To the Permanent Mission of Greece to the United Nations in New York City
Ambassador H.E. Anastassis Mitsialis

Monday, 11 March 2013

Dear Mr. Ambassador Mitsialis,

We refer to the meeting on 4 March 2013 of the World Council of Arameans (Syriacs) (“WCA”) in New York City with the First Counselor Mr. Venizelos and the Second Secretary Mr. Dimitris Felopoulos. We primarily discussed issues pertaining the Syrian crisis, in particular that of the Aramean (Syriac) Christian refugees from Syria who have arrived in Greece.

THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT SYRIA’S CHRISTIANS REALLY WANT? -- WCA Official Position on Syria (18 February 2013)

The battle for supremacy in Syria continues between the Government and Opposition forces. With no end in sight and so many Christians escaping the terror, it is the plight of Syria’s Christians in the country which has left many contemplating a future Syria without the native Christian Arameans (a.k.a. Syriacs, Chaldeans and Assyrians (Nestorians)). The World Council of Arameans (Syriacs) (“WCA”) is a United Nations NGO which represents and seeks to protect the interests of the Aramean people in Syria. The present paper by the WCA closely reflects the position held by the majority of Syria’s Christians and other vulnerable minorities.

Statement by Metropolitan Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim: Christians in Syria facing a new unexpected tragedy

Below you will find a new Statement from our clergy on the ground in Syria, with commentary from Metropolitan Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim. There is no question that the situation is getting worse by the day. Lack of information and misinformation are key problems in the conflict.

Here you see from our Aramean Syriac Orthodox Bishops that there is fear, danger and death throughout Syria. 

The WCA will continue to fight for justice and supports all our people in Syria (and those who have escaped the war), including our Clergy. God bless and help them all.

Four (4) Christians in Moharde killed

SYRIA, MOHARDE -- Four (4) Christians in Moharde were killed as result of a bomb near Moharde on the street next to a chicken farm. The bomb was hidden on the road from Homs to Moharde. The rebels are responsible for this cruel act and have been attacking Moharde for quite some time – the population in this area and the nearby Al-Suqaylabiyah is all Christian, probably the main reason why these areas are under attack and surrounded increasingly by Jihadists.

OPEN LETTER TO THE ARAMEAN (SYRIAC) PEOPLE: URGENT CALL TO INVEST TOGETHER IN SYRIA QUESTON!

Our dearest fellow countrymen,

We should like to draw your urgent attention to read this letter carefully. It is a wake-up call to all of us. We must realize the situation in the Middle East and decide how we can adequately respond to it.

It is no news to you why, how and with what devastating consequences the majority of our people have already escaped the lands of our ancestors in Southeast Turkey and Iraq in the last decades.
