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.


Aramean priest beheaded in Mosul (Iraq)

 

 

Father Paulus Iskandar, of the West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox of Mosul.


Mosul (Iraq)- Today (12-10-2006) we received the heartbreaking news from Mosul (confirmed at 11:10 hour by phone) that a Aramean priest, father Paulus Iskandar, was kidnapped on Monday 9-10-2006 between 10.00-11.00 hour by a unknown Islamic group in Mosul and was beheaded. He was kidnapped in the district “Al- Sina’a” in Mosul. Today at 13.00 hour (Iraqi time); the funeral of the father will take place.

 

In Iraq, there are various Aramean denominations, to mention:

 

  • West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox, around 80.000

  • West- Aramean Syrian Catholics, around 40.00

  • West- Aramean Syrian Melkites??????

  • East- Aramean Syrian Nestorian “Chaldeans, around 250.000- 300.000

  • East- Aramean Syrian Nestorian “Assyrians”, around 25.000-30.000

 Father Iskandar was an important priest of the West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch of the St. Afrem church in Mosul.

There has been few times contact with the kidnappers. First time, they asked to condemn the statements of Pope Benedictus done in Germany by hanging up banners on the walls of the St. Afrem church; which was complied by the church. After this, the kidnappers contacted the church and asked for 250.000 dollar ransom. The third time they called and told that the priest was slaughtered and the ransom was not needed anymore. His body was found in the district of “Hay Al- Kahira” with the head nearest to the body.

 

As it is known, the situation in Iraq is horrific; daily attempts to murder, suicide car bombs, flying around parts of human bodies and crying of mothers and children for the lost beloved ones. Heartbreaking scenes!

 

As to the Aramean Christians ( including “Assyrians” and Chaldeans) the situation is more severe, for the Islamic groups see their chance to bring into practice their hatred against the Christianity and statements of the pope are only used as excuses!

 

Kidnapping, rapping of the women’s and girls, confiscations of properties; stealing and terror against the defenceless Aramean indigenous Christian people are the daily scenes.

 

The contribution of the Western Christianity

 

In our analyse of 10-10-2006 concerning malicious and falsely presentation of the Aramean people in Holland by the “Netwerk” broadcasting as “Assyrians” and Aramean genocide as “Assyrian genocide”; we showed you the horrible hatred amongst the Arameans nation created by the Western Christendom. As far as we concern, from the spiritual point of view, the broadcasting program “Netwerk” can be considered responsible for this murder! And why is that so?

 Hatred

Many of you don’t know the intangible, unutterable hatred, created by the missionaries the Aramean denominations nourish against each other. The Catholic nourish a deep contempt towards orthodox. The assyrians consider themselves as superior; yes and they even are encouraged by the western Christianity to continue on the path of the lie of which the broadcasting program “Netwerk” was a proof of this. The Chaldeans join the club!

You can say whatever you want; however the most silent and moderate group, who were despised and disregarded and forced into the corner by the West, and try under very heavy conditions to follow the Jesus Christ of the Bible, are the West- Aramean Syrian Orthodox. Their situation is miserable! The slaughtered priest Paulus was one of them!

 

To repeat the matter

 

1. Professor John Joseph wrote a brilliant and standard work on the mission activities of the western missionaries in the middle-east; in particular among the East- Aramean Nestorians. The Dutch journalist Albert Stol summarising in his book, “Nestorians, de ondergang van een christenvolk” page 15-19 of the book of John Joseph  says, “While the name "Chaldeans" (1552) was related to those who were united with Rome, the twin name "Assyrians" (19th century) was given to the Nestorians, who began henceforth also to use this name. Like the Roman-Catholic church had popularised the name "Chaldeans", in the same way the Anglican (=English) mission did with the name "Assyrians" "

The war and hatred between the Anglican Church and Catholic Church was battled out at the cost of the Aramean nation. The Catholics (together with France) promoted their product “Chaldeans” and Anglicans (with Great Britain) promoted their product “Assyrians”. Both parties asserted to act in behalf of “Jesus”. However, this was not Jesus Christ of the Bible; but an “other” Jesus; namely: the powerful Jesus of the West.

