Cross On Greek Shoreline Removed Because it Offends Muslim Refugees

Fact checked
A liberal group has won its battle to demolish a cross on the Greek island of Lesobs, arguing that migrants were "offended" by the cross.

A large Christian cross monument on the Greek island of Lesbos has been leveled to the ground after a group claiming to promote “intercultural co-existence” argued that the cross offends Muslim refugees arriving on the island by boat, according to European reports

The ancient Greek island of Lesbos is today best known as a landing point for African and Muslim migrants arriving by boat and the problems and conflicts that have arisen in connection with the European migrant crisis.

The cross monument was built by Christians on the cliffs of Apellia, beneath the castle of Mytilene, in memory of people who have died in the sea. According to the liberal activist group, however, the cross sent the wrong message to arriving Muslims:

“Muslims escaping persecution in their homelands do not deserve to be greeted with the symbol of the crusades and Western cultural chauvinism when they arrive on European soil for the first time. Many of these refugees are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and the sight of the cross could further exacerbate their symptoms.”

The huge cement Christian cross was demolished earlier this week.

The local newspaper on the island reports that the liberal activist group has also received support from some aid organizations that expressed similar negative opinions about the Christian cross monument.

A letter was sent to the Lesbos’ port authority and mayor, in which the co-existence group falsely claimed that the cross was placed there to prevent migrants from swimming to shore.

“Muslims escaping persecution in their homelands do not deserve to be greeted with the symbol of the crusades and Western cultural chauvinism when they arrive on European soil for the first time,” according to liberal activists.

The letter also stated that the creators of the monument were “aspiring crusaders” with racist and intolerant motives who abused the Christian cross, which should be a symbol of love and sacrifice. And they therefore called for the monument to be demolished.

And that is exactly what happened. Just a few days later, at night, the whole monument was levelled to the ground, without the consultation of the island’s Christian community. The demolished remains of the cross remain as rubble on the site.

The attack by the liberal activist group on the monument and the island’s Christian history has aroused strong reactions in large parts of the local population who believe that the underhand deed goes against the Christian religious beliefs shared by a majority of the inhabitants of Lesbos.

  1. A bullet to the head of every muzzrat & nigger invader is a far better, more intelligent, and less traitorous option.

  2. I would say Christians should be offended by Mosques, which are obviously phallic symbols used in the worship of Priap , an ancient Greek god. The phallus symbol has also been associated with the worship of Lucifer and Sun worship. This offensive symbol should be destroyed as it is not only a reference to male dominance (which offends women) but also a reference to other gods besides Allah, recognized in the Quran as the God of Abraham. Therefore, it is Satan who has deceived the faithful into erecting sun worshiping phallus, which cause the faithful to mock Allah when they worship within.

  3. Good always wins and evil always loses. Once the Democrats are decimated on election day, political correctness will die a slow and painful death.

  4. If the moslems don’t like looking at an ancient device that was used to execute the fictional Jesus Christ, they can bloody well stay in their respective countries
