To all recipients,
I was born and brought up
as an Australian citizen of Cypriot origin and was raised in a pluralistic
society. I am currently living and working in Cyprus
with my wife and two daughters.
I have recently gained access to the INTERNET and wish to express my concern
that Messrs Erhan A. Ince and
Y.Yasar Senturk maintain
a WWW Home Page via the University of Bradford that presents a distorted
picture of the Island State of the Republic of
Cyprus. Cyprus is a forcibly
divided state via the actions of the Turkish military that began long before
I came to Cyprus. Suffice to say that Turkey is
the only country that recognises
the area that its military forces occupy and that the pseudo state of "Northern
Cyprus" is denounced by the United
Nations as an illegally
occupied area. The European court has also declared as illegal for any
member of the EU to receive certain exports from this
pseudo state. This is not
intended to be a history lesson, I am merely highlighting some pertinent
facts to justify the following request.
The WWW Home Page maintained
by the above mentioned persons must cease immediately in its present form.
It does not reflect in a favourable
light the fact that the
University of Bradford sanctions the actions of the above mentioned persons
in maintaining a presence on the INTERNET that
of such a serious nature. Especially since they cannot be deemed as of
an academic nature.
My next actions will be to:
i) contact the recognised
President of Cyprus and recommend that an official protest be levelled
to the Government of England as well as
to the University of Bradford
ii) contact the Government
of England's Ombudsman to see what legal actions can be taken to either
cease the operation, in its present form,
the above mentioned Home
Page and/or reduce funding to the University of Bradford in order to discourage
Home Pages of the able nature
being set up
iii) contact the English
language newspaper The Cyprus Weekly detailing the extent to which the
University of Bradford has allowed the above
mentioned Home Page to maintain
a presence on the INTERNET. The Cyprus Weekly has a substantial distribution
in Cyprus as well as the
English voters in the UK
iv) contact the Cypriot
Minister of Education and suggest that they advise prospective Cypriot
students not to enrol in any courses offered by
the University of Bradford
The ultimate aim of this communication to you is to encourage the spread
of accurate information regarding Cyprus.
Once more people become aware
of the plight of this small nation, then I truly believe that a peaceful
and political solution can be found. My family
and I could then freely
visit every part of the Island without the spectre of a military held area
purporting to be a separate state.
Awaiting your earliest reply

One point about your history--the
1974 events.To the best of my knowledge Sampson did not lead the coup.
He was a desperate choice to
head the govt when others
refused. The coup was directed by the colonels in Athens and carried out
by the Greek troops. Much of the National
Guard deserted. I don't
know how much Cypriot involvement there was prior to the coup. I understood
it wasn't all that much.

Hi, My name is Pantelis Messolonghitis,
and I'm a Greek Cypriot. I've just recently been going through your home
page for Northern Cyprus,
I must admit you did do
a good job, at least better than we did(Cypriot Page). Im just writting
to say that even though your pages have a lot
of truth in them a significant
amount of the information is significantly biased in the sense that you
are trying to convey to the world that taking
36% of the Island was a
must to save the Turkish Cypriots.
I must admit that I don't
know much about history or governmental issues with reference to Cyprus
as I was born outside of Cyprus and have
lived most of my life abroad,
but what I do know is that prior to 74 Turkish & Greek Cypriots did
get along, maybe not like brother and sister but
well enough to avoid the
repatriation of 200,000 Greek Cypriots which find themself's refugees within
their own country for no apparent realistic
reason. I believe that this
is a very simplified version of the truth, however, the bottom line is
that and "invasion" was not necessary and trust me
Turkey never had to worry
about trouble from Cyprus, we are only 600,000 people and you are in excess
of 50mill. Anyway whats done is done
and theirs no point of making
things worse, I just wanted to point out that if your going to tell the
world something theirs no harm in giving an
unbiased view. Well thats
it from me, hopefully Cyprus will be united one day. You never know what
might happen with politician's these days.

Hi from Miami!
First of all I wish to congradulate

Born and raised in North
Cyprus, I have been in Miami attending Florida International University.
At this critical stage of
affairs it is vital that our voice be heard around the world. It is almost
unfeasible to let masses
know of what had happened and what is happening in N. Cyp.
Nevertheless it is immensely
spirit-lifting to see that we are trying it. It is highly unlikely to
speak of the possible peace
settlement in Cyprus. However, to surrender our faith in being
recognized is only impossible.
I wish to hear your opinions and thoughts about the future of
peace talks and the future
of N. Cyp. soon.
My best wishes to you,

Yasar, I have just been reading
"comments" about your first-class North Cyprus site. I would urge my Turkish
Cypriot "vatandaslarimi" not
to be outraged by some the
comments made by some fellow Cypriots (greeks). This may well be the very
first time they are coming into
contact with the true facts
of recent Cyprus history, or, at least, a history which reflects the Turkish
perspective. I suspect this may be true
of others who have so far
been told that Cyprus history started on the day that the Turkish troops
invaded the island in 1974- not 3 weeks
before that when the island
was effectively invaded by Greece! ... This is the strength of the Internet.
Unlike books, you can't burn it. Incidentally,

is an excellent book full of historical detail rather than rhetoric by

http://www.brad.ac.uk/~yysentur/.ncyprus/root.html Firstly, You are talking
about the so called TRNC, which is a term only recognised by Turkey and
Pakistan. That piece of cloth you present as your "flag" is unacceptable.
The real flag is the white one showing Cyprus in orange above twogreen
branches of an olive tree, and is the only one recognised by the whole
world. You talk about the right of the Turkish Cypriot community to be
heard in the U.N and other fora. Noone denies the right of speech to the
Turkish Cypriots. They are the ones that gave up their right to do so when
they decided to withdraw their representatives from the parliament of Cyprus.
You also talk about the "Peace Operation" of the Turkish troops in 1974.
What really happened is that Turkey in an attempt to occupy the island
kicked 200,000 people out of their homes to make them refugees in their
own country, killed, raped defenceless women and children, raviged and
burnt properties and churches and left 1619 people still missing. Is this
a peace operation, or a barbaric invasion? There is a lot of incorrect
and unacceptable data that only missleads and misinforms someone who is

