Greece’s Muslim Minority Complain of ‘Marginalisation’, Demand ‘Respect’ from Breitbart Jerusalem
GNN Note – Unfortunately, the muslims have been used like as a pawn in a very ugly game of global chess. The people creating this mess, like George Soros and his Open Society Foundation are wrecking lives, wrecking nations and creating chaos on a global scale. What is happening right now on the southern border of the U.S. was born, and funded, by these same evil people. It is estimated that more than 10,000,000 migrants have been brought to Europe over the past 5+ years. This is going to fundamentally erase European culture, European nations and transform the entire continent.
(AFP) Outwardly, Komotini looks like other Greek cities, but there is a major difference: it has nine mosques whereas there are none in Athens.
The northeastern city has existed from the second century and was captured by Ottoman-era Turkey in the 14th. It was an important hub connecting the capital city of Constantinople, as Istanbul was then known, with the European part of the empire.
Now it is home to nearly 30,000 Muslims, many of whom complain of marginalisation
Greece has for centuries had a testy relationship with Turkey, with a slew of disputes ranging from Aegean sea issues to the long-running Cyprus problem.
“The minority Muslims and their Greek compatriots cohabit but each side lives in its own corner,” said Mustafa Mustafa, a lawmaker from Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s party, speaking in this frontier city of some 60,000 people.
Tsipras visits Turkey on Tuesday in a bid to improve relations.
“Relations deteriorated in the 1960s and until 1990 many villages in the area were ringed by military barricades,” Mustafa, who is in his sixties, said.
“We could not access our properties or get a driving licence,” he said.
– ‘We are being used’ –
“We would like to be a bridge of peace and friendship and not act as a brake.”
