Biden's Carbon Footprint

Biden’s Carbon Footprint

“I am not here to impose a solution, but find one,” said the Vice President of the United States Joe Biden after arriving at the Larnaca airport Wednesday.

What a waste of kerosene.

This is a surprise: Biden, usually a complete waste of space, did not allow the Turkish occupiers of Northern Cyprus to use him for propaganda purposes. The Turks are whining that he rejected to fly their flag during his visit.

While the West disarms, Turkey is busy arming itself (thanks to eye on the world)

(Turkey) Last May, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited Greece and asked them to cut military spending so that peace could flourish between the two countries and so, ultimately, they could both save money.

Admirable, don’t you think? And promotes the message of peace which Muslims the world over are renowned for. Well, here is something the Turks didn’t mention when they talked about peace in our time last May.

And then there’s Cyprus.

Why are we paying for the Mohammedan occupation of Northern Cyprus?

“These funds will  promote reconciliation and confidence building”–

Ya think? I have a great idea: lets invade some countries, rape the women, kill the the men and drive the rest off and then get the EUro-dhimmies to pay us to promote “reconciliation & confidence building”.   Good work if you can get it, some guys have all the luck!

Cyprus: EU: New Funds to Support Turkish Community via GoV

(ANSAmed) — BRUSSELS, JUNE 27 — Today the European Commission approved 26.5 million euros of funding for the Turkish Cypriot community. These funds will focus on measures to promote reconciliation and confidence building. Beneficiaries will include civil society organisations, schools, farmers, villages, SMEs. “These 26.5 million euro — said Stefan Fule, EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy — demonstrate the continued commitment of the EU to the Turkish Cypriot community and to a Cyprus settlement. The activities implemented by the Commission with this fresh funding are reunification-driven, underlining the EU’s expectations for a successful end of the talks towards reunification of the island”.

The whole Aid Programme for Turkish Cypriot community will total 28 million euros in 2011 and 1.5 million euros has already been approved earlier this year to fund the EU Scholarship Programme for the academic year 2011/2012.

Merkel, don't go to Cyprus!

Merkel promises GermanTurkey help in Cyprus impasse

Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday she would visit Cyprus in January to offer Germany’s help in resolving an impasse holding up security cooperation and Turkey joining the European Union.

“This will be an opportunity for me to see if Germany can play a helpful role in resolving the difficulties that there are,” Merkel said after talks with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Berlin.

Erdogan said progress towards Turkey joining the EU “should not slow down,” and that he had asked Merkel for Germany’s support. Merkel reiterated her position that the process had an “open end.”

Indeed. The jihad is open ended. It  will continue long after Merkel is gone.

Archbishop slams Turkey as Pope visits Cyprus

CBC News

A Greek Cypriot leader criticized Turkey for its occupation of northern Cyprus as Pope Benedict XVI began a pilgrimage to the divided island Friday, bringing a message of peace to the region.

Pope: Bishop’s murder will not hurt dialogue with Islam/which part of “kill the unbelievers” is it that this pope doesn’t understand?

Looks like the Catholic is becoming increasingly irrelevant…..

Addressing Benedict, the head of Cyprus’s Orthodox Church, Archbishop Chrysostomos II said “Turkey has barbarously invaded and conquered by force of arms 37 per cent of our homeland.”

Greek leader refuses “two peoples” proposal in Cyprus talks

(Islamic) World Bulletin

Christofias said the “two peoples and two states” thesis of the Turkish Cypriot side was unacceptable.

Greek Cypriot Leader Demetris Christofias said the “two peoples and two states” thesis of the Turkish Cypriot side was unacceptable calling on Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus President Dervis Eroglu to give it up.

Christofias delivered a speech Friday in Lefkosa, during his meeting with the new British High Commissioner to the Republic of Cyprus John Christopher William Kidd.

He said the settlement talks would proceed as they agreed with former Turkish Cypriot President Mehmet Ali Talat, on the basis of a bizonal and bi communal federation with political equality, single sovereignty, and single foreign representation as laid down by UN Security Council resolutions.

Christofias said though they recorded relative progress in some of the crucial issues in talks with Talat, no major progress took place, accusing his former counterpart of lacking flexibility and autonomy.

Christofias urged the new Turkish Cypriot President Eroglu to give up on the two peoples and two states thesis under a loose confederation. He argued that Eroglu won the elections with votes of Turkish Cypriot citizens who migrated from Turkey.

Cyprus: Bar construction enrages Muslims

Related:

”Religious values should be respected in order the relations between the two sides to remain positive.”

In Cyprus, since the Turkish occupation began:

* at least 55 churches have been converted into mosques
* another 50 churches and monasteries have been converted into stables, stores, hostels, museums, or have been demolished
* the cemeteries of at least 25 villages have been desecrated and destroyed
* innumerable icons, religious artifacts and all kinds of archaeological treasures have been stolen and smuggled abroad
* illegal excavations and smuggling of antiquities is openly taking place all the time with the involvement of the occupying forces
* all Greek place names contrary to all historical and cultural reason were converted into Turkish ones.

