You post is worth disassembling and addressing point by point, because it has numerous errors:
Metropolitan Hilarion did not say that Abbess Aemiliane went against any cannons, only that she went against the 'norms' of Rocor, and the norms can be whatever a Metropolitan wants them to be...or so I believe.
The 'norms' of ROCOR have to do with their interpretation and implementation of the Canons of the Church, as decided by their Holy Synod. Norms are their practices, which they have carried out for decades, rather than the whims of one man. After all, if you ask the bishops of ROCOR whether their norms violate the canons, they would say 'no.' The norms, therefore, are their best attempts to live in accordance to the canons.
So, when they are saying that the nuns are demanding special treatment and pardon from the norms of ROCOR, they are asking for something not in accordance with ROCOR's interpretation of the canons, thus a violation of the canons. Combining this with their demands to be led by a man outside ROCOR and not under any of their bishops, then you have a clear departure from canonical order.
When I said deception, I meant a spiritual deception. In other words, a deceptive or harmful thought or decision that enters a person's mind either directly or through the influence of others. No one is immune, for even saints have been deceived. As an example, Tsar Nicholas II who was influenced by his wife, and she by Rasputin.
This is a false comparison: Rasputin sought influence over the Royal Family outside of the norms of the Russian Orthodox Church. You might say that this is avoidance of hierarchical supervision is very close to what the nuns are asking for.
However, you cannot say that Metropolitan Hilarion is spiritually deluded for enforcing policies that have always been part of ROCOR. To say such a thing would mean that the Abbess herself is deluded for expecting to remain within ROCOR and ever swearing 'allegiance unto death' with His Eminence. If you are saying that the policies of ROCOR are incorrect, and Metropolitan Hilarion's initial bending of the rules was spiritually motivated, and now he is re-entering delusion, then the nuns should not be part of ROCOR.
You are wrong though about the nuns not being slandered. All one has to read is the comments on this thread to see that they have been definitely slandered, if not calumniated...and it must hurt, for there is nothing as painful as slander and calumny to a person with integrity. But God does allow it to those He loves so as to lessen their pride. (Not my words)
Show me where ROCOR has slandered the nuns? Reread my previous posts, Zenovia.
As for the GOA, Abbess Amiliani was a member and quite well known. She was asked by Metropolitan Jonah to return to the U.S. and start a monastery. Because of the problems she encountered, she went under Rocor. I don't know if her monastery can go under the Church of Greece, but if it can, it would be the best all around. I personally have the highest respect for the Church in Greece. It's supported by the state and that frees the priests so they can tend solely to the spiritual needs of its members. Also they've had quite a few saints this past decades. Seems like they're everywhere in Greece.
If she were to be accepted by the Church of Greece, then she would end up triggering a crisis in the Greek community: all Greek parishes in the US are under the Patriarch of Constantinople. Both Alexandria and Jerusalem, as Greek entities, have been driven off of claims to the US based on this principle. I don't think the Church of Greece will accept these nuns unless they return to Greece.
At this point, the nuns will either have to demonstrate willingness to obey local authority, or find a bishop here willing to accept their conditional obedience. Otherwise, they will have to return to Greece or face the prospects of being, well, ignored.
