“Our minarets are our bayonets,Our domes are our helmets, Our mosques are our barracks. We will put a final end to ethnic segregation. No one can ever intimidate us. “If the skies and the ground were to open against us, If floods and volcanoes were to burst, We will not turn from our mission. My reference is Islam.”
Tayyip Regep Erdogan, then Mayor of Istanbul, 1997.
Dozens of new mosques in Kosovo, as well as the rebuilt of all the mosques from the period of the Ottoman occupation, are financed through one sole donor, – Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA).
Resurrecting the cruelest empire ever: Erdogan as sponsor of Albanian terror over the Christians in Kosovo and supports ISIS in desruction of all Middle Eastern non extreme Islamic states .
Millions of euros are flowing from Turkey to Kosovo “through illegal routes, bypassing banks,” according to the Pristina-based Albanian language daily Zeri.
Moreover, this media outlet said that Recep Erdogan’s authorities are using this to “launder money.”
The paper says millions are arriving in Kosovo “but not as investments or to help the economy, or fund projects, but to rebuild religious structures.”
“Most of the investments undoubtedly expose Erdogan’s major money laundering via Kosovo,” writes Zeri in an article it said is being published “after a two-month investigation.”
Dozens of new mosques in Kosovo “as well as the renovation of the ones built during the Ottoman Empire” are financed through one big donor, the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA), states the paper, and points out that the agency was established by the Turkish government, and is directly managed “by the embassy in Turkey.”
(at the same time, similar to Palmyra or Maaloula monastery in Syria, ancient Orthodox Christian relics and monasteries were simply blown and flatered; an old Christain tradition is being deleted by the aggressive Albanian and Turkish savages)
The project of ‘Kosovo’ central Mosque, size: 60.000 sqm
“TIKA keeps its finances secret in most cases, since there is no official data on how much money is being invested. There is suspiction that the money is being brought in illegally and not via bank accounts,” said the article, and added that a list the daily’s reporters had seen at the Central Bank of Kosovo showed TIKA has invested less than three million euros in Kosovo from 2009 until 2014 – out of that 1.2 million in the Sinan Pasha mosque in Prizren alone.
From 2011 until now TIKA and several other Turkish investors also renovated about 30 mosques and religious structures “from the Ottoman period.”
The paper adds that TIKA is exempt from paying taxes in Kosovo and employs only workers from Turkey.
Turkey was among the first countries to recognize Kosovo, and Erdogan has been on several occasions reported as openly “lobbying for Kosovo.”
Also, the Turkish president caused a stir two years ago in Prizren when he said that “Kosovo is his second country.”
The then Turkish prime minister said that the cultures of Turkey and Kosovo may be different, but that their citizens belong to the same country.
This was followed by a harsh reaction from the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the public in Serbia, but Erdogan’s cabinet announced that there will be no apology and that his statement was “misinterpreted.” It was announced later that the the statement was incorrectly translated and that Erdogan did not say that “Kosovo is Turkey, and Turkey is Kosovo.”
On the other hand, so called Kosovo authorities (i.e. Albanians) is said to be ”Turning Blind Eye to Illegal Mosques” and (quote) :
A survey of Kosovo municipalities by Balkan Insight has revealed that more than 100 mosques have been built without planning permission in the past ten years.
To date, action has been taken against just one illegal mosque and local authorities told Balkan Insight they are hesitant about committing themselves to removing such buildings in the future.
Kosovo’s municipal authorities continue to ignore the growing number of illegally built mosques, which now total more than a hundred.
According to Albanian invaders, five years ago, even before the Turkish ‘ivolvement’, there were:
|Mosques in Numbers: According to the BIK, Kosovo has 660 mosques.|
|Of these, 607 are active, 25 are being built and 28 are inactive.These figures were collected in December 2010, and a further 20 mosques have been under construction in 2011.Prizren – 77 mosques
Urosevac – 61 mosques
Pristina – 53 mosques
Gjilane – 37 mosques
Djakovica – 34 mosques
Kosovska Mitrovica – 17 mosques
Pec, anciet seat of Serbian Orthodox Patriarchy – 26 mosques
Over 600 Mosques for the population of less than two million?
Before the very eyes of the so called democratic world, who claps ‘the development of Kosovo democracy’ majority of Christian traces were destroyed, and the Ottoman empire has been rebuilt..
Do you really thing they will stop in Balkans?
