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. In Turkey, the Arameans are called: Süryani. In Arabic they are called Al- Suryan.

Arameans of Iraq: the tears of Archbishop Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf, liberation and devastation of Mosul

 Dutch Version

Archbishop Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf inspects completely vandalized St. Afrem Cathedral in Mosul.

When in 2014 the by the Western colonial powers created, trained and armed ISIS/ISIL terrorists (here, here and here) entered Mosul, the Arameans (fake: “Assyrians”) and other “undesired ones” at the very last moment could escape the city. Their homes and properties were confiscated by ISIS/ISIL terrorists. The Aramean churches were vandalized, blown up, desecrated and used as place of shelter by the terrorists. Following the invasion of Mosul, the Aramean cities/villages in de plain of Nineveh were invaded as well through which the Arameans and others were forced to flee to more safe areas in the northern Iraq.



After partial liberation of Mosul by Iraqi army, on 5th of February 2017 the Aramean archbishops of Mosul Mgr. Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf and Mgr. Mousa al Shamhani of St. Matta Monastery visited the Aramean cathedral of Mosul.


He was shocked to see that the Cathedral was heavily damaged. Therefore bishop Sharaf could not control his emotions and burst into tears about the Cathedral of St. Afrem.


The tears of Mgr. Nicodemus Sharaf tell also something about the downfall of Aramean Christianity in Iraq. Before liberation (= destruction) of Iraq by the Americans in 2003, there were about 800.000 Arameans divided over 6 denomination. Before the arrival of Americans in Iraq there was no such thing as “Al Qaeda” or other Islamic terrorist group. The terrorism took root in Iraq after so-called “liberation” of the country by Americans and their allies.

Mgr. Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf could not control his emotions and cried about the devastation of Cathedral.


Under the watchful eyes of the invading powers, the Arameans of Iraq were threatened, harassed, kidnapped, killed, their homes, properties and lands confiscated, their churches blown up and burned down, their clergy abducted and killed. This has resulted in that the major part of our people in Iraq were forced to leave behind the indigenous lands of their forefathers, they have been inhabiting for thousands of years, and fled to the Western countries.


 Beside Mgr. Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf, there are also some sincere Western Christians expressing their concerns regarding the Aramean (fake “Assyrian”) Christians in Iraq.


On 21 of March 2017 Foxnews published an interview with Canon Andrew White, representative of Anglican church in Baghdad, entitled “Christianity in Iraq is finished, says Canon Andrew White, 'vicar of Baghdad.

In 2014 Mr. White left Iraq for security reasons.


On the situation of the Aramean Christians in Iraq he says: “The time has come where it is over, no Christians will be left. Some stay Christians should stay to maintain the historical presence, but it has become very difficult. The future for the community is very limited….. The Christians coming out of Iraq and ISIS areas in the Middle East all say the same thing, there is no way they are ever going back. They have had enough.


This is the result, beloved reader, of the unholy activities of the colonial Western illuminati powers to cause all over the world chaos, bloodbaths, misery and mass immigrations for the establishment of the unholy kingdom of antichrist, the new world order.


Mr. White appeals to the American Christians saying: If there is anything I can tell Americans it is that your fellow brothers and sisters are suffering, they are desperate for help


The majority of Western Christianity has been unfortunately taken over by the illuminati Satanists (here, here, here, here, here).Therefore one should not expect large-scale help. That explains also the quietness of the Western church regarding what is happening in the Middle-East.


The extermination and disappearance of the Aramean Christianity of Iraq is exclusively caused by the objectionable, division promoting, hate generating and spiritual fornication of the apostate occult Arameans, who wo identify themselves “Assyrians”, with their Western colonial illuminati masters. Their masters use them as a tool to divide and exterminate the Aramean indigenous nation. They welcomed their masters Bush and Blair to please come to Iraq to liberate them from that “ruthless dictator” Saddam Hussein (here, here). Result of this fornication: unprecedented bloodbaths, slaughtering, chaos, stream of refugees, burning down/ destruction of churches/ mosques, ethnic cleansing, poisoning with depleted uranium and extermination of life.


On the number of remaining Arameans in Iraq we read: “Thirty years ago, there were approximately 1.4 million Christians in Iraq. The number dwindled to around 1 million after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, and a year ago it was estimated that there were less than 250,000 left………..


