For the first time in over 80 years. Their supremacism knows no bounds. Instead of apologizing for their genocide against millions of Christians they do this. It’s just so vile.
Yet another example (in an interminable line) of stunning Islamic supremacism. Turkey is a Muslim country with thousands of mosques. Not. good. enough. They have to take over one of the most exquisite and iconic churches in the Christian world.
If there were any humanity in the Muslim world, they would return to church to its rightful place in the Christian world.
Daily readings of the Quran at Hagia Sophia? Turkey’s new plan — revealed this week — puts Hagia Sophia at risk, and we need you to act now:
Greece protested the news this week, but this morning, Turkey just brushed off the outcry. We need to increase the pressure on Turkey, and that starts with a strong statement from the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Hagia Sophia to Turn to Mosque During Muslim Ramadan,
By Philip Chrysopoulos, Greek Reporter, June 11, 2016:
Hagia Sophia to Turn to Mosque During Muslim Ramadan
The morning prayer from the Koran was read at Hagia Sophia in Istanbul on the first day of Muslim Ramadan, Monday, June 6, in the presence of Turkey’s general secretary of religious affairs.
The former Byzantine church that now serves as a museum, will turn into a mosque for the next 30 days and the Koran will be read daily until July 5, when Ramadan ends. Religious state channel TRT Diyanet will be broadcasting daily at 2:00 pm from Hagia Sophia.
The fact that the former Christian Orthodox Church that for the past 80 years has operated as a museum and now turns into a mosque for one month has touched a sensitive nerve with Christian Greeks and has been criticized broadly.
However, no official complaint was voiced from the Greek government. The lack of official reaction has prompted criticism from conservative opposition party New Democracy.
“The decision of Turkish authorities to schedule the Koran reading in Hagia Sophia for the next month, has virtually transformed it into a mosque for the first time in 80 years. It is a provocative and incomprehensible act and shows disrespect against Orthodox Christians across the world and is not in line with Turkey’s European course,” said in a joint statement the coordinator of Foreign Affairs and Defence of New Democracy, Dora Bakoyannis, and head of the party’s Foreign sector Ioannis Kefalogiannis.
The conservative party MPs also call on the foreign ministry to take appropriate action immediately and criticize the ministry for its lukewarm, defeatist policy of not displeasing anyone and being good to everyone.
