To those living in the United States, we ask that you contact your Representatives and urge them to cosponsor H.CON.RES.110, a resolution "Calling for urgent international intervention on behalf of Iraqi Christians and religious minority communities facing a dire humanitarian crisis and severe persecution in the Nineveh Plain region of Iraq."
This is an open invitation to all Supporters of the Assyrians and other Christians of Iraq. Due to the chaotic crisis caused by the invasion and occupation of Mosul and Nineveh Plain and some Iraqi cities by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the vulnerable and the already oppressed Assyrian people of Iraq are becoming an easy target of the Islamic extremists who are branded for being inhuman and brutal. According to most verifiable accounts, the militants who have swept across eastern Syria and western Iraq appear to have not engaged in widespread violence against the region’s Christians, known collectively as the Assyrians. But what is certain, is that tens of thousands of Christian refugees have already fled the area, mostly to the Kurdish region, as electricity, water and paid work is increasingly scarce.
World War I as thought of as an Islamic jihad and or a Christian crusade is in essence very similar, but it involved diverse nations of differing historical background and from opposing regions of the world. Although the terms jihad or crusade had a religious connotation, the actual dealings, which occurred, by the Ottomans and the British were based on interests, benefits, strategy, and not necessarily religion. These religious ideas were used to rationalize war against a perceived enemy. The ordinary individual on both sides and his religious passions were sparked by these religious philosophies, which were used by their leaders to start conflict and continue it for the benefit of the heads of these empires. It is not the ordinary individual who benefited from war rather the planers and thinkers who use ordinary people to condition them to do their dirty work. History is repeating itself as ISIS is doing this today in Mosul, Iraq and other regions against the Assyrian Christians, the Indigenous people of Nineveh. It must be stated that ISIS itself is a tool in the hands of the same schemers who since 2003 until today have been terrorizing, displacing, and killing Assyrian Christians. One must ask the question of who is benefiting from these criminal acts and then we will know who is responsible.
The coalition of supporters for the March 9th "Stop the Christian Genocide in Syria" protest outside the Turkish Consulate in Los Angeles, California, continues to grow, with the American Mesopotamian Organization joining the cause.
MP George Galloway, in a moving speech on Press TV defends the Christians of the Maaloula Town in Syria against Al Qaeda forces hired by Obama.
George Galloway is a British politician, writer, and broadcaster, and the Respect Party Member of British Parliament for Bradford West. Mr. Galloway is known as a brave man, who tells the truth no matter what the consequences.
Devastated by the recent rebel attacks on Christian villages and churches in Syria, especially the Christian town of Maaloula, the Assyrians among all Syrian Christians, say no to U.S. strike on Syria. The Assyrian community around the world and on the social networks is sharing and signing the MoveOn.org petition by Rachel Royce which is to be delivered to the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate, and President Barack Obama.
President Obama, John Kerry, John McCain and Lindsey Graham are all peddling the anti-Syrian government line and now they have a beloved "red line," whereby they can assist the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and various al-Qaeda terrorist groups. Of course, when Carla del Ponte stated earlier this year that the United Nations believed that terrorist forces had used chemical weapons; then, of course, this was conveniently ignored by America, France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Similarly, it appears that Obama, Kerry, McCain and Graham don’t believe in a red line when it applies to al-Qaeda affiliates, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and other terrorist forces.
