Lord, have mercy!
Not all of them directly relate to the OP, but these articles give some background on the tensions between the Orthodox Arabs and the Greek hierarchy:
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?
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.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.What???
