RECENT HISTORY
The seemingly endless conflicts with Greece and Greeks is one of the most non-sensical and unjust things in the world. To list all of the ways Greeks have tried to hurt Turks would take pages. What disturbs me the most is that much of the conflicts have gone beyond political disputes over Cyprus and Thrace, and into what I call "Turk bashing" - countering anything and everything relating to Turks.

A prime example of this are attempts by Greek-Americans, in conjunction with Armenian-Americans, to prevent the Hollywood production of a movie paying tribute to Turkey's great leader and first president, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Every actor in consideration for the leading role has received hate mail depicting Ataturk in the most horrific light, throwing dirt and slanders on him in every possible way in utter disregard for the truth. Franck Markarian, a writer for Hayastan News (an Armenian news website) described actor Antonio Banderas as the "new public enemy" for considering to take the role. Not just Banderas has been bullied and threatened to decline the role, but also Kurt Douglas and Omar Sherif!

Other examples of their hatred include:


Establishing websites whose only goal is to defame Turkey, Turks, and the Turkish flag in disgusting ways;
Ganging up with the Armenian community to distort the facts on Cypriot and Armenian history in relation to Turks (such as who burned Izmir in WWI and Armenian genocide allegations);
And trying to prevent the establishment of Turkish history departments.
Such conduct prevents the reconciliation of the two nationalities and drowns out the moderate voices of those Greeks who wish peace.

Aside from such purely ethnic tensions, however, there are also some very real political disputes that need to be resolved over Cyprus, the Aegean Sea islands, the rights of the Turkish minority in Western Thrace, and Greek support of the terrorist PKK.

Greek hawk's hopes of pursuing of the "Megali Idea" follows that a decline in the Turkish state will enable/lead to their occupation of eastern Thrace, Istanbul and western Anatolia in addition to Enosis with Cyprus. Therefore all it can do to facilitate such a demise is in the interest of Greek hawks who long for a long lost empire. The only reason why Greece has established partnership with terrorism is the implementation of an "expansionist" policy aimed at disintegrating Turkey.


GREECE CANNOT DENY THAT IT IS A BASE FOR PKK
PKK terrorist organization has been operating in the Balkans, as if being a province attached to the central structure of Europe, its headquarters being in Greece. This "province" is made up of four regions, namely Greece and the (Aegean) Islands, Bulgaria, Romania and South Cyprus.
The "Representative Office of ERNK- Balkans and Greece," opened with the open and full backing of the Greek administration on 5 April 1994, at a building no. 54 in the Vassilisis Sofia Square in Athens, where the Greek parliament is situated and next to the US Embassy, is a HQ where all sorts of subversive activities aimed at Turkey is planned, in cooperation with the Greek politicians. In this office, a magazine called "Kurdistan's Voice," financed by the Greek Intelligence Organization and published by the Greek retired Navy Admiral Andonis NAKSAKIS and a group of Greek journalists is used to prepare materials for PKK's bloody propaganda. Donation campaigns for PKK, air tickets for Zele camp- Syria- Europe and procedures regarding the travels and residence in Greece of PKK militants are carried out in this office. Yet another office of PKK in Athens is at "Ipokratus Avenue no.92." The addresses of other offices of PKK that are operational in Greece are as follows:
The Committee for Solidarity with Kurdistan, Egnatias, No. 75, Salonica. Kurdistan's Red Crescent: Solomu Avenue 54/2. Kurdistan Cultural Centre: Slomensky Street 22. Kurdistan News Agency: Spyrou Trikoupi: 51/53. While it continues in Greece, its subversive activities aimed at the collapse of Turkey, PKK obtains assistance, not only from the Greek public institutions, but also from the politicians and retired army personnel. All this aid is deposited under the bank account of: "ETHNICI TRAPEZA- 129/350681- 92."

The primary figure among those Greeks working voluntarily at PKK's office at Vassilis Sofias number 54 is the retired Navy Admiral Andonis NAKSAKIS who is one of the links between KIP and PKK is NAKSAKIS; PASOK's MP from Crete Kostas BADUVAS is one of his supporters on the Kurdish issue. Yet another person who has been aiding the terrorist organization the most in the last four years is a certain THEODORE, who speaks Turkish, English and Italian. He conducts PKK's correspondence and is present at press declarations and meetings. Because he is the Chairman of the Pontus- Kurdish Solidarity Committee at the same time, he prepares ground for joint acts, meetings, statements and all sorts of other acts with PKK that operates under the guise of ERNK.

