Plaque statement

SHLAMA: Aramaic word for PEACE

Presented to the City of Los Altos and the People of the United States of America by the Assyrian Arts Institute and the Nora Betyousef Foundation.

The Assyrian American community wishes to recognize the service to the nation of Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo, United States House of Representatives.
And especially her assistance to the Assyrian people in their recent trials as a result of the war against Iraq.  We are grateful to and proud of this outstanding member of the Assyrian American community.

“I, Hammurabi, the pious, was called forth by name for the welfare of the people
To cause justice to appear in the world so that the strong should not oppress the weak
And to give light to the land to further the well-being of mankind.”


CODE OF HAMMURABI, 1754 B.C.
