Hey mate, you are right about the settlers from mainland Turkey there, but your numbers are wrong methinks. According to your numbers there are only 100k Turkish Cypriots, but even in 1960 there were 104.000 T/C , 50 years ago???. And this number is the result of an island-wide census man:

I gave the 1570 reference because of the reference of the Turkish Cypriots, that a some proportion of the Turkish population were living there and didn't settle there after 1974 (and yes many did). I think you know my point of view even a little bit so i don't think you mean when you ask "Ottomans conquered Syria, Israel and all of the Balkans too, does this mean that these places are or have something Turkish in them or that the Turkey has a claim on these lands?" tounge

Believe me (or not) only a few Turkish people have imperial Ottoman view, i think even most of the nationalists have not such a dream.

Yeah i am not happy either with the Turkish troops there, but you know what happened there in 1970's before they get there, don't you?

I know you're cool mate, hehe. :)
Before British got in the game in the 50's the 2 communities were living peacefully. I just can't understand how Turkey wants this dispute to end if they don't even recognize Republic of Cyprus as a state in the first place, only country in the world that still doesn't i think. And they threaten Cyprus with further military action every other month. How does this help? The island has no army for it's protection ffs.
