No Country for Old Santa

(Haberturk Newspaper, 31 December 2010)

Twenty members of the Anatolian Youth Association gathered in
front of the main building of Istanbul University and read a press
notice which stated that they condemned New Year's celebrations
and wanted to stress their opposition to the beliefs of anyone
celebrating it. University student Güven Gündüz, who read the
press statement by starting with an Islamic prayer, said that
'New Year's celebrations are an effort to impose Western cultural
imperialism on Moslems.'  He added that the claim that New Year's
night is the birthday of  Jesus  does not reflect the truth. After
the announcement they read verse 162 of the Enam section of the
Koran. One of the students then sprayed a blow-up Santa Claus
with black paint before stabbing it a number of times with a knife
he took from his pocket.
