TIME TO CUT BAIT – THROW TURKEY TO THE WOLVES – ERDOGAN OUT OF NATO

We have previously addressed the suicide bomber who rules Turkey; a wild man with an iron fist rule. A trouble maker consistently fanning the flames of all those who hate Islam. A Muslim miscreant, he has now drawn the wrath of Germany and the Netherlands. How? by calling Netherlands policy of stopping Turkish rallies a Nazi tactic. Germany is aghast, Merkel was shocked that the term Nazis was used. In fact the Nazi is Erdogan, he is guilty of stifling free speech, jailed thousands, firing hundreds of thousands of judges, police, military, imams, foreigners, intellectuals, elitists and the usual suspects; he shut down the free press and demand the United States hand over Fetullah Gulen.

Turkey is now run by the same thugs that toppled Egypt’s Morsi. One thing stands out here, Turkey is a member of Nato. Obama never weighted in on the Turkish situation because, like Erdogan, Obama is a secret member of the Brotherhood.

Remember his reaction when the General al-Sisi interrupted Morsi’s reign of suppressing the freedoms of its citizens. Obama went berserk, stopped military aid, halted imports and pulled our Diplomatic core. This did not happen in Turkey and we know why. Obama is one of them.  But now Trump rules – he is not about to bow to Allah. 

NATO and the United States looks the other way when it is to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. For instance their sending weapons to the Palestinians aboard the MV Mavi Marmara. Israel intercepted the MV in international waters during its voyage to Gaza. Fighting erupted and 9 members on the MV were killed.

Click here for Israel and the Kurds. Could this be the reason why Erdogan hates Israel.

The Kurds and Kurdish-speaking Yezidis are once again caught in the grip of the Sunni-Shia vice · Against this background and often isolated, their special relationship with Israel stands out for the good: military advice, equipment and training are only some of the ways Israel has helped the Kurdish struggle for independence · “They only have trust in Israel,” says Brigadier General (res.) Tzuri Sagi, the man who led the Kurds to their stunning victories against Iraq in the sixties and seventies.

Erdogan has unleashed a tirade on the Kurds who make up a substantial number of citizens living in Turkey – approximately 20,000,000. Turkey is afraid of them breaking away. Kurds in Turkey and Iraq have defended themselves against outside forces, particularly the Iraqi shias and the pro-Assad forces.

In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews vile from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia. Once the center of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople competed with Rome.

From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as a Greek Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque.[9][10] The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were removed and the mosaics depicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also removed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrab, minbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia is currently (2014) the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.

Before the world pays attention to this Turkish imbecile they must demand that the Hagia Sophia be restored to its rightful place in history. It is noteworthy to remind those Christians that Turkey once 100% Christian is now outnumbered by Muslims, 80,000,000 to less than 200,000. this is a manifestation of the treatment Christians receive in the Muslim world.

TO KNOW YOUR OPPONENT’S WEAKNESS BEFORE WAR ENSURES VICTORY

In the art of war, knowing your opponent’s weakness beforehand is half the battle.

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” “Sun Tzu said: The art of war is of vital importance to the State.”
Sun Tzu,

The Art of War “Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”  “Whether in an advantageous position or a disadvantageous one, the opposite state should be always present to your mind.”
Sun Tzu, The Art of War

These well known quotes from Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” are not to be taken lightly. Not only are they  applicable in our daily lives, business and personal, but are most helpful to the saavy in preparation for war. We would not be surprised if President Trump has read Sun Tzu’s epic. Now that he is President the rendering of their principles when confronting our enemies is most important.

We live in perilous times; being attacked by a reckless child and belligerent strong. This is the result of the weakness shown by Trump’s predecessor. Weakness begets threats. From Russia, China, Iran and North Korea we are on the receiving end of daily provocations. We must be ready to counter them, to be prepared for engagement that obviously will come in due time.

