Spiegel: Transformation of Hagia Sophia into a mosque directed against Russia


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan exacerbates tensions with Moscow, because the transformation of Hagia Sophia into a mosque is directed against Russia, the German magazine Spiegel writes.


On July 10, 2020, the Turkish authorities showed their disregard for the opinions of other countries. Almost simultaneously, the decisions of the Supreme Court, the State Council and the head of the Turkish state on the annulment of the resolution of 1934, according to which Hagia Sophia received the status of a museum, were followed.

In 1453, Sultan Mehmed II conquered Constantinople and turned the center of Orthodoxy into the Hagia Sophia mosque. Now Erdogan is trying to draw a historical parallel and on July 24, 2020, the mosque should begin to work.

The Russian Orthodox Church is terrified of what happened, because after the fall of Byzantium, it was Moscow that became the defender of Orthodoxy. Greece, where Orthodoxy is enshrined in the Constitution, is openly threatening Turkey. The countries of the Balkan Peninsula also expressed their indignation. Christians around the world, and not only Orthodox, perceived Ankara’s actions as an insult.

Metropolitan Hilarion, vicar of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, reported about "a blow to Orthodoxy." He has no doubt that the re-transformation will definitely affect the attitude of Russia and the entire Christian world towards Turkey. In his opinion, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul has the same meaning as the St. Peter's in Rome. He stressed that the world cultural heritage should not be held hostage political games and personal ambitions.

The World Council of Churches has also criticized Turkey’s actions. The organization, uniting hundreds of millions of believers, talked about "grief and confusion." They believe that Turkey has taken the path of "alienation and separation", deciding to turn the past.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Glushko, in turn, said that there are not many symbols left in the world that can influence the development of mankind, and Hagia Sophia is one of them. Now Moscow expects from Ankara actions to protect the building, as well as that it will remain open to all who wish. Moreover, the US authorities completely share this point of view and call the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque a "bad" decision, writes German media.

    He urgently needs to sell him another S-350. And the Su-57. And Armat a bit. Then, "against Russia," he certainly will not trample.

        It is also possible. However, he will not pay for them.

        And money is sacred for the elite ... for gas, for S-400, tangerines there, tourists ....

            And he does not care? On the contrary, excess loot floats in the hands. The Patriots or S-400 will urgently have to buy, require fighters - interceptors, fraternal help from Trump and Shoigu at the same time, etc. from friends.

            Lafa!

                What a freebie? Turkey is confidently heading forward both in terms of economy and the Armed Forces.

                It’s not a freebie, it’s development assistance, the ability to train troops, get gas, adopt technologies, etc.

    It’s not even “aggression” against Christianity - it’s just a show: my country, my buildings, my will.
    Populism. I did not expect this from such a tough politician. He in my eyes became Trump.

    Erdogan has always been an Islamist. How much can you remind about this. True, some argue that he is a "moderate Islamist." But I have not met such. Is he building his empire? But I always knew that Turkey could never become a stronghold of Islam. There are several reasons for this. It is of a religious nature.
    And the fact that he is not an ally of Moscow is well known in the Kremlin. Temporary travel companion. And by his actions he reduces this time.
    Tourists will not go to the mosque. And this is perfectly understood by everyone in the world. Yes, and tourists will not be allowed into the mosque during prayer. Or will tourists take off their shoes at the entrance?

      There are no allies in nature. Everyone has their own interests. Tourists will go to the mosque! Mecca collects tourists. And religion does not prohibit visiting non-Gentiles churches. And what is the problem of taking off your shoes? Are you taking off your hat in the temple?

        As you wish. I went to the mosque a couple of times. Just a couple of times. The hat is not shoes. Yes, and you can’t look outsiders during prayer. And paintings (frescoes) on the walls should not be. What should a tourist look at? On bent backs?

          Do you know what Jesus and Virgin Mary looked like? Caught them personally? So, all the images are FALSE, and they should not be. Jesus among Muslims is the same prophet as Mohamed. And what to look at in church? For gold and bent backs? On corpses stolen for souvenirs without the desire of the owner and his relatives called holy relics? A hat - not shoes? Do you come in with boots? And then you went to visit God, and not to the drinking buddy on your birthday.

            Well, I heard that too. Of course I do not know and have not seen. But I heard that God is not in stone, but inside everyone. And I do not need a church to communicate with God. Neither a mosque, nor a synagogue, nor a church. And I also do not need a mediator like a bearded priest or a mullah.
            I was in a mosque and in the Church. In my atheistic opinion, the Church has something to look at. Inside the Mosque, I saw only people and did not see God. In the Church, I saw works of Art.
            For life, I do not need either one or the other. But you must admit that the Church has something to see.

