George: Jumping to conclusions? Firstly, that she is wearing a headscarf does not necessarily mean she is Muslim. Orthodox women also wear headscarves. Secondly, if she is Muslim, that she is standing next to the bishop does not mean she is running the kindergarten. Jordan is predominantly Moslem, but their government reps. have friendly relations with the Christians living there.

Is that a Muslim women standing to the right of the Bishop??? Is she running the "Orthodox" kindergarten?

Great propaganda piece! Jerusalem Patriarch has more Greeks in its hierarchy than the ethnic people that they represent! Actually, they only have ONE Arabic bishop and ALL OF THE REST ARE GREEK!!! How did that happen, and why?