Those who play with fire will eventually get burned. Diminutive dictators or wannabee psychological midgets will find themselves ten feet under if they keep up the inflammatory rhetoric. Case in point is the little man who heads North Korea. A boy with a man’s ego, small stick and loose tongue is a very dangerous combination. History has dealt with these kinds of mental midgets. Testing President Trump early in his administration is a very callous endeavor which ultimately will end in a mass funeral for the psycho of North Korea.

Turkey is another hot spot. Ruled by a wannabee dictator for life, Erdogan, who has not the slightest idea of an adversary’s strength, guile and purpose will face a devastating defeat. Although Turkey has recently reestablished diplomatic relations with Israel, they are still very fragile and subject to the whim of both parties. Erdogan has lashed out at one time or another at the PKK, the Kurds and Israel. Small men inevitably try to take the focus off themselves, blaming others for their failures,  they need a fall guy to raise their self esteem.

For Turkey, which is now in a depression, Erdogan finds the best way to place blame is to create a bogeyman. As he continues to support a Palestinian State (small chance in hell that will happen anytime soon) but not for Turkish autonomy spews reckless diatribe and inflammatory comments warning the Kurds, the PKK and particularly the United States for harboring Fethullah Gullen, a firebrand cleric living in Pennsylvania who Erdogan blames for a failed coup. Eventually these will come back to haunt him.Roj emblem.svg

The future scenario is not pretty, much blood will be spilled.  Erdogan continues to light the fire of war, his enemies are preparing for the ultimate battle. The Kurds on one hand will take it to him from within. Israel is patiently waiting for another incident similar to the Mavi Marmara ; bringing the Turkish military into the conflict will obviously create an incident similar to the Gulf of Tonkin. The battle will be swift and victorious for Turkey’s enemies.

The United States will not back Turkey in case of conflict that is self provoked. Erdogan will remind us of NATO’s Article 5 of the North Atlantic treaty, requiring member states to come to the aid of any member state subject to an armed attack”, but this won’t happen. The Christian West will tell Turkey to fight their own battles. Turkey will be tossed from NATO. Turkey is a dictatorial state ruled by a Tyrant; free press has been stymied, political opposition is a few, 20,000 or more have been jailed since the failed coup. Erdogan is still focusing on  fake news circulating in his dinosaur sized head, little does he realize that there is a new man in town named TRUMP.

And for IRAN, Trump has stated that they will never have a nuclear weapon. This is a strong statement that will most likely be tested in the theater of war. The nuclear deal with Iran is a “total disaster.” We know it, Obama knew it. The table has been set by the Ayatollah’s, ballistic missiles have been launched by the rug merchants in violation of the nuclear agreement. This is of great concern in Israel and the United States. Israel’s Mossad, IDF and Shin Bet are on high alert. However, Israel is known to have many nuclear weapons, some are of the neutron type. But to nuke the Mullahs has risks. There are better ways than to launch a mushroom cloud over Tehran; for instance Israel can bunker bomb their nuclear facilities. Also launch triangular stealth drones to eviscerate the cancerous hierarchy committed to self destruction which is inevitable. Launching whole fleets of these offensive AI robots will bring the maniacal suicide bombers to their senses in quick fashion. For they will get their wish of death.

The map has been set, the time is close, be prepared for the Mother of all Battles.

ISTANBUL TURKEY – BOMBS AWAY ON NEW YEARS EVE

Welcoming in the New Year, Turks were celebrating past midnight at a fashionable nightclub when in a flash, a  shooter squeezed the trigger killing 39 and injuring dozens. He is on the loose, described as armed and dangerous – while the manhunt continues.

 

Number One and Two Suspects, “ISIS & outlawed PKK aka the KURDISH WORKERS PARTY” .  Flag of Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).svgAQMI Flag asymmetric.svg

That is the official line, but the REAL SUSPECT is Recep Erdogan; a ferocious killer in his own right. Erdogan has thrown in with Russia and al-Assad against ISIS in Syria; his aim is to prevent the Kurds from dividing up the spoils. The Kurds occupy and control large swaths of the Middle East, their numbers are estimated at 25 million.