Once again, Muselmaniacs manufacture history,  hysterics and spurious claims:

“Cyprus: Bar Construction in Mosque Infuriates Muslims,” from ANSAmed, October 25 (thanks to Jihad Watch):

(ANSAmed) – ANKARA – Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’s (KKTC) Directorate of Religious Affairs has applied to state offices in Greek Cyprus to stop the construction of a bar in the garden of the Hala Mosque in South Cyprus, which has resulted in criticism from Muslims living on the island, Today’s Zaman reports. ”Religious values should be respected in order the relations between the two sides to remain positive”, the director of Religious Affairs in the KKTC, Yusuf Suicmez, said, underlining that it is very important for Muslims because the mosque, that lies on the shores of the Larnaca Salt Lake, reportedly houses the tomb of Umm Haram, the aunt of the Prophet Muhammad, making it the fourth holiest Muslim shrine after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem.

Curiously, Muslims who warn that  “Religious values should be respected in order the relations between the two sides to remain positive”  have no such qualms or considerations when it comes to religious values of others, as we can see here:

Here’s a hint of what happened:

“…he was an Arab Wahhabi, they want to be honoured, they think they are better than us. They say that no Pakistani, no Indian, no Bangladeshi should come into the mosque, but we say that nobody can tell us as Muslims that we cannot pray here. Everyone is made equal in the world,” said Mohammed.”  Hmm, not really: there is dhimmitude and the jiziya which impoverishes and  degrades unbelievers to a status below slaves…

A CLASH involving at least 100 people – some reports say 500 – using stones, sticks and pipes took place on Monday night at Omeriye Mosque in Nicosia, following the ejection of one group of worshippers who followed a different interpretation of Islam to the majority of those present.

Update from Atlas:

Another incident involving worshippers at the Omeriye Mosque had occurred on Sunday night, during a pop concert by Greek artist Pantelis Thalassinos at the Erodos Café and Restaurant next the mosque, while evening prayers were taking place.

Worshippers became angry when their prayers were interrupted at 9.30pm by the start of the concert, and one or two people expressed their anger by starting to throw stones at the assembled crowd. Police intervened quickly, and calm was restored by mosque officials.

UPDATE: The constant agitators are causing trouble in Greece too, incidentally.

Update 2:

European Court of Human Rights condemns Turkey for human rights violations in Cyprus

More on the jihad in Cyprus here. “Cyprus: EU Court Condemns Turkey Of Human Rights Violations,” from ANSAmed, September 23 (thanks to Insubria):

(ANSAmed) - NICOSIA, SEPTEMBER 23 – The fourth section of the European Court of Human Rights issued yesterday its decisions on 18 cases Greek Cypriots brought against Turkey, condemning Ankara of human rights violation due to the continuing occupation of Cyprus’ northern part, which deprives them of their home and properties. All the cases, as CNA reports, rely in particular on Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 (protection of property) and most also on Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life). The Court decided that it is not disputed that the applicants, who were arrested and remanded in custody by the so-called Nicosia district court in the Turkish occupied areas, were deprived of their liberty or that there was an ill-treatment by the so-called Turkish Cypriot authorities…

Turkish Occupation of Cyprus: The Muslims Will Never Leave Unless They Are Driven Out

The Turks will never leave Cyprus unless the Greeks and the EUro-dhimmies get their act together.  Islam, Islamic Turkey  is an implacable enemy to all of Europe, to freedom, democracy and human rights.  

Fat chance though: the self-hating Greeks and the fearful, useless bureaucrats that govern the EU prefer to weasel and lie  about the horrible situation in Northern Cyprus. It is easier and far more convenient to smear everyone who criticizes them as “right wing extremists, Fascists, Nazis or Islamophobes”.  And the useful idiots from the media sing along and blame Israel instead.  A dissonant, ugly tune indeed…

The Muslim occupied churches of Cyprus

The Muslim occupied churches of Cyprus 
The Weekly Standard — Katherine Eastland/H/T Counter Jihad

Last week in Washington, D.C., more pressure was exerted on Turkey to recognize the widespread depredation and pillage of religious sites and objects in the northern third of Cyprus. This third, otherwise known as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus–an illegal, unilaterally declared state recognized by Ankara only–is the land Turkey seized in 1974 and still holds under military occupation.

On Tuesday, July 21–one day after the 35-year anniversary of Turkey’s first invasion on the island in 1974–the U.S. Helsinki Commission released a report for Congress. This 50-page report is entitled “Destruction of Cultural Property in the Northern Part of Cyprus and Violations of International Law” and is presently available online at csce.gov.

The report roundly acknowledges what the government of Cyprus and the Autocephalous Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus, along with many scholars and journalists, have already observed: that “a plethora of archaeological and religious sites have been damaged” and that they are still “in peril.”

The report notes that “500 Greek Orthodox churches and chapels have been pillaged, vandalized, or demolished; 133 churches, chapels, and monasteries have been desecrated; the whereabouts of 15,000 paintings are unknown; 77 churches have been converted into mosques, 28 are being used by the Turkish military forces as hospitals or camps; and 13 are used as agricultural barns.”

Concluding remarks in the report find that “under conventional and customary law, Turkey, as an occupying power, bears responsibility for acts against cultural property.” International humanitarian law pertaining to the protection of religious sites and objects is referenced throughout the report. Under the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), for instance, and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), destruction of cultural property is considered a war crime.

The Commission’s report is notable not for presenting new information, but for being an additional witness, in another forum and before another audience, to the myriad acts of destruction and theft which have occurred, and continue to occur, in the northern third of Cyprus–and under the constant eye of the Turkish military, a force that is 43,000 soldiers strong on the island. Several of the ruined churches were, or still are, within Turkish military camps; their destruction could not have happened without the military’s help and/or compliance. >>>
