Assyrians For Justice (AFJ) was founded by Mr. Sam Darmo. Being an Assyrian activist for many years, he decided to start his own television program when it was time to raise global awareness. The AFJ name appeared after Saddam Hussein was found hiding in a small bunker in Tikrit, Iraq.
One of AFJ’s first tasks was compiling
incriminating evidence of Saddam Hussein’s
torture and persecution of the Iraqi
Assyrian minority. AFJ tried
tirelessly, through the offices of the
Our previous generation was neglected in
their pursuit for the truth. The
Assyrian History has been continuously
revised and re-written by non-Assyrians,
especially by certain foreign powers that
have been adversaries and catalysts to the
Assyrian plight. Assyrians For Justice
has been sparked to provide the truth and
realities about our history and more
importantly our struggle, in particular to
the periods in the 19th and 20th centuries.
It is the right of every Assyrian, whether
born in the Diaspora or in our ancestral
lands, to know the aim of any Assyrian
organization including both religious and
political entities. Our Assyrian
identity has been ransacked, abused, and
manipulated far too long by foreign powers
for it to be dealt the same fatal blows by
fellow brothers and sisters within our
Nation. Is our sacred and priceless
identity being used for the salvation of our
brothers and sisters in the
The truth must come out and that is what Assyrians For Justice is here to amplify. Our team exposes the truth using a variety of venues and visual aids. Our authentic and official documentation includes, but is not limited to video, audio, images, and written correspondences. Our mission is not to judge anyone, but to, simply and honorably, show proof of those infringing on our identity and our sustainable future in order to raise awareness. To discern those who are working honestly and with great loyalty for this “Umta” from those who are hiding underneath friendly banners, but secretly working against it.
Our mission is not only to expose and amplify the truth on television, but we are also in the process of establishing an Assyrian Judicial System. The officials will be prominent and established Assyrians from all over the world. They will overlook and oversee Assyrian organizations and peacefully investigate those who are using our identity for personal and deceitful gains.
This judicial system, unlike those established in secular states, will not sentence people, but it will conduct a thorough investigation on all Assyrian organizations and political parties. Once an investigation is completed, they will author and compile a report of their documented findings that will be publicized to the Assyrian people. This report will state the motives of particular organizations and/or political parties all based on truth, facts, and authentic documentation.
Just like any other nation in seeking of
enlightenment and a sustainable future;
Assyrians are in need of the truth and the
pursuit of justice. This is why
Assyrians For Justice will transcend from a
television program to a globally reputable
organization. We hope that the new
generation carries and protects this torch
in order to protect the Assyrians from
future injustice and defamation that was
unfortunately, but never forgotten,
inflicted upon our ancestors.
