Last year I met an American archaeologist who was living in the Greek part of Cyprus on Sept. 11, 2001. She was told to leave immediately because of the strong anti-Americanism—it wasn’t safe to stay. I think she has been back to the island since then. If she were ever to visit the Turkish part of Cyprus or Turkey itself, she would never be allowed back in the Greek part of Cyprus.

Thank you for the post and ping. Indeed, the visit of the pope to Cyprus is wrought with potential danger. However, as in his trip to Turkey, he will be meeting with government officials in his capacity as a sovereign leader and they will not risk anything happening to Pope Benedict XVI. I am confident that security measures will be in place to protect the pope during his visit.
