Aramean people: Aramean people (not to be confused with ‘Armenians’) speak Aramaic, the language spoken by Abraham, Moses and Jesus. They are the indigenous people of what was called in ancient times Aram- Nahrin, in our days it is called ‘Mesopotamia’.

Some Arameans today identify themselves with “Assyrians”, because of the spiritual colonial hate generating activities of the Western missionaries and diplomats in the Middle-East in 16th and 19th centuries. Other Arameans became known as “Chaldeans”. However all of them are Arameans.


The Arameans of Iraq again victim of killings and bloodbaths.

 

Dutch Version

 

They are at it again in the northern Iraqi city Mosul! Within two days fife Arameans were killed. On Tuesday 16th of February two Aramean students Zia Toma and Ramsin Shmael were killed in Mosul. On the same day two other Christian Arameans were killed, shopkeeper Mr. Fatukhi Munir and Rayan Salem Elias.

 

On Wednesday 17th of February the body of 20 years of age Aramean student Wissam George was found in the streets of Mosul.

 

The situation for the Aramean nation in Iraq, in particular in Mosul gets worse by the day. The Arameans find themselves in a very weak position where they depend on protection by the central government. Because of bad functioning security apparatus the Arameans do not get the necessary protection. The security forces who should protection our nation remain passive when members of our nation being killed.

 

Taking in consideration the passive attitude of the security forces to protect our people, one gets the impression as if decision has been taken at higher level to remove the Arameans out of Mosul at any price. If true, this indeed might be confirmation for the story told by Mr. Wayne Madsen we commented and put on our website a while back (http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/Great-Israel_Ethnic_cleansing_Iraq_Arameans_29_8_2009.htm).

As usual the perpetrators are “unknown”, they come out of “nothing” and disappear again in “nothing” without ever being brought to justice.

 

Following numerous attacks and killings in September 2008 in Mosul, thousands Arameans were expelled out of the city, by the forces of bloodshed and intolerance, to the surrounding villages. Some of them later came back, while others still live in outlying village of Mosul. Another part of them fled to Syria, Jordan or the West.

 

The Arameans of Iraq, also known as “Assyrians” or Chaldeans, find themselves in a difficult position, are heavily divided and therefore are a easy prey for the various political and religious groups who target the peaceful-minded Arameans; since thousands of years present in this part of the world. Some media point the finger to Al-Qaeada and other Jehadistic groups for killings and attacks. This however does not necessary have to be true, because there are also other forces who, for various reasons, might be responsible for these attacks to ethnically cleanse Aram-Nahrin of its original Aramean inhabitants.

 

A dramatic appeal:

 

A Aramean priest in Mosul says, “We don't want elections, we don't want representatives, we don't want our rights, we just want to be alive”

 

This cry of distress is typical for the situation of many Arameans to survive in Iraq. Our answer to this priest and many other Arameans is this one: You should ask yourself this question: Why does the Lord God allow this? If this powerful God is able to create the Heaven and Earth, why would he not be able to protect the Arameans of Iraq against the forces of Satan? Who is to be blamed for, that this Powerful God, who showed Himself in Christ Jesus of the Bible to the world, does not intervene?

 

The answer is: ,,Don't think that the LORD is too weak to save you or too deaf to hear your call for help!   2 It is because of your sins that he doesn't hear you. It is your sins that separate you from God when you try to worship him.” (Isaiah 59:1-2)

 

We have many times stated that the problem is absolutely not the evil forces of Satan. The problem is stubbornness and errors of our nation. They have allowed themselves to be a plaything in the hands of colonial/spiritual forces.

 

To understand the present-day problem, we further refer to this analyses we put on our website:

http://www.aramnahrin.org/English/Turks_Kurds_Aramean_monastery_St_Gabriel_28_2_2009.htm#6

http://www.aramnahrin.org/English/Mosul_Aramean_Srebrinica_27_10_2008.htm

 

Unless the Arameans will wake up and repent, otherwise they are doomed for extermination. Just simple as that!

 

Before the war of 2003, there were around 800.000 Arameans in Iraq. Probably more than half of them have left the country. The attacks on their churches and leaders chased the Arameans out of Iraq. We mention few examples:

 

West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox priest Paulus Iskandar killed in Mosul on 12-10-2006 by terrorists,

The West- Aramean Isoh Majeed Hadaya killed by terrorists in Iraq 22-11-2006

East- Aramean Chaldean priest Ragied Aziz Gannie brutally murdered in Mosul along with three deacons by Muslim extremists on 3-6-2007.

