His Eminence bishop George Saliba of Mount Lebanon, Dr. Gabriel Oussi and Andreas Arsalan BethZazi are analyzing and commenting the conflict between the Arameans and the leadership of Syrian Orthodox Church through its patriarch HH Ignatius Afrem II Karim. Bishops Saliba says that all denominations are welcomed by the church but those who want to change its name to ”Aramean Church” will be opposed by all means.
The essence of the conflict of the Aramean leadership with the church is about to prevent the Arameans from taking full control over the church and use it for its political aims, the guests say.
Next step would be that Patriarch Karim may take down Aramean flags from church buildings, as he stated in his first speech as patriarch that the only sign of the church is the Cross.
