Israeli, Palestinian Presidents in Unprecedented Vatican Prayers

— Israeli and Palestinian presidents meet in an unprecedented prayer meeting with Pope Francis on Sunday, a gesture he hopes will "re-create a desire, a possibility" of eventually relaunching the Middle East's stalled peace process.

The Vatican has played down any expectations that the Sunday evening meeting between Shimon Peres and Mahmoud Abbas - billed as a "pause from politics" - will lead to any immediate breakthroughs in the region's tortuous problems and says it is not meddling in regional issues.

Syriacs to regain Mor Gabriel’s land, no move on Halki Seminary in ‘democratization package’

The land of the historic Mor Gabriel Monastery will be returned to the Syriac community in Turkey as part of the “democratization package” announced by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan today, while the package fell short of meeting the expectations that the Halki Seminary could be reopened.

“The land of the Mor Gabriel Monastery will return to the monastery’s foundation,” Erdoğan promised today, while declaring a wide range of reforms on democracy.

“In fact, our government has shown a great sensitivity in this issue throughout the [Turkish] Republic’s history and has made serious efforts in return for such rights. We have taken sincere steps with regulations we made about the removal of such injustices in 2003, 2008 and 2011 and we received concrete results. We have returned more than 250 [properties], costing more around 2.5 billion Turkish Liras to the original owners,” said Erdoğan. Erdoğan also said that they would continue to return the properties of minorities without occasioning the suffering of others.

Δεν θα επαναλειτουργήσει άμεσα η Θεολογική Σχολή της Χάλκης.

Η επαναλειτουργία της Θεολογικής Σχολής της Χάλκης δεν περιλαμβάνεται στο "πακέτο" εκδημοκρατισμού που επεξεργάζεται αυτήν την εποχή η τουρκική κυβέρνηση, είπε σήμερα ο αντιπρόεδρος της κυβέρνησης, Μπουλέντ Αρίτς.

«Θα κάνουμε τα απαραίτητα βήματα (σσ: για την επαναλειτουργία της Θεολογικής Σχολής στη Χάλκη) όταν ειδικές, τοπικές και διεθνείς συνθήκες δημιουργηθούν», δήλωσε χθές στο τηλεοπτικό δίκτυο NTV.

Halki Seminary to undergo status change to allow for reopening

The Halki Greek Orthodox seminary on Istanbul’s (Constantinople) Heyebeliada island will revert to its pre-1971 status as part of an indirect method of allowing the long-closed clerical school to reopen while avoiding constitutional regulations on private institutions, according to daily Radikal.

The seminary’s reopening, which has been an ongoing point of debate for years, may be achievable once its higher education status reverts to its previous state as part of a new democracy package, meaning the school will fall outside of constitutional limitations on private universities.

Australia: 8 Feb 2013
The Fener Greek-Orthodox Patriarchate (Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople) supports the continued use of the historical Hagia Sophia in Trabzon as a museum, not as a mosque.
"As is known, Trabzon is not urgently in need of a mosque, and it is also known that there is no Orthodox community there. The best way is to keep the church as a museum," Dositheos Anagnostopulos, the Patriarchate's press officer told the Hürriyet Daily News.
