And in the case of Jerusalem, I fail to see why Phanariots should bemoan the presence of Russians, except the Russians aid the local, Arab Faithful, thereby endangering the tomb worshippers' colony.Because the Orthodox Church has condemned Phyletism. But I suppose that's meaningless to someone who calls people "Phanariots".
I call carpetbaggars Phanariots, and the tomb worshippers in Jerusalem certainly fit the description.
I'm aware that the Orthodox Church has condemned Phyletism, but I think you are referring to the Phanariot Pot Synod that called the Bulgarian Kettle black. Ironically, the Patriarch of Jerusalem was excommunicated in 1873 by this "Synod" because he wouldn't take part in its hypocrisy, and left. The Greeks of Smyrna greeted him with cheers of "Traitor!" "Muscovite!" because phyletism, of course, only meant distinction of races in the Churches when they asserted themselves in wanting to pray in their own language, not when the Phanariots wanted to Hellenize their subject peoples, Moscow having helped the subjected in the former in resisting the latter. The hypocrites decreed "The Apostle Paul has commanded us to take heed to ourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has made us bishops, to govern the Church of God, which He has purchased with His Own Blood; and has at the same predicted that grievous wolves shall enter among us, not sparing the flock, and that of our own selves men arise speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them; and he has warned us to beware of such...such men have lately appeared the Bulgarian people within the jurisdiction of the Holy Ecumenical Throne. They have dared to introduce into the Church the idea of phyletism, or the National Church, which is of the temporal life....having examined the principles of phyletism with reference to the precepts of the Gospel and the temporal constitution of the Church of God, we have found it not only foreign, but in enmity to them...in view of the definitions of the Fathers of the Church, we ordain as follows:
ARTICLE I. We censure, condemn and declare contrary to the teachings of the Gospel and the sacred canons of the holy Fathers, the doctrine of phyletism, or the diference of races and national diversity in the bosom of the Church of Christ. "
ARTICLE II. We declare the adherents of phyletism, who have had the boldness to set up an lawful uprecedented Church assembly upon such a principle, to be foreign and absolutely schismatic, to the only holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church....together with all who have been ordained by them to be archbishops, priests and deacons; all persons, spiritual and worldly, who are in communion with them; all who act in cooperation with them; and all who accept as lawful and canonical their unholy blessings and ceremonies of worship."

The tomb worshipping hypocrites were not please, and issued there deposition of the Patriarch. The excommunication of their Patriarch for breach of Omonogeia, er, phyletism, stated:
"relative to to the acceptance of the resolution of the Grand and Holy Council legally and canonically convoked at Constantinople-by which resolution phyletism (that is, the distinction of raceds and nationalities in teh Church) was rejected and condemned, and all who approved this phyletism and who, inspired thereby, have held up to this day illegal and clandestine meetings, were declared to be schismatics-have unanimously decreed and do decree as follows: In consideration that his Holiness....refused to join in the recognition of the Grand Council, that he also, in Jerusalem obstinately, and without sufficient reason, opposed to the invitations and prayers addressed by us to him...in consideration of all this, we consider him as having incurred the ecclesiastical censures which are expressly contained in the said resolution of the Grand Council, and as being, de facto, schismatic. And we find ourselves in the sad and painful necessity to take back the oath of submissiveness and obedience taken by us toward him, and henceforth to break off all connection and communion with him, and we shall never more perform any function with him, or in any respect act with him, and we shall no longer recognize him as head, and as our lawful and canonical shepherd."
