THE NEW DIRECTION FOR TURKEY EURASIAN UNION

THE NEW DIRECTION FOR TURKEY EURASIAN UNION

The new and the coming advancements in EU do not seem too good for Turkey.

And the proceedings for the accession negotiations are not ad-vancing as well as in the honeymoon days.

The first change took place in Germany.

German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder passed his seat to Angela Mer-kel. She hotly backed the idea of a “privileged partnership” for Turkey during her leadership campaign and got elected.

After Schröder the Italian prime minister also left the stage. He was one of the two backers of Turkey during its accession framework talks.
On the night of Oct. 3, 2005, when talks broke down and the Turkish delegation stood up to quit, he was one of the two who managed to convince them to return to the table and proceed.

The other of the two bac...

IS THE TIME BOMB TICKING UNDER CYPRUS

IS THE TIME BOMB TICKING UNDER CYPRUS

The destiny of Cyprus might have been settled along with all of the other problems between Greece and Turkey ages ago if the notorious “Megalo Idea” (The great project) of the Hellenic nation hadn’t poisoned the minds of the Greeks and Greek Cypriots. The peace between the two peoples of the island of Cyprus was painfully destroyed first by the Greek population transfer in the middle of the 18th century, and then again following the Greek independence.

 

The British Empire put the island in a deep freeze after acquiring it from the Ottomans in 1878. As common members of the British Empire, the local Greeks and Turks seemed to forget that they were supposed to be killing each other in the following decades.

The Greek Cypriots were unfortunately poisoned by th...

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS HEADSCARF VS DEMOCRACY

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS HEADSCARF VS DEMOCRACY

 

If this is what you think of the presidential elections in Turkey, you are singing the wrong tune.
This very election will help Turkey’s democracy to deepen, to be more stable, rest on a solid basis and widen the borders of the rule of law in Turkey.
If democratic rules are breached in Turkey, the consequences will, like a domino effect, deprecate the principles of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and the rule of law.

This presidential election is now a major test of democracy in Turkey; everybody should respect the democratic process.

 

The election of the Turkish president should be made according to democratic rules and Turkey’s Constitution. The world has a strong belief in Turkish democracy an...

WHO CREATED THE CYPRUS PROBLEM?

WHO CREATED THE CYPRUS PROBLEM?

In the Greek Cypriot version of history, Greece’s national issue, the “Megali Idea” (Mega Idea), the wish of “Enosis,” — meaning the annexation of Cyprus to Greece — stands firm.
The Enosis concept, based on the map of the Megali Idea drawn in 1791 and encapsulating the island of Cyprus in the territories of Greece, which at the time was under Ottoman rule, has stayed on the agenda ever since. This problem, led by Cypriot and Greece Orthodox Churches within their own historical evolution, has various stages.

 

1st stage: The problem called “Cyprus” actively appeared for the first time after the mapping of the Megali Idea in 1791, release of Enosis manifesto on 1821 and the uprising of Greeks under the leadership of Greek Orthodox Church.

OTTOMAN MONUMENTS GROUNDED BY GREEKS IN CYPRUS

OTTOMAN MONUMENTS GROUNDED BY GREEKS IN CYPRUS

The heavy and loud Greek propaganda blames Turkish Cypriots for the destruction of Christian monuments with in the territories of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus but this one sided and in the majority of the cases, deceiving Greek propaganda never mentions the Ottoman or Turkish monuments destroyed by the Greeks.

 

In 1963 the Greek/Greek Cypriot ambition to achieve Enosis (the union of Cyprus with Greece), culminated in a terrible onslaught, with much bloodshed, on the unarmed Turkish Cypriot people, depriving them of their fundamental human rights, left thousands of them dead, wounded, missing and uprooted from their homes.

 

An important aspect of these attacks was the deliberate destruction of over 100 mosques, shrines and other precious Ottoma...
