Dear Mr. President Obama,

We urgently appeal to You on behalf of the Aramean (Syriac) people, who are indigenous to Syria, Iraq, Southeast Turkey and Lebanon, and more than 100,000 of whom have found refuge in Sweden (see the appendix below). We request You to reconsider Your current position on Syria.

Your Excellency, Dear Mr. Davutoğlu,

We wish to draw your attention once again to the uncertain fate of the Greek and Syriac Orthodox Bishops of Aleppo, Msgr. Boulos Yazigi and Msgr. Yuhanon Ibrahim. Today it has been 106 days since they were abducted. All signs of life and their whereabouts are still lacking substantiation. Due to certain news reports, we request Your Excellency to clarify the position of the Turkish Government.

REQUEST FOR AN EU POLICY & SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR FOR VULNERABLE MINORITIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST

To the Distinguished Foreign Ministers of the EU

Your Excellencies,


Christians throughout the Middle East are at a critical impasse. What we are seeing in Egypt has also been reflected in other states in the region. The Aramean (Syriac) Christians of Syria, Turkey and Iraq are theologically closely linked to the Copts and have endured the same fate for centuries.

Re: Appreciation for not sending weapons to Syria and the plight of the native Christians

Your Excellency, Dear Mr Cameron,

We wish to express our deep gratitude towards Her Majesty’s Government for not sending weapons into Syria, but hope that the budget will now be reserved instead for the direly needed humanitarian aid. As we have learned since the outbreak of the war in the country, the move to flood the country with more weapons would only have led to an increase in violence and bloodshed of innocent civilians.
