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: We have left behind a "sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq"

 

 Dutch Version

 

The heading of this article are the words spoken by president Obama on 14th of December 2011 regarding ending of US military operations in Iraq. See more on this issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D08BB-Gw0-M&feature=player_embedded#!

http://www.taiwannews.com.tw/etn/news_content.php?id=1787823

 

A “sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq?” This is must be a joke! And most probably Mr. Obama himself does not believe these words he spoke, because the reality on the ground is completely contrary to these “nice” words. If Mr. Obama wanted to be honest and slightly trustworthy, then a sentence like this would represent much better the reality on the ground in Iraq, namely: “We have destroyed and wrecked a prosperous country, poisoned it with Uranium, killed more than one million Iraqi citizens, made countless widows, made thousands children orphans, made millions Iraqi refugees, destroyed the Aramean presence in Iraq and expelled more than the half of indigenous Aramean population out of their lands. We recently applied this technology of devastation and destruction in Libya and want to repeat this technology now also in Syria”.

 

The situation in Iraq is far from “safe, stable and self-reliant”. On the contrary, the country is on the brink of civil war, to be divided in three parts, bomb attacks are daily news and central government is too weak and divided to maintain order and stability. The statement of Mr. Hussein Obama was soon refuted by the reality on the ground by bomb attacks and bloodbaths. Below we mention few examples:

 

1. Thursday 22nd of December 2011: 69 people killed by 16 bomb attacks in Baghdad.

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2012/02/201221910443326732.html

 

And the list goes on. From the beginning of objectionable colonial invasion in Iraq, their main goal was extermination, weakening and devastation of the once prosperous Iraq and it had nothing to do with human rights and democracy. These are magic words to blind and fool the public, including the apostate Arameans who call themselves “Assyrians”. The same rhetoric of “human rights”, “protecting civilians” and “democracy” was applied to destroy Libya and plunder the resources. The same odious colonial powers have now aimed their arrows of “human rights”, “democracy” and “protecting civilians” on Syria.

 

Aramean Christians of Iraq celebrate Christmas 2011 with fear

 

The coming of Americans and British, the creators and colonial masters of the apostate Arameans who call themselves “Assyrians”, resulted in the downfall of Arameans of Iraq. Under watchful eyes of Americans, our clergy were killed, the churches burned or blown up, their men and sons killed and their women and daughters raped and the majority of the nation was forced into diaspora. The hatred against Aramean indigenous nation of Iraq was fostered in such a way that they by now are not taken serious anymore, are unwanted, marginalized and are used as play thing in the hands of others to use them for their own benefit.

 

In the times of Saddam Hussein, Aramean and other Christians could unhindered celebrate their holy days in public. The coming of colonial powers to Iraq brutally and in al cruelty ended these freedoms. It has now even became so worse that the Arameans of Iraq were advised to celebrate Christmas in their homes. In a article published on 24th of December 2011 titled, “Terror kills Christmas in Baghdad as Muslim fanatics force Christians underground”, we read: "We have told everyone that there should be no public parties or large gatherings and people should do their own celebrations in their homes," said Ra'ad Emmanuel, the head of the government-backed Iraqi Christian Endowment http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/terror-kills-christmas-in-baghdad-as-muslim-fanatics-force-christians-underground/story-e6frg6so-1226229654514

 

Mr. Emmanuel further says: "After Saddam fell, Christians were targeted and attacked because everyone thought we were somehow attached to the Americans but the truth is that the US did not do anything for the Christians," Mr Emmanuel said.

 

What Mr. Emmanuel and many others with him “forget” to mention is that the tough and unbearable situation Arameans of Iraq are finding themselves in, is for the major part caused by spiritual fornication of the apostate Arameans who identify themselves as “Assyrians”, with Mr. Bush and Blair. See more on this issue: http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/Arameans_Iraq_Persecutions_Killings_Ethnic_Cleansing_29_12_2010.htm

 

"A lot of Christians worked for the Americans as translators or in other roles but the Americans have actually left us in a much worse state than we were under Saddam”

 

Not only Christians but also Muslims who worked with Americans were killed because of their cooperation with invading colonial powers.

 

In many churches the Christmas midnight service was cancelled because of safety fears, like for example in Kerkuk: http://www.acnuk.org/news.php/301/iraq-midnight-mass-is-cancelled-amid-safety-fears

 

Residence of Archbishop of Kerkuk of Mgr. Louis Sako attacked

 

The Americans left behind in Iraq power vacuum that could not be filled up by the Iraqi security forces. For this reason the minorities in Iraq, such as Arameans, are an easy target for thieves, terrorists and others who don’t appreciate their presence in Iraq. In addition, they do not have their own militia to defend themselves and are trusted to the mercy of those who apply the law of the jungle.

On 11th of January 2012, the residence of the East- Aramean Chaldean bishop of Kerkuk, Mgr. Louis Sako was attacked by three armed gunmen. Following gunfight, two of the three attackers were killed and one was captured.

Depleted Uranium and extermination of the life in Iraq.

