Turkish Red Crescent sends aid to Greek Orthodox community
« on: April 14, 2011, 08:27:19 PM »
Kizilay, the Red Crescent in Turkey, sent eight tons of food aid to the Greek Orthodox community in Beyoglu district this week.

From the article:
Quote
(Kızılay Chairman Tekin Küçükali) stated: “As a group we do not believe that pain has a religion, color or race. Pain is pain. The Turkish Red Crescent Society was established to prevent pain and suffering in our nation..."

God be praised!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

What aid would the Greeks in turkey Require and why.....Reading the Article
must mean, there's major discrimination against them in employment,that
the Red Crescent had to step in and help ,to prevent a world outcry of letting some of there
population starve to death or something.....Just thinking out loud here....

Alhamdulillah!
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Not a surprising news when we remember that the general election is approaching.  ;D

Government-affiliated organizations do such works of charity because most of the Turks (undereducated ones) support a party in return for financial contributions/provisions. I hope the Greek minority in Turkey is clever and mature enough not to sell their votes.

Most Muslims consider this a sign of Islamic superiority and the supposed triumph of the "crescent" over the cross.

Isn't it more interesting that an Islamist party rushes to grant Christian minorities their rights?  ;D

BTW, the newspaper in question belongs to an anti-Christ named Gulen. It is rather saddening to see a priest of the EP speak highly of the Islamist party in Turkey, which supports Neo-Ottomanism. When I see these kinds of things, I feel a strong desire to be an "unchurched" Christian.  :'(