            As for Maria, there is a description: a fair-haired (long braids) with a wheat complexion, a slender beauty. Today she is portrayed as a dark-skinned girl in a cap on her head that her hair is not visible! Hide? Christ is an athletic man 178-180 cm tall with a long forked beard, mathematician, poet, philosopher, athlete, great humanist. According to G.A. Zyuganov, "the first communist on Earth" ... At the end of his life, he - the Byzantine emperor, died as a result of a plot of the nobility in the empire. Christ is a real historical character whose biography can also be found in secular chronicles. As for Muslims, they can also be considered Christians (the Prophet Mohamed is no different from Christ) - the difference is only in rites. For example, I cannot immediately, right away, distinguish between a Christian old believer and a Muslim. In addition, Muslim mosques are decorated with the same symbolism as Christian ones: "a crescent with a star." Well, what's the scandal? Islam once stood out from Christianity as a separate religion, as it seems to them (late 16th - early 17th century CE). Now, supposedly a "Muslim country" grabbed an ancient historical monument-temple? If fewer shuffling tourists visit this monument, then perhaps this masterpiece of art will be better preserved for future generations?

                And what is wrong? Fomenko thinks the same way. History from textbooks - the truth of first instance? The banal story is replete with contradictions and "riddles", it is the same version of the past as Fomenko. Only the latter has many questions removed, while the “historians” have a lot of fantasies trying to somehow explain the obvious “mistakes”, or they don’t bother with any evidence there! The strongest "proof" of historians: "to read the secondary school textbook more carefully" - they can still call, humiliate. But this is already an indicator of the culture of the dispute, although, on their part, as a rule, no dispute arises ...

                  Want a cultural argument?
                  You wrote that Islam stood out from Christianity in the 16th century. So now is the 400th year of the Hijra? And in what year did the Turks take Constantinople? A hundred years ago? Or 200?
                  Fomenko’s "blunders" are not explained at all.
                  Was Christ the Byzantine emperor? And when was he? Before the capture of Constantinople by the Turks or after? And now what year is it from the birth of Christ?

                    "At Fomenko and Nosovsky" (at the same time too!) Everything is just rightly explained. Church of St. Sofia was built no earlier than the 16th century from regular-shaped bricks. Suleiman the Magnificent built the temple for the first time of such cyclopean dimensions in history. The next Suleiman 2 strengthened the walls of the temple with special "bulls" made of the same brick. When did brick making technology come about? Here you have the dating of the start of construction. And what "Year of the Hijra" is there - decide for yourself! This is a question for the authors of the Quran. The Turks took Constantinople in 1453, and what does this change in Fomenko’s approach? The middle of the 15th century, after several decades, Suleiman 1 will begin to build a CHRISTIAN temple of huge sizes unprecedented to the village! What are the questions?

                      That is, the Turks took Constantinople in 1453 from the birth of Christ. So when did Christ live?

                        The same authors solved this problem - the date of the birth of Christ. Take the trouble to read the evidence in the book "Tsar of the Slavs" (from the Internet!) - be patient (as I once did!) And at least try to master the first chapter ...

                        I understand that you do not know the answer. Or he does not suit you.
                        One more question. Where according to Fomenko and Nosovsky was Jerusalem and Israel in the time of Christ?

                        In 2004, for the series of books on the “New Chronology”, the creators of the theory were awarded the “Paragraph” antipremia in the nomination Honorary Illiteracy - for "particularly cynical crimes against Russian literature."
                        ------
                        The answers of the authors of the New Chronology to early criticism and subsequent critical publications were extremely selective and unscientific, often accompanied by arguments from Ad hominem. A. T. Fomenko and G. V. Nosovsky have withdrawn from further polemics

                        Surely you know the “new chronology (chrenology)” better than Fomenko and Nosovsky.
                        To discuss with a person, it is necessary that a person knows at least something. As the saying goes, "When you argue with id ... oh, then he probably does the same."
                        ---
                        But I'll try. Not to discuss is useless. Just get the answers. So Christ was born in 1152. And he was a Byzantine emperor. So, now we have 868 from the birth of Christ. The Turks took Constantinople in 1453 (traditional history), that is, in 201 from the Nativity of Christ (new chronology). And the Turks were already Muslims. So, in just 200 years, Islam has broken away from Christianity. And he came to Poitiers. Rapid development.
                        But that is not the question. Who crucified Christ? Jews or Romans? Maybe the Turks.
                        Where at that time was Jerusalem and Israel (according to Fomenko)? Can you indicate their location? And what was in the territory of modern Jerusalem. But all this has answers from Nosovsky. But I want you to fully show your knowledge :-)

