'You Are Finished!' Threaten Vandals Against Church in Turkey

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that on Sunday, February 23, 2019, threatening graffiti messages were found on the main entrance door of the Armenian Church of the Holy Mother of God (Balat Surp Hreshdagabet) in Istanbul, Turkey. According to a statement issued by the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople, “There were written racist and hate speeches in both English and Arabic [saying] you are finished!”

The church’s security cameras obtained footage of the incident and the church administration filed a criminal complaint at the Fatih District Police Department. The statement continued, “It is our greatest wish that such events do not happen again and the criminals are punished.”

The incident has drawn widespread condemnation from across Turkey’s Armenian community, who are frequently harassed and targeted through hate crimes. The Armenian Genocide from 1915-1917 continues to haunt those few who remain in Turkey, as both nationalists and Islamists view Armenians as an inherent threat to the constitutionally protected status of Turkishness.
