NNA - "In 1934, Ataturk converted the Hagia Sophia Church to a museum that bore witness to the convergence of East and West....Christianity and Islam. However, its conversion today into a mosque is a forgery of history, a denial to convergence and a pretext for Israel to transform Al-Aqsa Mosque into Solomon's Temple...Will the East and West now realize the value of Lebanon, a country where civilizations and religions meet?" tweeted Free Patriotic Movement Chief, MP Gebran Bassil, on Sunday.
