypriot way standing together. 

To be sure, there will be much shock and opposition to such a notion, that Cypriots exist; (but) from who? 

And if you dared Akinci, after this/his election (holding cards, isolated as he has been, because of his "Cypriotness" (if you will) as the adversary to Erdogan's subjugation) would he find himself with you standing beside him, "being" Cypriot, taking that plunge; because as Cypriots, what is clearer between the two of you is that, Cypriot lives matter?

As such, it is natural, that from the population that sees Cypriots as non-existent, to see outrage; for Cypriots, to expose them, (and to much International esteem,) is that a bad thing? 

There is no denying it, what with Akinci's election win, as I surmise, on Sunday, negotiations between the two of you will become the priority.

The Flag of Cyprus, indeed, by standing under it unifies; making Cypriots equal: like in Turkey no less (and in Greece), as the People, great in their diversity, a State, because as people standing under it  they defend the Universal Principles on which it is based, not just the Nation and the distinct identity on which they may identify as Persons, more but that too "being" Individuals.  

   'Just for Cyprus'; under such a Banner: who dares?   

If you stand under the Flag of Cyprus, who can doubt that the People, Cypriots will stand beside you. 

If you stood under the Flag of Cyprus, together, with Akinci in the occupied territories, wouldn't those who gather better define Cypriots, the People? 

...certainly something to think about.

"Turkishness", a scourge beyond our borders, and in Turkey itself, to get rid of it now, is, in effect, our goal; it can be rid of here, in Cyprus: united, as Cypriots. 

Cypriots, and Turkish Cypriots at the vanguard, not the Alevi or the Kurds, not the Greeks or the Armenians, not the EU or USA, remain the greatest threat to this dogma, at its very root, what is Erdogan's dogma, "Turkishness"; despite having been silenced, torn apart now decades, not usurped: for so long a force as voters representing about half the population (and more) any way its counted, Cypriots.

..also something to think about.

Warmly,

Most Respectfully Yours,
RW

To win our Freedom as Cypriots, Greek Cypriots cannot do it alone.

Without the Turkish Cypriots there is no measure; what is a Cypriot?

...and while we are torn apart as "Greeks" and "Turks", who wins?

Stop and think coldly, GR: who is the enemy?

That’s an old naïve theory that there are enough Cypriot nationalists to eject foreign powers when the island to this day is littered with foreign flags on citizen’s rooftops... let alone government buildings!

Greece has no respect for Cyprus, Turkey has no respect for Cyprus, but more importantly the vast majority of Cypriot citizens have no respect for Cyprus… so it’s a non-starter.

Cyprus will remain a cauldron of foreign powers because that’s the way the global protagonists and the vast majority of Cypriot citizens, want it to be!

Oh, and neither will your nonsense letters solve the problem so spare us from having to wade through them…

...you underestimate the power of people, as a People, GR. Cypriots are Cypriots; when it comes to their personal interest, "Greekness" like "Turkishness" brings Cypriots few benefits compared to their cost.

Unnaturally divided as they are, after decades, such a notion does not fade. Freedom (and Liberty) count; Cypriot lives matter too. And in ending "this", Cypriots still have this opportunity even if they have not chosen it yet.

Turkey will press further, it is what she has done quite predictably in the past. But perhaps this time she has pushed too far, promoting a man like Tatar, who has already demonstrated that he is not credible as a Statesman, or a Leader with any depth, in having thoughts of his own. Something like Eroglu, a powerless figure which can do no better than allow Turkey to grind on the Problem, bringing any progress in negotiations to a halt. All Cypriots will feel the same disappointment.

...Famagusta will be an issue he will press. (So too a submarine base for it, which has always been an intention denied.) There will be rewards for him in playing his part, civil servants will be paid, at least there will be a budget to pay them.

(all for the celebrations in Istanbul in three (read: two) years with Turkey's Centennial, much spent; a "new" Turkey, this example for "Turkishness" and its expanding influence on their lives, that is to say those not "Turkish", Turkish or not.)

In the meantime, opposition will organise and grow against this dogma. Such corruption will not go unchallenged. Cypriots today represent something like half the population (Greek or Turkish), they may come to grips with their Identities, being Individuals, and as Persons quite distinct as well, they may attract a great deal of International attention (and sympathy) for exposing "Greek" and "Turkish" denial as having no value, that Cypriots do already exist, and that "Greekness" and "Turkishness" does not represent them. This simply by gathering in public demonstrations anywhere they may choose, as Cypriots under their Flag, in support of the Universal Principals it represents. Flags play an important role in people's lives, in their display an expression of values. The denial of the Flag of Cyprus as a Nationalist tool has been successful, hard for Cypriots to imagine they are anything more than the extension of a "motherland" or "fatherland".

The Patriots are yet to be seen, but you will find them among the youthful elements of Cyprus and its population. (A hint of which was seen with the Occupy Movement a few years ago.); Citizens of the World, there is no escaping that.

...it is not an issue between Greeks and Turks; the Problem. And it has grown, festering, beyond the Cyprus frontier. At its very root are those few, as you call them, Cypriots, who are Turkish; the tip of a knife which can cut "it" out.

Why refuse to fly the Flag of Cyprus; especially if there was a chance to do so (peacefully) in the occupied territories?
