New Syriac-Orthodox Patriarch elected

Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim, the Archbishop  for the Eastern United States, was elected as 123rd Patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch. Upon his installation his name will be Ignatius Aphrem II Karim. The new Patriarch is relatively young (just 48) and was born in Qamishli, in Syria's Hasaka province. Judging by his statements in US-media, he is potentially regime leading.