I have been a regular visitor
to your North Cyprus Web site for some time. I find it to be an excellent

keep returning to learn
more about the country. My interest comes from the fact that my brother
and his wife recently took up teaching
positions at the International
American University. I have been casting about for a way to get EMail to
them and for them to respond at
a reasonable cost. I noticed
on your homepage that there is a reference to a business known as Comtech
which is developing a web site
for that university.
I sent an EMail message a

a message back indicating that
this address did not exist.
I had hoped to make contact with my brother through this source, but have

Subject: kibris /cyprus
Yasar may I first of all
congratulate you on a well thought out and informative page I am a cypriot
turk and at the moment I am at
greenwich university studying
computer science. I am currently on my final year and i was happy to find
a page which lets me look
at pictures of cyprus from
time to time . I would just like to say that I have read alot of the mail
that our greekfriends are sending in
and i find it hard to believe
that they want to havethis page banned . At the end of the day unless we
communicate with each otherlike
human beings their is no
way that we will even begin to find a solution so that cyprus can be united
First of all the greeks should
start to think for them- selves and not rely on what their political leaders
have brainwashed them with.
Do they really believe that
the turks just got up one day in 1974 and decided to invade cyprus?. The
cyprus problem goes back many
years and is a complex situation
involving other countries. So what i urge the greek cypriots to do is to
start to think for themselves as
i cannot believe that educated
people of which their are many in south cyprus can have such a narrow minded
view. Both the turks and
the greeks lost alot during
the 1974 war most of my family lost their homes during this time (we are
from paphos) what we must make
sure is that it doesn't
happen again. The first step is to leave the past behind and start again.
Finally let me leave you with one thought
how many more years will
this hate between are two communities go on for? we must make a real effort
to find a solution that is good
for both communities now,
before other countries force us into one like they have done elsewhere.

Dear Bastard, Just wondering
how your little mind led to you to write such bullshit. I hope that you
don't really beleive any of this and you got
payed well enough to waste
your time to write such shit. I liked the ancient Greek Cypriot Monuments
and all the Greek history which you portray
as yours. You've been on
the island since 1751 and you claim to have a history of 2000 years. Where
the FUCK did you get art and history you
stupid son-of a- bitch.
You STOLE it! The question is from whom ? The Armenians, the Curds or the

Subject: cyprus problem
How is it possible that
you have written such nonsense about the Cyprus- problem? How can you say
that the case of the 1619 missing
Greek-Cypriots is based
on deceit and deliberate falsehood? How can you say that it is the fault
of the Greek-Cypriots? Either you are
crazy or you are really
that stupid! Turkey violently attacked the Greek-Cypriots. The Greek-cypriots
had to flee from their houses.
THERE WERE 200.000 REFUGEES!!!!
A lot of Greek-Cypriots were wounded, raped and killed. Even nowadays the
not allowed to go back to
their old houses, friends, shops etc. They are not allowed to go into North-Cyprus.
And how can you say that
there has not been any violence
since 1974? Even in these days there are still fights between the Turkish-Cypriots
You had better get the right
information before writing such crapp on internet. No, I'm not a Greek-Cypriot
who wants revanche. I'm just
someone from The Netherlands
who has studied on the subject and who got the right information.

You ask if there are any
suggestions about the page that you have in the Internet. MY suggestion
to you is to erase this page as soon aspossible,
because you say and you
show things that only you and Turkey beilive that.For example the fantastic
republic that you Create and only Turkey
recognize this. The "Turkish
republic of Northern Cyprus". Can you tell me which Country or which International
Organazition regognize this republic or
that piece of cloth That
you represent as your Flag. In Cyprus thare is only one Flag and one real
goverment and that goverment is the Cypriot Goverment.
Yestarday it was the date
that before 12 years Turkey Create this thing that they call it TRNC. Dont
forget that your lovely Country, In 1974 Invaded Cyprus,
Killed 3000 Men raped Thousands
of women and Created 200000 regugees. I fell very but for you if you are
proud for those sh.... that you call them Turkey
and TRNC. But you should
know that one dayyou are going to pay for all this terrable things that
your country did and still doing in the world. Dont forget the
genocide of 1.5 million
Armenians that your lovely Country did or the thousands of dead Kourds.
Dear Senturk, you must undersand that the TRNC will never
be regognized by The entire
world- Except Turkey- and erese your page from the Internet. You know that
what I am Saying is truth and I know that you are fell
bad foryour Country but
as I told you one day you will going to pay for all the things that you
did to this world
DONT FORGET !!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Mr Senturk, It is odd
that someone of your academic gravitas should not point out that the region
in the North is infact under occupation -
a notion underlined by the
fact that the occupied area is one of the most highly militarised areas
in the world. Let us also not forget all the
enclaved whose human rights
are being violated on a daily level. These are objective and unmistakable
facts - but then if one has one's own axe
to grind,these are quite
easy to surpass. The notion asserted by some that Cyprus is Greek is total
and utter CRAP - the fact that the island
as a whole has a predominantly
Hellenic culture does not make for an extension of Greece. The fact is
that Cyprus has a distinct character as
it is not wholly Greek but
LONG LIVE CYPRUS - FOR THE
- all Greeks and Turks have
no business meddling there, so bugger off!
