Everytown For Gun Safety
“Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.”

Biggest mistake the turks done was allowing the orthodox to continue in cyprus after winning the island in 1570+. The second mistake was not getting rid of eoka and enosis completely from the island in 1974. Of course uk , usa and europe being turk haters as usual ,refusing to read into past history . 500 years on and here we are ignorant stupid people questining Turkeys so called illegal occupation of north cyprus. Turkeys the legal owner of cyprus from 1570 and not 1974. In theory they should be owners of whole island and not some 20 -30 % .

🇵🇰 Pakistan stands with Turkey🇹🇷 & Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. In fact Pakistan had recognized TRNC before but withdrew it's recognition after UN resolution 541 and Pakistan was the only UNSC member which voted against this resolution. Turkish Cypriots deserve a country of their own or annexation by Turkish Republic.

Comments are full of ''Invading barbaric Turks'' again... Cyprus is divided because of the bullying Greeks had done to Turks who were living there before the division, please remember that before react.
Greek Cypriots were torturing Turkish Cypriots before the war. So Turkey Republic helped them for get them out their suffer. There is no bad thing on that, remember the France, British invasions to AFRICA if you want to blame someone.
Cyprus ( Kypros / Κύπρος ) from kyein (κυείν) + proorizo (προορίζω). = Greek for "Destines birth".
The names "Cyprus" and "Cypriot" describe the ability of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite. One of the main deities of the Greek Pantheon. Her religion was created on the island by Cypriots. The city of Pafos is considered her birthplace. Ancient Greek Cypriots were also calling the Goddess, "Anassa", which means "queen" in ancient Greek.
Homer in his poems Iliad and Odyssey calls Aphrodite, Cypriot. The poems before Iliad and Odyssey are called "Cypriot Poems" and describe the facts that took place before the Trojan war, when Aphrodite offered that magical fruit to Paris in order to seduce Helena. The Cypriot Poems were probably written by Homer or by his son-in-law Stasinos, a Greek Cypriot poet.
Moreover all the cities of Cyprus were founded by ancient Greeks according to ancient historians and this was proven by modern archaeologists from Sweden and Britain nowadays.
Turks first arrived in Cyprus in the 1570's CE when they invaded brutally with the Ottoman Empire in cities that never belonged to the Turkish culture.
Cyprus is a huge part of the Hellenic civilisation!
it was subsequently occupied by several major powers, including the empires of the Assyrians, Egyptians and Persians, from whom the island was seized in 333 BC by Alexander the Great. Subsequent rule by Ptolemaic Egypt, the Classical and Eastern Roman Empire, Arab caliphates for a short period, the French Lusignan dynasty and the Venetians, was followed by over three centuries of Ottoman rule between 1571 and 1878 (de jure until 1914). It's not only Greek.
Love and respect to all my Greek friends and brothers, life is too short to hate, we have more in common than our differences. Cyprus should be united, with Turks and Greeks living side by side in peace. Love from Turkey.
As a Turk i can say the turkish invasion right because of the some radical nationalist greek attacks. But anyway, the island should belong it it's own people and both of turkey and greece should leave them alone. We made a true decision by protecting our people but it should not take so long time to reunite the island and recreate the peace
The geneticists proved that the cypriots are one race as whole. there is nothing as greek cypriot or turkish cypriot. Those people have always been dominated by the powerful empires invaded this strategically important island through the ages. They were hellenized during the byzantium time and then one part of the island turkified during the ottoman era. And then they fighted. So stupid.
the right wing fought with the right wing and they blamed the left wing and used them as scape goats so coup happened they after declared their self heroes because if they faced reality they had to commit suicide turkish invasion actually saved the leftists from executions we are all animals after all and survival instinct is always first before justice cyprus is not greek or turkish just because greeks educated us like they did with the rest of the world means nothing
