Since ISIS defeat, and by the time the displaced Iraqi Christians started to return to the towns and villages in the Nineveh Plains, they were forced to flee again as Iraqi and Kurdish forces clash. It’s a shame that after our people started rebuilding their homes with the hope to start their life in peace after ISIS horror are killed and displaced again by their own government! Our people have lost faith in both the Kurdistan and the Iraqi governments. They see no future in their homeland and they are fleeing to neighboring countries looking for a safe refuge for their families.
Iraq is the land of the original Christians: the Chaldeans, Assyrians, and Syriacs. Iraqi Christians were the original architects of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization.
Today, the Christian population of Iraq is down to about 200,000, a stunning 80 percent decline from the 1.5 million in 2003. Christianity is on the verge of being driven eliminated from its ancestral home.
The Chaldean League of California joined by the local Chaldean associations and supported by the Chaldean Diocese of St. Peter, are calling for an end to the Christian genocide in Iraq. We appeal to the United States administration to protect the Iraqi Christians in their original land. Vice president Pence made a commitment few weeks ago to protect and help the Christians and other Iraqi minorities. We ask you, please take immediate measures to save Iraqi Christians. There isn’t much left, before Christianity is vanished from Iraq.
We ask to Keep Iraqi Christians away from Arab and Kurds conflicts
We ask to keep Nineveh Plain Villages United and Not Divided
We Ask to Amend the Iraqi Constitution to Achieve Equality for All Iraqis. Iraq Shall Be for All Iraqis
