How the Americans favour and promote Turks January 11, 2007

I was astonished to read in the Voice of San Diego newspaper the following anti-Cypriot and anti-Greek article by James O. Goldsborough who claims to be a writer on foreign affairs! Well, maybe he is not! Or maybe in his envy of the Greek wealth in terms of money, as well as the rich Greek History and Heritage which counts more than 5000 years as opposed to the American history which is less than 500, he prefers to favour the so-called and illegal state of “Turkish Cyprus” which is only recognized by Turkey itself and is not internationally recognized by any other country including the USA and the United Nations! I bet he is asking the “30 dinars” as Thomas did once when he delivered Jesus Christ! The result of course is known: He hunged himself!

Here is the link to his article > San Diego State’s Turkey Trouble

And here are some comments (only 100 characters are accepted when someone posts a comment to the Editors of that San Diego newspaper) >

“In his effort to take sides, Mr. Goldsborough gets it only half right. Of course meedling in academic affairs by politicians is wrong. He’s absolutely right therer. On the other hand, he calls Eisenstat’s description of the program as immoral “outrageous” and then he places the blame on the island’s division on Greek Cypriots, completely disregarding the illegal invasion that ethnically cleansed hundreds of thousands of Greek Cypriots from the north. While an overwhlemning number of Greek Cypriots want their rights restituted in the North, they realized that the unification plan of 2004 instead validated the ethnic cleansing of 1974.”

“Mr. Goldsborough gets two things mixed up. First one is that he calls Turkish Cyprus the area of The Republic of Cyprus, a European Union State Member, which is currently under Turkish military occupation since July 1974, when Turkey invaded The Republic of Cyprus. Second, the so called and illegal state of “Turkish Cyprus” has never been recognized by any country in the world, except Turkey itself. Third, he refers to the Cyprus-Tuskish conflict and says its as old as Homer’s history. This is wrong, the conflict is since 1963. USA has played its role in the conflict.”

I am very much curious to see if my comment will be posted on their on-line newspaper! I will follow-up to check it on this link >

However, it will be interesting to read any further comments appearing. Let me call this a political debate!
