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'.

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.

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." Read More . . . .
