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.

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.

7:49 Turks are watching you all 7/24 ehuehu
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 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.

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...
He is He is looking at me 😂🇹🇷

talk about the defenseless innocent Turks that the Greeks have massacred

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!!!!!

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

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.

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.

Will be there any other series about Turkey ?

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.
7:49 explains all..
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 .
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”
Sammy.K TV
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

Turks demand equal the same time they suppressing all minorities in Turkey.Go ask Kurds,Armenians and many others who live in Turkey as 2nd class citizens.Where are the 250000 Greeks of Constantinople ?Turks still live peacefully in Thrace/Greece.
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.
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!!
Please add Turkish subtitles.

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.

Putting the turks flag on the hill is a insult to us Greeks !!that's why I don't like turks
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...
V. Athanasiou
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 man is very pro turkish.

There is no Greek Cypriots or Turkish Cypriots. There are only Cypriots. Christians and muslims. This separation to Greeks and Turks was done by British to decimate the Cypriots so that they could manage them (they try to cultivate hatred between us to break EOKA A). That it was a common political move by Britain during the period of colonialism. EOKA A has always acted against English colonialists and never against Cypriots. Some, however, ignored the orders of General Griva and were acting against Muslims. These acts are not acts of the organization which was against any action against Muslims. We must also mention the fact that some of these events were not extreme nationalisms but personal differences that misinterpreted some as anti-Muslim. Similar actions were also made by Muslims against Christians in a smaller scale. The British decided to leave Cyprus independent, since the only clear solution for union was to divide the island. One piece will make union with Greece and the other with Turkey. So it happened. After the Christians tried to make a union with Greece, the Turks had the green light from the English to implement the final partition between Christians and Muslims. The Turks never loved the Muslim Cypriots. But they loved the bases they would get on the island and would share them with NATO. The island would be totally anti-communist and pro-American. That's why the Americans helped in the invasion. In 1963-64 the newborn abhorrence reached the zenith, since now the Turks through TMT cultivated for good the hatred among the Cypriots. For example, the case "the bath of Omorfita", where a Turkish officer of GKK (TOYRDYK) had gone crazy and killed his three children and his wife. The Turks accused the Christians causing total destruction on Cyprus. If you read the history of our country from WW2 until 1974 you will understand that : The Greeks (Xounta + EOKA B) made that shit and then Turks came and feed those to us. The victims are all the Cypriots that have lost their homes and their relatives. As long as the Turks and Greeks intervene in the talks, there will never be a solution.

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.

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.

Let’s make it clear, Cypriots are neither Turks neither Greeks. We’re Cypriots. I find it wrong that there are Turks from turkey saying they are Cypriot. I am from the republic of Cyprus, I like the Turkish Cypriots, but I hate the Turks. They are the bad people. Cyprus should be left alone only to the Cypriots, those who’s ancestors were from here. NOT immigrants from turkey. The country of turkey does not care about the Turkish Cypriots, because they view them as Cypriots and therefore different. I believe Cyprus should be a nation only of Cypriots and not Turks
Κωνσταντίνος Χρυσοστόμου
There’s obviously more people in the south side. Because we have been inhabiting this island thousands and thousands of years before you
Κωνσταντίνος Χρυσοστόμου
The Turks obviously don’t care if they kill innocent lives. They like killing people, especially when it’s for land expansion and personal profit. The thing the Turks love the most though is propaganda and fake news, they’re masters at that. They’re masters at being heartless as well.
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.
