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.

أننا نود أن نعلمكم أن الكتاب الذي اصدرته الأمانة العامة بتاريخ 17 – 5 – 2005 ووقعه أخينا الحبر الجليل مار ثاوفيلوس جورج صليبا مطران جبل لبنان بصفته سكرتير المجمع المقدس ، هو كتاب شرعي مستند إلى دستور كنيستنا ويوضح فيه أنه بناء على قرار مجمعنا المقدس في دورة استثنائية من 29 أذار وحتى 1 نيسان 2005 ، لا يحق لنيافة المطران مار يوليوس عيسى جيجك إصدار أية كتب ينتج عنها خلافات وانشقاقات في كنائس الابرشية ، لذا نأمل اعتماد كتاب الأمانة العامة لمجمعنا المقدس كوثيقة رسمية صادرة عنه ونصادق عليه .

ولسادتكم مزيد الشكر والإكرام .

The Most Honorouble Dr. Anton Stifter- Vienna


We bring over to you our blessing and prayer and say:


Thank you very much for your letter of 24-6-2005, which we and the secretariat have received at our meeting which took place under our chairmanship in the St. Aphrem the Syrian monastery in Mara’at Sehidnaya- Damascus; on 27-7-2005. We would like to give explanation about the letter of the secretariat issued on the date 17-5-2005 (and) signed by our honourable brother Mor Theophilius George Saliba, the bishop of the Mount- Lebanon, who is the secretary of the Holy Synod; the letter is legal and in agreement with the law of our church and in the letter it is explained that according the decision of the special Synod (took place) on 29-3 to 1-4-2005, bishop Mor Julius Isa Cicek has no right to take decisions which may cause conflicts and division within the churches of the archdiocese, therefore we hope that you will consider the letter of the secretariat of the synod as a official document which is issued by the secretariat of the synod and approved by us.


With extra gratefulness and respect,



Ignatius Zakka Iwas

Patriarch of Antioch and all the Orient.
