Turkish Cypriot authorities still have not conducted a credible investigation of the 1996 murder of a prominent leftist Turkish Cypriot journalist, Kutlu Adali, who wrote articles critical of Turkey's role in the north and particularly on the role of the Turkish military and of policies that allowed large numbers of Turkish workers into the north.
Greek Cypriots visiting from the south still may not travel in the north in their personal vehicles but must use taxis or buses and pay the crossing fee.
In the Greek Cypriot community, disabled persons who apply for a public sector position are entitled to preference if they are deemed able to perform the required duties and their qualifications equal those of other applicants.

As to the Greek Cypriot Government, it is giving proofs of such unbelievable liberality and benevolence in the matter that its attitude amounts to little less than aiding and abetting the international terrorists who are using Cyprus as a training ground, a supply center and an operational basis.

 Section II- GREEK CYPRIOT EAGERNESS...
On 3 July 1990, the Greek Cypriot administration in South made a unilateral application under the usurped title of "the Government of the Republic of Cyprus" to become a member of the EU (then EC) purporting to act for and on behalf of the whole of Cyprus.
A further legal aspect of the unilateral Greek Cypriot application is the restriction imposed by the international treaties, which had established the bi-communal 1960 Republic in any international organizations and pacts of alliance in which Greece and Turkey are not both members.
The Greek Cypriot side has made no secret of this fact and is apparently prepared to make empty gestures of concession, such as purporting to accept "limited sovereignty" of the federated states, rotating Presidency etc., in order to achieve EU membership.

 Cypriot Greek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cypriot diglossia makes the dialect one of only two Greek dialects currently still widely used; the other, Pontic language, is healthier in the former Soviet Union and Turkey than in Greece itself, where its use is increasingly emblematic.
The modern Cypriot dialect is not an evolution of the ancient Arcadocypriot dialect, but evolved from Koine.
The legislation of the Kingdom of Cyprus in the Middle Ages was written in the dialect.

 'Turkish Cypriot move contradicts Turkish theses on Cyprus' - Turkish Daily News May 02, 2007
An appeal by 78 Turkish Cypriots to vote in elections held by the internationally recognized, Greek-led administration of the southern half of the divided island was rejected Monday by the Greek Cypriot Supreme Court, sending the issue to the European Court of Human Rights.
On Monday, the Supreme Court of Greek Cyprus rejected the appeal by the Turkish Cypriots, ruling that Turkish Cypriots cannot vote in the Greek Cypriot elections unless the decades-old Cyprus deadlock is resolved.
In that respect, although the Turkish Cypriot applicants live on the island of Cyprus, they reside in areas that are not controlled by the Greek Cypriots," said Özersay, adding that he believed the European court would not rule in favor of the applicants.

 End to division on horizon as Greek, Turkish Cypriot leaders talk | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders meet today for an intense round of peace talks, and many Cypriots are considering what was virtually unthinkable a few weeks ago – that the island could soon end years of division.
Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots live interspersed throughout the town, mostly in two-story homes with gardens of olive, orange and lemon trees.
Greek and Turkish Cypriots battled one another in the 1960s and the island was divided after a Turkish invasion in 1974 following a coup by supporters of union with Greece.

This is because the negotiations involved the Greek Cypriots and Turkey, the occupying power in the northern 37 per cent of the island since 1974, rather than Turkish Cypriots.
Greek- Cypriot concerns over this imbalance were exacerbated when Ankara was granted its demands while a number of important Greek-Cypriot requirements were not incorporated into the plan.
Cypriots from both communities realise that the international push to resolve the Cyprus problem has little or nothing to do with what happens on the island.

THE government said yesterday it would pull out all stops to thwart the exploitation of Greek Cypriot properties in the occupied north, though conceding that the continued division of the island was a considerable impediment.
The President was being asked to comment on widespread media reports on a frenzy of construction in the occupied territories, in the wake of a case last week when a man was arrested in Paphos on suspicion of acting as an intermediary for the sale of such properties.
He went on to confirm that police were investigating “a number of cases” where Greek Cypriots may have been involved in exploitation of properties, but added that no concrete conclusions could yet be made.

