GENOCIDE - Muslim Turks Steal Christian Churches

NATO Genocide Against Christians

  • NATO member Turkey not only helped ISIS but is oppressing Christians.  Note that the other members of NATO remain silent about this endless genocide against Christians by an alliance member.

(London Daily Mail)  -  One of the world's oldest Christian communities fears extinction after the Turkish government confiscated 50 of its properties. 

The Syriac Orthodox Church was deprived of dozens of churches, monasteries and cemeteries over claims the ownership deeds had lapsed. 

Christian leaders say the assets being seized include two monasteries built 1,500 years ago, the loss of which would be a crushing blow to their culture.

Fears are running high after a last-ditch appeal against the confiscation on behalf of the ancient monastery of Mor Gabriel in southeastern Turkey was rejected.

Kuryakos Ergun, chairman of the Mor Gabriel Monastery Foundation, said Turkey's Christians had 'never been through as difficult a legal period'.

The 1,500 year old monastery of Mor Gabriel (pictured) in
southeastern Turkey was stolen by the Muslim government.

He told Fox: 'We went to sleep one night, and we woke up the next morning to see what was ours the night before no longer belonged to us.' 

Taking to Al-Monitor, he added: 'Our churches and monasteries are what root Syriacs in these lands; our existence relies on them.'

Critics say the dispute is a new chapter in the long history of religious persecution of the small Christian community by the Turkish state.

The row began when Turkish government land officials redrew the boundaries around Mor Gabriel and other villages in 2008 to update a national land registry.

The monks say the new boundaries turn over to the villages large plots of land the monastery has owned for centuries, and designate monastery land as public forest. 

Christian groups believe officials want to ultimately stamp out the Syriac Orthodox monastery.

Turkey's ruling AK Party government, which has Islamist roots, has repeatedly been criticised for hampering religious freedom for minority groups.

Syriacs are one of Turkey's oldest communities, descendants of a branch of Middle Eastern Christianity.
The Syriac Orthodox Church is united by a language derived from Aramaic, the language Jesus spoke. 
It was founded around the year 512 by Patriarch Severus in Antioch, which was then part of the Byzantine Empire. 
Since then, Syriacs spread throughout the Middle East, and there are surviving communities in Iraq, Iran and Syria.  
There were 250,000 Syriacs when Ataturk founded Turkey after World War I from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire.
Thousands of them were killed in massacres by Ottoman forces during the 'Seyfo' or the Year of the Sword, in 1915. Today they number 20,000. 
Syriacs migrated throughout the 20th century to Europe, fleeing first persecution by the new secular republic, and later to escape violence between Kurdish separatist rebels and the Turkish military in the southeast.
Their historic homeland is called Tur Abdin, the Mountains of the Servants of God, and is situated on a plateau between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. 
This is studded with more than 80 monasteries, many of which are in ruins.

The Muslim Genocide Against The Greeks

Muslim soldiers of the Ottoman Empire
Eyewitness account of J. A. MacGahan 
on Turkish atrocities in Bulgaria 1876.
"But let me tell you what we saw at Batak ... The number of children killed in these massacres is something enormous. They were often spitted on bayonets, and we have several stories from eye-witnesses who saw the little babes carried about the streets, both here and at Olluk-Kni, on the points of bayonets.
The reason is simple. When a Mohammedan has killed a certain number of infidels he is sure of Paradise, no matter what his sins may be ... It was a heap of skulls, intermingled with bones from all parts of the human body, skeletons nearly entire and rotting, clothing, human hair and putrid flesh lying there in one foul heap, around which the grass was growing luxuriantly. It emitted a sickening odor, like that of a dead horse, and it was here that the dogs had been seeking a hasty repast when our untimely approach interrupted them ... The ground is covered here with skeletons, to which are clinging articles of clothing and bits of putrid flesh. The air was heavy, with a faint, sickening odor, that grows stronger as we advance. It is beginning to be horrible."
