The Greek Orthodox Christian Patriarchate in east Jerusalem has expressed its disregard for the Israeli law that considers Aramaic Christians as a nationality; stating Israel is attempting to divide the Palestinian minority.

While many Israeli Christians agree with this new law, the Greek Orthodox Church believes the law further divides minorities living within Israel, by separating Christians from the Arabs.
