Türkler çılgın değil

Abstract

Yavuz [M. Kazım Bedevi] criticizes the Greek-Cypriot Press for the reports and publications against Turkish Cypriots that accuse them of violence and terrorism. He claims that the events in Vasilia, Larnaca and Aphania, which were previously-planned and supported by Greek Cypriots from neighbouring villages, are not mentioned in the Greek-Cypriot press. For Yavuz, neither the leaders of the Greek Cypriot community, nor the Greek-Cypriot press, condemn the murders. On the contrary, they declare the killers heroes and agitate the Greek Cypriot community against the Turkish Cypriots. As for the Turkish Cypriots, he says that they have the right to protest for their martrys, but the children who run riots are not approved by the community. Moreover, for the author, Fazıl Küçük, the leader of the Kıbrıs Türktür Partisi (Cyprus is Turkish Party), is warning the Turkish Cypriot community with his speeches and articles in order to alleviate the tension between the two communities.
