GREECE: Golden Dawn Far-Right Protest Athens' Mosque

 

Supporters and members of the Greek Neo-Nazi party, Golden Dawn, attended a marching protest against the construction of a Mosque in central Athens.


Thirteen years after the project was announced by the Greek government, an architect for the construction of the Mosque has finally been chosen. Five previous attempts to find an architect were halted due to hostile reactions of extremist and fanatical Greek Orthodox Christians. In order to pray, the Muslim community is currently forced to use unsuitable apartments. The construction of a Mosque will provide the Muslims of Athens with an appropriate and safe environment in which to worship.

The Mosque will be constructed without a minaret in an attempt to minimize the reaction among fanatical Christians.
During the protest march, the supporters of the far-right Golden Dawn shouted slogans against Kemal Ataturk. Ataturk is the most relevant figure in Turkey’s modern history. Meanwhile, Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu has been in Athens since Friday, attending meetings with Greek officials.
