Monastery in Turkey suffers attacks
by Catholic World News (CWN). August 13, 2013.

“We gave the police the footage from the surveillance camera from the previous attack, and now it's gone and no one was punished.”

Members of the staff of a Syrian Orthodox monastery were attacked on August 11 in Midyat, a city of 60,000 in southeastern Turkey, the Assyrian International News Agency (AINA) reported.

When a group of young Kurdish Muslims came to the monastery as visiting hours were ending, they demanded entrance and said, “We are PKK and we own this land; obey us, or you will be sorry,” according to a witness. After a fight ensued, police used pepper spray on the monastery staff, AINA reported.

“The monastery was attacked two months before this incident by young Kurds from the town of Batman,” a witness told the agency. “We gave the police the footage from the surveillance camera from the previous attack, and now it's gone and no one was punished.”

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