Turkey is fast becoming an autocratic state. If you don’t show allegiance to Caesar Erdogan you are dead. The journalists, lawyers, advocates of democracy, PKK, Kurdish sympathizers, political opponents, Gulen, United States and all the other suspects are now the focus of a diminutive dictator with a voracious appetite.  The days of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk are over.

 

TERROR IN MOHAMMADLAND – ISTANBUL ON FIRE

(click)Mohammad strikes again; like a carnivore stalking its prey the Islamic Terrorists does not take prisoners; knowing no bounds, they strike at will. Shock of the attack brings about violent reactions from politicians who condemn it. They speak words always vowing to get the perpetrators, but never do.

The latest scene was a soccer stadium in Istanbul. A car bomb and suicide bomber brought the city to its knees. President Erdogan blames the PKK (the Kurdistan Workers Party) for the attack; says that they will pay for the carnage. This is the same old bogeyman. The Kurds, enemy of the Turkish state, a Jihadist organization fighting an autocratic state that denies them independence. Roj emblem.svg

About half of all Kurds live in Turkey. According to the CIA Factbook they account for 18 percent of the Turkish population. They are predominantly distributed in the southeastern corner of the country. Kurds also make up around 17% of Iraq’s population. They are the majority in at least three provinces in Northern Iraq which are known as Iraqi Kurdistan. The Kurds are estimated to number, worldwide, around 30–32 million, possibly as many as 37 million.

Digesting the Kurdish call for independence is not an academic exercise. For a population of 30 million people spread over a contiguous are of Syria, Iraq and Turkey, not having their own country, independent of a dictator’s hubristic dreams, the time has come for the United States to voice their support for this them.

The violent nature of autocrat Erdogan, a masochistic member of the Muslim Brotherhood, anti Israel Islamist, a diminutive Napoleonic type, critical of Western Values, is not fit to be a member of NATO or an ally of the United States

MUHAMMAD STRIKES AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN – UPDATE – JORDANIAN JOURNALIST GUNNED DOWN IN COLD BLOOD

Washington State mall massacre committed by Turkish immigrant. A 20-year-old Turkish immigrant was arrested Saturday in the murders of five people in a Washington state shopping mall, authorities said. The Jihad continues against Western Culture and Society.

 

Jordanian writer murdered for insulting ISLAM (a religion of peace).

Jordan writer in blasphemy case Nahid Hattar killed

cr7lpqnxeaa1ezx

Nahid Hattar, a Christian, was hit by three bullets outside the court in the capital Amman where he was standing trial, state news agency Petra said.

(click)Mr Hattar’s killer was arrested and police are investigating the killing, TV reports said.

The writer was detained in August for 15 days on charges of insulting God.

The cartoon he shared depicts a bearded man lying in bed with two women and smoking, asking God to bring him a drink.

Mr Hattar was attacked on social media for being anti-Islam.

He said he had not meant to cause offence and wanted to expose radical Islamists’ view of heaven.

But the authorities said he had broken the law by sharing the cartoon.

Time and time again, Islamic nations have not only proved but certified the vicious nature of their beliefs.

Answers are demanded by today’s lying politicians to the salient question why they believe that Muslims can be integrated into Western societies. It has never been done  in 1500 years. Only an IDIOT believes it possible. 

 

Afghan, who planted bombs in NY and NJ caught red handed. Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, who was described as “armed and dangerous.”

Rahami’s family lives in an apartment above First American Fried Chicken in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Mayor Chris Bollwage said. The family has a history of clashes with the community over the restaurant, which used to be open 24 hours a day,
— The Rahami family alleged discrimination and harassment in a lawsuit against the city and its police department in 2011, arguing that officials conspired against them with citations for allegedly violating a city ordinance on hours of operation.
— The suit alleged that police officers and city officials had said “the restaurant presented a danger to the community.” It also accused a neighboring business owner of saying, “Muslims make too much trouble in this country” and “Muslims don’t belong here.” The defendants, including police officers and city officials, denied the allegations.
— Bollwage said a 2012 ruling on the case favored the city, adding that the family’s restaurant was “disruptive in the city for many, many years.”

