Prominent Christian leader says “America is seeking to solve its economic problems at expense of weak nations” Occupied Jerusalem: 18 January, 21003 (IAP News) A prominent Christian Orthodox leader in Jerusalem has castigated the United States for its “bullying policy against poor and weak nations.” Rev. Hanna Atallah, who serves as Spokesman of the Orthodox Patriarchate in Palestine also condemned the Bush Administration for embracing Israeli Nazism against the Palestinian people while claiming that it is working to liberate the Iraqi people. “Don’t they see that Israel has reduced our population centers to huge open-air jails? Don’t they see the starvation?,” said Hanna during a meeting at Orthodox Patriarchate headquarters in East Jerusalem Friday. Hanna, echoing the sentiments of the vast majortiy of the Arab and Muslim world and many other anti war advocates worldwide, argued that the chief motive of the planned American war on Iraq was economic. “They simply want to solve their economic problems by putting their hands on the resources and wealth of weak nations, like Iraq.” Hanna pointed out that Orthodox church was an Arab church which stands “soul and heart” with the Iraq people against any American aggression on the people of Iraq. _______________________________________ Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) 10661 South Roberts Rd, Suite 202 Palos Hills, IL 60465 Tel: 708 974 3380 / Fax: 708 974 3389 /Pager: 1 800 481 4306 http://www.iap.org E-mails: firstname.lastname@example.org Proudly serving Palestine and al Quds _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
