Forgotten Christians
By ANDERS STRINDBERG • May 24, 2004

Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” is playing to full houses in the Syrian capital Damascus. Watching it here turns out to be much the same as watching it on opening night in New York—customarily rowdy moviegoers observe a reverent silence, the usual sound of candy wrappers is replaced by sobbing and gasping, and, at the end of it all, the audience files out of the theater in silence and contemplation. Many of those watching the movie on this occasion are Palestinian Christian refugees whose parents or grandparents were purged from their homeland—the land of Christ—at the foundation of Israel in 1948.

Greek Orthodox Archbishop Claims Israeli Occupation Must Vanish
By A. Papapostolou on October 3, 2010 In Asia, News

Greek Orthodox Archbishop in Beit-ul-Moqaddas, Atallah Hanna said that Israeli Occupation must end immediately.

The archbishop calls on all christians to unite with brothers in the Al-Quds Holy Land churches and with all Muslim brothers especially Palestinians to stand against the Israeli occupation.
He made the remarks in a meeting with a delegation of Irish and Palestinian groups in Al-Quds.

“Al-Quds church is the mother of all churches and is the first Christian center in the world so Al-Quds is a precious place for Christians.”

He also expressed his hope that the Palestinian people would unite and regain their rights after liberating their land.

Justice won’t be established in Palestine unless Israeli occupation ends and Palestinians get their rights. Israeli occupation must vanish and all its tyranny and suppression must end, he added. Christians in Palestine are not separated from the Palestinian nation, the Archbishop noted.

Father Atallah Hanna, Archbishop in Occupied Jerusalem slams Israel’s actions during Easter and Holy Saturday holiday
MAY 7, 2013 BY OCCUPIEDPALESTINE 0 COMMENTS

[ PIC 07/05/2013 - 11:03 AM ]


images_News_2013_05_07_hanna-0 _300_0[1]OCCUPIED JERUSALEM,(PIC)– Father Atallah Hanna, Archbishop of the Palestinian Orthodox Church in occupied Jerusalem, strongly denounced the Israeli arbitrary measures that were taken last Saturday against the Christian worshipers as they were commemorating the Easter day and the Holy Saturday in the old city.

In a press release on Monday, Father Hanna said that physically assaulting the clergy and the faithful and preventing them from marching to the Church of the Resurrection were aimed to thwart the Orthodox holidays in Jerusalem.

He added that such Israeli actions target the Christian presence in the holy city and are part of the Jewish campaign against the Christian and Islamic religious events.

No such thing as justice in the Holy Land, Palestinian Church leaders tell the Irish

“We need only one thing, to be protected by the world against the crimes of &#8232;Israel”

No such thing as justice in the Holy Land, Palestinian Church leaders tell the Irish
Outside the Irish Parliament. Left to Right: Alan Lonergan (SADAKA), Constantine Dabbagh, Fr Manuel Musallam, John Ging, Archbishop Theodosius Hanna

We are not here as politicians, they said. We come as representatives of the various churches in Jerusalem.

But the trio from the Holy Land showed they were more than a match for Western politicians who fancy they know all about the Middle East.

Archbishop Theodosius Hanna (Greek Orthodox Church), Monsignor Manuel Musallam (Latin Catholic) and Mr Constantine Dabbagh (Executive Director of the Middle East Council of Churches) are courageous human rights defenders and spiritual leaders from Palestine. They have just completed a tour of Ireland to raise awareness of the situation in their homeland under Israeli military occupation and the plight of the dwindling Christian community there.

“We need only one thing, to be protected by the world against the crimes of Israel,” was their central message.

The week-long visit was arranged by SADAKA, the Ireland Palestine Alliance, and part funded by Trócaire, the overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland, and Christian Aid.

After delivering a special Christmas greeting from the Holy Land to the president and the people of Ireland, the Palestinian church leaders were able to establish a mutual understanding with President Mary McAleese that peace is more than an absence of violence –“the only lasting peace is a just peace”.

