Turkey's Ä°hsanoÄŸlu: "Extremist rightist groups are intolerant of cultural diversity and cause Islamophobia in Europe"

Can’t have that. What’s the world coming to?  Never mind that Turkey reject cultural diversity; who needs that when you already got Islam?

“Extremist rightist movements are intolerant of cultural diversity in Europe.”

Ekmeleddin Ä°hsanoÄŸlu, secretary-general of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), said “nothing could replace dialogue….”  (Hurriyet Daily News)

Lets see how this “dialogue” works:

Turkey: Muslim mobs attacking Christian clerics

More indication of the ongoing re-Islamization of Turkey. “Christian clerics alarmed at growing threats, persecution in Turkey,” from Hürriyet Daily News, April 10 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Christian clerics in Turkey have expressed their anxiety regarding the growing threats they face in wake of an attack against Pastor Semih Serkek of the Protestant “Lütuf” (“Grace”) Church in Istanbul’s Bahçelievler district on April 7.“Attacks against Christian clerics drop off for a while, then they begin to re-energize. [Such attacks] have begun to accelerate again in recent days. We hesitate when opening our doors and welcoming the faithful inside,” Pastor Krikor AÄŸabaloÄŸlu of the GedikpaÅŸa Armenian Protestant Church in Istanbul told the Hürriyet Daily News.


Muslims Threaten Church, Cover Its Cross with Garbage Bags


Attack on Easter

Three unidentified individuals attacked and beat Serkek on the night of April 7, immediately after an Easter service. “They were three people around the age of 18. They wore [prayer caps] on their heads. They forced the door open and said they were going to kill me unless I recited the ‘Kelime-i Åžahadet’ [Islamic confession of faith]. I received a severe blow to my chest,” Serkek told the Daily News. The attacks were not coincidental, according to Serkek, who had also served as a mentor to the three victims slain in the Malatya Zirve Publishing House incident in eastern Turkey.

Pastor Orhan Picaklar of the Agape Protestant Church in the Black Sea province of Samsun also said he has been living with a personal escort 24 hours a day for the past four years, since a plot to assassinate him first came to light. “Police [officers] keep watch at the door during mass; the believers are afraid to enter the church due to the threat to their lives,” he said. The make-shift church, located inside an apartment building, also came under attack about a month ago, Picaklar said, adding that the congregation was chagrined at being stuck in an apartment. “[The authorities] gave the green light to the construction of a new church in 2004, within the framework of the European Union harmonization laws, although with the pre-condition that it must be no smaller than 2,500 square meters. We have no budget. We appealed to establish a church building 1,000 square meters in size, but did not receive approval for it.”

AÄŸabaloÄŸlu said that in the case of his church, the state intentionally refused to grant permission for the construction of a church building. “They are trying to stymie the spread of Christianity in this way.”

Islamic law forbids Christians to build new churches.

Death to Churches (Gatestone)

“While the mainstream media, government officials and so on try to portray these attacks as products of poverty, the fact is that churches are under siege wherever there are significant numbers of Muslims.”

  1. Yes,Yes, of course free people in the West are intolerant of the intolerant islamic culture, because it is so intolerant that it creates islamophobia everywhere, where people are free to think themselves.

  2. The world is not what it is, its what we tell you how to see it. Who are you going to believe: Ihsanoghlu or your lying eyes?

    ‘Islamic cities peaceful home for places of worship of all faiths’

    12 April 2012 / ABDÃœLHAMÄ°T BÄ°LÄ°CÄ° , Ä°STANBUL

    The places of worship of all three Abrahamic religions sit peacefully side-by-side in cities where Islam is the dominant religion, including Damascus, Baghdad, Cairo and Ä°stanbul, and the followers of these faiths live together in peace, Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ä°hsanoÄŸlu has said.

    And the lamb will lie with the lion, and…..

  3. Sounds just like the communist double speak to me. No wonder Marxism and Islam are so interchangeable.

    What a joke, So, Turkey wants to pretend the 1950’s programs against the Christian Greeks never happened in Istanbul? Or Cypress-which like everything else Muslims touch has become a shit hole.

    Not to mention their historical intolerance the Turks have towards the Kurds.
