Church in Jerusalem land scandal

Greek Orthodox patriach fights to stop deals that leased land to settler groups.

    For years the Greek Orthodox Church has been criticised for leasing its land in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank to the state of Israel for tens of millions of dollars.

    Al Jazeera has seen documents that reveal the full extent of the deals made between the church's former patriarch with a powerful Israeli settler organisation.

    Now the new patriarch says he is fighting to stop church property being turned into settlements.

    Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports.
