PostIsrael and Palestine, Turkey and Cyprus (Robert Gard, USA, 10/16/12 2:07 pm)
Just as Istvan Simon (16 October) disregarded the Geneva Conventions, I disregarded other cases of clear violations of them, in the belief that because other nations have failed to comply is not an excuse to continue the practice.
Cyprus is not as clear-cut as Istvan implies; perhaps he has forgotten that the military dictatorship in Greece stated its intent to annex the Island.
JE comments: I'd like to visit the case of Cyprus, which we've mentioned only tangentially in recent years. Among WAISers, Marga Jann lived there; Yusuf Kanli travels there regularly. What is the current mood on the island, vis à vis the Greek-Turkish division? How easy is it for Cypriots to cross the border?