 

In our analysis of 2010 we elaborated on Depleted Uranium (DU) and deformed Iraqi children and adults: http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/Arameans_Iraq_Persecutions_Killings_Ethnic_Cleansing_29_12_2010.htm#3_5

 

Regularly, reports are published in media concerning the horrific effects of DU in Iraq. On 6th of January 2012 a article was published by AlJazeera online titled: Fallujah babies: Under a new kind of siege. Doctors and residents blame US weapons for catastrophic levels of birth defects in Fallujah's newborns

 

We read amongst others:

 

1). “Fallujah, Iraq - While the US military has formally withdrawn from Iraq, doctors and residents of Fallujah are blaming weapons like depleted uranium and white phosphorous used during two devastating US attacks on Fallujah in 2004 for what are being described as 'catastrophic' levels of birth defects and abnormalities.

 

Dr Samira Alani, a paediatric specialist at Fallujah General Hospital, has taken a personal interest in investigating an explosion of congenital abnormalities that have mushroomed in the wake of the US sieges since 2005”

 

When the Americans invaded Iraq in 2003 they started using armor that was reinforced with DU enhancing its penetration capabilities. This resulted in that water, air and food of Iraq was poisoned with DU. The effects of DU on Iraqi population is absolutely horrific and disgraceful. The defenseless Iraqi people are exposed to a terrible invisible genocide.

 

2) "One of them was born and looks like a fish ... In April 2011, Iraqi lawmakers debated whether the US attacks on the city constituted genocide. Resolutions that called for international prosecution, however, went nowhere."

 

Some are indeed aware of this abominable silent genocide taking place in Iraq and tried to persecute those responsible for it. So far unfortunately no any result was obtained.

 

3) "Alani and Busby, along with other doctors and researchers, published a study in September 2011 from data obtained by analysing the hair samples, as well as soil and water samples from the city. Mercury, Uranium, Bizmuth and other trace elements were found. The report's conclusion states ... 'none of the elements found in excess are reported to cause congenital diseases and cancer except Uranium, these findings suggest the enriched Uranium exposure is either a primary cause or related to the cause of the congenital anomaly and cancer increases. Questions are thus raised about the characteristics and composition of weapons now being deployed in modern battlefields. As doctors, we know Mercury, Uranium and Bismuth can contribute to the development of congenital abnormalities, and we think it could be related to the use of prohibited weapons by the Americans during these battles', Alani said."

 

Children are now born with ‘no expectation of life’. Over 20 years most probably all the Iraqis will be faced with horrible effects of DU and will be marked as ‘no expectation of life’ through which the country will be completely deprived of its citizens.

 

There have been several people, specialized in International Law, who from the beginning have utterly rejected the invasion of America and their allies .One of this lawyers is professor Francis A. Boyle.

 

On 17-20 November 2011 professor Boyle issued a complaint against US and Great Britain with Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal.

On 19th of January 2010 professor Boyle even requested the International Criminal Court in The Hague (The Netherlands) to arrest the members of Bush Administration. http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=17091

 

Conclusion

 

The purposeful destruction and poisoning of Iraq, ruining of the infrastructure, stimulating of mutual division and hatred between various communities in Iraq and shedding of thousands liters of blood by the American invasion in Iraq in 2003 will at the end lead to the complete downfall of the country resulting in division of Iraq in three parts, namely: Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish part. The remaining Aramean indigenous nation of Iraq have in fact two choices, that is to say: To completely get rid of the horrific colonial heritage and unify under the Aramean heritage and flag or else face the complete extermination! A special section of our website is dealing with the Aramean indigenous nation of Iraq:  http://www.iraqichristians.info/English/iraqichristians.htm

 

In various analyses in the past years we have postulated that the downfall and extermination of the Aramean nation of Middle-East, the loss of their lands, dignity and honor and their Diaspora is mainly caused by the colonial activities of France and United Kingdom. The lugubrious colonial activities of UK are very well known among many indigenous nations worldwide. Everywhere they came, they wreaked havoc among the original inhabitants, exterminated them, put their children in camps and ruined their cultures, traditions and history. Also the Aramean indigenous nation became victim of this horrible spiritual cultural genocide and extermination. The part of the Aramean nation that identify themselves as “Assyrians”, are a creation of UK, meant to exterminate and annihilate our nation.

 

If we carefully examine the fruits of these apostate Arameans who call themselves “Assyrians”, it will became clear that they are the main cause to the downfall of our nation in the lands of our forefathers. To cover up their evil activities, under guidance of their colonial Western masters and creators, they blame and attack other nations in the region for the misfortune of our people and with that they make many enemies. They are a useful tool in the hands of colonial powers!

 

As long as our nation tolerate the apostate Arameans who call themselves “Assyrians”- that is the colonial product of extermination- there will be no ending to their problems in the lands of the forefathers as well as in the diaspora. To explain this, we refer to the following analysis:

 

The bitter fruits of the spiritual colonial intervention: A monstrous covenant between the PKK and the organization of the apostate Arameans who identify themselves as “Assyrians”, namely: The Assyrian Democratic Organisation