 Cyprus bicommunal discussion and chat forum : Learning Greek Cypriot   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Cypriot Greek dialect, although it observes the grammar and syntax of the Greek language, does, in its words and phrases, reflect the language influence of states that have, periodically in the island’s history, occupied Cyprus.
Cypriot Greek has many loan words from French, Venetian, Arabic, English and Turkish that are not found in Greek and has also been influenced by its relative separation from the Greek mainland.
Cypriot Turkish is not listed as an ‘official’ dialect of the Turkish language yet it is considered sufficiently distinct from Turkish to be taught as a separate language and literature at some universities.

 Ancient Scripts: Cypriot
While the earliest examples dating from as early as 1500 BCE cannot be read, comparisons clearly show that the Cypriot syllabary seemed to have derived from Linear A, and therefore is like a sibling to Linear B.
The Cypriot script continued to serve mostly for short dedicatory and funerary texts, but there are instances of longer, historical texts during the 5th century BCE.
In the case of syllable-initial consonant clusters, all consonants except the one nearest to the vowel are represented with CV signs whose vowels agree with the vowel of syllable.

 The Greek Cypriots' Legal Attacks on the Turkish Cypriots
With reference to some of the recent Greek Cypriot summons issued by the Greek Cypriot Courts in the South, against the Turks who are in use of previously Greek Cypriot owned land left in the North, the law is very clear.
Furthermore it is against all legal principles for the Greek Cypriot Courts to claim jurisdiction over land cases situated in the North of the Island that they do not have any control over and so can not enforce any of their judgement.
If the Turkish Cypriots also start to take their land dispute cases with the Greek Cypriots or with the Greek Government to the Human Rights Court, this will mean that the European Court of Human Rights will be suffocated with thousands of Cypriot land disputes.

 Birthplace Of Greek Alphabet Identified
Woodard determined that certain characteristic features of the ancient Cypriot script -- particularly its strategy for representing consonant sequences and elements of Cypriot Greek phonology -- were transferred to the new alphabetic system.
The earliest Greek scripts were syllabic scripts, meaning that each symbol represented a syllable rather than an individual consonant or vowel.
Woodard discovered that the Mycenaean Greek strategy of writing sequences of consonants used a sophisticated sonority hierarchy in which consonants are ranked according to the amount of air obstruction that occurs when the sound is made.

 Cyprus: the only solution is through the unity and the common struggle of the Greek and Turkish Cypriot workers
If mistakenly the Greek Cypriot workers try to lay the blame for the fall in their living standards on the Turkish Cypriot workers and not where it really lies, then inter-communal strife will not be avoided.
In spite of the fact that AKEL controls the great majority of the Greek Cypriot workers and it is the biggest party, because of its adherence to the Stalinist theory of stages, it has never struggled for workers' rule and Socialism.
Only then can the Turkish Cypriot workers be free of the need to be "protected" by their own bourgeoisie and thus enter into a common front with the Greek Cypriot workers both in the North and the South of Cyprus.

 Cyprus :: Being a Cypriot is an Honor, Pride & Privilege!
The Greek Cypriot language is an idiom (sometimes falsily, or in non-linguistic context, labeled as 'dialect') distinct from the formal Greek language (note that different idioms exist on many of the Greek islands) as it is spoken in mainland Greece.
The Greek Cypriot language is a source of pride for the Greek Cypriot population - many Greek Cypriots consider the dialect to be closer to the Classical Greek language than standard Greek, thus providing a direct linkage between Greek Cypriots and noted ancient Greeks such as Homer and Plato.
I love Cyprus, and all Cypriots, whether they be GC, TC, Maronite, Latin, Armenian, etc...If we are to live together in a truly democratic country, we have to embrace both our differences and our similarities, instead of trying to suppress part of our identity in an attempt to 'make people happy'...if that makes any sense...
