Winds of Jihad: It took Turkey 100 years to eliminate the Christians…

Muslim Interfaith Outreach: On September 6-7, 1955 a carefully staged, government sponsored series of riots took place that caused irreparable harm to the Greek community of Istanbul, Turkey. The events, well documented by historians– Greek and Turkish alike. Source.

The BBC reported that the Pope visited the Blue Mosque in Istanbul as part of a three-day visit to Turkey. According to the BBC reporter, the Pope offered a moment of “silent prayer…next to the Grand Mufti.”

The BBC man said that it was, “a moment of rich symbolism in terms of the inter-faith dialogue” that the Pope is trying to promote.

The BBC reports that the Christian population of Turkey has declined from 20% to 0.2% in the last 100 years. No, that’s not a typo. And it’s not an accident either…

    3 million Christian subjects of Turkey were murdered between 1875 and 1924. That’s reality. Turkey has yet to admit the atrocities officially and apologize.

    And still we hear that the Ottoman was tolerant. Brian Lilley clings to that illusion unfortunately.

      hmm, in some years Ottoman empire was tolerant, at least it was more tolerant for Jews then Christian empires were for them. But it was only for a short time and Jews were always a scapegoats if things went wrong. The Christians were also tolerated, but only as dhimmis, and if things went wrong they also were a scapegoats.
