Erdogan Confirms Hagia Sophia Will Become a Mosque

A Giant Fuck You To Christians

  • The dictator of Muslim Turkey uses Trump as an excuse to turn this great Christian Church again into a mosque.

(CBN News)  -  After it was reported that Turkish President Recep Erdogan was considering converting Istanbul’s iconic Hagia Sophia into a functioning mosque, many Orthodox Christians hoped he was just speculating. However, in an interview given yesterday, Erdogan confirmed that the historic site, which was previously a Christian cathedral and a special place of worship for Greek Orthodox Christians, will be turned into an enormous Islamic center.

“Ayasofya (Haghia Sophia) will no longer be called a museum. Its status will change,” Erdogan said in a live broadcast, according to Hurriyet Daily News. “We will call it a mosque.”

Erdogan then called attention to the Israeli forces’ action on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in East Jerusalem earlier this month, ranting that those who stay silent on what is going on in Israel should not be afforded the right to criticize his plans for the Hagia Sophia.

“Those who remain silent when Masjid Al-Aqsa is attacked, trampled, its windows smashed, cannot tell us what to do about the status of Ayasofya,” Erdogan continued, noting that his decision was in response to President Donald Trump’s recent decision to recognize the Golan Heights as Israeli territory — something which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called a “two-fold act of historic justice.”

“It is not only a great temple of Christendom — the largest for many centuries — it also belongs to humanity,” Greek Foreign Minister George Katrougalos implored, according to the Greek Reporter. “It has been recognized by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization), as part of our global cultural heritage.”

“So any questioning of this status is not just an insult to the sentiments of Christians, it is an insult to the international community and international law,” he added.

From the Hagia Sophia
church in Istanbul.

Christians are told we must respect Islam, but Islam does not respect Christians. Constantinople was taken by the Muslim Turks 1453. Trapped in the Hagia Sophia church, congregants and refugees became spoils to be divided amongst the Muslim invaders.
The building was desecrated and looted, and occupants enslaved, violated or slaughtered;
 while elderly and infirm were killed, women and girls were raped and the remainder chained and sold into slavery.
Priests continued to perform Christian rites until stopped by the invaders.
 When the Sultan entered the church, he insisted it should be at once transformed into a mosque.

The Fall of Constantinople to Jihad in 1453.
What had been a Christian city and capital of the Roman Empire for 1,100 years became Muslim through violent Jihad.  Over 34,000 Christians were killed, enslaved or deported.
