Islam in Romania

Recommended Posts

So if life gets tough for you in western Europe, viva România!

Interesting to read Nicolae Ceaușescu had a close relationship with Muslims countries like Iran, was anyone else aware of this?

I used to live in Romania. I lived there for around 12 years. The article exaggerates things a bit, it's not like you see mosques around every corner in Bucharest (Romania's capital).

Sure it's not as bad as in Poland where everybody is against Islam.

Mainly because Romania was part of the Ottoman Empire, and so Islamic culture gained some sort of acceptance several centuries ago. In Poland that never happened.

As for Ceausescu, he was a communist, and you know that that the core tenants of Communism are supportive of atheism. E.g. in the Soviet Union they burned down hundreds of churches.

So I'm not too sure... Maybe his friendship to Iran was on a pragmatic basis?