                        Still hurt! That's right, Christ was born in 1152. "Turks", as you called the troops of Mehmet 2, took Constantinople in 1453. HX does not argue with this date. Moreover, this campaign coincides with the so-called. the sanitary operation of the Russian troops “in the promised lands,” from which came the threat of epidemics, from which there was a terrible human pestilence in the more northern regions. In addition, it was by this time that the troops of the Empire received a purely military advantage - the so-called. "Damascus steel" from meteorite iron additives - a large meteorite (several hundred tons - I don’t remember exactly) fell in the early 15th century in the vicinity of Yaroslavl. See the work of HX. That the "Turks" who took Constantinople were Muslims, it follows only in your reasoning - the NH (and I!) Does not say this! Not only that, the NH concludes that the city was stormed by Russian imperial troops, and there was no Islam then ... Although, the external attributes of the army (turban, curved sabers, "crescent" on helmets and banners, etc.) to the modern average man seem to be Muslim. Here I will only indicate to possible whistleblowers that the “crescent with a star” is originally Christian symbolism and means (from right to left) “Bethlehem star” and “picture of a solar eclipse”. Is it necessary to explain or is the idea clear?

                        We need to explain everything.
                        These are all nonsense that the author himself refused to defend. And as before, stubborn subversions continue to assert. I said that I defeated Nosovsky and Fomenko 10-15 years ago.
                        The main problem is that not a single fact (FACT) is confirmed. Nosovsky was criticized by everyone: archaeologists, numismatists, historians, astronomers. At least take an interest in astronomy when there was a star of Bethlehem?
                        The most likely reason is

                        a new star in the constellation Orion - between 5 and 3 years BC. e. (according to Chinese and Persian sources)

                        ----
                        So. According to Nosovsky. Jesus was born in 1152 (according to the modern calendar). Jerusalem is located on the site of Istanbul. On the site of present-day Jerusalem was the Arab village of El-Quds. Jerusalem was either taken by the Crusaders, or the Christian Turks. And the Turkish sultan built the Greatest Christian Temple. And Israel itself was on the territory of modern Russia (between the Volga and the Don).
                        I think that not a single normal (NORMAL) person will even discuss these nonsense. Tell that to a Christian and you will be laughed at. Tell a Jew and you will be laughed at. They pray in vain at the Wailing Wall. Tell that to a Muslim ... Well (here the mentality) will be stoned.
                        Do not make those present.

                      Israel was in the metropolis of the Empire, i.e. somewhere between the rivers Oka and Volga. HX explains everything very well - you have not touched on the work of this group for a long time, or did not understand anything at all. Sorry for being blunt! I understand that it’s difficult to immediately take the position of HX with the “baggage” of banal history ...

                      Do not try. I've told. I wrote everything that I wrote, in the hope that normal people would read it. You do not need a textbook and I explained the reason. Textbooks don’t give in a psychiatric hospital.
                      Everything that I wrote was addressed not to you. Do not bother.

                      As always, I met very qualified objections with the "normal and not crazy" ... "Argumentation" is familiar, and it is clear why A.T. Fomenko does not argue with you, the codla of "historians" ...

    And paintings (frescoes) on the walls should not be. What should a tourist look at?

    On Red Square is the Cathedral of St. Basil. Come inside - you will not find "frescoes" with the image of people there! But this is originally the New Jerusalem Temple, then the Intercession Cathedral - a Christian temple! And how, by and large, is it different from a mosque? And tourists do not bypass his attention! The construction time was the second half of the 16th century, the beginning of the next church schism, when Islam stood out as a more ascetic Christianity. By the way, St. Sofia was originally conceived surrounded by four minarets! Ah-ah - it cannot be, do not believe your eyes, Christian!

    Greece, where Orthodoxy is enshrined in the Constitution, is openly threatening Turkey.

    Here it is, threatening. am

    Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called Corfu, where he is on a trip, to the Patriarch of Bartholomew of Constantinople and expressed his "solidarity and support," the Prime Minister’s press service said.

    It remains to wait for an angry reaction from Ukraine.

    ... the transformation of Hagia Sophia into a mosque is directed against Russia ...

    Yes, it can’t be, it's just affiliate games, almost friendly.

    .in 1935 year Hagia Sophia received museum status and was included ...

