"The unity of Christianity can only happen in and around Christ, who is the head of the Church and we with all our doctrines are only parts of the holy body of Christ."

Source: orthodoxjointcommission.wordpress.com/2014/06/27/h-h-mor-ignatius-zakka-i-iwas-on-unity/

Are these sorts of idea generally accepted in the Syriac church? What were the reactions/interpretations when HH made that comment?

I'd like to know more about this quote.  Taken at face value its obviously wrong, but I'd like to give His Holiness of Thrice-Blessed memory the benefit of the doubt.

If he is speaking about unity within fractured Orthodoxy then he is right.

I agree, Father, because there are no real doctrinal differences which separate us.

Agreed Father, but that is not at all clear from the context presented on the Orthodox Unity website. I find it inappropriate that they are using an (potentially) erroneous quotation to advance their worthy cause.

I would venture and say that Unity is based on being in Communion and the Eucharist
