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.


 

A Christmas “message” for the Arameans of Mosul: Four Aramean Churches attacked and one Aramean killed.

 

Dutch Version

The extremist forces in Iraq again demonstrate their true nature. On 15th of December they attacked two Aramean churches in Mosul, one of them being the West- Aramean Syrian Catholic Church (Al- Beshara) and the other one the West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox Church (Al Gahera). Four people were killed and forty injured.

 

On 23rd of December 2009 again two Aramean Churches were attacked in Mosul; the West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox St. Thomas Church and the East- Aramean Chaldean St. George Church. Three people were killed and fife injured. On 24th of December 2009 the East-Aramean Basel Misho Hanna was killed in Mosul.

 

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.  

 

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.

New Violence Flares in Iraq, With Christians and Shiites as Targets

 

Source http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/24/world/middleeast/24iraq.html

 

By JOHN LELAND

 

Published: December 23, 2009

 

BAGHDAD — As Muslims in Iraq observe the 10-day holiday of Muharram, and Christians warily prepare for a subdued Christmas, episodes of violence erupted around the country on Wednesday, some of them aimed at worshipers of each faith.

 

There were four separate bomb attacks in Baghdad on Shiite pilgrims marching toward Karbala in observance of Muharram, and a fifth attack on people giving food and drinks to the marchers.

 

In East Baghdad, an improvised explosive device killed 3 marchers and wounded 28 others. A bomb attached to a motorcycle killed 1 pilgrim and wounded 7, while 7 more marchers were wounded in bombings south of Baghdad. A roadside bomb in the commercial Karada neighborhood exploded near people serving the marchers, killing 1 and wounding 4.

 

The pilgrimage to Karbala, culminating Sunday in the Day of Ashura, is one of the holiest Shiite observances, commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in 680 A.D. Saddam Hussein banned the pilgrimage, and it has been a target of attacks since his fall in 2003.

 

“They will not make us stop by making explosions here or there,” said Ahmed al-Saedi, 26, one of the marchers, who was not near the bombings. “They have tried with much bigger explosions and they saw what happened. We will never stop, so if they are strong enough, let them come face to face.”

 

The Iraqi government has promised to increase security for the pilgrims, deploying nearly 50,000 soldiers and police officers to Karbala and Najaf, where a million pilgrims are expected to converge this weekend.

 

In the northern city of Mosul, where sectarian violence has continued to run high, a bomb placed in a handcart opposite the Syrian Orthodox Church of St. Thomas killed two people, both Muslim, and damaged the church, which was built in 770. The attack followed threats to blow up churches at Christmas, and was the sixth attack on Christians in Mosul in less than a month. Threats and attacks against Iraqi Christians typically rise during the Christmas season.

 

After a relatively peaceful November, in which only 88 Iraqi civilians were killed in attacks, violence has increased this month, punctuated by a series of car bomb attacks on Dec. 8 that killed at least 121 people. The November total was the lowest since the American-led invasion of 2003, according to the Web site icasualties.org.

 

Iraqi police officers remain a favorite target of the attackers. In Abu Ghraib early on Wednesday morning, gunmen opened fire on a police checkpoint, killing four officers before escaping. In a similar shooting on Dec. 6, gunmen killed a police officer outside a guard room, then stormed the room and killed three more policemen inside.

 

The district commissioner of Abu Ghraib, Shaker Feza, blamed negligence among the security forces for the attacks. “They say that this place is a terrorist area and all the people who live here don’t deserve anything but to be killed,” Mr. Feza said.

 

Later in the day, in nearby Falluja, attackers placed a magnetic bomb on the armored car of a Sunni candidate for Parliament, Efan al-Essawi. The attack was the first on a candidate in the coming elections, according to the police.

 

Sheik Essawi, a Sunni Muslim running on the Iraqi Unity Alliance electoral list, was wounded but escaped serious harm. The sheik was also the head of the local Sunni Awakening, a group that formed to oppose Sunni insurgents and is credited for much of the reduction of violence in Iraq since 2007.