Besides two houses of the organization where the PKK members, who come to Athens, for a temporary period, the guest-houses of the Greek official departments also offer accommodation for PKK members. One of the buildings where the PKK members, who undergo training in Athens, are accommodated, is in Dafni, a suburb of Athens. The injured who arrive from Turkey through South Cyprus, cadres to be transferred from Zele to Europe and candidates who have participated in the organization from the Lavrion camp are treated and trained in this building. The residents of the house that is used as a base are never allowed to go out or make telephone calls.

Those staying in this house serve sentries from 23.00 hours to 07.00 in the morning, with one- hour intervals. The cadres under training are prohibited to appear on the windows, balconies and terraces, if not necessary. A TV set, a video-cassette and a type-writer are found in the house.


Greece & Terrorism

The PKK militants who enter into and exit from, this house which is used a PKK training center in Athens, the most are the ones named Faik, Cemal and Sait who work as couriers between Abdullah Ocalan and the Greek officials. The training in Dafni begins first with a speech and a distribution of work. Throughout the training, a worker is appointed for each of the sections of security, logistics, health, kitchen etc. The code-name of the person in charge of this training is "Sabri". A team attached to him, also including Greek officers and intelligence officers, gives its lessons in the hall of this house.

Ten organization members and 25 trainees permanently stay in the house. The Greek neighbors residing in the vicinity of the house speak of it as the "house of the PKK terrorists". Transfers to the house are usually carried out at night time. The house is protected by KIP and the Gendarmerie on a round-the-clock basis. Yet another training of PKK in the Greek capital is a farm-building to the north of Athens. The people living in the neighborhood say that it belongs to KIP.

At this farm-house, training is given on bombs. All the PKK militants who have committed acts of bombing in Turkey and then caught admitted that they were trained in this farm-house. The training program implemented in this camp is as follows:
The historical background of explosives-- Facts to take into consideration in bomb-making-- A broad definition of explosives. Training on the guns: pistols, kalashnikov, Cannas-type pistols. Shooting at fixed or moving targets, techniques of sabotage, assassination and its techniques.

The capacity of this camp may reach up to 50 persons. The camp contains a political HQ, three dormitories, a lecture-room, executive room, kitchen, a room for the Greek trainers, a military HQ, a military depot for arms and ammunition. The camp is surrounded by barbed wire in the form nets and trees. The camp that resembles a farm-house is protected by military police and Gendarmerie patrols and specially trained dogs.


EACH STONE OVERTURNED IN SOUTHEAST ANATOLIA REVEALS GREEK ROLE IN TERRORISM
Photographs and letters found in the possession of the PKK militants who are killed at the operations of the Turkish armed forces in South-eastern Anatolia and in northern Iraq, as well as in their caves reveal, beyond any doubt, the relations between the rulers of Greece and PKK in particular and the Greek-PKK connection in general. One of the photos found had been taken in front of a shop bearing the shop's name in Greek. Behind the photo had was written the name "Vassiliki," an address and a telephone number. Yet another photograph shows three persons toasting to each other in a stall-like wine shop in Athens, who are thought to be the members of a PKK group trained in Athens.
The greatest admirer of Abdullah Ocalan is the Greek parliament speaker Panaiotis SGURIDES (from PASOK). It has been determined that Zgurides met APO in 1994 at Beqaa Valley twice and met APO and his representatives in South Cyprus in 1997 three times, where he went for trivial reasons. The Greek politician paid a visit to APO on 14 June 1995 and honouring him with an award of the Greek parliament "in recognition of his service to Hellenism." That the Greek politician, during the meeting, gave a map to APO, drawn up in Greece, showing the oil pipe lines, asking him to sabotage them was published overtly in the Greek press, together with the map in question.

While the contacts of the Greek parliamentarians from all the political parties with PKK and APO clearly reveals to all, the "Greek-PKK alliance", clearly showing what a liar the Greek Government Spokesman is when trying to deceive the world that "Greece has nothing to do with PKK, Turkey is lying".




THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS (1960-1963)


The Zurich Agreement on 11 February 1959 and London on 19 February 1959, a most significant step was taken for the foundation of the Republic of Cyprus and the Republic was declared on 15-16 August 1960 after the Constitution of Cyprus and Agreements of Guarantee and Alliance were signed. (1)
The Independent Republic of Cyprus was negotiated and accepted at the English Parliament on 21 July. It was approved by the Queen on 29 July. On 15 August, the last English governor of Cyprus Sir Hugh Foot read the statement of independence and declared the Republic of Cyprus (2).