From the beginning we warned about the spiritual fornication of the “Assyrian” terrorists and that this fornication would finally result in the downfall of the Aramean people. Unfortunately this has become reality if we look at what is happening to our people in Iraq and Syria.


On April 7, 2017, the national Catholic Register published an interview with the Aramean archbishop Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf entitled “Iraqi Orthodox Bishop: The West Cares More About Frogs Than Us.


Regarding his criticism on the West, we read: “…he said, citing an example, that the developed world places the welfare of frogs ahead of Christians, that the West needs to wake up to the threat of Islamism, and blamed past U.S. leaders and their allies for ruining his country…….”


the West needs to wake up to the threat of Islamism.....?” Archbishop Sharaf does not understand anything of the satanic demonic plot against the Aramean nation which is still going on. But of course the West knows very well who the Islamists are, because they are the by the West created, trained and armed killing machines. Everywhere in de world they are being used by the West to wreak havoc, destabilise countries and create chaos to bring about change of regime as preparation for the coming kingdom of antichrist, the new world order (NWO).




About his conversation with the American consul, he says: When I met the American consul, I told him we need international guarantees, protection, anyone to protect us. If not, we get another ISIS after a few months, and we will get another one under a new name….. He said it’s difficult to put soldiers there. I told him we don’t need soldiers, we need the same air plan that stopped ISIS coming to Erbil at midnight [in 2014]. We want the same air plan to stop them coming to our villages again. He said they’re ready, but there are no guarantees.


The ISIS/ISIL terrorists could only enter Mosul and the plain of Nineveh thanks to the approval and support of Americans.


Fides News Agency reported on 8-8-2014 the story of an Aramean woman from Qaraqosh/ Baghdeda in an article entitled “Kurden ziehen sich aus Qaraqosh zurück: gab es dafür einen amerikanischen Befehl?”: I have asked the members of Kurdish Peshmerge militia, who previously had defended Qaraqosh, why in view of the advance of the fighters of Caliphate they had withdrawn from the city. The answer was that the withdrawal took place because of orders they had received from American commandos who are deployed in the Iraqi Kurdish area”


The Kurds would never have done this on their own, they were ordered to do so! There was a clear criminal plan behind the expelling of the Arameans from Mosul and plain of Nineveh. Behind the scenes, the Americans guided the invasion of Mosul and the Aramean bishop Sharaf is asking Americans for help to return to Mosul? It is the same if you would ask a fox to please come and guard de henhouse.


They all know, including the former Iraqi prime minister and current vice-president Nouri Al Mailiki, who the masters and creators are of the ISIL/ISIS terrorists.

According to Maliki, the reason behind the invasion of Mosul in 2014 was a punishment for the Iraqi policy regarding Syria.

He says: “…IS was created to counter the Iraqi stance, which did not agree to blockade Syria, was against no-fly zones in Syria and against American military bases


West- Aramean Syrian Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai visits Nicolas Sarkozy on 5th of September 2011 in Paris in Elysee Palace.

The plan to clean the Middle-east of the Christian Arameans (fake: “Assyrians”) is not new!

In 2011, the West-Aramean Maronite Patriarch Beshara Boutrus Rai visited the former French President Sarkozy. During the meeting with Patriarch Rai, it is claimed that Sarkozy told Patriarch: Given that there are 1.3 million Christians in Lebanon and 1.5 million in Syria, why don’t Christians move to Europe, since Europe has absorbed 2 million Christian immigrants from Iraq?”


The number of “2 million” is exaggerated, there were originally not so much! In addition, not all of them have emigrated to the West. What we try to clarify here is that there is since long time a plan in operation to dispose the Middel-East of the Aramean and other Christians.


The East- Aramean Patriarch Raphael Louis Sako of the Chaldean Church of Babylon stated on 3rd of July 2017 that: The most painful issue that has hit the Iraqi Christian communities in recent years was their mass escape from Mosul and Nineveh Plain, when entire villages were evacuated one night before the advance of the Jihadist militia of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (Daesh), and many family groups "were encouraged by Western Countries to emigrate."


That “encouragement to emigrate” was to execute the criminal demonic plan that has been on the table for a long time.


On the policy of Americans in Iraq, archbishop Sharaf says: “…..The old political way of Obama, Clinton and Bush, the father and the son, destroyed our life, destroyed our country. You know, we lost everything, we lost our churches, monasteries, houses, everything, even our dignity ……….. Yes, they’re responsible, and those who helped America, for destroying our life, destroying our country. They should rebuild our country if they believe in human rights. I don’t believe in these two words, there are no human rights. But in Western countries, there are animal rights.”


