NEWS FROM THE CHURCH OF GREECE 

Neither Recognition nor Dialogue
The Holy Synod of the Church of Greece has announced: It has come to our attention that a group calling itself the "Syro-Russian Orthodox Catholic Church", claims, on its website, that it "is in dialogue with the Hellenic (Greek) Orthodox Church and the Metropolitanate of Athens which recognizes the Syro-Russian Metropolitanate". This statement is completely false. The Orthodox Church of Greece does not, and has never, recognized such a group nor maintained a dialogue with it. Neither is this group recognized by any of the canonical Orthodox Churches. Its leaders and the "clergy" ordained by them do not possess canonical orders.

Kosovo: The Plot Thickens
“Admiral James “Ace” Lyons warned in the Washington Times that “the drug, sex slave, weapons, money-laundering, and other illicit trades” are flourishing in Kosovo, but none of this should come as any surprise: Even in 1999, when the Clinton administration decided to take military action in support of the so-called Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), there were numerous and credible intelligence and news reports of the KLA’s criminal and terrorist inclinations. Predictably, KLA veterans found even more opportunity to ply their illicit trades when, ostensibly demobilized, they were recruited by the UN into Kosovo’s police, civil administration, and quasi-military ‘Kosovo Protection Corps.’ The foxes were asked to guard the chicken coop—another U.N. fiasco.”
