Cyprus? Really, Israel? What's the matter, screwing things up in Palestine/Lebanon/Syria not enough anymore?

see what I mean ?
Btw, there is no Turkophobia here.
It's in your bones , in your core being . Without the hatred of Turk I suspect your world would make less sense to even you .
People are simply discussing ongoing developments.
you seem to discuss a big bad Turk with a theatrical twist added to it .
I'm sorry if the discussion is not very flattering of Turkey. Don't get upset with anyone here, get upset with your Islamist government.
Greeks don't flatter Turks on anything , anywhere .
Please pull the other one !!!
Sure, Turkey will get it's fare share of resources from the Mediterranean.
Whatever resources are located within Turkish territorial waters, belong to Turkey.
Whatever resources are located within Greek, or Cypriot, or Israeli territorial waters, belong to those respective countries.
This is the problem with your country.
It has the mentality of what's mine is mine, and whats yours should be mine too.
Well sorry, but things do not work that way. We are not in a primary school play ground with the teacher on duty not looking.
If Turks get their fair share , there won't be a problem .
Can you dispute anything I've said? Of course you cant, because you know that everything I have said is a fact.
And anyone reading can also do a bit of research using Google, and see that what I am saying is 100% truthful and factual as well.
I would advice you to include the Turks view of how things are . Instead you are caricaturising the big bad Turk .Everything you have stated is disputable and is being disputed as we speak . Better get off that high horse of yours and find out why Turks disputes what you are claiming to be yours .
Therefore, rather then discuss the subject at hand, you decide to start playing the racist card. Turkophobia this Turkophobia that.
Are you telling me that you don't hate the big bad Turk that always comes around and destroy some Hellenistic dream ?
Please , perhaps you don't get it but your bias is actually showing .
I'm sorry that I hurt your feelings, but there is no racism or Turkophobia. Just a discussion on ongoing developments.
You have not hurt my feelings but reassured me of what I already know ; " Greeks and Cypriots like to think that all the problems they have comes from the existence of Turks" .
I wish this was not the case but there you have it .
If you want to participate with a valid contribution without your Turkish nationalistic propaganda and nonsense which belongs in certain other forums like waff, then by all means go ahead and surprise everyone with a valid, on topic contribution.

No the Israeli planes were in Cyprus air space that is recognized to be owned by Cyprus and Greece. The Turkish claim is not recognized by anyone.
I strongly doubt the Turks were able to chase off any Israeli fighters in an airspace that is internationally recognized to be NOT Turkish.
The Greeks and the Turks play mock dogfights all the time over Cyprus. The Israelis wont be pushed around by anyone. This is just normal Arab propaganda. 20 says the Israelis were traveling home anyway and some Turks were in the area to make this ridiculous claim.