During their visit the churchmen described the Israeli occupation as the “crucifixion of the nation of Palestine”, and made a plea to all of Ireland’s leaders to “act and intervene, or nothing will change”.

They met with other Irish government ministers and the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs, whom they briefed on the reality of life in the Holy Land, where the Israeli occupation denies even freedom of religion. A transcript of the meeting can be found at here.

Archbishop Hanna began by reminding the committee:

Palestine is the place from where Christianity comes. Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Holy Land in general are very important for Christians… Everything that has happened to the Palestinians between 1948 and today has happened to all Palestinians, including Christian Palestinians.

What we are after is freedom and dignity just as freedom and dignity have been bestowed on so many nations in the world. We want that too. When we speak about peace, we also speak about justice because it is impossible to have peace without justice. Peace is part of justice. Unfortunately, in the Holy Land there is no such thing as justice.

He explained that in Gaza 1.5 million live in an open air prison.“Christian or Muslim, we all are Palestinians and we all experience the same.”

I will be serious here for just a minute. Our policy in the region has always been effed up and that is a function of 1) our support for Israel, 2) the fact that those people are effed up, and 3) government propaganda.

First, those people are effed up. They are not like our government where they decide on a policy and stick with it. They are inconsistent and change allegiances on a whim. Its hard to have a consistent foreign policy when you have such unstable societies.

Israel, for better or worse, is who we are allied with in the middle east. It wasn't always that way. Originally, Israel was the pet project of the UK and we were against it. Eventually we came on board and supporting Israel is the official policy of the United States and it isn't going to change.

Finally, when it comes to government propaganda even someone like me who follows current events didn't understand the dynamics of Christians and who they support. The Christians there have always supported Murbarak, Arafat, Saddam, Khadafi, the Shah and Assad because those guys had the iron fist that kept those unruly societies together making them safe for Christian communities.

That's also why Russia was close to those governments, because of the Christians, although it is a little hard to wrap my brain around why a communist/atheist government in the USSR would have such an affinity for Christians. I'm guessing even though the USSR was atheist, the historical traditions just kept the relationships going.

We have always hated those leaders because they have beeen seen as threats to Israel. Nevertheless, they have been good for Christians there. We were never told that ... it is only because of the internet that people are beginning to understand this quirk of history and politics.

Bottom line: Israel is there and we are swimming upstream by supporting them. But will they be there 500 years from now? Probably not. Hard for me to believe that our support will remain strong for them given how sick people are of playing policeman in the world.

Question...do you think that because the USA is siding with Israel, it's fuel for the fire for the radical Muslims?
Obama certainly isn't showing enthusiastic support in Israel, and looking the other way when it concerns the Muslim brotherhood. That's just my opinion, although actions speak louder than words.

That is a big reason they hate us and a big reason for the renewed attack on Christians but not the only reason. Most of those countries were part of the Ottoman Empire. Then Europe came in and split everything up (mostly France and the UK if memory serves). Then they became independent.

Those people are mostly uneducated peasants and the are unruly (think blacks and hillbillies here). And the only way to fight people like that is with heavy handed and ruthless tactics. The Russians are best equipped to do this, but even they seem to have problem controlling Arabs.

When we fight those people, constrained by rights and courts and laws, it reminds me of the American Revolution where the Brits lined up and tried to do everything properly and in a disciplined manner, and our guerillas ran rings around them because they were able to be quick on their feet.

I know and have,had conversations with 3 Palestinians many times. The mother of two kids, boy and girl, owns a string of restaurants in the USA. Both kids are in college. The mother told me when her kids are graduated, they will return to their homeland. During the HEZBOLLA (spelling?)takeover, a few years back, her parents were in fear of their life. She kept me updated. It's very sad. She hated the Jews and is visiting Palestine every 3-4 months to check up on her family.