To protect the island, Turkey would send a regiment of 650 Turkish troops and Greece a regiment of 950 Greek troops. In addition, the three states would individually or jointly intervene when the republic was threatened in terms of security of civil totality.

As it is seen, a peculiar administration of republic was established in the island. This republic had two publics that had national characteristics and that were determined to sustain it. The current Constitution could only be activated with the cooperation of both parties that was based on goodwill. However, the Cypriot Greek party and Greece that had obligatorily sat to negotiation tables and signed the agreements saw the Republic of Cyprus as a transition period, given the proceeding of events afterwards. They would not hesitate to act for achieving ENOSIS and establishing the supremacy of Greece. Because of these, the Turkish - Greek partnership for the Republic of Cyprus lasted only three years. The Cypriot Greeks were not sincere with the pact from the very beginning. A significant evidence of this was the declaration of the Greek organization KEM (3)

Insincere Greek underground organizations hurried to act after the decision of the establishment of the Republic. The EDMA (National Democratic Strugglers Front) was established with the participation of significant EOKA leaders. On the other hand, Nikos Sampson established the OPEK (Organization for Protecting Cypriot Greeks) in order to prevent a possible convergence between Turks and Cypriot Greeks (4). The objectives of OPEK were clearly set forth in a declaration distributed in April 1961. The following statements in the declaration attracted attention: "Just as we hit merciless strokes to the treacherous who were sold off to the colonizers during the armed struggle against the colonial administration, we will strike those who dare to serve for the policies of Ankara with the same ruthlessness and severity".

Makarios made a speech at the 5th anniversary of 1 April 1960 when EOKA acts had begun. He praised EOKA and said that this sacred mission had to be continued to the conclusion (5). Again, in a ceremony held on 15 August 1962 in the Kykko monastery to celebrate the second anniversary of the Republic of Turkey, Makarios said: "Cypriot Greeks should keep the EOKA's struggle for independence going and complete the job they had begun. The struggle has now taken a new form and will continue until we achieve our objective."

On 13 March 1963, President Makarios stated "The foundation of the Republic of Cyprus is the result of Zurich and London Agreements and conditions that led to them. The purpose of Cypriot Struggle was not to found a republic. The agreements just laid the foundation" and targeted the agreements upon which the Republic of Cyprus was based and the constitution of the republic.

Later on, disputes on the following issues grew deeper:

1. When the Republic of Cyprus was founded, the ratio of Turkish workers to Greek workers at state institutions were 10 %. However, the Greeks that were decided to prevent the implementation of the Constitution did not allow the realization of the Turkish 30 % to Greek 70 %.
2. Another issue of dispute was the future Turkish municipalities. In fact, Turkish and Greek sections had been definitely separated in big cities as a result of EOKA's terrorist operations. This Article in the Constitution only set the actual situation as a legal provision. However, Makarios prevented the law to be passed for the establishment of Turkish municipalities with the allegation that the legal recognition of Turkish municipalities was a step toward the division of Cyprus.

The Cypriot Greeks applied for the Constitutional Court at one hand and acted to undermine Turkish municipalities on the other. For that reason, they cut off the power of Turkish municipalities on 25 January 1963 and declared that the Turkish municipalities did not have the authority to issue construction permit. On 31 January 1963, the draft law which provided that the moveables and immoveables of the former municipalities would be transferred to the Field Development Commissions was accepted with Greek majority votes despite the opposing votes by Turkish ministers (6).

Makarios gave a statement to the Sunday Express correspondent in Cyprus (7) and said: "Even though a decision is made by the Constitutional Court that our movement is contrary to Constitution, I will not respect that decision" and added that the issue did not interest either UN or guarantor states. This attitude shows that Makarios and would do anything to terminate the Republic of Cyprus that was based on partnership.

