For Immediate Release – August 21, 2015

Dear Friends,

Back on March 28th, Operation Antioch released an update on our project to translate Paul Carolides’ book, “The Origins of the Orthodox Christians of Syria and Palestine”. At the time, it was our hope that the book would be ready for release in April. Unfortunately, we were wrong. After months and months of excuses, we have fired our original translator and are now looking for someone else to translate this priceless book. 

We would like to assure all those who donated to this important project that your donations are still safe and were not released to the previous translator. The original payment of $300, which was sent to begin the project, unfortunately, cannot be recovered. Therefore, Ioannis Fidanakis, who initiated the original GoFundMe fundraiser has offered to refund this money himself.  

We at Operation Antioch are therefore asking anyone capable of aiding us in our quest for our true ethnic origins to please contact us at Subject: Operation Antioch. We will not rest until this book is translated into English and Arabic, and released as promised for free online.