Another friend married an UZBECKISTANIAN, and when 9-11 happened, he was scared to death that he would be deported. Nice man.....weird fact: he's Muslim and she's a Jew. She can never visit his homeland....she said her life would be in danger...he observes RAHMADON AND SHE DOES HER OWN THING.

Growing up in America, the implicit message is that the Palestinian side is the Muslim side and that the Israeli side is the side that Christians should be on.

Like so much BS we were fed during the cold war, I myself didn't realize that most if the indigenous Christians there consider themselves Palestinians and identify with the Palestinian side. 95% of the Christians over there support the Palestinians.

Once it sunk in that the direct descendants of the original Christians were my coreligionists and that they were on the side of Palestinians, it really changed my way of looking at things over there. It helped that secular Jews have been as destructive as they have been to our country and everything I believe in.

They love war and don't hesitate to bomb in a situation. A very stubborn group. They so support each other and their businesses, that I give them.I have had Jewish clients for over 25 years. I get along with everyone, but they can grate on my nerves at times. Demanding.......

A Hamas Palestinian in Gaza is not the same as a Fatah Palestinian on the West Bank. The two groups will probably go into civil war with each other. You spread bs when you NEVER differentiate the two groups and the impact their division has on impeding Israeli-Palestinian negotiation.

Archbishop Hannah, Patriarch Fouad Twal and 95% of my co-religionists say the Palestinians are the good guys and the Christ-killing Jews are the bad guys. That's all I need to know.

“I was forcibly struck by what Fr Madros (a spokesman for Roman Catholic Patriarch of Jerusalem) said today about people from the island of Ireland going to see the sights of the Holy Land and Jerusalem. The Israelis are making vast amounts of money out of the Christian heritage while the indigenous Christian population are being heavily discriminated against and persecuted”, Cllr Crawford, who is a Presbyterian Elder, said.

I don't know where you get that statistic but it is a false one. In Israel itself the majority of Christians do NOT support the Palestinian terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hizbollah, and other terrorists groups. Jews and Christians including Palestinian Christians get along good with each other but Palestinian terrorists kill Palestinians who befriend Jews. The Palestinian terrorists know they have to ride roughshod over Palestinian Christians to keep them fearful of befriending Jews.
It helps when discussing an issue to know about the issue inside and out.

In Syria the Syrian Christians are caught in the middle between the Assad government and the Hamas, Hizbollah and al Qaeda rebels. Most of the homeless in that war are Syrian Christians many of which have immigrated to other countries.
The Christians who are siding with one side or the other in Syria are fighting on the side of the Assad government, knowing they are treated better and left alone by the Assad government.
Before the rebellion the Syrian Christians got along good with the muzlim neighbours.

Same situation in Cyprus. The Greek Orthodox Christians and Turkish muzlims in Cyprus got along good, interacting in same neighbourhoods but since the fighting broke out in Cyprus between the Greeks and Turkish rebels, Greek and Turkish friends are separated, having to flee to the Greek or Turkish side respectively and most missing their neighbours and neighbourhoods. It is the rebels and terrorists on each side who are causing the grief and separation of friends and groups.

You are incorrect, but I will give you a pass because you are not an Eastern Christian like I am so you have no way to know this.

The Archbishop and the Roman Catholic Bishop represent THE original Christian communities in the Holy Land. The Holy Sites are mostly under their jurisdiction. They support the Palestinian side and if you do some quick googling and you will find that 95% of their flock does as well.

Read the first article I linked about "The Forgotten Christians" to educate yourself. This is not propaganda, this is the real thing.

Here is another link:

==========

http://mondoweiss.net/2012/03/the-myth-of-isr...

Amb. Michael Oren’s article,‘Israel and the Plight of Mideast Christians,’ presents Israel as a tolerant, dove-like, and peaceful democracy. This is belied by the facts.

