Stella L. Jatras comments on recent developments in Greece and Southern Europe.
Yesterday I received a call from my friend in Ottawa who said that one of the Greek publications wrote that Greece’s Muslim population at one time was at 1%. Today, it is at 10%. Within three to four decades, the Muslim population will have achieved 30 to 40%.
Not only is the Greek government (past and present) not doing anything to stop this insanity, but they appear to be facilitating the job of the Islamization of Greece by having granted Saudi Arabia authorization to build a mosque in Athens. I understand, and I may be wrong, that they will be building their mosque near the Athens airport which would give the incoming flight passengers the impression that they were landing in an Islamic country instead of a Christian one. Furthermore, the present government has given permission to build an Islamic Center in Athens. The Greek government is undoubtedly aware of the accusation that Greece is the only Western country that does not have a mosque in their capital and has bowed to pressure, but that excuse would be letting them off too lightly.
What is it about reciprocity the Greek government doesn’t understand? For that matter, I can include the U.S. government and other Western nations as well. The Greek government, if it had any gumption at all, should have said, “You can build your mosque in Athens when we can build our church in Riyadh,” the capital of Saudi Arabia. This same Canadian friend sent me the following quote many years ago:
“Yugoslavia is only the beginning of the latest phase. What the enemies of Christendom want is another 1914, or another 1939, or something more horrific and devastating. For the Mediterranean region, their aim is to destroy the Christian physical presence from the Danube to Cyprus. In the Caucasus, their aim is to annihilate the Christians from the Northern Caucasus to Armenia; in East-Africa, their aim is to physically demolish the Christians from the Southern Sudan and Northern Ethiopia to Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
“I wish I could take credit for those words, but I cannot. They come from a friend in Ottawa who shares my frustrations and the pain for what Islam is doing to Christians, specifically Orthodox Christians, and the destruction of our culture and religion. It took the Greeks 400 years to throw off the Islamic yoke; it took the Serbian people almost 500 years. The poor Albanian Christians are still living under Islam after 600 years and it took the Armenians even centuries longer than that to rid themselves of their Islamic masters. Sensing that the time is ripe, armed with the wealth provided by oil and encouraged by nearly a century of fratricide among the Christian nations, the Islamic Horde is once again on the march against Christianity; this time there may be no salvation.
It was this Ottawa friend who called me at 2:00 a.m. to tell my husband and me that the Croats were driving out Serbs from their native Krajina. He kept saying over and over again, “This is the worst possible news. This is the worst possible news!” and I could hear the anguish in his voice.
And he was right.
