Someone from the island of Cyprus, who can trace their ties back to the island before the 1950s.
Ok people, a lot of Turk bashing and Greek bashing.
Let me set this straight:
1. Around the 1920s there were both TurkCs and GreekCs on the island who had migrated there from their respective empires.
2. Before the troubles (just before 1974) it was relatively peaceful island. GreekCs lived with TurkCs. TurkCs lived with GreekCs.
3. Around 1974, the troubles hit peak and patriots from both sides started to turn on their neighbours by rounding them up and shooting them. Village by village.
4. Since the GreekCs were the majority in this case, the TurkCs had more to lose.
5. Turkey eventually invaded the island in order to protect "its people" and declared North Cyprus a state of Turkey under its protection.
6. Patriotism rose on both sides because of this decision, and an influx of Turks were imported into the island to keep TurkC numbers "strong."
As a result you get four types of people on the island:
Turkish Cypriots, Greek Cypriots, Mainland Turks, English.
As a Turkish Cypriot living in England, I hate the following groups for the following reasons;
Greek Cypriots - For treating Turkish Cypriots like 2nd class citizens in their own country, and spouting your incredibly 1-sided propaganda to the rest of the world. You guys are complete sobs, and wouldn't even give me directions to the border even though you were living around the corner from it. The saddest part is that you guys actually believe your own bullshit.
Mainland Turks - For invading the island and acting like general wastes of space as you spout your own miliyetci propaganda. Shut up and stop bleating the national pride like its a religion. Seriously, these idiots actually weekly worship the statue of the decapitated head of Ataturk, a man who tried to westernise Turkey and move it away from its muslim roots. As a result, you get every yokel in the country praying to him like a new god. Morons.
English (chavs)- For invading the island and turning it into your own cesspit of a theme park. You build ghost towns all over what was once nice countryside, so you can come to the island for maybe -what- one week a year and then leave it? Do whatever you want to Greek side, it was commercialised before I got there, but leave the Turkish side alone; it's not your disco. It's where people live you fat pink bastards.
So there we go; Im TurkishC and I hate everyone who hates me.
People from the most exotic island of Cyprus
Hot, independent women who don't give a damm.
PEOPLE FROM CYPRUS who are pretty and some are ignorant and gossips but hey every race has their proplem people

Cypriots are inhabitants of Cyprus. There are two types of Cypriots: Greek and Turkish.
I met Cypriots when I was in Cyprus.
A person from the island of Cyprus. The most hospitable people on earth. Cypriots have greek origins. They speak Greek and have the same culture as mainland Greece. They are though doomed to live with the Turkish inhabitants of the island. (Doesn't matter, life goes on).
Cypriots are the best around!
A Cypriot is a native of Cyprus. Cypriots are descended from the Greeks of the Aegean, and speak the Cypriot dialect which is similar to the Greek spoken in the mainland but with a few small local differences.Cypriots are Great looking people and very friendly, (Even to drunken British tourists!)
Please Note: There is NO such thing, as a 'Turkish Cypriot' they are merely Turks, who INVADED Cyprus in 1974, and thus have no blood ties to the island, nor similarities to Cypriots or Greeks (Turks are Muslim Arabs, Greeks/Cypriots on the other hand are White, Christian and European) These Turkish INVADERS do not have the right to call themselves Cypriots.
I went to the Greek Island of Cyrpus and got it on with some sexy Cypriot Girls!
Cypriot is the term used for the natives of the island of Cyprus both being Turkish and Greek Cypriot. Turkish Cypriots had inhabited the island for 400 years during the rule of the Ottoman Empire. During this period the Turkish Cypriots had become the majority on the island. During the rule of the Ottoman Empire, all peoples of Cyprus including the Turks, Greeks and Maronites amongst more were free to live their lives the way they wanted and were free to believe in what they wanted. After Cyprus had become independant from Britain in 1960, many Turkish Cypriots were forced to immigrate to Britain or Australia because the discrimination they faced from the Majority of the Racsist Greek Cypriots at the time. The Greek Cypriots were trying to wipe out the Turkish Cypriots off the island by the means of mass murder. If it wasn't for the intervention of Turkey Turkish Cypriots would have all been killed by those cowards called the Greek Cypriots. Ne Mutlu Turkum Diyene
