Turkey’s Erdogan is Threatening To Convert One of Christianity’s Most Historic Churches Back into a Mosque

The 6th century church is currently a museum.

Turkey’s Islamist president is threatening to convert one of the world’s most historic and iconic Christian churches into an Islamic mosque, in a move designed to appease Tayyip Erdogan’s political base and insult Christians.

The Council of State of Turkey is expected to rule this week on a request by Erdogan to convert the Hagia Sophia Museum into an Islamic mosque, and international observers are expecting that the court system will sign off on Erdogan’s initiative to turn the former church into a mosque.

The Hagia Sophia Church was constructed in Constantinople(today known as Istanbul) in A.D. 537 by Justinian, the then-Emperor of the Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire. The church was a global symbol of the Byzantine civilization throughout the Middle Ages. It was converted into an Islamic mosque in the year 1453 when the Ottoman Empire captured Constantinople under the leadership of Mehmed II, a moment in history that Erdogan and his supporters point to as a moment of national pride.

When Turkey emerged from the declining Ottoman Empire shortly after World War I, the nation’s contemporary founder, Kemal Ataturk, arranged for the building to be placed into a use as a museum. The building, which is Turkey’s most visited tourist attraction to this day, has remained as such since 1935.

The church remains a holy symbol to hundreds of millions of Orthodox Christians throughout the world today. Bartholomew I, the Christian bishop who holds the Byzantine title of “Patriarch of Constantinople” in Istanbul, warned of the consequences of such an inflammatory cultural act. “The potential conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque will turn millions of Christians around the world against Islam… What can I say as a Christian clergyman and the Greek patriarch in Istanbul? Instead of uniting, a 1,500-year-old heritage is dividing us. I am saddened and shaken.

The 6th century building is not only noteworthy to two major world religions(originally Christianity), but is the most architecturally impressive building preserved from the early Middle Ages. Many of Constantinople’s most historic churches and buildings, such the Church of the Holy Apostles, were destroyed by the Ottoman conquerors in the decades following the 1453 Siege of Constantinople.

The Hagia Sophia church contains some of the most-well preserved medieval Byzantine images of Christ, Mary, various saints, and several Eastern Roman Emperors. As images of the human form are prohibited in Islam, some have questioned whether the artwork- which was uncovered from beneath a coating material when the building was phased from an Ottoman mosque into a museum- will be destroyed in the event it’s turned back into a mosque.

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, the government of Greece(which views itself as the inheritor of the Byzantine Empire’s Greek-speaking legacy), and United Nations cultural institutions have spoken against the planned usurpation of the historic church. Pope Francis has been conspicuously silent, thus far.

Norway Turns Against Dangerous COVID-19 Vaccines, Warns ‘Very Frail’ People Should Not Take the Shots

These vaccines can be deadly.

Published

Health officials in Norway are now warning “very frail” people that they should not take the COVID-19 inoculation because of dangerous side-effects from the experimental shots.

Coronavirus hysteria skeptic Alex Berenson posted a translated version of an article from a Norwegian news outlet.

So far, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has assessed 20 adverse reaction reports after the COVID-19 vaccination. 13 of these had a fatal outcome, shows a new report from the Norwegian Medicines Agency,” the translated report states.

“If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated, said subject director Steinar Maden in the Norwegian Medicines Agency at a webinar on coronary vaccine for journalists on Thursday,” it continues.

Negative side-effects from the vaccine included fever, malaise, and reactions at the injection site as well as gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. The most common side-effects are respiratory symptoms including cough and shortness of breath.

This is the first report on side effects from the Norwegian Medicines Agency, which will in future come with weekly side effect reports,” the report stated.

Big League Politics has been reporting on the terrible side-effects of experimental COVID-19 vaccines for many months now:

A group of doctors is urging the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to make the public aware of the painful side effects that will come with the experimental COVID-19 vaccines that have been rushed through the testing process.

Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association (AMA) is worried that lying to the public will cause them not to pursue the full COVID-19 vaccine treatment, which is expected to take at least two doses.

“We really need to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park,” Fryhofer said during a virtual meeting with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a group of outside medical experts tasked with advising the CDC. “They are going to know they had a vaccine. They are probably not going to feel wonderful. But they’ve got to come back for that second dose.”

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, who works as director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, says their agency is working on providing a guidance of sorts for health care officials about the side-effects of the COVID-19 vaccines.

“How does that impact planning on a hospital level in terms of which staff gets vaccinated which day?” Messonnier said.

However, the CDC does not seem too concerned about educating the public about the dangers of these experimental vaccines…

The vaccine regime that is coming into place is a technocrat’s dream, with COVID-19 mass hysteria used to fuel this crazed push to inject the world with experimental shots.

As more people are stuck with this Big Pharma poison, the so-called conspiracy theorists are proven right with their concerns.
