...compare Egypt,

In Egypt they renovate our churches, they do not convert them into mosques

“I made a comparison, saying how blessed I am because the status of our churches is not changed and they even give the licence almost as soon as I submit a request for renovation.

Not only do I get the licence immediately, but also the State provides assistance for the renovation many times, whatever I need, as has been the case of St. Catherine in Suez and of the Church of St. George which is shown on Egyptian television just like Cyprus’ state channel", says Patriarch Theodore of Alexandria and All Africa, visiting Cyprus on September 11-18.

"The Turkish government is rapidly converting the Chora Church into a mosque, shortly after the conversion into a mosque of another World Heritage Site, Hagia Sophia.
They installed a drop ceiling, scratched everything out, put plasters on the walls, and painted them in order to cover the wonderful frescoes and mosaics of the church and to erase every Orthodox sign."
