Turkey's Erdogan orders the conversion of Hagia Sophia back into a mosque

Turkey's Erdogan orders the conversion of Hagia Sophia back into a mosque
This action represents islamic domination and supremacy as well as the increasingly islamofascistic government of recep tayyip erdogan and his desire to re-establish the ottoman empire and take back the stolen lands they were forced to give up after being defeated in world war 1.

President Erdogan issued a decree Friday ordering Hagia Sophia to be opened for Muslim prayers, an action likely to provoke international condemnation around a World Heritage Site cherished by Christians and Muslims alike for its religious significance, for its stunning structure and as a symbol of conquest.
The presidential decree came minutes after a Turkish court announced that it had revoked Hagia Sophia’s status as a museum, which for the last 80 years had made it a monument of relative harmony and a symbol of the secularism that was part of the foundation of the modern Turkish state.
Built in the sixth century as a cathedral, Hagia Sophia stands as the greatest example of Byzantine Christian architecture in the world. But it has been a source of Christian Muslim rivalry, having stood at the center of Christendom for nearly a millennium and then, after being conquered, of the Muslim Ottoman Empire, when it was last used as a mosque.
Greek culture minister, Lina Mendoni, condemned Turkey’s decision as a “direct challenge to the entire civilized world,” adding that Mr. Erdogan’s nationalism had pushed the country back six centuries.
“President Erdogan has chosen for Turkey its cultural isolation,” she said.
Josep Borrell, the European Union’s senior diplomat, called Turkey’s decision regrettable.
In its own statement on Friday, UNESCO said that Hagia Sophia is inscribed on its world heritage list as a museum which binds the Turkish state to ensure that “no modification is made to the outstanding universal value of the property.” The organization added that communities and others concerned with the property should be ensured inclusive and equitable access to the monument.
Greece strongly condemns Turkey’s decision to turn the World Heritage monument of Hagia Sophia into a mosque, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Friday, noting that this “insults its ecumenical character”.
In a statement, the premier said, “This decision – coming 85 years after it was declared a museum – is an insult to its ecumenical character. It also constitutes a choice that similarly insults all those who recognize the monument as part of world culture.”
The decision, Mitsotakis underlined, “affects not only Turkey’s relations with Greece, but those with the European Union, UNESCO, and the global community as a whole.”
“It is regrettable that the Turkish leadership, which in 2005 worked for the Alliance of Cultures, now chooses to move in the entirely opposite direction,” he said.


christian crusaders need to conquer turkey and take back their church that was stolen by the ottoman muslims about 600 years ago.

I'm not sure that fight fire with fire is the way to move forward.
At the end of the day, the Church is in Turkey. Ultimately only the Turks will decide what to do with it.

I think it's time to turn it into a synagogue.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Mosque is already a bordello, considering that Muslim men sell there their daughters and sisters to marriage.

So it could be a pub, or maybe a public latrine.

yes hagi sophia status is about turkey's sovereign right it is off the discussion table. how did turkey act irresponsibly? hagia sophia was a big cathedral during the byzantine era which was later changed into mosque after emperor mehmet 2 laid a seige on constantinople and conquered it in 1453, not only hagia sophia was converted into mosques other churches like chora church, rotonda, and hagios demetrios were converted into mosques too.

majority of the churches were destroyed or converted to mosques over time. it was mustapha kemal attaturk the new leader of turkey who turned hagia sophia and other byzantine structures to museum.

It is a beautiful building, scavenged by Christians from a number of pagan temples, made into a mosque when the Byzantine empire fell, and then into a museum under Attaturk.

It is too bad if the general public is going to be denied entry into this wonderfully historic place. On the other hand, people regularly visit the Blue Mosque, which is just across from the Hagia Sophia. I hope that continues as well.

As for Erodgan, he is destroying the secular society founded by Attaturk (who had his own problems, admittedly). I grieve for the historical and cultural treasures of Turkey.

This is actually a relief. The world clearly has a dearth of houses of worship and a glut of museums. Finally, Turkish Muslims have something they’ve never had before - a place to pray.