On 19 February 1963, Turkish Community Assembly President Rauf Denktaþ and Representatives Council Leader Klerides convened at a long meeting. However, the declaration of Makarios that he would not recognize the Supreme Constitutional Court created significant reaction. The Supreme Constitutional Court was presided by impartial German Prof. Dr. E. Forshoff and had one Greek member and a Turkish. On 24 April 1963, the Constitutional Court decided that the decision made at the Representatives Council on 31 December 1962 was unconstitutional and that the relevant law had to be passed. This decision was a blow for President Makarios who was responsible with implementing the constitution and EOKA members. However, disregarding rights and laws, the Cypriot Greeks threatened Dr. Christian Heinze, secretary of the Supreme Constitutional Court President, evicted him out of Cyprus and forced him to resign. On 21 May 1963, Constitutional Court President German Prof. Ernst Forstoff sent a letter from Heidelberg to Makarios, which read: "Your Excellency, the conditions I was informed after I returned to Germany force me to resign from Constitutional Court Presidency. When I returned to Germany, I learned that my secretary Dr. Heinze had been pursued everywhere by detectives for weeks. I was shocked when I learned about the slanders that Turks bribed him and that it was proved by documents. I want to tell his Excellency that I have resigned from now on to be valid from 15 July 1963 in order to ensure operability of the Constitutional Court". His assistant resigned, too (8).

Apart from the resignation of the impartial president of the Constitutional Court in this manner, the statement of Makarios which previously declared that he would not recognize the decision to be give by the Constitutional Court President obviously revealed the illegitimate attitude of Makarios and Greek administration. Meanwhile, Turkey closely followed President Archbishop Makarios's unconstitutional behaviors and attitudes and made definite warnings to him during his visit to Ankara (9).

Makarios who did not want to apply the Constitution of the Republic of Turkey recommended the termination of the rights given to Turks in the Constitution first and then cancellation of guaranty and alliance agreements. To make this accepted, he chose the time when the government in Turkey was in a crisis, Karamanlis lost the rule and Papandreu who did not recognize the London and Zurich Agreements became the Prime Minister.

The "amendment" proposal of 13 articles which Archbishop Makarios submitted to Turkey on 30 November 1963 was rejected by Cypriot Turks immediately and by Turkey on 6 December 1963. England and Greece that supported the Archbishop did not react. The English High Commissar of English to Cyprus helped Makarios prepare the amendment proposal.

The 13 Constitutional articles Makarios wanted to be amended reduced Cypriot Turks to "minority status" (10).

Makarios prepared the constitutional amendment proposal bewaring that Turkey would reject it. So, he put his plans into effect to annihilate Turks and get Cyprus. EOKA that had 20.000 members and had been established to achieve this goal was equipped with modern weaponry and prepared for action.

The Greeks wanted digress the fact that the acts were initiated by themselves. Therefore, they bombed the statue of EOKA member Markos Drakos that was erected around the Baf portal in Nicosia. Immediately after the event came EOKA's statement. It was claimed that the bomb was placed by Turks. The "plan to annihilate Turks" was in effect. The Republic of Cyprus was devastated and the Makarios - EOKA dictatorship took over.

CYPRUS PEACE OPERATION (20 JULY 1974)


Turkish government reacted severely to coup against Makarios. The fact that an authority like Makarios declared Turks were threatened with annihilation in the UN Security Commission set Turkey, one of the guarantor states, on the move. The Board of Ministers convened on 15 July 1974 and gave Prime Minister Bülent Ecevit full authority to take any sort of measure regarding the interests and security of the country.
Meanwhile, clashes continued in Cyprus. The coupists declared martial law in the whole island and soon captured Nicosia and Girne. Nikos Sampson announced that a "Hellenistic Republic" was founded in Cyprus and thereby took a considerable step toward the path to "enosis". Makarios who was flown from the island by England stated that Cyprus was invaded by Greece.

Concerned about the developments, Turkey contacted England, USA and USSR and communicated its reaction. On the other hand, Turkish Grand National Assembly convened out of ordinary upon the summons of President Fahri Korutürk 17 July 1974. Prime Minister went to London the same day and tried to convince the English government for joint intervention but failed to do so. It also submitted a motion at BM level to condemn USSR and Greece, which was vetoed by the USA.

Nevertheless, USA assigned Vice Secretary of State Joseph Sisco to carry out talks in London, Ankara and Athens to solve the dispute in peaceful terms. Prime Minister Bülent Ecevit met Sisco on 18 July and through him gave Greece a ultimatum that included Turkey's requests. The ultimatum demanded that Nikos Sampson quit Cyprus Presidency, 650 Greek officers in the Cyprus National Guardsmen Organization withdraw and a sound warranty be issued for the independence of the island. The junta in Greece was convinced that Turks would not be able to use force due to America's pressure and thus rejected these demands.

