The head of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem, Archbishop Atallah Hanna, said on Wednesday that Jerusalem is being subject to an “unprecedented conspiracy,” the Middle East Monitor reported.
The archbishop made his comment during a meeting with an Italian delegation that is visiting the Occupied Territories to show their solidarity with the Palestinians and to examine their situation firsthand.
“There is an unprecedented conspiracy against the Christian existence in this holy land,” Archbishop Hanna reportedly told the delegation.
“There is extortion of the churches and a systematic theft of Christian endowments.”
Hanna cited as an example the old Christian buildings in Jerusalem’s Hebrew Gate, stressing that this is one of several similar cases. “The oppression practiced against the Palestinians is targeting all of us.”
In conclusion, the archbishop pointed out that “Jerusalem is subject to oppressive campaigns by the Israeli occupation aimed at erasing its history and marginalizing its Palestinian presence.”
Interesting how the Zionist Christians here in the U.S.A, don’t seem to know that their “Fellow Christians” are facing these problems? Interesting how the “Christians” here in the U.S dont seem to know the basic story of their own bible? It seems pretty stupid really. The Zionist Christian agenda is total opposite of where they should be. You would think that Christians here in America would support the Christians in the Middle East, and not those that killed Christ”but they don’t. Maybe that is the reason the Christian Religion in the U.S is shrinking and becoming a thing of the past?
The headline should say “Jerusalem is subject to oppressive campaigns by the Israeli occupation aimed at erasing its history and marginalizing its Palestinian presence.”
It sounds bad the way you chose to use the first part of the quote without the second.
