Not a single nation recognizes the legitimacy of the Turkish Cypriot state.In contrast, Greek Cyprus is a member of the European Union.Greek Cypriots, unlike Palestinians, vastly outnumbered their adversaries.Indeed, a minority making up about a quarter of the island’s population controls close to 40 percent of the landmass.Thousands of Greek refugees lost their homes more recently, in 1974, than did the Palestinians in 1947.Turkey has far more troops in Northern Cyprus than Israel has in the West Bank.Unlike Israel, Turkey is in NATO — and is currently becoming more Islamic and anti-Western under Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Nicosia is certainly more divided than is Jerusalem.Instead, accept that the Middle East is not just about a dispute over land.Israel is inordinately condemned for what it supposedly does because its friends are few, its population is tiny, and its adversaries beyond Gaza numerous, dangerous and often powerful. Whereas Israel is a member of the United Nations, Turkish Cyprus is an unrecognized outlaw nation.Any Greek Cypriot attempt to reunify the island would be crushed by the formidable Turkish army, in the brutal manner of the brief war of 1974.
We see such hypocrisy when the West stays silent while Muslims butcher each other by the thousands in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya and Syria.
