BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Palestinian Archbishop Atallah Hanna issued a statement on Friday that denounced the latest Israeli attack on the Syrian capital city of Damascus.

The Archbishop of the Antiochian Orthodox Church of Sebastia, said that the Israeli attack on Syria’s sovereignty was a flagrant aggression against the Arab world and Palestine in particular.

He said this latest Israeli attack comes at a time when nations like Israel and the United States are conspiring against the Palestinian cause.

He expressed his full solidarity with Syria and that the attack on its soil was an attack on Palestine as well: “Damascus and Jerusalem are inseparable twins.”

Archbishop Hanna has been outspoken critic of Israel for several years, especially regarding the ongoing issues with Palestine.

You certainly know that Hamas (Muslim Brotherhood) has the majority at the Palestinian assembly and that they are true blue Islamists who OPENLY backed al-Nusra/HTS (al-Qaeda) in Syria…
Do you think that this bishop red the Coran? Maybe did he missed Surat-9 :

And frankly, a Christian siding with Muslims against the Jews? He must be a serious idiot! Especially when the #1 party is into radical Islam and terrorism.

Does he speaks about Hamas harassment of Pali Christians too? Most of them have been forced to move to Zone-C or East-Jerusalem (both under full Israeli control) and even in Israeli settlements, to avoid Hamas harassment, violences and even murders! Viva Islamist agenda!
The Palestinian “cause” is a fraud, even Pali leaders publicly acknowledged it, and so did king Hussein and Hafez al-Assad! Even a Hamas leader revealed the truth :

I was finally able to find ancient “Palestine” on a map in a libraary, right next to maps of the Planet Krypton and Tolkien’s Middle Earth.

Christians Support Palestinian cause and were the First to organize against the Zionist state which is why we are subject to your lame posts. Zionist have destroyed more mosque and churches ,holy shrines than isis and rebels in Syria and Iraq. Don’t count on Zionist state to publish their dirty deeds or Christian Zionist to seek the truth. I do not expect you to either because you are a brainwashed and truly flawed individual.
