- La situazione sta peggiorando.
Gridate con noi che i diritti umani sono calpestati da persone che parlano in nome di Dio ma che non sanno nulla di Lui che è Amore, mentre loro agiscono spinti dal rancore e dall’odio.
Gridate: Oh! Signore, abbi misericordia dell’Uomo.

Louis Raphael Sako, the patriarch of Chaldeans in Iraq and around the world, has sent a letter to the Iraqi parliament and electoral commission, asking that they abide by the constitution and identify Syriac applications according to their ethnicity.
Yunadim Yusuf Kana, general secretary of the Assyrian Democratic Movement, told Rudaw that, “We are grateful for Sako’s efforts, but we are not men of media and Facebook and will try to solve the issue through legal means.”
He added that, “This is a political goal of some chauvinists that want to isolate us from the political and national process.”
Kana, who is also an MP in the Iraqi parliament, said that the Iraqi constitution recognizes the different languages of the population. But he said there were efforts to rescind Article 125, which outlines the rights of the Chaldean, Assyrian and Syriac citizens.
The process of issuing new national identity cards has started across Iraq.
