To calm things down a little bit..
Basedas2 is totally right about one thing.
Greek hate Islam because of Turkey.
The connect muslims with what has happened here in Greece.
You should know that Greece as it is today was conquered by Turks for 400 years.
And I will tell you my own story to make things more clear.
One and a half year ago, I was christian.
And very much devoted. I had in mind the same things about Islam like the rest of the western world.
My grand-grandparents came from pontos PONTOS. They were kicked out from there in 1922.
Many of the Greeks that lived there died on their way back to Greece.Many were killed. Even women and children. Many were sent in what we call amele tabour, they forced them to work for Turkey with very bad conditions, till they died perhaps.
So since i was little i heard so many stories from my own people about what Turks did to us. Naturally i didn't have the best impression. And to make things worse, school provides all that thing and sometimes even fanatize us. You can imagine now what kind of idea almost all Greeks have when it comes to Turkey. And they always connect that image with Islam. How i changed my belief is a different story. Alhamdulillah for that.
But to change the rest of them and to make them understand that war of that time and Islam is a different thing, it is very very very difficult.
What i face most of the times when someone realises that i am Greek and muslim is something weird. First they suppose that i have turkish or arabic origin and then when they understand that i am Greek, they wonder how i can forget the history of my country.
Even at the beginning of our site about Islam, we have encoutered threats and things like that.
We try to keep a low profile and talk only about Islam. This is what matters the most.
:sl: Hope you like the site more as you go on reading further.
