Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Sebastia Atallah Hanna strongly condemned in a press release issued Tuesday the Israeli bill to ban Muslim call to prayer (Adhan) over loudspeakers in occupied Jerusalem.
Hanna considered the Israeli ban as “a dangerous and unprecedented step that comes as part of Israel’s racist policy aiming to Judaize Jerusalem”.
Today, they are targeting mosques and tomorrow is the churches’ turn, he said.
“We will remain in our lands and we will never give up our holy city,” Hanna added. “Our mosques and churches will forever be a source of peace, love, and brotherhood.”
He concluded by calling for uniting all Palestinian efforts to confront Israeli racist measures.
