“He has stated as a reason for his actions that he was angry and cursed because a Norwegian man had set fire to the Koran, without the police having done anything about it… Of course the police did nothing about it, because Norway is not a Sharia state, not yet anyway, and the burning of any book, while a despicable and stupid act, is not illegal. This migrant assumes that Norway should be, and should now become, a Sharia state.” – Translation from Norwegian, “Norway: Muslim migrant sets fire to two churches in revenge for alleged Qur’an-burning by Norwegian” – Jihad Watch, March 24th, 2020.

The seeds of this hatred are spread, beginning at primary schools, through books printed by the Ministry of National Education portraying Christians as enemies and traitors. The indoctrination continues through newspapers and television channels in line with state policies. And of course, the sermons at mosques and talk at coffee houses further stir up this hatred… And even more disturbing is the fact that the perpetrators are either not caught, or not brought to account even when they are caught…” – Journalist Seyfi Genç, quoted by Uzay Bulut in “Attacks on Christian cemeteries alarm Turkey’s Christians” – Ahval, March 14th, 2020.
