Jerusalem Archbishop rejects Bush

"What President Bush did and continues to do is un-Christian, unrelated to Christian ethics, or Christian values, therefore we reject American policies, its unconditional support to Israel and its occupation of Iraq," said Archbishop Attallah Hanna, the spiritual head of Palestine's Greek Orthodox community, regarding Bush's recent visit to Jerusalem. He refused to meet with the lame duck president in the Church of Nativity, the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

Unfortunately, the incident was ignored by every American media outlet, while the Christian right continues to lobby to support Israel's brutal occupation and colonization of Palestine, ignoring the sufferings of its people, including its Christian communities, at the hands of Israel's occupation forces and our citizen's hard-earned tax dollars.
