Turkey Nationalizes All Christian Churches

[Express UK] President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has taken control of six churches in the war-torn southeastern city of Diyarbakir in his latest move to squash freedom of speech and religious movement. 
The state-sanctioned seizure is just the latest in a number of worrying developments to come out of increasingly hardline Turkey, which is in advanced talks with the EU over visa-free travel for its 80 million citizens.
Included in the seizures are Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churches, one of which is over 1,700 years old.

Let the murders commence. Yet they're soooo tolerant, right? They're moderate right up to the point that they're cutting your head off.

Hagia Soohia will turned into a mosque soon, if not already.

Turkey is no NATO ally. Not while occupying northern Cyprus.

Turkey facilitated the invasion of
so-called migrants. Where was NATO in stemming the tide of illegals.

Pray for the breakup of Turkey or
kurdistan and an expanded Armenia.
Lay the blame at Pres Erdoyan's feet.

Erdogan.lol, if the Turks could see a few years into the future they'd run this guy out on a rail, then again, maybe they wouldn't.

Possible retaliation for Vatican recognizing the Armenian genocide.