This malcontent never fit in (they never do), a loner, a deadbeat, unhappy with Western ways, dissatisfied of everything America stands for, an outsider, raged about American way, homophobic, a cultural malcontent; family had reservations too, they were schizophrenic, accused police of harassment, brought suit against the town, thought they were the object of discrimination. Please note that the the culprit had 7 brothers and sisters. Click here to learn more about the Rahmani family and their Jihadist view of America. Total estimated cost for the bombings etc is $100,000,000. Is Clinton going to cough up the money to pay for this.

This type of behavior is prevalent in the Muslim community. Contrary to outreach by Christians and Jews, the assimilation of Muslims with the zestful lives of the West is never going to happen. Fifteen hundred years of brainwashing, intimidation, infighting between themselves and some think there is hope that a cultural red line or glass ceiling will be penetrated. No way, ain’t gonna happen. Haven’t Americans noticed the demands of Muslims, demands that we, America, bow down to their culture rather than vice-versa. It must stop before it is too late.

The bottom line here is that these people were not Americans, but angry immigrants who were not happy in in the land of the Cowboy, blaming US for their failures We have seen these types in every community, money hungry, anti America, never to be culturally assimilated, accumulating money to be used for their retirement back in their home country. One may ask why did you come here in the first place? These people are interested in building America, they are interested in tearing it down.

France has the problem, we have the problem, New York has the problem, Saint Cloud has the problem.  Of course these incidents are always condemned, but that is like papering over the real problem. Muslims do not fit in, PERIOD. Donald Trump is the man to not hold back, but to do what should be done. And we all no what that is. And to reiterate, this Muslim malcontent had Jihad training in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He was interview about this, his answer, he was visiting relatives. Relatives, most relatives in these countries are Jihadists, suicide bomber types. Again, the FBI fell flat on their face.

Islam,  is the religion of Satan. This is a given, no matter how many spokesman defend the “religion of peace” it will never fly in America. Christianity, the Judeo-Christian ethic and Western civilization is anathema to Muslims. Their ways do not culturally fit into our society. The sooner we realize this, the better off we will be. Every predominantly Muslim country in the Middle East will be free of Christians by the next decade. Turkey, once the focal point of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople their Rome, has less than 170,000 Christians amongst 80,000,000 Muslims. Erdogan will see to it that those remaining will suffer pain by the day.

But we weigh in, one salient point needs description. The NBTP has nothing against Muslims who live peacefully in their own countries; there is no animosity here. For instance, Morocco, Tunisia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, for the most part are peaceful and law abiding. In fact, Saudi Arabia is a prime example where Islam, the Sunni version, predominates religious and social life. However, Christianity, no churches in Mecca or Medina, is forbidden.  This is due to the cultural class of Christianity and Islam. The government seeks the status quo going back 1500 years.

Muslim society goes about their ways without cultural conflict obeying their strict code of Islam for the most part without allowing Christian values to permeate their culture. The above examples provide an insight on the areas of conflict among society. The best way to prevent a continuation of flash points is to recognize that the Koran is not compatible with the Bible. Integration will never succeed when two religions clash, not only at the margins, but in the body of verses. So let it be said, let it be done, separation is the avenue toward peace, integration is the avenue toward revenge and conflict.

EXPECT BOMBS AWAY IN 2017 – WE LIVE IN AN EXPLOSIVE WORLD, PROBLEMS WITH TURKEY, SYRIA, NORTH KOREA, IRAN, CRIMEA, UKRAINE, CHINA, RUSSIA, ISIS

The PROBLEMS we face today are the result of the WEAKENED PRESIDENCY OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. Facts speak for themselves. Obama went from the Red Line in Syria to the White Line. Fact, when it comes to exercising the might of Old Glory, Obama turns tail and runs quicker than Jack Rabbit.

