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

Special UN envoy to Iraq, Mr. Ad Melkert, wants extra
protection for the Aramean Christians in Iraq.
Mr. Ad Melkert, the

Release yesterday (see below) that the Iraqi government should
redouble the efforts to protect Aramean and other minorities in
On Sunday 12-7-2009 in an orchestrated attack, seven Aramean
churches were hit by car bombs.
The Arameans of
Mesopotamia, the original inhabitants of Iraq – in ancient times
called Aram-Nahrin in Aramaic and Aram-Naharaim in Hebrew, are
now strangers in the lands of their forefathers and are
threatened with extinction and ethnic cleansing by forces and
ideologies who have never heard of the words like “peace”,
“cooperation” and “human rights”.
The Aramean people of
Iraq also made known in some media as “Assyrians” or Chaldeans
are present since thousands of years in the area of the two
rivers. Because of overwhelming presence of the Arameans in the
cradle of civilization,
the southern part of it Aram-Nahrin was called “Beth- Aramaye”, that
means the house of the Arameans in Aramaic.
Unfortunately, the house
of the Arameans has been burglarized by forces who just seem to
have one goal in their mind and that is: to drive out as soon as
possible the original owners of “Beth-
Aramaye” in order to assume it for themselves. To achieve
this, all means are allowed, they eschew nothing. Already,
more than the half of the Arameans left Iraq.
In spite of wars, persecutions, pogroms and bloodbaths of the
past centuries, they were able to survive under very
difficult circumstances. With the fall of regime of Saddam
Hussein, the situation of the Arameans of Iraq started to
deteriorate. The fanatical and hateful black forces of
intolerance, until then kept under control by Saddam Hussein,
attained freedom to unleash their hatred against the defenseless
and peacful minded Aramean indigenous people of Aram-Nahrin.
This resulted in the attacks on the churches and the killings of
the spiritual and lay leaders. We enumerate few examples:
These brutal killings resulted in that
hundreds of thousands Arameans left Iraq for Syria, Jordan and
Another point is that because the Arameans in
general are skillful and hardworking people, their economic
situation is much better than others. For this reason they are
being targeted by ordinary criminals, thieves, Islamic
terrorists, political powers and other interested groups who
consider the defenseless Arameans as an easy prey in a area
where the low of the jungle seems to be the rule.
Iraqi Christians need better protection, UN envoy
says after deadly bombings
13 July 2009 – The top United Nations
envoy to Iraq today called for a redoubling of efforts to
protect the country’s Christians, as well as its other minority
communities, following a series of “orchestrated” bombings over
the weekend that hit several churches.

“This campaign is
aimed at terrorizing vulnerable groups and preventing the
peaceful coexistence of different religious groups in what is
one of the world’s cradles of religious and ethnic diversity,”
said Ad Melkert, the newly-appointed Secretary-General’s Special
Representative for Iraq.
Mr. Melkert, who
also heads the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI),
called on all parties, including the Government, to redouble
their efforts to protect minorities in the country.

diversity, he added.
An upsurge in
attacks, threats and intimidation had forced more than 12,000
Christians to flee Mosul – Iraq’s second largest city – last
October. Some of them later returned after hearing that the
security situation had improved.
