Locals reacted with anger after a Holy Cross was destroyed by unknown vandals earlier in the week on the Greek island of Lesvos.

The symbol of Orthodoxy was erected by a religious group in September at the rocky shore of Apelli, beneath the emblematic castle of Lesvos’ capital, Mytilene.

Some local groups opposed the installation of the cross at the time claiming it was offensive to migrants who are not Christian.

An NGO called “Movement for Coexistence and Communication in the Aegean” said that it was inappropriate to turn a Christian symbol “to a tool of aspiring crusaders.” It also argued that the cross was placed there to prevent migrants from swimming.

A few days later, the cross was found destroyed.

“Why did the symbol of Orthodoxy bother them? I am sorry as a Greek,” said a local resident.

Another said that the culprits broke the cross with hatred. “The cross was made of cement…Somebody went over with a sledge hammer and broke it. That was hatred.”

A crucifix standing on the top of the rocky shores of Appeli on Greece’s island of Lesbos, was destroyed by unknown vandals on Sunday night.

The cross was reportedly built in honour of the refugees who died at sea, footage from Wednesday shows the reaction of locals to the vandalism.

The cross that was built back in September had caused a reaction from a local association claiming that it disrupts the balance of cohabitation between locals and refugees of other religions that live on the island. Despite the outrage of several groups, some locals feel outraged with the vandalism.

“Who does the cross bothers, the cross which is the symbol of orthodoxy?” stated local resident Panagiotis Axarlis, adding that “I feel sorry as a Greek.”

For Stelios Agas, another local resident, this is an action of hatred since “in order for it to get broken, it had to be with hatred,” because “this cross has iron inside, it is cement and somebody went with a sledge hammer or something like that and broke it.”

Local residents used rocks from the area to get the cross standing again. They say that it is a temporary measure and that a large cross should be put up in its place.


But…Locals in Lesvos raise Christian Cross again · Greek City Times

 

The Christian Cross that was taken down in Lesvos after co-existence groups claimed it was offensive to non-Christians on the island, has been raised again by locals who were outraged it was pulled down.

As reported by Greek City Times this week, the large cement Christian cross, which was built on the rocky shore of Apelli, under the castle of Mytilene in Lesvos, in honour of people that have lost their lives in the shore there was pulled down as a co-existence group based on the island claimed it was offensive to migrants who are not Christian.

“This act is illegal, unsightly (reminiscent of a grave) but mostly offensive to the symbol of Christianity, a symbol of love and sacrifice, not racism and intolerance,” wrote the NGO Group to the island’s Mayor.

Locals were outraged the Cross symbolising Christian faith was pulled down and said it’s unacceptable behaviour as the majority of people who reside on Lesvos are Greek Orthodox.

“That is an act of hate, whoever did this used a heavy object to deliberately pull it down,” said local resident Stelios Agas.

Locals who have just used rocks and pebbles to lift the Crucifix said they are now going to raise money to have the holy Christian symbol reinstalled properly.

  1. When are you people in Europe going to understand that your breathing offends muslims. When you ALL STOP breathing the MUSLIMS will then be satisfied.

  2. HERE IS THE SPEECH:
    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides
    the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog,
    there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries,
    improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of
    commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet
    rule or live.
    A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of
    its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must
    belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a
    concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has
    ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid
    qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of
    those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from
    being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has
    already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step;
    and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the
    science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe
    might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
    Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol. II

    If you will remember anything about the historical significance of Islam (its political effect), then remember this, namely, that over the centuries no faith, no body of ideas, no society of practitioners of beliefs other than those of Islam under Islam’s badge of pride has been killing the Westerners and attacking the symbols of Western life with poignant hate and deliberate intent to destroy the West for being itself. KHAZOUK.

  4. Muslims will never be happy, they want a world caliphate yet they still kill each other over their ideals from different secs of Islam, Sunnis verse Shites have been fighting each other over interpretation of the Koran, nothing in this world would ever make Muslims thankful for what they have been given, stolen and or killed for,

  5. Sharia Law states that any land that once Islamic is always rightfully Islamic. Therefore, all those “refugees” have a right to be there and the Greeks need to remember their place.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
