BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – Some 200 Palestinian Christians have demonstrated against the sale of Church land by the Greek Orthodox Church to Israelis, in East Jerusalem’s Jaffa Gate, on Saturday.

Demonstrators called on Greek Orthodox Patriarch, Theophilos III and his synod, to resign and replace the Greek clergy with an Arab one.

Demonstrators accuse the Patriarch of contributing to Israeli plans to “Judaise” Jerusalem and betraying Jerusalem’s Christians in selling land considered of communal importance to Christians.

It is absolutely disgusting how the Greek clergy in the Orthodox Patriarchate are conducting themselves , like true Trojan Horse for Israeli land usurpers. For more than 20 years , especially under this weak-minded , almost imbecile fraudster Theofilos III , who has no business presiding over Palestinians , himself being a Greek import , desensitized fully from his local flock. Most of the imports are betraying their office , acting as tools of Zionist expansion through usurpation. Get them thrown out!!! Send them to their cells in the monastery!!!
