      Archbishop Hanna Denounces Israeli Attempts To Recruit Christians To The
      Israeli Army
      Friday November 02, 2012 07:01author by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC & Agencies

      Archbishop Attalla Hanna of the Greek Orthodox Church In Jerusalem,
      voiced strong condemnation to the Israeli attempts to recruit Arab
      Christians in the 1948 territory (Israel) into the Israeli military that
      occupies their people and their lands.

      Father Hanna strongly denounced some elements that held meetings with
      Israeli officials in an attempt to encourage young Arab Christians to
      join the Israeli occupation army, and said that those persons do not
      represent the Palestinian Christians.

      Hanna added that Christians in the holy land are Arabs, Palestinians,
      and will not be part of the military that occupies and oppresses their
      people.

      He also said that Israel is conducting a conspiracy that aims at
      uprooting the Arab Christians population from their national identity,
      adding that the Christians in the holy land are an essential part of the
      Arab nation.

      The statements of Archbishop Hanna came after Israeli Defense Ministry
      officials held a meeting in Nazareth Illit City with a number of
      Christian priests urging them to encourage the Arab Christians to join
      the Israeli military.

      In related news, the Islamic Movement in the 1948 territories warned
      young Arab men ”from falling into the Israeli trap that aims at creating
      sectarian conflicts within the Palestinian nation in occupied Palestine”.

      The Islamic Movement urged all Arab political parties in the countries
      to play an essential role in countering the repeated Israeli attempt to
      recruits Arab youths in the Israeli army.