I am one of those Palestinian Christians living inside Israel to whom Oren refers. At no time in my life have I ever felt the ‘respect and appreciation’ by the Jewish state, which Oren so glowingly references. Israel’s Christian minority is marginalized in much the same manner as its Muslim one or, at best, quietly tolerated. We suffer the same discrimination when we try to find a job, when we go to hospitals, when we apply for bank loans, and when we get on the bus — in the same way as Palestinian Muslims.

Israel’s fundamental basis is as a racist state built for Jews only, and the majority of the Jewish population doesn’t really care what religion we are if we’re not Jewish. In my daily dealings with the State, all I have felt is rudeness and overt contempt.

Oren’s statement that ‘The extinction of the Middle East’s Christian communities is an injustice of historic magnitude’ is outright shocking to anyone familiar with even the basic history of how Israel was founded. I would like to remind him and others that this founding expelled thousands of Palestinian Christians from their homes in 1948 and displaced them, either forcing them to flee across the border or making them internal refugees. The ethnic cleansing of Palestinians that comprised the founding of Israel is, too, an injustice of historic magnitude. A man living in a glass home — or a home stolen from Palestinians — should think very carefully before tossing stones.

My cousin’s husband, Maher, is from Iqrith, a village a few miles from mine in the Galilee. His family, and all of Iqrith’s inhabitants, were expelled from their village in 1948 and Iqrith was razed to the ground by Israeli forces on Christmas eve, 1950, in a special ‘Christmas gift’ to its people. The timing of this destruction leaves one to wonder at the intended message. Maher was born years after his family took shelter in Rama, a village nearby in the Galilee. Today, he struggles with finding a place to build a house to live in with his wife and children. Israeli policies that severely restrict the building zones in Arab towns and villages result in land shortages impeding the population’s natural expansion. Limiting land to residents of the same town or village means that internal Palestinian refugees face severe housing discrimination.

The return of people like Maher has been made impossible by Israel, which refuses to negotiate on the right of refugees to return to their homeland. If Oren is so concerned for Palestinian Christians, would he kindly give the green light for the return of Christian refugees from Iqrith, Bir’im, Tarshiha, Suhmata, Haifa, Jaffa, and tens of other Palestinian towns and villages that they were expelled from in 1948? The answer, I assure you, is no. Many of these refugees are living in refugee camps in nearby countries, where Israel and Oren are happy to leave them.

Continued ...

The terrorists referred to in Oren’s statement that ‘Israel, in spite of its need to safeguard its borders from terrorists, allows holiday access to Jerusalem’s churches to Christians from both the West Bank and Gaza,’ are in fact Palestinian Christians living on the land that Israel has occupied — in flagrant opposition to all human rights charters — and from which it is refusing to withdraw its soldiers and illegal settlers. To applaud Israel for giving people permits to travel across what by law is their own country is the height of hubris.

His claim that ‘In Jerusalem, the number of Arabs–among them Christians–has tripled since the city’s reunification by Israel in 1967’ fails to mention Israel’s relentless policies of cracking down on Jerusalem: building unending settlements; building a Separation Wall that slices right through the city, severing its families, neighborhoods and businesses and hitting hard at its Arab economy; seizing Arab lands and expelling families that have lived on them for generations; and revoking the citizenship of any Palestinian resident who travels abroad for too long. Imagine the outcry if an American citizen traveled abroad for two years and upon return discovered that his citizenship was revoked and that he had lost his American ID and passport.

Israeli officials don’t care whether the Palestinians they discriminate against are Christian or Muslim. It is true that inter-religious strife is on the rise in a region long tormented by poor living conditions, for which the West bears significant responsibility having aided the region’s many dictators.

Oren’s faux tolerance and crocodile tears over the plight of Christians fool no one. Were he serious, I would urge him to have a close look at Israel’s policies of occupation and racial discrimination.

As Jesus said,‘Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?‘(Matthew 7:3)
