The thing is that the Greek patriarch has always claimed that the fire will only light for him, and the "ONE TRUE CHURCH" from which he means the Byzantine tradition.
It is pretty much a political ploy these by the Byzantines to keep undermining the authority of the Aemenians in Jerusalem. Most Byzantine sources speaking about it have some degrading mention of the Armenians. Sad.