Last week it was announced that a Russian plane buzzed one of our jets, coming within ten feet. What did Obama do, waved at them. Ronald Reagan or for that matter, Barry Goldwater, would have P-8A Poseidon VX-20 Squadron.jpgincinerated the culprit.

Time and time again, under the watchful eye of Hillary Clinton, President Obama and the Secretary of Defense Carter have we seen America humiliated in front of the world. Continuing down this road will only lead to a major catastrophe and soon.

Iran has a hair trigger finger ready to be activated at an instant. However, as noted by Colin Powell last week, Israel stands ready with 200 nuclear tipped missiles aimed at the mullahs. There is no question that Jerusalem will go on red alert if push comes to shove and the push is getting mighty strong by the day. North Korea, the rogue of rogue nations will take to the nuclear blackmail club sometime in 2017; South Korea will have little or no choice but to address the threat with force. Get ready folks for the Korean peninsula to go dark.

Syria, 350,000 dead, 10 million on the run and what do we have? A barbaric wasteland occupied by killers of all stripes. The void left by Obama is responsible for this disaster. A humiliating defeat for the Red, White and Blue. But let’s not stop there. The Kurds, almost 25 million of them, friends of the United States, fighting alongside us to defeat ISIS, have repeated only the sorrows. The Dog Erdogan of Turkey, a diminutive Islamic dictator, who thinks he is a Jihadist Napoleon, has thrown it in the face of the United States. The Kurds deserve a country, there is no two ways about it.

It is important to point out the Erdogan is anti Christian, pro Muslim Brotherhood, anti United States and NATO. The time is now for the United States to give Turkey the boot that he has given to the Western World. Not to mention his persistence in demanding the return of the Muslim Cleric Gulen whom Erdogan believes was responsible for the recent coup attempt. A win by Trump will cause Erdogan to go Yellow Pants in a suicide bomber moment.

TURKEY MUST GO – CRIMINAL ERDOGAN EATS OUT OF PUTIN’S HAND

Mohammad strikes again! Fifty people attending a wedding party south of Istanbul were delivered piecemeal to their maker. Hands, legs and heads everywhere. A brutal scene of pure terror meant to sow unrest in the once Christian country.

Erdogan has a violent accusatory mindset, blaming the Kurds, Israel, ISIS for his country’s ills. He sees a conspirator, coup or assassin behind every Mosque. Erdogan’s own words there is “absolutely no difference” between ISIS, Kurdish rebels and the movement behind the U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, calling them terrorists. There is only one word to describe this anti American despot, “KILLER.” 

No one has claimed responsibility for today’s attack. According to news reports a 12-14 year girl suicide bomber pulled the trigger. Erdogan has seized control of the media effectively turning Turkey into an autocratic regime; opponents are afraid of what is next.

The Europeans have it right so far, rejecting Turkey’s entrance into the European Union (EU). What sets Europe apart from Turkey is their Islamic identity while Europe on the whole is Christian.  And don’t forget that Turkey, mainly consisting of an Asian people, was an invading country under the Ottomans; Greece, Bosnia and Spain fell in their wake. That brings us to Turkey today. A NATO member under the iron hand of Islamist Erdogan who has no trouble stirring the pot of racism, blaming others for his faults.

Case in point, the Kurds who have been clamoring for their own country without success. Turkey is adamant that the Kurds are Turks and not minorities, therefore by acquiescing to their demand it would open the floodgates for others. That is a self serving argument. And with ISIS one mile from the Turkish border on the ready to massacre the Kurds in Syria, Erdogan says let them die, we will not help with their defense.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN SEES A COUP BEHIND EVERY MOSQUE

Erdogan, the devil incarnate, a Muslim Brotherhood stalwart, has now turned Turkey into a Radical Islamic State. Nationalization of the press, suppression of free speech, eliminating suspects, including elitists, intellectuals, poets, imans, foreigners, including everybody who does not tow the word of allah or support his autocratic rule.

