Congratulations to St. Mary Orthodox Church in Livonia, Palestinian Aid Society of America , Arab American News and entire Arab, Christian and Muslim Communities in Michigan for hosting honorable Archbishop of Jerusalem ATALLAH Hanna in the last few days!
Both yesterday and today we heard the true message of Jerusalem, message of freedom and justice, peace and dignity!
Listening to the words of this man of God, and his heavenly voice of wisdom, vision and solidarity with the poor and the oppressed, gives you hope of celebrating the human conscience and spiritual awareness everywhere on this planet!
Since president Trump claims Christianity, I ask him next time he goes to Jerusalem, stop by at the Church of this Archbishop and learn about the true voice of Jesus!
Then he would realize that his policies not only hurt the Muslims and Christians but also the true Jews everywhere!
Nothing is more harmful to the Jewish communities to defend occupation, oppression and hypocrisy under their name!
Real security for the Jewish people won’t be achieved through destroying the entire Middle East in the name of securing them!
We love and pray to see one day again the Muslims, Christians and Jews live next to each other in Jerusalem and entire Holy Land of Palestine with peace and brotherhood!
To occupy people’s property, stopping them from returning to the land they used to live on for thousands of years and treat any resistance with bombs and bloodshed is not promising any long term security for anyone. To turn Gaza to the world biggest concentration camp won’t help anyone in that neighborhood!!
It’s time for all children of Abraham to work together as one family and stop Trump, Netanyahu, Ben Salman and other self-centered politicians from their selfish policies which produce more misery and pain for all the people in the Middle East and in particular the suffering Palestinians!
You never feel safe if there are people in your neighborhood whose human rights, including their dignity, freedom, education, welfare, security and sovereignty are denied!
Just having might, doesn’t make you right!
