Erhan, Thanks for the URL.
I tried it and it works on Mosaic. However, it does not work on Netscape which is a very popular version of Mosaic.
It just gives the program that you wrote. Your homepage is great. I did not have time to go thru it in detail yet; but
I'm impressed with what I have seen. I am surprised that Turgut (I'm assuming he's the one from UPENN) wouldn't
let y'all use his picture. I have seen that picture and I really like it. [Actually it's one of my Owlnet backgrounds.]

If you don't mind, I will link your page to my homepage. I am trying to setup a section about Cyprus. right now I
don't have time to work on documents myself. I am maintaining two homepages for RiceInfo and with classes and
stuff, it takes pretty much all of my time. However, I will let you know if I have any info or suggestions....

Thanks again, Hamide

PS: If you talk to Canan and/or Candan, say hi from me. I don't have an e-mail address for either one of them.

Good job!

I'm US representative of Turkish Daily News. I live in Washington DC, USA.
If you come across any important news tips about TRNC I'd be interested to
hear about them.

Good luck!

I am very intrigued by your use of the internet to promote the TRNC. Could you please tell me more about your work, what audience you
have in mind and whether you believe that this facility is something which can be used by both Greek and Turkish Cypriots.

Look forward to your reply.

Content-Length: 2890 X-Status:

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
perpetrates inaccuracies 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

Subject: comments on your page

I am very impressed by your page. I was particularly glad to see all the news about the fire, though it was very disturbing news of course.
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.

Erhan hi !! I took a look at your home page... nice additions... I will not comment on their contents since we talked about it many many times
before and none of us will change his views. But I would liked to point one technical mistake that your have in your account. Your are putting
as counter of your page the count of ege university in Turkey instead of your own page's counter. I thought it would be of help to point this to

Subject: Informational Just!!!

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.

Pantelis Messolonghitis.

First I'd like to congratulate you - the North Cyprus home page came out very well. There is only one problem - when I tried to read the text files
the margins were much to big, so one line would be so long that I'd have to scroll to the right to read it. Maybe you should change the font to a
smaller size or make the margins smaller.

Hi from Miami!
First of all I wish to congradulate and thank you for your wonderful work on my corner of heaven.
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,

Sincerely Yours.

Yasar and Erhan, Congratulations on providing such a comprehensive homepage about our beloved country, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
I am outraged to read some of the comments from Greek Cypriot extremists talking about "getting rid" of this wonderful page. Next paragraph is for
them, please put it on your list of comments about your page: And you Greek Cypriot bigots out there who are trying to silence the voice of the Turkish
Cypriots (just like your ancestors did a few decades ago), you will not succeed. Freedom of speech and freedom of self-determination for the Turkish
Cypriots have prevailed and will stay that way. The lies that you have fed to the western countries will be uncovered -- no wonders you are so nervous
about us making our voice heard.

Once again Yasar and Erhan congrats! Esin Terzioglu.

Hi Yasar, Many thanks for such a well-designed and detailed site about Northern Cyprus.
I went there for the first time in July of this year - I had a really good time and ate too much.
Two of my relations work at the East Mediterranean University, and have tried to e-mail me
from there, but with no success. Also, when I try to connect to any server in the '.tr' domain
(including EMU from your site), I always get a name server error: 'No entry for that address'.
Do you know what's going on? If you do, I'd be grateful if you would explain the problem to
me. Thanks in advance.

Subject: Internet North Cyprus Web site - comments

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,
talking about books, there is an excellent book full of historical detail rather than rhetoric by Pierre Oberling called "The road to Bellapis" if
anyone is interested. It has some of the pre-'74 Macarios speeches quoted make hair-raising reading.

CONGRATUALTIONS for an EXCELLENT showpiece! (I'll buy you a drink if you come over my way...)

Dear Mr Senturk I read your home page on the TRNC with great interest -- I am an English journalist based in southern Nicosia for Reuters news agency.
I travel to the north of the island from time to time and am very interested in contacting Turkish Cypriots to get their side of things and a balanced view.
There is so little contact between the two sides that the Internet can actually be an exciting new channel. I don't know if you know, but this freedom of
access was an issue hotly debated in the Greek part of Cyprus, with some people saying they didn't want to open the gates to Turkish propaganda.
Anyway, here we are now, on the Net and able to communicate and I'd be happy to hear from you.

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 interested in the situation and is not familiar with the subject.

Subject: Information

I have been a regular visitor to your North Cyprus Web site for some time. I find it to be an excellent and informative homepage and
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 few days ago to the address specified I received a message back indicating that
this address did not exist. I had hoped to make contact with my brother through this source, but have had no luck. Is this the correct EMail
address or have I somehow made an error? Do you have any suggestions as to how my brother and I might establish contact? I tried sending
a message to the Mahir BBS but got no reply.

Thank you for whatever help you are able to offer.

I wish I had the time now to chat with an ignorant like youself but I have to go and do some more important "real" stuff in
contradiction to your own "imaginary" world. I wll be writing very soon. Oh, by the way Internet is supposed to be a trustfull
and reliable source of information. Do you consider your page to be one? I don't think so. Sleep toonight in your small
imaginary dream world, and I'll be talking to you soon.

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.

yours sincerely
Murat Hassan

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 Greeks, I guess you lost count!

Yashar Senturk,
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 Greek-Cypriots are
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 and Greek-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.

Dear senturk, I congradulate you for writting such good www pages. Since I am a norh cypriot-turkish, I had a go on the pages  . There ara lots of information on cyprus which I consider to be interesting
and well explained. When I saw the www pages I was very proud but i like to make some comments.

1) Some of the font types not easy to see and read, and does not look good.
2) Some text are very difficult to read. such as small white text on bright blue back ground colour

Mr Senturk,
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

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 substantially otherwise.

- all Greeks and Turks have no business meddling there, so bugger off!

about cypriotic media. We´re very grateful that you answered so quickly. The adresses were very useful for our work. Now we have some more questions
about northern Cyprus. How and from where is the republic of northern Cyprus ruled? Is there any cooperation between the greek and the turkish side?

Does the state use censorship towards the press? Do you have any other information about the terms of work for the turkish-cypriotic journalists?
If you can help us in any way, by answering our questions or recommending litterature, we would be very grateful.
