Books – Mina Ghaly:

The Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem denied what was circulated in recent days on the issue of the court’s decision to return the Sultan Monastery to the Coptic Church and to raise the Egyptian flag over the monastery.

Anba Antonios, Metropolitan of the Jerusalem See and the Near East, explained that there was a previous decision of the Israeli court to hand the monastery over to the Coptic Church in 1971, but the executive authorities did not implement this decision for security reasons, as they claimed, and therefore the monastery is still usurped by the Ethiopians, and there is nothing new in the matter.

And Anba Antonios added in a statement today: “As for the circulating picture, it was taken in front of the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv during the presidential elections three years ago.”

Anba Antonios concluded his statement by saying: “Therefore, we ask all the officials of the social media pages and channels to investigate such news and not circulate it until after reviewing the official website of the Patriarchate of the Holy See and the official page of the Patriarchate.”
