A Pakistani or Syrian or a Nigerian can never be Greek. they can be greek citizens when Pasok ( socialist party )needed their vote ( wink wink) but now they are taken back that.. "previlege".<quoted text>
If they are Greeks then they have the right like any Greek to ask and the city has the right to refuse based on zoning not any other criteria, I believ there is a church near the Akropolis if my memory serves me so why not a mosque? Having said that a mosque should be built in a convenient location accessible to majortiy of muslims and it is not to be a political statement. You know God does not live in mosques they are simply places of worship. The question is why you think it is a political statment to ask for such site? Could be cultural and may be to build smething that contributs to the city atractions. The Red Mosque in Turkey is a famous attraction, no? there are beatiful greek orthodox churches in many arab countries and theyare located in best areas
crisis has it's good points :)
let's be honest.. an african can never be greek just like a greek can never be .. say.. sudanese.. or .. Chinese or whatever so strikingly different and go there and DEMAND to build a Parthenon or Maria Virgin church next to a mosque or a ..totem or a pagoda.
it's called .. first self respect that leads to respect for the"other" much more so if the "other' is the host.
demand is the key word that shows the real motives. It's ok, dont compare Canada and the USA with countries and nations in europe.. muliticulturalism is not the foundation of european nations. In fact.. nation in european terms is the antonym of multi-culti.
of course I cant help noticing a devious attempt to change this.. all over.
so can christians go and build a stonehenge, a parthenon, a church or a colosseum near Kaaba???
THAT'S THE QUESTION proVeritas.:)
