Islamophobia in Greece

Some Muslims in Athens were heckled and had eggs thrown at them during Eid al-Adha prayers.  But at least one group was able to pray in peace, near Athens University.  Apparently there are no "official" mosques in Athens, so Muslims pray at community centers, in homes, etc.  There has been antagonism to mosques being built, but the current Greek Orthodox Archbishop is supporting the Muslims, so there should be a mosque soon.
