Hagia Sophia, the West and Islam - The other side of jihad

by Archbishop of Albania Anastasios

The conversion of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque brought to the fore the West's troubled relationship with Islam. Usually, in such a position on the problem, a special tone is given to political-military Islam, especially radical Islam. While, directly, or indirectly, the religious nature of Islam is relegated to second place. It is the religious nature, however, which feeds, inspires and innervates political Islam (with specific metaphysical principles and beliefs, with a system of dogmatic official positions, ethical codes, a text that is sacred, of an absolute, non-negotiable prestige).
