    So the Turks think that it is only 1% of the Kurdish people that are negative towards them. Try 99.9% of Armenians; 90% of Greeks; 90% of Bulgarians; 80% of Germans and French. Shall I go on? The problem with the Turks is that they keep taking the high ground and throwing stones at others when they themselves are living in a glass house. Remember this - if you behave like a hypocrite, you will be treated like one. Oh, by the way, if you all think that the majority of Kurds want to be occupied by you, how about holding a referendum and seeing what the result might be. Or better still, hold a referendum and see of the Cypriots want to be occupied, both Greek and Turkish. Believe me, you Turks have much more serious problems on your plate than worrying about the employment situation in Gaza.
