Can’t have that. After all, these ungrateful Turkish Muslims believe they are superior to the lowly Greeks who took them in, gave them food and shelter, and education for their little terrorist-in-training brats. But hey, can’t expect them to put Greek rules and laws above Islamic law, now can we?
YenisafekGreece’s Western Thrace region is home to a Muslim Turkish community of 150,000. In 1983, the nameplate of the Turkish Union of Xanthi (Iskece Turk Birligi) was removed and the group was completely banned in 1986 on the pretext that “Turkish” was in its name.
Turkey has long decried Greek violations of the rights of its Muslims and the Turkish minority, from closing mosques and shutting schools to not letting Muslim Turks elect their religious leaders.
The measures violate the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne as well as ECHR verdicts, making Greece a state that flouts the law, say Turkish officials.
Here’s an idea. Don’t like Greece? There are 56 other Muslim countries where you would be much happier – including the closest one, where you came from – Turkey. Say goodbye!