 

Another magnetic “sticky” bomb attached to a car in Falluja killed a man named Edham al-Mashhadani, whose brother runs the youth union in Anbar.

 

While violence has declined in most of the country, recent months have seen a rise in attacks in the areas west of Baghdad that include Abu Ghraib, Anbar and Falluja, early strongholds of the insurgency.

 

In unrelated incidents in Baghdad, a magnetic bomb attached to a minibus killed one person and injured three, and gunmen killed a police brigadier general in front of his home.

 

The Iranian ambassador to Iraq, Hassan Kazemi-Qomi, tried to play down a border dispute that erupted in the past week after Iranian soldiers briefly advanced into an oil field in territory claimed by Iraq, then withdrew. The ambassador said both governments agreed to 1975 treaties setting the border. He accused the news media of stirring up controversy before the election. “We have a unified vision regarding fulfilling the treaty,” he said. “There’s no disagreement between the two countries.” He added, “There are hidden hands who want to sabotage this relationship.”

Mosul attacks on two Christian churches, three dead and several injured

The Chaldean Church of St. George and Syriac Orthodox Church of St. Thomas hit. One bomb was hidden in a cart carrying vegetables. The explosion kills a Chaldean Christian and two Muslim. Archbishop of Kirkuk: "disturbing message" to two days before Christmas.
 

Mosul (AsiaNews) - Two separate bombs struck this morning in Mosul, the Chaldean church of St. George and Syriac Orthodox Church of St. Thomas. The death toll so far is of three dead - a Chaldean Christian and two Muslims - and several wounded. Louis Sako, archbishop of Kirkuk, speaks to AsiaNews of a "disturbing message" ahead of Christmas, keeping tensions high as well as fear of further violence in northern Iraq.

 

Sources for AsiaNews in Mosul confirm that "the situation for Christians continues to worsen, given that the Christians buildings are again being targeted by terrorists. The two churches hit are two old buildings, of great historical and cultural value".

 

In the attack on the church of Saint George three people were killed: a Chaldean Christian and two Muslims, others were injured. Local witnesses report that the explosion was caused by "a cart of vegetables, filled with bombs." From the initial reconstruction, it seems that the target of the attack was a police barracks in the district of Khazraj. In the last six weeks in Mosul four churches and a convent of Dominican nuns have been attacked. The explosions were caused by car bombs producing serious damage to buildings and adjacent homes, Christian and Muslim. Five Christians have been murdered and others have become victims of kidnapping for ransom. These targeted attacks testify to the "ethnic cleansing" in act against the Christian community throughout Iraq.

 

Louis Sako, archbishop of Kirkuk, believes today attacks are yet another "disturbing message" to two days before Christmas. These threats, stresses the prelate, "continue to influence the Christian community" that hopes "for peace" but is the victim of violence. "The message of peace and hope - reaffirms the archbishop of Kirkuk - announced by angels, remains our best wishes for Christmas for the entire country: we want to work together to build peace and hope in the hearts of all men and women of Iraq."

NINEWA / Aswat al-Iraq: Casualties from the handcart bomb explosion near two churches in central Mosul rose to two dead and five wounded, all civilians, a military source said.

 

“The final toll of the attack that occurred near two churches in al-Saaa region in central Mosul, rose to two dead and five wounded,” the source told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

 

A police source had said earlier that at least one civilian was killed and four others were wounded in a handcart bomb explosion in central Mosul on Wednesday.

 

Last year, thousands of Christians fled Mosul in the face of violence that claimed the lives of 40 members of the community.

 

Since the US-led invasion of 2003, hundreds of Iraqi Christians have been killed and several churches attacked.

 

Around 800,000 Christians lived in Iraq at the time of the invasion, but their number has since shrunk by a third or more as members of the community have fled abroad, according to Christian leaders.

