    The Turks invaded Cyprus on July 20, 1974. By the end of August, Turkish troops occupied 37% of the island. The invasion led to the expulsion of 180,000 Greek Cypriots from the north and led to the death of at least 1,600 Greek Cypriots. Since the invasion, 120,000 Turks have been transported to Cyprus from Anatolia, in violation of the Geneva Convention and hence a war crime, to occupy the homes of the Greek Cypriot refugees. UN Resolution 1987/19 (1987) of the "Sub-Commission On Prevention Of Discrimination And Protection Of Minorities" demands "the full restoration of all human rights to the whole population of Cyprus, including the freedom of movement, the freedom of settlement and the right to property" and also expresses "its concern also at the policy and practice of the implantation of settlers in the occupied territories of Cyprus which constitute a form of colonialism and attempt to change illegally the demographic structure of Cyprus".

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
