Turkish protestors are demanding that Hagia Sophia be transformed into a Mosque - NBC News. This development seems to follow from the success of the 2012 nationalistic-Islamic film Fetih 1453 (Conquest 1453) which tells the story of the fall of Constantinople to the Turks in 1453. Thus once more the great church of Constantinople, which is now a museum, is under threat and its mosaics may yet again be removed from view.
