Stellungnahme des Zentralverband der assyrischen Vereinigungen in Deutschland und europäische Sektionen zu den jüngsten Attentaten im Irak

Am Freitag, den 12.11.2010, finden in ganz Deutschland Mahnwachen, anlässlich des Bombenattentats auf die christlichen Assyrer (auch Chaldäer und Syrer genannt) in der Sayidat al-Najat- Kirche in Bagdad / Irak, statt.

Bei diesem gezielten Angriff am 31.10.2010 brachten islamische Terroristen mehr als 120 christliche Geiseln in ihre Gewalt. Bei dem Versuch, die Geiseln zu befreien, zündeten die Terroristen Sprengstoffgürtel. Hierbei wurden über 52 Menschen getötet und über 70 lebensgefährlich verletzt.

Die der islamischen Al Kaida Organisation angehörenden Terroristen haben weitere Attentate auf die christlichen Assyrer im Irak angekündigt.

Seit dem Kriegsausbruch im Jahre 2003 wurden Anschläge auf über 60 christliche Kirchen verübt. Von den 1,5 Millionen Assyrern musste über die Hälfte ihre irakische Heimat verlassen. Unzählige Assyrer wurden bereits ermordet, enteignet und heimatlos gemacht.

Der Vorsitzende des Zentralverbands der Assyrer, Shlemon Yonan spricht bei den Angriffen auf die christlichen Assyrer von einem Völkermord, die das Ziel haben, den Irak christenfrei zu machen.
Der Ausrottung der Christen muss ein Ende gesetzt werden! Daher lasst uns alle gemeinsam unsere Stimme gegen die Ausrottung der Christen im Irak erheben!

Men hold up pictures of Iraqi Christian priests killed in an attack in Baghdad, during a demonstration in support of Iraq's Christian minority in Brussels, Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010. The priests were killed Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010 when gunmen stormed a church during mass and took the entire congregation hostage. The attack, claimed by an al-Qaida-linked organization, was the deadliest recorded against Iraq's Christians since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion unleashed a wave of violence against them.

Thousands in Brussels Protest Attacks Against Iraqi Christians
Associated Press. Published November 13, 2010.

BRUSSELS -- Several thousand people from across Europe gathered in Brussels Saturday to protest a recent escalation of violence against Christians in Iraq.

"We want our voice to be heard by the European community," said Suleyman Gultekin of the European Syriac Union, which organized the march. "We are attacked systematically" in Iraq.
Syriac Christians have lived in the Middle East for centuries and now make up a small minority in countries like Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Turkey.

The demonstration follows a string of violent attacks against the Christian community in Iraq, which has already dwindled from 1.5 million to about 400,000 over the past decade.

Gunmen stormed a Sunday Mass service in Baghdad on Oct. 31, killing 68 people -- including two priests -- and injuring many others. On Wednesday, five people were killed and 20 wounded in more than a dozen bombings and mortar attacks targeting Christian families in the Iraqi capital.

"Since the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime, the Iraqi government was not able to protect us," Gultekin told The Associated Press. "So, our conclusion is that we need an autonomy in the north of Iraq to protect our people and to be in a safe and secure place."

Police estimated that about 4,000 people marched in the demonstration in pouring rain, although organizers said there were many more.

They carried pictures of the two priests killed in the attack on the church and chanted slogans condemning violence against Christians in French, English and Arabic.

Kamil Aho, a 30-year old Syrian, traveled to Brussels by bus from Paderborn, in northwestern Germany. "We are shouting so that everyone in the world can hear" what has been happening, he said.

The march, led by a group of Syriac priests, culminated in a rally in front of the headquarters of the European Commission, the European Union's executive.

"Right now everybody is afraid," said Father Noel Al Castoma, a Syriac priest who fled Iraq in 2004 and now lives in the Netherlands.