Because all these attempts proved inconclusive, Turkey unilaterally started the Cyprus Peace Operation vis-a-vis Article 4 of the Guaranty Agreement. Turkish troops disembarked on the island from Girne and a small bridge was taken between Girne and Nicosia. The National Guardsmen Army and EOKA-B could not struggle with Turkish troops, but went into a huge massacre by attacking Turkish settlements. Hundreds of Cypriots were slaughtered. Women were raped, kids were slain on the streets and villages were burned down. Turkish forces captured Girne on 22 July. On 22 July evening, Turkey accepted the armistice decision of the UN Security Council. As a result of Turkish intervention, the junta administration in Greece and its Cypriot puppet Nikos Sampson Government collapsed.

After the armistice decision, Foreign Ministers of Turkey, Greece and England set for the 1st Geneva Conference on 25 July 1974. The conference ended on 30 July and the following decisions were accepted and declared: "A security zone will be established in the island; Turkish regions invaded by Greeks and Cypriot Greeks shall be evacuated immediately, military and civilian captives shall be exchanged, a constitutional government shall be established when peace in ensured, there exist two autonomous administrations in the Republic of Cyprus, namely the Cypriot Turkish community and the Cypriot Greek community".

With this agreement, it was hoped that the attacks by the National Guardsmen and EOKA-B on the Cypriot Turkish community would end. However, the National Guardsmen and EOKA-B did not evacuate the regions they had infested and they did not release the captives when the 2nd Geneva Conference was proceeding on 8 August. During the second conference, Turks evacuated certain villages around Larnaka to show their "goodwill", but Greek-Cypriot Greek forces continued attacking Turkish forces.

In addition, at the 2nd Conference proceeding in Geneva, Cypriot Greek and Greek delegates denied the issues that the Greek Foreign Minister had consented to at the 1st Conference. Greeks - Cypriot Greeks brought unacceptable recommendations during the talks to drag the issue. They tried to involve certain states, whether related or not, to gain time through table games and planned to prepare forces in Greece and send them to the island. Turkey saw that it was impossible to agree with Greeks - Cypriot Greeks and decided to complete the campaign that had been started on 22 July. The operation began on 14 August and ended on 16 August. Turkish forces reached Magosa at one end, Lefke on the other and thereby determined the Turkish borders.

A special committee was established by the English Parliament to examine the Cyprus Turkish Peace Operation. The report it submitted in 1976 read: "The places that the Turkish forces reached during the 1st Peace Campaign was not sufficient to defend, therefore, the 2nd Peace Operation was inevitable". In addition, Lord Neval said "Had not the Turkish intervention taken place in 1974, there would have remained no Turks on the island". The Murataða, Atlýlar and Sandallar massacres that were revealed after the Peace Operation is evident of the fact that it was a very appropriate decision.

The Cyprus Peace Operation brought the ongoing Greek torture to an end, ensured an environment in which Turks would live comfortably and the yearning for freedom came true as a result of Turkey's appropriate intervention. Although Greeks - Cypriot Greeks spread the propaganda that Cyprus had been invaded by Turkey, Athens Supreme Decision made a decision on 21 March 1979 and confirmed that the Turkish intervention was legal as per Article 4 of the Guaranty Agreement.


TURKISH REPUBLIC OF NORTHERN CYPRUS (KKTC)


After the UN decision dated 13 May 1983 to terminate "Cyprus Turkish Federated State", the Cypriot Turkish community gave a memorandum to President Rauf Denktaþ on 20 May 1983 and demanded the declaration of independence. Cyprus Turkish Federated State Assembly saw that the talks with Cypriot Greeks and Greeks would continue to be fruitless and unanimously proclaimed the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus on 17 November 1983. The "Independence Statement" was announced by Rauf Denktaþ. The united Nations Security Council held a meeting on 17 November 1983 and made the decision No. 541 that "the declaration of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" was unnecessary and requested the Turkish side to abandon the decision. With this decision, the UN Security Council opposed its own laws that "All peoples have the right to self-determination in case they can freely decided for their political status and follow economic, social and cultural developments". This biased decision of the UN Security Council was rejected by Turkey and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. The government of the Republic of Turkey officially recognized the Republic of Northern Cyprus. 0n 17 April 1984, ambassadors reciprocally submitted letters of confidence to the Presidents.
The Constitution prepared by the KKTC Constitutional Assembly was approved 0n 12 March 1985 in the Assembly and put into effect after taking 70 % of the votes of Cypriot Turks in public voting on 5 May 1985. In the elections that 4 candidates participated on 9 June 1985, Rauf Denktaþ got 70.48 % of Turkish votes on the island and became the first president of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