 

Surprise … surprise

 

Do you know that in the new Iraqi constitution, the Aramean people of Mesopotamia are excluded? Guess who is included! Read yourself:

In Article 124 we read,, This Constitution shall guarantee the administrative, political, cultural and educational rights for the various nationalities, such as Turkmen, Caldeans, Assyrians and all other components. A law shall regulate this

 

Coincidence that the product the Western spiritual colonisation and slavery of England and France are included?

 

2. The Forgotten Genocide: Eastern Christians, The Last Arameans is a scientific analyse from the hands of Sebatien de Courtios concerning the forgotten Aramean genocide. De Courtois pays attention to the activities of the Western missionaries in Turkey, in particular amongst the Syrian Orthodox. A few interesting examples will be quoted from the book of de Courtois to describe the behaviour of ,,Jesus of the West”:

 

About the establishment of the Syrian – Catholic Church de Courtios says,, The first [Syrian] Catholic Patriarch had been consecrated in Aleppo in 1662 with French help through the mediation of Ambassador Francois Picquet (page 33)…. .. which was encouraged by French diplomats present in Aleppo at that time. The diplomats favored the separation in the hope of one day uniting the Eastern Churches with that of Rome (XiX).. The Catholic mission activities were strongly supported by French Ministry of Foreign Affairs policy, which had been reinforced in the region by creation in 1856 of a vice-consulate in Diyarbekir at the request of the Vatican (page. 36)

 

See here dear reader, how the powerful ,,Jesus of the West” have amalgamated the spiritual and secular powers to weaken the Aramean people of Mesopotamia under the cover of ,,unity”. This kind of unholy ,,evangelism” has been misused by ,,Jesus of the West” to plant his ideology of ,,dividing and ruling” in the middle-east resulting in great consequences for the Aramean nation.

3. The East- Arameans were also called ,,Nestorians”. This Nestorians were present in Hakkaria mountains (bordering Turkije- Irak), Irak and Iran. The American professor John Joseph has published a extraordinary scientific standard book about the behavior of the Western missionaries amongst the East- Aramean Nestorians in Irak, Iran and Hakkaria. The title of the book is,, The Modern Assyrians of the Middle East”, Encounters with Western Christian Missions, Archaeologists, & Colonial powers In his book John Joseph quotes original sources to describe the behavior of the missionaries. On page 133 we read about their activities in Urmia (Iran),, Other western- supported congregations began to proliferate early in the twentieth century. A Swedish- American “Augustuna Synod” employed a Nestorian priest who conducted two day-schools. The Evangelical Association for Advancement of the Nestorian Church, founded at Berlin in 1906, employed a Nestorian priest who had Lutheran training in Germany. For about 10 years a German Orient Mission maintained an orphanage outside Urmiyah for Nestorian refugees from mountains. The English Plymouth Brethren employed a few priests in a mission of their own. Other smaller missions were connected with the American Dunkards, the Holiness Methodists, the American Southern Baptists and Northern Baptists, and the English Congregationalists. There was perhaps no missionary field in the world where there were so many rival “Christian” forces at work as were found in urmiya at the beginning of this century; all struggling to get predominance among these few people

 

All these ,,Christian” groups were there to bring the ,,light” from the West to the east, that means: to enlighten the east with the ideology of ,,Jesus of the West”; only then, according to the missionaries you would be saved from damnation.

 

The aforementioned three examples only show the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to the this kind of “work”; unbridgeable hatred is created within the Aramean nation which simple maintained and glorified by the broadcasting program “Netwerk” on Monday 9-10-2006. Indeed it is their own product and they glorify at any costs.
