Metropolitan Anthimos sends strong message to Turkish Minority: "They have not been integrated, our perspective must change"

In the wake of the 2024 European Parliament elections, the success of the FEP Party has sparked significant reactions across Greece. Metropolitan Anthimos of Alexandroupolis declared that the success of the FEP Party poses a significant threat to Greece, citing the insufficient integration of the minority population in the region and the need to change perspectives towards them.

These remarks by Metropolitan Anthimos underscore the stance of Greece on national and minority policies. Greek church leaders, particularly archbishops and metropolitans, have often drawn attention with their anti-Turkish and anti-Islamic statements. Such declarations not only target the Turkish minority, threatening them directly, but also pose a danger to regional and global peace.

Previously, the Metropolitan's hate-filled remarks aimed at Islam and its prophet had elicited strong reactions from the entire Islamic world. Such rhetoric fuels religious and ethnic tensions and undermines social harmony. Respect for human rights is a fundamental necessity, and protecting these rights is crucial for maintaining societal peace.

Developing policies that support the integration of minorities in Greece and prevent marginalization is essential for the country's internal stability and international peace. The results of the European Parliament elections could serve as a turning point for all parties involved in this regard, and not for perceptions of national threat.