East- Aramean Chaldean bishop of Mosul, Mgr. Paulus Faraj Raho was abducted on 29-2-2008 in Mosul. His body was found on 13-3-2008 in Mosul and on 14-3-2008 he was buried in St. Addai Church in Karemlesh.

West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox priest Yusuf Adel Abud was killed on 5-4-2008 by terrorists in Baghdad and was buried on 6-4-2008 in the St. Paul and St. Cathedral in Baghdad.

 

The spiritual/political colonial Western intervention and machinations in the Middle-East divided the Arameans in various denominations, namely: 

  • - West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox

  • - West- Aramean Syrian Catholics

  • - East- Aramean Nestorian Chaldeans

  • - East- Aramean Nestorian "Assyrians". The "Assyrians" are divided among themselves as follows: The Apostolic Assyrian Catholic church of the East (Since 1976, the name "Catholic" has no relation with Rome) and the Ancient Church of the East (since 1968).

The terms “East- “ and “West- Arameans” go back to the time of early Christianity where the Aramean indigenous nation was geographically termed as such. Roughly speaking the Euphrates River was the border. Those Arameans living Eastern of Euphrates, thus living in Persia, were termed “East- Arameans” and those living Western of Euphrates, thus in Roman Empire, were called “Western- Arameans”.

The designations “Chaldeans” and “Assyrians” for the eastern Arameans go back to the Western colonial activities of the 16th (France + Catholic missionaries) and 19th (Great Britain + Anglican missionaries) centuries. The ecclesiastical and political Western powers closely worked together and setup camps in Turkey, Iraq, and Iran where the Aramean children were “educated” through which they were completely uprooted from their Aramean origin. They thereby planted a horrible form of fanaticism in their hearts which caused them to display an immense aversion to their Aramean origin.

 

In the year 1553 the Western Catholic missionaries together with France brainwashed a part of the East- Aramean clergy by means of bribery to call themselves “Chaldeans” with the result that the Aramaic language became known as “Chaldean” language and a part of the Aramean nation became known as “Chaldean” nation in some parts of the Western literature, the first attack on the Aramean heritage.

 

As a result of mutual hatred and competition between the Western Catholics and Protestants, in the late 19th century the same process was repeated, this time by the Anglican missionaries and Great Britain, and the other part of the East- Aramean “Nestorian” tribes of Hakkari (bordering Turkey and Iraq) and Urmia (Iran) to call themselves "Assyrians"- a term which was used purely geographically and only applied to the "Nestorians". The result was that Aramaic became known as “Assyrian” language and the Aramean nation as the “Assyrian” nation- this was the second and more severe attack on the Aramean heritage- a kind of spiritual genocide.

Three Christians killed in north Iraq

Source: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/18/20100216/twl-three-christians-killed-in-north-ira-3cd7efd.html

February 16, 2010

 

A Christian was killed in the restive city of Mosul on Tuesday, the third in as many days, as community leaders warned of rising violence against the minority ahead of Iraq's March 7 general election.

 

Christian leaders in Mosul, north of Baghdad, have criticised the security forces for "standing by and watching" as attacks against their community increase in the run-up to the parliamentary poll.

 

On Tuesday, a gunman emerged from a car in the north of the city and fired at two Christian students with an automatic weapon, according to a police officer who did not want to be named.

 

The shooter fled together with two other men in the car.

 

The officer said that Zia Toma, a 21-year-old engineering student, was killed and Ramsin Shmael, a 22-year-old pharmacy student, wounded. Both young men were Assyrian (Aramean) Christians.

 

"We don't want elections, we don't want representatives, we don't want our rights, we just want to be alive," said Baasil Abdul Noor, a priest at Mar Behnam church in Al-Arabi neighbourhood where the shooting occurred.

 

"It has become a nightmare. The security forces should not be standing by and watching. We hold them responsible, because they are supposed to be protecting us, and protecting all Iraqis."

 

Also in Mosul on Tuesday, two policemen were killed and nine other people wounded as a car bomb hit a police forensics bureau, emergency services said.

 

Tuesday's murder of the student came after gunmen in Mosul killed two shop owners from Iraq's Christian minority in separate attacks, prompting community leaders to criticise the security forces.

 

Greengrocer Fatukhi Munir, an Assyrian (Aramean) Catholic, was gunned down inside his shop in a drive-by shooting late on Monday, and armed assailants killed Rayan Salem Elias, a Chaldean Christian, outside his home on Sunday.

