Provocations from Turkey continue after Islamic ceremony in Agia Sofia: accuses Hellas and demands that the mosque in Athens be built immediately
The Turkish provocation with the Islamic prayer inside Agia Sofia generated a flood of international condemnation however that wasn’t enough to lessen the audacity of the Turks.
Immediately following the statement from the State Department, the Turks issued their own statement in which they cut off their nose to spite their face. They accused Hellas of “pressuring the Turkish minority” that “it has cases against elected Muftis” and that the mosque at Votanikos needs to be built.
This should be regarded as a lesson to the politicos, who not only allowed the Turkish prime minister to visit our Thrace but accompanied him. After this provocative support from Syriza the Turks immediately started to aggressively refer to a “Turkish minority” in contravention of the Treaty of Lausanne, to demand that Hellas accept the pseudo muftis and that a mosque in Athens must be built.
This proves that without a doubt the mosque in Athens is being built under Turkish orders while the tolerance of the state towards every kind of pro-Turk organisation is a compliance born of cowardice and indecision. No mosque in Athens! Anyone who feels Turkish can go to Turkey!
