Episode 4 - The Last Wall: Cyprus How can that be that the inhabitants of an island in the Mediterranean sea fear each other so much that they are separated from each other by the last wall of Europe, for 38 years already. What is wrong in Cyprus? Bram Vermeulen travels Along the borders of Turkey. With the Europe collapsing on one hand and shattering regimes in the Arab world on the other hand, the Turkish influence in these regions will grow. Here the new power relations around the Mediterranean are being drawn. In this exploration conducted by Bram Vermeulen, we learn as much about the Turks as we do about ourselves. The boundaries make the countries and not the other way around. Borders define the country: this is where our domain ends and the domain of others begins. Turkey is a border country. A country that defines itself as cramping from its contrast with its neighbors. Turkey is non-Greek, non-Russian, non-Arabic. Turkey is the twilight zone between the Middle East and Europe. Bram Vermeulen travels in four episodes Along the borders of Turkey. Here the new power relations around the Mediterranean are being drawn. Big developments with huge consequences for the people living there. Vermeulen enters the twilight zones: Greece, Cyprus, Syria and Iraq, looking for the actual dividing lines between these neighboring countries. © VPRO October 2012 This channel offers some of the best travel series from the Dutch broadcaster VPRO.

Listen from 15:30 - 17:00. The reason this escalated so much is because of the Junta Greek government which started this. Massacred both Greeks trying to stop this and any Turk. If it wasn't for UN obligation Cyprus would fall under 1 hour and the Turks will capture everything but no one would want that especially the Western Imperialism...

The only thing the Turks want is equal rights but the Greek Cypriots dont agree thats why they rejected the Annan plan whilst the Turks had agreed to it ! Greek Cypriots dont agree on equal rights they want to be the only ruling people on the Island.

I agree with the old fellow at 50:54. Cyprus is for Cypriots period. Trust will only come when these two factions take over their country back without foreign intervention. Turkish Cypriots are just pawns of this Political Game.

One of the best Documentaries on Cyprus I have seen. The Old turkish guy at 45:00 mins made me smile - " we send the Turks to the Turkish cafe - Only Cypriots here " Showes that no side wins in the face of war & devision... may a solution be sort as both sides have suffered alot .

Turks could have taken the whole island but the Greeks still feel superior you can go to Greek island of Kostellerizo it exist without any fear frm Turks and its very very close to Turkish mainland.

Turkish nationalism was the problem in Cyprus and still is - Cyprus was always 90% Greek majority, therefore there is no reason for Turks to believe that it belongs to them!!

Gençler Siz bu palavralara inanmayın. 1968 yılında Lefkoşa de, Türk Alayının Askeri Doktorun karısını ve çocuklarını banyoda küvet içinde öldürdüler. 1974 senesinde Faşist Eoka b Faşist Grivas ve Nikos Sampson askerleri, Türk Akıncılar ve diğer köylerde yüzlerce Kıbrıslı Türkleri infaz edip gömdüler. Müzelere giderseniz bunları görebilirsiniz. Bizler sizlerle beraber adaya yumruğumuzu vurunca, hepimiz insanız, fark yok, demokrasi diyorlar. Siz güçsüz olursanız, Bosna da olduğu gibi size soykırım yaparlar. Bu nedenle konuşun anlaşın ama asla arkanızı bunlara dönmeyin. Sevgiler, Selamlar olsun size KKTC halkları.

I am an Australian born Turkish citizen i think the video was done quite well but it could be better, i think the reporter tried to remain as unbiased as he could, however i have a few questions? why did he call it an invasion in 1974 when it was clearly and legally sanctioned by UN ,INTERVENTION, if Turkey had not have intervened would there be a Turkish Cypriot population? i was last in Cyprus in 2004 The Greek side had already been accepted as tempory members of the EU pending a yes vote to the Anan Plan referendum, when the referendum came late 2004 the Greeks voted no but the EU did not punish them it still accepted them a a full member , then the fact that after 40 years NRTC is still not recognised and the people who were the intended victims still live under embargo all this say to me is Europe doesnt want Turks in Cyprus and shame on all those countries who believe that it is fair not to recognise a state just because its inhabitants are Turkish Muslims, now ask yourselves why there is such a people called Turkish Cypriots? Turks have inhabited the island in unison with the Greeks for over 330 years! and we didnt invade the greeks and conquer them to be there!!!! The Sultan was begged by the greek archbishop of st hilarion to conquer the island from it barbaric venetion warlords, and the Turks did and they free'd the greek population funded the repair of their churches and eventually the title of caretaker of both the peoples of the island was given to the Archbishop of the greek church by the Sultan. Turks trusted the Greeks but now its the Greeks who say they cant trust the Turks, very askew point of veiw if you ask me!!!!!

What started it all? Bloody Christmas, Greeks started persecuting Cypriot-Turks because Greeks had been expelled from Istanbul around that time frame. "Overall, 364 Turkish Cypriots and 174 Greek Cypriots were killed in the 1963-64 conflict.[17] 25,000 Turkish Cypriots from 104 different villages abandoned their homes. " "Most of the property abandoned by Turkish Cypriots was ransacked, damaged, burned or destroyed by Greek Cypriots. A 1964 UN report that used aerial photographs determined that at least 964 Turkish Cypriot homes had been destroyed and that 2,000 Turkish Cypriot homes had suffered severe damage and ransacking" And the conflict started. This all happened before any Turkish soldier set foot on Cyprus.

People complaining about illegal invasions....Turkish-cypriots were violently attacked and encouraged by pro-Greek government long before any Turk set foot on the island, no one did anything about it, the whole world watched it. So Turkey went in. Deal with it...Turkish invasion of Cyprus is as "wrong" as the pro-greek facist rule which started all this. People defending this are probably Golden Dawn extremists. If you're going to comment on the matter for gods sake take 5 minutes on your life to read the other side of the coin. War is uggly and not black and white. I want to see you being angry and crying as much for the Iraqi invasion America did. If you truly are a defender of the innocent go and convince americans Iraq was a wrong decision.1.2 million violent deaths for that cause.

Armenians,Assyrians,Greeks,and now Kurds....Turkish state is a genocidal state...PERIOD.-.....The Turkish Cypriots are the victims of that Turkish state as well...

UN Secretary Annan prepared a plan to make cyprus united again. guess which side of cyprus signed (turks), which side reject that plan (greeks). it shows which side wants peace which side not. thats all.
