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.


 

Iraq: Aramean teacher and student killed in Mosul

 

Dutch Version

The Aramean blood continues to flow in Iraq. Again two Arameans have been killed in Iraq. On Monday 7th of January, the West- Aramean Syrian Catholic teacher Shda Elias was found dead in her home in Mosul. The throat of 54 years old victim was cut. According to an Aramean bishop in Mosul, “the motif and culprits behind this horrific murder are unknown. There are many questions.”

 

On Tuesday 8th of January the East- Aramean Chaldean student Ayoub Fauzi Ayoub, 26 years of age, was killed in Mosul by a car bomb. An Aramean clergy in Mosul told us that, “the car was parked along the road that daily was used by Ayoub to go to  university in Mosul.”

 

These two Arameans can be added to the large list of killed Arameans in Iraq since “liberation” of the country by Americans and their allies in 2003. Before “liberation” of Iraq by the Western colonial powers, the situation of Arameans was reasonable to good. They enjoyed religious freedom, their economic situation was good and contrary to current situation, nobody bothered about security in the country.

 

After “liberation” the misery and desperation started to befall the Aramean indigenous nation of Iraq. Under watchful eyes of Americans and British, the Aramean churches were blown up and burned, their daughters and women raped, their sons and men killed and more than half of 800.000 Arameans of Iraq were expelled out of country and forced into Diaspora. In the Western media these crimes against the Aramean nation were attributed to Islamic terrorists or “Al- Qaeada.” In reality however these awful crimes were committed by the Western colonial mercenaries and deaths squads. See more about this:

Disposing the Middle-East of Aramean, Coptic and other Christians: a demonic plan concocted in the antichristian malignant laboratories of colonial powers. http://www.aramnahrin.org/English/Arameans_Middle-East_Extermination_1_12-2011.htm

 

On 4th of January 2013 an analysis was published by professor Michel Chossudovsky entitled, “Terrorism with a “Human Face”: The History of America’s Death Squads

Death Squads in Iraq and Syria. The Historical Roots of US-NATO's Covert War on Syria”

http://www.globalresearch.ca/terrorism-with-a-human-face-the-history-of-americas-death-squads/5317564

 

Professor Chossudovsky elaborates in detail the role of colonial Western death-squads and mercenaries in Iraq that is today being copied and repeated in Syria.

 

On the role of United States he says: The recruitment of death squads is part of a well established US military-intelligence agenda. There is a long and gruesome US history of covert funding and support of  terror brigades and targeted assassinations going back to the Vietnam war.”

 

On Syria, professor Chossudovsky says: As government forces continue to confront the self-proclaimed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA),  the historical roots of  the West’s covert war on Syria –which has resulted in countless atrocities– must be fully revealed.”

“From the outset in March 2011, the US and its allies have supported the formation of death squads and the incursion of  terrorist brigades in a carefully planned undertaking.”

 

On the “Salvador Option” in Iraq and Syria he says: “The recruitment and training of terror brigades in both Iraq and Syria was modeled on the “Salvador Option”,  a “terrorist model” of mass killings by US sponsored death squads in Central America. It was first applied in  El Salvador, in the heyday of resistance against the military dictatorship, resulting in an estimated 75,000 deaths”

 

According to Michel Chossudovsky is the formation of death squads in Syria builds upon the history and experience of US  sponsored terror brigades in Iraq, under the Pentagon’s “counterinsurgency” program”

 

To combat the rebellion in Iraq, in 2005 Pentagon was considering forming hit squads of Kurdish and Shia fighters to target leaders of the Iraqi insurgency [Resistance] in a strategic shift borrowed from the American struggle against left-wing guerrillas in Central America 20 years ago”

 

Unfortunately the forming of these death-squads had a different goal and the so-called “Al Qaeda” in Iraq was under the supervision of secret services of Western colonial powers: “While the stated objective of the “Iraq Salvador Option” was to “take out the insurgency”, in practice the US sponsored terror brigades were involved in routine killings of civilians with a view to fomenting sectarian violence. In turn, the CIA and MI6 were overseeing “Al Qaeda in Iraq”  units involved in targeted assassinations directed against the Shiite population. Of significance, the death squads were integrated and advised by undercover US Special Forces”

 

If the analysis of Professor Michel Chossudovsky even for a tiny part is reliable, it sheds important light on the horrific events in 2008 in Mosul whereby more than 15.000 Aremans of various denominations were driven away and dozens of them murdered. On this awful ethnic cleansing we published at that time two analysis, namely:

Attempt of ethnic cleansing Mosul: The Aramean Srebrinica. Who is responsible and why?

