Al-Quds (Jerusalem Newspaper), the main Arab newspaper there, had posted a reply from Theodosios (Hanna) of Sebastia, the Archbishop from the Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem. In his reply the Archbishop, he condemned the flyers that were spread throughout the city of Jerusalem. He emphasized the danger of such a bulletin, since it emphasized the killing of church leaders and targeted all churches in Jerusalem’s vicinities and the Christian community in general. He stated that “Christians will not leave this sacred land and will not abandon our Christian belief.”
While the flyers accused the Christian Arabs of being “Israeli collaborators,” it is noteworthy that the archbishop, in his condemnation of the bulletin, emphasized his condemnation of Israel, insisting that there is a unity between Muslims and Christians in Jerusalem which is determined to fight against what he termed “the Israeli occupation.”
We have emphasized for years that Arab Christians, especially in the Holy land, have harbored hatred towards Israel. They will, in the future, be severely persecuted by Muslims, regardless of whom they collaborate with—Israel or Palestine. Sooner or later, such ignorance from Christian Arabs will be resolved when Muslims do begin to behead Christians who were fed the anti-Zionism agenda.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
