In 1453 the Islamic hordes (Ottoman caliphate) invaded Constantinople, and turned the Hagia Sophia Christian church into a mosque. It is what the Muslim invaders do: They did the same when they built a mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and if they had taken the United States on 9/11 they would have proceeded to build a mosque with the highest minarets in the world on the World Trade Center site in New York.
Today, Turkey claims to be a “secular state,” but that is an Islamic lie. If Turkey was a secular state the Islamic minarets surrounding the Hagia Sophia Christian church would have been removed and Christian worship services would be taking place in the church. Instead, Turkey has, as a false claim of “secularism,” turned the church into a “museum,” that way Turkey doesn’t have to remove its Islamic minarets. There is much evidence that Turkey is not a secular state, but I see the minarets around the Hagia Sophia Christian church as the most glaring: A statement that Turkey is an Islamic state. Erdogan says, “The minarets are our swords” and allows his fellow Muslims to use it as a mosque at Ramadan.
Syria, on the other hand, is a secular state, and truthfully so. And it is for this reason that Turkey’s government has been working with Obama and Hillary Clinton to overthrow President Assad. It is also why Erdogan has now invaded Syria with the green light from the U.S. and Iran.