Turkey invaded Cyprus in 1974 and now is occupying half of its territory and people are still debating about who is to blame.Never before a country has killed so many innocent violating all legal rules and yet introduces themselves as peacekeepers...never before the world community has behaved so leniently to invaders and in fact encourages them to continue their military missions.
Greece: CYPRUS IS GREEK HELLAS
Turkey: uhm no sweetie Cyprus is Cyprus.
Greece: stages a coup, replaces the president with a pro right Greek Greece loving president. Who have killed 12 people in Nicosia.
5 days later
Turkey: nah fam this was not the deal. It aint gonna work out like that. *sends troops and saves Turkish Cypriots of Junta’s and Greek nationalist and other Greek influence.
lmao yall asking for it honesthly.
Greetings from the US.
Politically yes. But culturally Cyprus is a Greek island with long and rich ancient Greek culture. We speak Greek for thousands of years and it should be respected as in other countries!
Καλως όρισες στο νησί της Αφροδίτης Μαρία μου! O Πολιτισμός μας είναι ότι πιο σημαντικό έχουμε. Μην τον διαφθείρεις ! Χωρίς τον Πολιτισμό της η Κύπρος είναι απλά μια ανωνυμη έρημος. Απλά χώμα...
As a Turk I hate 95% of the Ottoman history. Historically, not only Cyprus but also Turkey doesn't belong to Turks at all and we can't forever assume that we've never killed people and made invasions, and everyone tried to invade us.
Iridanos I have never agreed more, I personally am against what we're doing to Cyprus. The fact that both the countries are doing nothing but convincing citizens to be enemies instead of fixing affairs is the worst part to me.
It's not only Ottomans. The politicians you have now are not so different. They are still threatening us both Cyprus and mainland Greece for absolutely no reason. And it's freaking annoying. It destroys our souls and creates more and more anger.
We could make our countries so much better if we stop this stupidity and respect each others rights and cultures.
That video is completely one sided. You are telling that Turkish army invaded northern cyprus but didnt say why. Because Greeks started to kill Turkish Cypriots to take whole island. Turkish army joined the war to save its brothers. If you are stupid enough to think we should not join, you better go kys. In comments Greeks tells to much bravery quotes but they could not have enough courage to join the war against Turkey. You cant even work for country to make it out of crysis so you can fight? Do not make me laugh, Ancient Greeks may be a great warriors but nowadays are just trashes.
my grandfather fought for turkey in the air force and left the operation as a veteran. when he later arrived home he told that "no other creature can harm its own kind worse than men." may he rest in peace...
We both identify as Cypriots, but it doesn’t mean that both sides are necessarily majority Cypriots (eg northern Cyprus , majority turks , minority Turkish Cypriots) (Cyprus side : majority Cypriots minority: maronites, Armenians )
Cyprus is Greek. Turks can do only genocides. That's it. All their history consists of genocides and wars. Western Turkey belongs to Greece, Eastern Turkey belonges to Armenia! And there are also some territories for kurds and assyrians. We all have to unit against the Mongoloturks!
+Thanasis Sideris Stop lying. We know exactly how the story ended. We know exactly who the real killers are. We know exactly how the greeks made a bloody massacre in 1963. We know exactly what happened in bloody christmas. We know exactly how EOKA and Nikol Samspon murdered children. There are photos. There are evidences. Children and women were murdered and your murderers celebrated the day as victorious. You are hypocrites, you are child murderer. We have never killed women and children. For 400 years greece was under Ottoman empire regime. We could easily delete your language from the world. If we wanted today nobody could speak Greek. Have we destroyed your culture, religion, tradition, history? Not us but you are the murderers. If you have a bit of humanity in you then look at the real facts about what the EOKA did in cyprus.
+Hayatadissat34 Turks started killing actually first in 1915 then in 1922 and again in 1955 and 1963-64 as for the turks in cypriots only those who tried guerillas attacks like in Smyrna in 1922 would die not innocent civillians like the 4000 women and children you killed during the invasion.