 


Vier Tote und 14 Verletzte im Irak

Bagdad/Mossul (RPO). Bei einer Anschlagsserie auf Regierungsgebäude und Kirchen sind im Irak fünf Menschen getötet und Dutzende verletzt worden. In der Hauptstadt Bagdad explodierten am Dienstagmorgen bei mehreren Ministerien zeitgleich drei Bomben und töteten vier Menschen; 14 weitere wurden verletzt. In Mossul wurden ein Mensch getötet und 40 weitere Menschen verletzt, als an zwei syrischen Kirchen Bomben in die Luft gingen.

 

Die Anschläge in Bagdad richteten sich gegen das Verteidigungs- und das Einwanderungsministerium sowie gegen das Außenamt. Nach Angaben von Behördenvertretern und Zeugen waren die Sprengsätze in Autos deponiert, die kurz vor den Explosionen auf Parkplätzen nahe den Ministerien abgestellt worden waren. Die Polizei entschärfte zudem mehrere Bomben, die sich in einem Auto nahe einem Kontrollpunkt zur stark abgesicherten Grünen Zone befanden.

 

Unter den 40 Verletzten der Anschläge auf zwei Kirchen in Mossul waren fünf Schüler einer nahe gelegenen christlichen Schule, wie die Polizei mitteilte. Im Irak beraten derzeit die Verantwortlichen der Sicherheitsdienstes des Landes, wie Anschläge besser verhindert werden können. Während die Abgeordneten den Ministerien mangelnde Koordinierung im Kampf gegen die Gewalt bescheinigten, werfen diese dem Parlament vor, nicht genügend Mittel bereitzustellen.

 

Am Dienstag vergangener Woche waren bei der etwa zeitgleichen Explosion von fünf Autobomben in verschiedenen Stadtteilen Bagdads mindestens 127 Menschen getötet und mehr als 400 weitere verletzt worden. Bei einem Anschlag auf das Justizministerium und den Sitz des Gouverneurs wurden Ende Oktober 153 Menschen getötet

Iraqi Christians fear more attacks after two church bombings in Mosul

.- As Iraqi Christians prepare for Christmas, bombs have caused explosions at two Christian churches on Tuesday. More attacks are feared.

 

A bomb at the Al Gahera (Our Lady of Purity) Syrian Orthodox Church in Mosul’s city center caused a major explosion on Tuesday afternoon. The church received significant damage and a number of people were injured, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) reports.

 

The Al Beshara (Annunciation) Syrian Catholic Church in Mosul was hit earlier that day at 10:30 Tuesday morning by a bomb placed against an outside wall of the building. The bomb caused a minor explosion and damaged the wall, but nobody was hurt. A kindergarten occupied by children was near the explosion.

 

The Baghdad government has warned Church leaders of further attacks over Christmas, saying priests and religious sisters should be especially vigilant.

 

Fr. Bashar Warda, a Redemptorist priest of northern Iraq, told ACN that Christians felt very strong “fear and shock” at a time when they look forward to Christmas to “lift our spirits.”

 

He reported that the Church would continue its Christmas preparations undeterred.

 

“Normally Christmas is a time when we lift our spirits with a number of festivities so you can imagine what the atmosphere is like here now.”

 

Fr. Warda said he had talked to Fr. Nazen Eshoa, a parish priest at Al Beshara, who had returned to Mosul to minister despite being kidnapped for a few days last year.

 

“Fr. Nazen – like all of us – is shocked but he wants to continue preparing for Christmas as much as possible,” Fr. Warda explained to ACN.

 

The identity of the attackers is not yet known. Church leaders do not know if there is a link between the attacks in Mosul and the threats against Christians in Baghdad.

 

The latest attacks in Mosul come less than three weeks after bomb attacks there caused serious damage to St. Ephrem’s Chaldean Church and a nearby convent.

 

No one was hurt in the attacks, but at least five Chaldean Sisters were in the convent at the time.