These are the bad fruits of the spiritual fornication of the occult Aramean who call themselves “Assyrians”, the spiritual children of Nimrod and Samiramis, the whore of Babylon (here, here). They committed fornication with their colonial illuminati Western masters and creators to topple the regime of Saddam Hussein and bring so-called “democracy and human rights” to Iraq. And the result is just horrible!


There is however also a spiritual dimension playing here important role (here, here). There is really a reason why the Aramean people since centuries is being persecuted, terrorized, killed, expelled and ethnically cleansed. All these horrors do not happen without reason, including the recent confiscation of 50 Aramean churches, monasteries and graveyards in Turkey.


Liberation of Mosul


On 9th of July 2017 Premier of Iraq, Haidar Al Abadi announced victory of Mosul from the ISIS/ISIL terrorists. On 10th of July 2017 Al Abadi told a Christian delegation in Mosul: “…that all displaced people and the sons of religions, nationalities and creeds come back, including Christian Brothers in particular, to their homes in Mosul…




The liberation of Mosul have devastated the city. Much work have to be done before people can return to Mosul. Hopefully the government of Premier Al Abadi shall improve the security in Mosul and surrounding areas so that the displaced people, where possible, can return to the city. Also, we hope that Al Abadi will keep his word to create conditions so that the Arameans can return to Mosul including those who had to flee to foreign countries.


The ISIS/ISIL terrorists are unfortunately not completely expelled out of the city. According to Vice-president Nouri Al MalikiThe victory is yet not final…..still small terrorist hubs in the city


The East-Aramean Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako is cautious about returning to Mosul: “This war is not finished yet, and the Islamic State [militant group] is not finished. There is not stability, and there is still fighting in Mosul. If there is no stability in the region, how can the Christians come back? The return of Christians to Mosul needs time. Trust must be built, because the Christians of this region have endured such abuse and violence, which has left deep wounds.


Ruins of Mosul



Despite uncertainty and safety risks, some Aramean families dare to take a chance and return to their cities in de plain of Nineveh. This is a hopeful sign.


The Baghdad Post reported on 21st of July 2017 in an article entitled “Will stability bring back Christians to their homes in Nineveh”: Tens of Christian families are beginning to return to their historic al-Hamdaniya district in eastern Mosul. Christian civilians are currently restoring, rebuilding their homes, infrastructure and destroyed governmental buildings by both ISIS and Iraqi forces. Over 500 Christian families chose to leave the displacement camps and take the challenge of rebuilding, bringing back their neighborhoods and their ways of life…..”


Reuters reported earlier on 18th of April 2017 in an article entitled “Iraqi Christians return to ransacked town with fear and hope” over de terugkeer van de Aramese families naar Qaraqosh”: With Islamic State expelled, Iraqi Christians are trickling back to the ransacked town of Qaraqosh…. In the desecrated churches of Qaraqosh, Christians are busy removing graffiti daubed by the Sunni Muslim militants during two and a half years of control…”


The Aramean city Baghdeda is also known as “Qaraqosh” and “al Hamdaniya.” The city was inhabited by 50.000 Aramean, particularly Aramean Syrian Catholics.


The online misinformation and fake news website “Wikipedia” designates unfortunately the Aramean inhabitants of Baghdeda/ Qaraqosh/ al- Hamdaniya as “Assyrians.” This Arameaophobia is done with purpose to misguide the reader. Wikipedia has unfortunately become “Wickedpedia” if we look at the fake information it spreads regarding the Aramean nation.


Hopefully the security will improve so that more Arameans will return to their homes in de plain of Nineveh. This may motivate the Arameans who fled to the West to return to their cities, villages in their ancestral lands as well.


We go back to the tears of bishop Sharaf. The tears of Mgr. Nicodemus Sharaf are not only for the destruction of the Aramean Cathedral of Mosul but for whole Iraq where the country is devastated by the colonial Western powers. The destruction of Iraq was carried out in agreement with the criminal demonic plan, concocted in the demented laboratories of the Western colonial powers. The apostate Arameans who identify themselves as “Assyrians” have carried out the role, assigned to them, with happiness in the realisation of the downfall of Iraq.
