Erdogan seizes 50 churches and monasteries, declares them Turkish state property

mor gabriel

As Turkey continues its Islamization under Erdogan, it becomes increasingly hostile to Christians and Christianity. This fact should give pause to the fond and foolish purveyors of “Muslim-Christian dialogue” and Christian “outreach” to Muslims, but it won’t.

Να μην ονειρεύεται κανείς αποχώρηση τουρκικών στρατευμάτων

“Κανείς να μην ονειρεύεται, οι τουρκικές ένοπλες δυνάμεις θα συνεχίσουν να βρίσκονται στην Κύπρο”, δήλωσε ο ‘υπεξ’ Ταχσίν Ερτουγρούλογλου στο ειδησεογραφικό πρακτορείο Ανατολού. Για το εδαφικό ανέφερε ότι δεν τίθεται θέμα να δοθεί η Μόρφου ή η Καρπασία και δεν τίθεται θέμα να μειωθούν οι ακτογραμμές. Για τη δήλωση της Βρετανίας ότι θα δώσει ένα μέρος των εδαφών των βάσεων για τη λύση, ο Ταχσίν Ερτουγρούλογλου είπε ότι πρόκειται για βρετανικό σόου.

Democracies die behind the closed doors: the chilling parallels between the ‘Munich Conference’ and the ‘Conference on Cyprus’

munich-agreement.jpg

Klearchos A. Kyriakides

According to the celebrated American judge, Damon J. Keith, ‘democracies die behind closed doors’.  (Source: Detroit Free Press v Ashcroft, 303 F. 3d 681, Court of Appeals, 6th Circuit, 2002.)

Judge Keith articulated his memorable dictum as a means of justifying the cherished principle of open justice. Nevertheless, his dictum is likewise capable of being applied in other contexts as well.

These include secret ‘conferences’ and any clandestine meetings conducted by politicians or diplomats, particularly in circumstances where the destiny of an existing sovereign state may be at stake.

With a ‘Conference on Cyprus’ due to ‘reconvene’ in secret at Crans Montana near Geneva on 28 June 2017, this article shines a spotlight on to what appear to be the chilling parallels between that ‘Conference’ and the ‘Munich Conference’ which resulted in the Munich Agreement of 29 September 1938.

The Illegal Treaties on Cyprus, by William Mallinson

Treaties on Cyprus 1960

The treaties of 1960 that allegedly established an allegedly independent Republic of Cyprus were never intended to allow a central government of Cyprus to behave independently. This because these treaties were predicated on keeping the Soviet Union out of the Eastern Mediterranean as much as possible. The whole arrangement was therefore based on the British bases. The fact that Cyprus became a member of the United Nations was based on the treaty of Establishment. The trouble is that the whole package of treaties (also of ‘Alliance’ between Greece, Turkey and Cyprus, and of ‘Guarantee’) reflected illegality, essentially because of the Treaty of Guarantee. Why? Because the Treaty of Guarantee was in contravention of the United Nations Charter. Even the Foreign Office Law Officers recognised in 1967 that the treaty contravened Article 2.4 of the United Nations Charter, and was completely overridden by Article 103.[1]

Turkey provokes the world celebrating Islam’s holiest night in Hagia Sophia

Hagia Sophia Koran Reading

Turkey has made good on its promise to have Koranic prayers read in the church of Hagia Sophia, one of Christianity’s greatest religious and architectural monuments.

The provocative move was denounced by UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General, Francesco Bandarin saying UNESCO’s position on the matter is clear, “Hagia Sophia is a UNESCO world heritage site’’.

The Economic Dimensions of a Cyprus Settlement

You either have democracy and you’ve got a good economy, or you have partition called ‘bi-zonal’ and you don’t have an economy, that’s my understanding of things. Now, compensations. The reports usually avoid the issue of compensations, and they say that this is not part of the scope of the study. Why do they avoid it? They avoid it because the numbers don’t tally. If you take the occupied areas in where the Turkish state – because there is not going to be a Turkish Cypriot state, there is going to be a Turkish state – so what the Turkish state will have, it will have roughly 3,000 square kilometers of land under its own jurisdiction. Just think of 3,000 square kilometers of land, and starting the compensation of the owners. The moment you get into that, we are talking about 40, or maybe even 50 billion Euros of compensation.”

The Pact of Umar – the Status of Non-Muslims in Islamic Territories

Jizya

A “dhimmis” is a non-Muslim living under Islamic law who has paid a special tax and agrees to a long list of strict conditions. Rather than tax Muslims, the Western world actually helps support the Islamic religion by granting them TAX FREE status under religious and charity laws.

Τα κρίσιμα που αποσιωπώνται στο Κυπριακό

cyprus talks

Του Φοίβου Κλόκκαρη* (24 Οκτωβρίου 2016)

Στις ενημερώσεις, για την πρόοδο των διακοινοτικών συνομιλιών στο Κυπριακό, δύο κρίσιμα θέματα δεν μνημονεύονται και οι πολίτες δεν έχουν ενημέρωση. Συγκεκριμένα:

1.  Το θέμα της Αποκλειστικής Οικονομικής Ζώνης (ΑΟΖ) του Κυπριακού Κράτους. Κατά τις συνομιλίες για το σχέδιο Ανάν το 2004, οι Τουρκοκύπριοι (ΤΚ) με εντολές της Τουρκίας, αρνήθηκαν να αποδεχθούν ενσωμάτωση στο σχέδιο, της νομοθεσίας της Κυπριακής Δημοκρατίας (ΚΔ) για τις θαλάσσιες ζώνες και τη συμφωνία οριοθέτησης της ΑΟΖ μεταξύ ΚΔ και Αιγύπτου. Έκτοτε υπήρξαν σοβαρές εξελίξεις που σχετίζονται με την ΑΟΖ της ΚΔ:

Churches in Turkey being wiped out

Turkey was once considered to be the model of a secular, modern Muslim democracy. Today, Christians are being purged from that country. The most notable symbol of that transformation is the Hagia Sophia. Once a Christian church, it was sacked by Muslim invaders and turned into a mosque. For the last 85 years it was a museum, but recently there have been attempts by Turkey’s Islamist leader to turn it back into a mosque. And of course, Turkey still refuses to acknowledge the genocide of Armenian, Greek and Assyrian Christians.

Το σχέδιο των ισλαμιστών του Ταγίπ: “Λεηλατούν τα πάντα”, γι’αυτό θέλουν εγγυητές για τα κλεμμένα

erdogan quran

Μάριος Ευρυβιάδης 

“Λεηλατούν τα πάντα” στις υπο κατοχή περιοχές της Κύπρου, κατά παραδοχή των Τούρκων και του κατοχικού καθεστώτος. Στο κείμενο του Άριστου Μιχαηλίδη, στον Φιλελεύθερο της Κυριακής (3/6/17), διαβάζουμε πως η κόρη του Ντερβίς Έρογλου παίρνει ως προίκα “κρατικό” οικόπεδο “σε κεντρικό σημείο της Λευκωσίας για να κτίσει πεντάστερο ξενοδοχείο”.

Δεν φτάνουν προφανώς τα όσα έφαγε ο σφετεριστής πατέρας της και συνεργάτης του αρχισφετεριστή Ντεκτάς. Θέλει τώρα να “ταΐσει” και την κόρη του και αυτή τα παιδιά της.
