A new color may be added to the colorful conglomeration of religious communities in Palestine, according to advices received by the Russian Greek Orthodox community here.

The Greek Orthodox community in Palestine is greatly disturbed over the report that the Greek Patriarch has officially recognized the “Living Church” of Soviet Russia. The fear is held that the Red “Living Church” may present its claim to the properties of the Russian Greek Orthodox religious community in Palestine, which are now under the administration of the old Russian Church.
