Video of Patriarch Irenaios Under House Arrest

A video is being circulated of the former Patriarch of Jerusalem under house arrest. He has been under house arrest for the past two and a half years. Apparently, when he was asked if someone could come up and speak with him, he said "You can't, because I am locked in."

A website has been developed in support of Patriarch Irenaios, which give reasons why he is under house arrest. The website can be seen here: http://www.gopoj.org/. I would only encourage readers to remember that there are two sides to this story, the other side of which I know little about. Some background information can be found here.
