Turkey was once the model of a secular, modern Muslim democracy.Today, Christians are being purged from that NATO country.
The most notable symbol of that transformation is the Hagia Sophia.
Once a Christian church, it was sacked by Muslim invaders and turned into a mosque. Under reformer Ataturk, it was a transformed into a museum over 80 years ago.
But this week, the Hagia Sophia was effectively turned back into a mosque with the approval of Turkey's Islamist leader.
As the Gatestone Institute reports:
"Turkey is not converting churches into mosques because there is a need for more mosques... The message conveyed ... is that Turkey is an Islamic state and no other religion is tolerated."
The ethnic cleansing of Christians from "modern" Turkey proves that jihad is hardwired into the Koran. We see that all over the world.