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

 

In this analysis we quoted the Iraqi Parliamentarian Mr. Osama Najifi, now the chairman of Parliament, on the abominable events in Mosul. We wrote:

 

* The Member of Iraqi Parliament, Osama Al Naijifi holds Iraqi government responsible for what is happening with the Christians in Mosul and accuses Kurdish militia to drive the Christians out of the city

* On Monday, Naijifi explained to the Independent Press Agency (IBA) that the Kurdish security forces (Peschmerge) and elite forces (Asaisch) use Iraqi Army vehicles to intimidate the Christian community in Mosul by provocative manifestations

* He noted that the military forces in Mosul are being influenced by Kurdish militia and circulate threatening/inflammatory messages with the goal to expel the Christians out of their homes and underscores that the police (of Iraq) has arrested a group of people in military uniform, among them a captain of Iraqi army who were responsible for such threats

*Furthermore, Mr. Najifi says that the Iraqi army in Mosul receives their instruction from Kurdish Asaisch and Peschmerges to intimidate other groups with the aim to Kurdify the entire region, for expansionistic reasons, and to change the demographic identity of the city

* Yesterday, Najifi also explained that the Iraqi forces had forced three Christian families in the district Sukker, north of Mosul, to leave their homes and subsequently blown up the houses

* He underlines that the Kurdish parties since a year dominate the city and try to expand their hegemony. They also want to change the identity of the city for their expansionistic interests. To achieve this, they first have to remove the Christians to a special area. And then they safely can make of the entire area a Kurdish province. He indicates that this resembles to what has happened with minorities like Shabak and Alasidep

 (Please find here the second related article we published on 29th of august 2009: http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/Great-Israel_Ethnic_cleansing_Iraq_Arameans_29_8_2009.htm)

 

In the light of aforementioned analysis, it is definitely imaginable that the horrific crimes committed in Mosul in 2008 and in other parts of Iraq against the Aramean nation were indeed carried out by the special units that were formed by the Americans and in the mainstream media were termed as “Al Qaeda.” That explains the attitude of Americans and British regarding blowing up and burning of the Aramean churches, killing of their clergy, carrying out ethnic cleansing and forcing them into Diaspora. And the same criminal technology is now being repeated in Syria by the odious demonic colonial powers to destroy the country and chase away the Aramean indigenous nation of Syria that have been inhabiting the area since thousands of years.

 

In our analysis of 1st of December 2011 we commented an article by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaye entitled “The Eradication of the Christian Communities of the Middle East.” http://www.aramnahrin.org/English/Arameans_Middle-East_Extermination_1_12-2011.htm

 

We quoted amongst others: “A Christian exodus is being planned for the Middle East by Washington, Tel Aviv, and Brussels

 

Unfortunately this unholy plan seems to be carried out to the letter. And the Aramean “leaders” of various denominations are quite unaware, blind and act like drunkards. Some of them appear on television and use their skillfulness of cheating and lying to misguide the poor and ignorant people.

 

Pessimism…on the situation of Aramean nation of Iraq….

 

On 11th of January 2013 an interview was published on the website of asianews.it with the East- Aramean Chaldean bishop of Kirkuk, Mgr. Louis Sako. Below few remarks will be made:

http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Mgr-Sako:-torn-and-violent,-Iraq-is-in-an-Arab-winter-for-Christians-and-Muslims-26843.html

 

“At present, no solution appears to be at hand. In fact, political and ethnic divisions seem to be getting worse. Sunni Arabs accuse Shias and Kurds of violating their rights. Turkmen appear marginalised by everyone. Christians feel persecuted”

 

When Iraq was invaded by the colonial powers, the aim was to utterly destroy the country and definitely not to implement “democracy” and “Human rights.” These terms are being used to justice forming of death-squads, bloodshed and destroying of human life. Iraq served as example to Libya and now the same horrors are being repeated in Syria.

http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/Arameans_Iraq_Persecutions_Killings_Ethnic_Cleansing_29_12_2010.htm#3_5

 

The Aramean Christians, also made known in some media as “Assyrians” or Chaldeans,  should not fool themselves and make any illusion. The colonial demonic plan to cleanse the Middle-east of its indigenous Aramean nation is pretty on schedule.

 

After the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime, sectarianism and confessional divisions drove Shias, Sunnis, Christians, Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen apart. One's identity was more important than that of the nation. Brother was against brother

 

The showpiece of the colonial powers always have been: promotion of division, implementation of unbridgeable hatred and inciting father against son, brother against brother to utterly destroy every nation that became their victim, including Aramean nation. This unholy horrific colonialism was implemented within the Aramean nation by the odious France and United Kingdom in 16th and 19th centuries that caused the downfall of our people in the Middle-East.

 

“Given the situation, ordinary Iraqis and leaders are disheartened. Starting on the path of reconciliation, of exchange towards forgiveness, is not possible.