Blaming the coup on an old guy living in the Pennsylvania woods, demanding the United States turn him over or else is the most bizarre accusation, but expected from someone with limited mental capacity. Turkey is now run by the same thugs that toppled Egypt’s Morsi. One thing stands out here, Turkey is a member of Nato. Obama has not weighed in on the Turkish situation because, like Erdogan, Obama is a secret member of the Brotherhood.

Remember his reaction when the General al-Sisi interrupted Morsi’s reign of suppressing the freedoms of its citizens. Obama went beserk, stopped military aid, halted imports and pulled our Diplomatic core. This did not happen in Turkey and we know why. Obama is one of them. obamamaskisis

TURKEY – THE GHOST OF ATATURK WATCHES A FAILED COUP – JIHADISTS TAKE CONTROL

UPDATE: Tensions rise between the JIHADIST ERDOGAN and the United States. Erdogan plays the role of Stalin, using the coup to round up adversaries. Sharia Law is not far behind. Contrary to popular belief the coup appears to have boosted Erdogan’s popularity. However, we don’t think this will last as a clamp down on FREEDOMS will increase. Click here for the sad news from Ralph Peters; Turkey’s last hope dies. Friday night’s failed coup was Turkey’s last hope to stop the Islamization of its government and the degradation of its society.  Reflexively, Western leaders rushed to condemn a coup attempt they refused to understand. Their reward will be a toxic Islamist regime at the gates of Europe. Expect a Political Response from the Obama/Kerry Axis. The United States is now between a rock and a hard place. Military sorties from Turkey are done. ISIS has been given free reign to crush its opponents

Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency says detention orders have been issued for 53 more judges and prosecutors while 52 military officers have been rounded up for their alleged roles in the failed coup.

The reports Sunday followed an intensive crackdown against the judiciary and the military in the wake of the botched coup Friday night against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Officials say about 3,000 soldiers, including officers, are already in detention. Almost a similar number of judges and prosecutors have been dismissed.

How many times have we repeated, “throw Turkey out of NATO.” Now the question may be asked, particularly after the attempted coup, does Obama have the intestinal fortitude to do it. We remind you that Turkey blames the world for its ills, but now they directed their ire at the United States. They demand we hand over the Muslim Cleric, Fethullah Gulen.  residing in the hills of Pennsylvania as the culprit; this one man instigated the coup from far and wide according to the dog, Erdogan. In a televised speech, Erdogan said Turkey had never refused any request by the U.S. to extradite “terrorists” and invoked Washington and Ankara’s relationship as “strategic partners” in an effort to force the return of Fethullah Gulen.

As noted by the previous post, Democracy has been eroded by the despot who sees a spy, a coup, an enemy, a secularist behind every tree. Well yesterday, a bunch of military men failed in a brazen attempt to topple the dictator. Obviously they did not have an adequate plan and failed miserable; unfortunately for the Turkish people who now must bow to the Muslim Brother Hood aficionado.

This is not the end of the story; more attempts will occur before the decade is out. Kemal Ataturk must be rolling over in his grave. 

Why is Turkey in Nato? That is an important question. A Muslim country with a sliver of Christians, actually two tenths of a percent (.0002) or 200,000 out of a population of 80 million.

Freedom of the press has been stamped out. A government takeover by an autocratic regime.

Zaman newspaper: Seized Turkish daily ‘now pro-government’

Turkey’s biggest newspaper, Zaman, has published an edition carrying pro-government articles, two days after being taken over by authorities.

On Friday, a court ruled that Zaman, previously linked to an opponent of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, should now be run by administrators.

Its last edition under old ownership on Saturday said Turkey’s press had seen one of its “darkest days”.

But that isn’t all, we have seen this coming. Erdogan has unleashed a tirade on the Kurds who make up a substantial number of citizens living in Turkey – approximately 20,000,000. Turkey is afraid of them breaking away. Kurds in Turkey and Iraq have defended themselves against outside forces, particularly the Iraqi shias and the pro-Assad forces.

Christian shrines are non existent; Hagia Sophia has been turned into a museum. Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg a former Christian patriarchal basilica (church), later an imperial mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as an Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople,[1] except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire.
