Along the borders of Turkey 4/4 - The Last Wall: Cyprus

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.

Wow this video has extreme Turkish hate. Turkish people are amazing people! Why do you Europeans hate the Turks so much! Just let the Turks be! They are wonderful! Seriously! The Greeks first killed the Turks in Cyprus and the Turkish military intervened and sent soldiers to protect the Turkish Cypriots
He is He is looking at me 😂🇹🇷
Deleted scenes after 8:50. After that scene, Turkish commander calls and BM forces officer gives their apology.

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.

How many turks you killed please calculate that also not 1 way street least he talks like man not a bs as typical greek
Turks are always the most merciful and strongest. 🇹🇷🇹🇷

Reason is megali idea and massacres done by greeks. Greeks should pray to their many gods that Turks' megali idea "Turan" is nothing to do with Greek territories.

Before the 1974, Some Greek people provoked the own people against the Turks who are they neighborhood, brothers, sisters etc. And They killed so many innocent Turks. Absolutely Some Greeks did not want to do this because we are all human, but war happened. Then Turkey sent Turkish troops for peace. So island like that today. Love From 🇹🇷 who support peace between the people

1571de adayı korsanlardan kurtardık 2.Abdülhamit zamaninda birlesik krallığa kiraya verdik üs kurdular tabi buna zorunlu kalarak yaptık zira Rus İmparatorluğu zorladı bizi ve 1. Dunya savasinda Birlesik Krallik işgal etti adayı ardindan bizim monarşimiz çöktü lâkin adada ve hatta akdeniz adalarında Türk varlığı yoğundu Cumhuriyeti kurduk başımızda türlü bela vardı ve adalarda sistemli katliamlar başladı ve yine bizim olanı savunmak için adaya girdik çünkü giritte olan katliami unutmadık ve bu zamana kadar geçen sürede hep adaya hakim kaldık şimdi bize işgalci diyenler rica ederim bir tarih okuyun ve yanlı okumayın adaya ömründe hakim olmayan tek millet rumlar ve yunanlardir

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 .

Will be there any other series about Turkey ?

I swear the most of Turks do not have any problems with Greeks. We actually love Greek culture, music, language and people. We even had/have famous Greek musicians in Turkey. If a Greek comes to Turkey, he/she will never have a problem because of his/her identity.No problem even with Graywolves(Nationalists). It's very sad to see that these 2 lovely nations hate each other officially because of the governments. I have a bad news for those who want peace in Cyprus. There will never be peace until there is no natural gas left in east med.sea.
hasan karl
Hey journalist! Did you ever go to the museum of barbarism in Nicosia? Go and write down the truth... ... and there is a picture of the Turkish Prime Minister of that period in the house of many Greek Cypriots. Because he brought peace. (1974)
Wild Man
that was a very amazing documentary, the people from Cyprus made the end of the subject: " Cyprus is for Cypriots. Both Turkish and Greek government made this ". politics have always been a reason for hate, seperation and sadness. Wish everyone understand that politicians have always killed us.
umut ergul
I settled in UK, but born and raised in Turkey. I believe your work was not biased at all, as I found it quite objective and well-organised. Thanks for sharing it Bram. The reason that some of us might be understandably prejudiced about a similar type of documentaries is that those docs were predominantly focusing on the matter from one side. One side has been blamed for the divided island. Unfortunately, these docs produced without referring to the situation before 1974, including the very recent Simon Revees doc by BBC. The intervention was not decided in one day. It was interesting to see in your documentary that you also mentioned the voting of 2004 as an opportunity to be united. Also from your documentary, I learned local Cypriots' opinion/concerns about the voting and thanks for bringing us their views from both sides.

Is there somebody who is interested to translate this documentary so that we could provide Turkish and Greek subtitles and Metadata? Would be cool! :)

I watched this documentary as a Turkish journalist. I really like... It describes both historical pain and real political realities. If you plan a new documentary in Turkey, I can help. Congratulations.

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...
Triumph Tiger
Such a shame, I am Greek Cypriot born in 1974 now living in England since 1979. I feel for both Cypriot community’s, the innocent are the sufferers.cyprus belongs to Cypriots, turkey should leave and allow both communities to heal.
It's funny don't point the binoculars towards the Turks lol

Turks are practical people, they only know what they need to know, Greeks are so proud they would rather have nothing than betray their principles

hahah "where r the Turks?" The Turks are everywhere.
Carl Pilkington
Translations are wrong between 3:04-3:18. It is translated as if he is talking about “Greeks not tolerating Turks” yet he is actually talking about “Turkish Cypriots not tolerating Turkish mainlanders”. For example: In 3:16 he’s translated as “They(the Greeks) don’t like Turks” But actual translation is: “They(Turkish Cypriots) don’t like people coming from Turkey”

talk about the defenseless innocent Turks that the Greeks have massacred

Kutay Celenk
why do we not see a single word about the terrorist called Makarios and his crazy enosis themed killings in this entire video?! If some troops came to these lands from some another country, its all because the terrorist organization called EOKA. Thankfully Turkish army did not let another Srebrenica happen in those lands, and you must put the blame on European nations and USA for watching the whole events with popcorn and do nothing. EU and especially USA are responsible for redefining the word "massacre" during the 70's. We all witness how terrorist organizations are nourished by religions.
Hypocritical "documentation"
44:48 bunun derdi ne
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 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!!!!!

Who cares who got what in the past just leave the past in the past and leave in peace
Wow i am very thankful for that video. Very intresting to see the opinions , feelings and emotions of the greek and turkish cypriots. Im one of million turks living in Germany. And i know that many people here dont even know that Cyprus is divided. They just know cyprus the small island and eu member nothing more. Your docu needs to be shown to the whole EU . They need to find a Solution. It wont be easy yes because i know how we turks are , we are not like the europeans who had the bloodiest war in human history (ww2) and now they are like bestfriends. Turks are unforgiving. But they have to forgive and also apologize for a better life for the turkish cypriots.
EJ Cash
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.

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.

47:35. Totally biased. The Annan Plan did not had all things the journalist say, and that's why it was rejected. Shame to the journalist and the channel!
This violet dressed women is such a drama quenn... Not only she lost his relavites. There was a war... Both side lost a lot of things. A lot. Crying and play the Drama victim in front the camera seem not truthful... I am not telling this side was right or something like that. Horrible things happen in the past. Now its future. Must talk about peace.
