Lord, have mercy!

Before you all decide to attack each other:

1) You do not know all the facts, so, stop jumping to conclusions which only hurt the Church and her faithful
2) No matter your jurisdiction/calendar, you are in the midst of the Nativity your engines.
If the Jerusalem Patriarchate is anything like an American HR department, then dirt (proven or not) from a year or two ago is definitely not too old to use against a troublesome employee.
Leaving the Constantinopolitan GOARCH for Antioch has nothing to do with the Church of Jerusalem jurisdictionally, except that they are both "Greek" Orthodox Churches, as opposed to "Slavic", "Romanian", "Georgian" or "Japanese". And I frankly don't find that to be a good enough reason to change jurisdictions. I'd do so over something like organs in the Divine Liturgy.

It says his salary is stopped, but not that he is deposed or removed from his see or offices, right?

This is because he doesn't have a see, really. All bishops in the Patriarchate of Jerusalem are basically titular and there are no diocesan structures. Met Atallah has also never been a member of the Holy Synod of Jerusalem, which includes some of the bishops as well as some monks, all chosen by the patriarch. Which is to say, the Patriarchate of Jerusalem is not at all structured like an Orthodox church.

Turkish looks great (best Latin alphabet IMHO) and sounds awful. Farsi sounds great and looks awful. Given that their sound banks isn't that different from each other, Iran could well adopt some version of Atatürk's alphabet.
I don't think the Arabic alphabet fits it well, IDK. It's fine for Arabic, I don't think anything but an abjad would fit it, but in Persian it's just weird.

Another language that should consider switching alphabets would be Hebrew. Modern Hebrew sounds basically like bad German and it's impossible to match their beautiful, ancient, letters with the modern mish-mash.