 

Well, this mutual hatred and division is also implemented within the Aramean nation. The horrific hatred injected in their hearts by France in 1553 and United King in 19th century prevents forgiveness and reconciliation. If Mgr. Sako and the rest of the Aramean bishops of various denominations in Iraq are not able to unify under one Aramean identity and one Aramean flag, how can they demand others to reconcile and forgive? Should not they first give others example? What the Arameans, who became victim of the horrific activities of France and UK, should do is to immediately make a resolute end to this colonial heritage and start unification.

 

Partition remains a strong possibility, one that is getting stronger given the situation in Syria and Egypt. Independent political leaders do not exist. Religious and ethnic parties pursue their own interests and autonomy. The situation has been complicated by the militias

 

The original plan to invade Iraq was to partition the nation in Kurdish, Shia and Sunni enclaves so that its strength would be destroyed.

 

Christians are dwindling in numbers as the exodus continues for various reasons. The Church does nothing and Christian political parties have failed in helping Christians remain, despite the possibility of making their voice heard, influence and build bridges with the other components of the nation because of their high educational levels

 

The exodus and dwindling of Christians are caused amongst others by:

 

1) It is the demonic plan of the odious western colonial powers to destroy Christianity in the middle-east.

2) It is the division within the Aramean nation that was promoted and implemented on the national, religious, cultural and social level to destroy the nation.

3) The majority of Christians committed treason against the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by allowing the implementation of colonialism within their ranks.

 

The “Church” and political “leaders” are being manipulated by evil outside powers. There are some good willing church leaders who try to do something good for our people in Iraq, but they are a minority and have not the power to achieve the noble goals they want to.

 

Neither the Church nor Christian politicians have a real vision, a clear and detailed plan or concrete answers. Increasingly, Christians are dejected as is the rest of the population. …………”

 

Of course not! Because many of these so-called “leaders” are blind, fool and are only interested in their own pocket and nothing else. They are useful tools in the hands of those who managed to destroy the Aramean nation not only in Iraq nut in the entire middle-east.

 

Spiritual fornication ….. the evildoers……..

 

Who are the evildoers of this misery that our people is being confronted with? Well, they are those among the Aramean nation who commit spiritual fornication with the colonial powers. They are the product and creation of colonial powers to destroy the Aramean indigenous nation of the Middle-east.

 

The colonial genocidal anti-Aramean product “Assyrians” committed in 2003 spiritual fornication with UK and US (their spiritual fathers and creators) and invited them and asked to please come and “liberate us from this ruthless dictator Saddam Hussein.”

 

About this spiritual fornication we wrote in our analysis of 28th of June 2012:

 

The unholy western colonial spiritual slavery product “Assyrians” are being used by their Western creators and masters to exterminate the Aramean indigenous nation of middle-east. In case of Iraq they used Younadam Khanna and his ADM that resulted in the downfall of the Arameans of Irak.

 

See more on this issue: http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/Arameans_Iraq_Persecutions_Killings_Ethnic_Cleansing_29_12_2010.htm

 

In case of Syria, the “Assyrian” organization that has been involved with terrorism, the Assyrian Democratic Organization (ADO) is being used by their Western masters to exterminate the Arameans of Syria. http://www.aramnahrin.org/English/Arameans_Middle_East_Marriage_MuslimBrotherhood_ADO_13_12_2011.htm

 

In December 2011 the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman took a journey to the middle-east. On 5th of December 2011, a article was published entitled, “Feltman in Beirut on Wednesday, Says U.S. Has Evidence that Hizbullah Helping Assad”

http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/22265-feltman-in-beirut-on-wednesday-says-u-s-has-evidence-that-hizbullah-helping-assad

 

We read amongst others: Feltman told reporters that Washington has been in touch with Syrian Christians to prod them "not to stand on the side of the attacker," but declined to elaborate.

 

Who are these “Syrian Christians” Washington is in touch with? Well, most probably nobody but their own spiritual children, namely the apostate Arameans who call themselves “Assyrians”.

 

One ponders what really is going on in the minds of this “Assyrians” who seem to have no sense of morality and responsibility. Are they so demonized by fanaticism, injected in their hearts and minds from their childhood, that they cannot think normal anymore? What is going on in the inner core of this people? Is there nobody who can tell to these misguided souls, “Fools, what are you doing?”

 

Any normal human being would first analyze what the odious evil powers have done to Libya, before jumping on the bandwagon of “democracy” and singing “Liberation of Syria”.

 

What these evil powers have done is simply destroying the country. http://www.rt.com/news/libya-tribal-clashes-war-350/

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=26686

 

And this will be also repeated in Syria. And the apostate Arameans who call themselves “Assyrians” are responsible for the coming bloodbaths, destruction of churches, ethnic cleansing of Arameans and the complete destruction of Syria by their evil colonial masters and creators

http://www.aramnahrin.org/English/Arameans_Syria_Genocide_Media_28_6_2012.htm

 

And what do we see today in Syria? Exact repetition of Iraq! And how about the unholy colonial anti-Aramean product “Assyrians”? Well, they act as usual........ dumb!!!
