Saudi Aramco On How The Parthenon Was Once A Mosque

Interestingly, I came across an article tonight ,published in the official publication of Saudi Aramco, the Saudi-American Petroleum Giant that pumps,drills and exports some 90 percent of Saudi Oil, or rather , the American company that controls the majority of the world's oil supply. In its own words ,Saudi Aramco is a fully integrated international petroleum company with the world's largest oil reserves - over one quarter of the global total.

The article makes loud mention of how the Parthenon was once a Mosque, and on how old prints used to depict minarets around Athens' most cherished architectural wonder.

Isn't it interesting, and timely, that the official organ of the fabulously wealthy and influential Saudi Aramco has such a fixation on Islam in Greece?

Considering the growth of multiculturalism from abroad in Greece, it makes perfect sense that a transnational American corporation would target the common and traditional religious make-up of Greece by advancing arguments favoring the bygone days of Turkish occupation.
