They see it as follows:
  • A US ally, Turkey, is occupying a weaker country, Cyprus, with backing from the US (political backing and military equipment)
  • A US ally, Israel, is occupying a weaker country/people, Palestine/Palestinians, with backing from the US (political backing and military equipment)
So, it's easy to see why Greeks would identify with Palestinians in the above conflict.
