Ianus - again

Reader comment on item: Turkey in Cyprus vs. Israel in Gaza
in response to reader comment: "In the right extent ..."

Dear Ianus,

you reply to my comment about injustices with minority groups in e.g. Greece:

"If all you can produce by comparison is a mosque in Athens denied to Moslem ..."

Why are you so obsessed with religion? We are in 21st century! No enlightment in Poland? I have never talked about a mosque in Athens, and I do not care about a mosque in Athens. I do not even know, if there are any Muslims or not. Read about legal hurdles in Greece to open up a radio station in a foreign language (by the way, against EU laws). That is one example. I am not comparing murders on ethnic groups by Turks or murders and rapes by Greek army during the Greek invasion towards Ankara after WW I, it is just an example about a lack of an open society in Western Europe.

"...contrasted to the government-sponsored campaign to terrorize, ruin and destroy the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constaninople , one of the oldest Christian instituion in this world !"

Ianus, the town is still called Istanbul and I have not heart about a destruction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Please do not send me any conspirative information, even you should know, that a destruction will never happen.

Submitting....