 

"I condemn this organised campaign against Christians," said Yahya Abid Mahsoob, human rights committee chair of the provincial council of Nineveh, of which Mosul is the capital.

 

"We (the provincial council) call upon the local and central government to take all precautions to protect Christians."

 

Others have expressed concerns that Christians could be targeted in violence ahead of the elections seen as a key test of reconciliation in Iraq, which has been wracked by sectarian hostilities since the 2003 US-led invasion.

 

"The Christian minority has become an issue in the elections, as it always is before elections," said Hazem Girgis, a deacon at an Orthodox church in the town centre.

 

"We are terrified... and the security forces are not able to offer us any security," said Girgis.

 

Attacks occur on a regular basis in Mosul and surrounding Nineveh province, which is among Iraq's most violent areas.

 

Human Rights Watch warned in November that minorities including Christians in the north were the collateral victims of a conflict between Arabs and Kurds over who controls Iraq's disputed northern provinces.

 

In late 2008, a systematic campaign of killings and targeted violence killed 40 Christians and saw more than 12,000 others flee Mosul.

 


 

Fourth Christian killed in northern Iraq

February 17, 2010

MOSUL, Iraq — A Christian student was found dead in the main northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Wednesday, the fourth in as many days, amid warnings of rising violence against the minority ahead of March 7 polls.

 

The bullet-riddled body of Wissam George, a 20-year-old Assyrian (Aramean) Christian, was recovered on a street in the south Mosul residential neighbourhood of Wadi al-Ain at around 1:00 pm (1000 GMT).

 

"George went missing this morning on his way to his institute, he was studying to be a teacher," said a police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity.

 

George is the fourth Christian since Sunday to be killed in the city, which has a Christian population of between 2,000 and 3,000.

 

"What can we say?" said Bishop Shlemon Warduni, the second-most-senior Chaldean bishop in Iraq.

 

"We are very sad. The government is looking at what is going on, it is speaking, but doing nothing," he told AFP.

 

On Tuesday, a gunman killed 21-year-old engineering student Zia Toma and wounded 22-year-old pharmacy student Ramsin Shmael, both Assyrian (Aramean) Christians.

 

Greengrocer Fatukhi Munir was gunned down inside his shop in a drive-by shooting late on Monday, and armed assailants killed Rayan Salem Elias, a Chaldean, outside his home on Sunday.

 

"We don't want elections, we don't want representatives, we don't want our rights, we just want to be alive," Baasil Abdul Noor, a priest at Mar Behnam church, said on Tuesday.

 

"It has become a nightmare. The security forces should not be standing by and watching. We hold them responsible, because they are supposed to be protecting us, and protecting all Iraqis."

 

Others have expressed concern that Christians could be targeted ahead of the elections, seen as a key test of reconciliation in Iraq, which has been wracked by sectarian violence since the US-led invasion of 2003.

 

"The Christian minority has become an issue in the elections, as it always is before elections," said Hazem Girgis, a deacon at a Syrian Orthodox church in the city centre.

 

"We are terrified... and the security forces are not able to offer us any security," said Girgis.

 

Attacks occur frequently in Mosul and surrounding Nineveh province.

 

Human Rights Watch warned in November that minorities in the north including Christians were the collateral victims of a conflict between Arabs and Kurds over who controls Iraq's disputed northern provinces.

The bullet-ridden body of Wissam Georges is found in Wadi Al-ayn neighbourhood. The young man vanished early in the morning, on his way to school. His murder is the fourth killing targeting Christians in three days. For Mosul Christians, the city has “become immured to this tragedy”.

 

Mosul – Wissam Georges, a 20-year-old Christian student, was killed today in Mosul, northern Iraq, this according to local police who found his bullet-ridden body. His death is the fourth targeted murder in three days against the Christian community. Among Christians, the assassinations are seen as “a real massacre, like Good Friday.” The city itself has become “immured to this tragedy.”

 

Police found the young man in the residential neighbourhood of Wadi Al-ayn, the same where an attack was perpetrated against a Chaldean Church. His body was riddled with bullets, a local source said.

 

Wissam Georges, 20, was studying to be a teacher. He had disappeared in the early morning on his way from Madida in north-west Mosul to the teachers college where he was taking a course to upgrade his training.  

 

This is the fourth murder targeting the Christian community in three days, a real massacre, according to a source that spoke to AsiaNews on condition of anonymity.  “It is like Good Friday, with no end in sight.”

 

“We have been abandoned by everybody,” he added. “It is as if the city has become used to this endless tragedy.” (DS)