    And in 2020, the same status, after 85 years of successful use of money by UNESCO "off."
    On the one hand, the internal affairs of a sovereign country, and on the other, another ball in the pocket of dismantling the Turkish republic. What will be next?
    It is possible, for example, to issue new recommendations and interpretations of the Montreux Convention by decree of the Turkish president, otherwise they are also outdated with 1936 years.

    Erdogan has always been an Islamist. How much can you remind about this. True, some argue that he is a "moderate Islamist." But I have not met such. Is he building his empire? But I always knew that Turkey could never become a stronghold of Islam. There are several reasons for this. It is of a religious nature.
    And the fact that he is not an ally of Moscow is well known in the Kremlin. Temporary travel companion. And by his actions he reduces this time.
    Tourists will not go to the mosque. And this is perfectly understood by everyone in the world. Yes, and tourists will not be allowed into the mosque during prayer. Or will tourists take off their shoes at the entrance?

    He was in the three central mosques of Istanbul, once during prayer. No problem. Shoes must be removed without fail, even if there is no prayer. True, tourists are allowed to take shoes with them, I specially took a backpack. Thousands of people leave shoes at the entrance and psychologically I was not ready to leave either, although the mosque’s employees assured that it would never occur to anyone to steal.

    As for Maria, there is a description: a fair-haired (long braids) with a wheat complexion, a slender beauty. Today she is portrayed as a dark-skinned girl in a cap on her head that her hair is not visible! Hide? Christ is an athletic man 178-180 cm tall with a long forked beard, mathematician, poet, philosopher, athlete, great humanist. According to G.A. Zyuganov, "the first communist on Earth" ... At the end of his life, he - the Byzantine emperor, died as a result of a plot of the nobility in the empire. Christ is a real historical character whose biography can also be found in secular chronicles. As for Muslims, they can also be considered Christians (the Prophet Mohamed is no different from Christ) - the difference is only in rites. For example, I cannot immediately, right away, distinguish between a Christian old believer and a Muslim. In addition, Muslim mosques are decorated with the same symbolism as Christian ones: "a crescent with a star." Well, what's the scandal? Islam once stood out from Christianity as a separate religion, as it seems to them (late 16th - early 17th century CE). Now, supposedly a "Muslim country" grabbed an ancient historical monument-temple? If fewer shuffling tourists visit this monument, then perhaps this masterpiece of art will be better preserved for future generations?

    This is how you have to try to find all this nonsense?

    Friends came to the opening day and whispered - jumble! "

    S. Mikhalkov. "Elephant-painter."

    I have one question for you, the one that was asked to the hero of V. Shukshin’s fairy tale “Until the Third Cocks”: “Vanya, where did you get this bad eroticism?” I will already keep silent that Islam, in your words, of course, supposedly came out of Christianity, and even in the 16-17th centuries A.D. Horror! Quiet horror.

    My friend says, breathing a little, where did you study, Goluba - at the Central School of Art?

    A. Ivanov

    It is not a matter of rituals, otherwise all religions of the world would be twins, but in the own philosophy of any religion, including Islam.
    So, among Muslims, the basis of religion is that every step of the faithful, up to his personal life, is painted every minute. This is a bit of a daily routine in the army. This is the first. The second one. The world is in the claws of the devil until it is converted to Islam. Thirdly. Ethical standards are mobile. What was true yesterday can become untrue today. Fourth: fatalism. Everything is written in the book of fate and to go against her will is senseless and sinful. Well, encouragement for obedience. Do not sin, and 13 virgins with inquiries about this are yours, moreover, with free living space. And if you kill an infidel, then the number of ladies as an incentive prize increases to 72. The same is supposed to be lost for faith. Of course, if you take the average Muslim, then, in principle, there is nothing to worry about. He is far from extremism. Complies with general norms, goes to the mosque. But if we are talking about radical Islam, then like any radicalism - it is dangerous. By itself. Yes, even hiding behind, in its own way interpreted by the norms of religion. And the transfer of Sofia is Erdogan’s next step on the path from Ataturk’s reforms. A challenge to the whole Christian world, for which Sofia is something like the Wailing Wall for the Jews. It is impossible to imagine that the Jews converted the Temple of the Holy Sepulcher into a synagogue. This cannot be, because it can never be. But Erdogan crosses the Rubicon easily, he knows that the opponents will wipe off. And they will wipe themselves off

    The temple is the business of believers and the church, which, as you know, is separated from the state. And the believers and the church are silent. This means that they are not interested in this question. Everything else is talk and chatter. Sofia was already decorated as a mosque, but it just didn't work.
