Aramean Democratic Organization

ArDO can see the troubles and problems coming to Lebanon if there will continue to exist an armed party in Lebanon controling most of the countries authorities. We in ArDO call on the Lebanese government and people to act before it is too late. 
We dont want to see any war soon but the way things are going in the country will lead to a war and then we can not undo anything. 
We must act now and if the lebanese government is not able to disarm all lebanese and foreign militias in the country then we need help from the UN to spread its troops over all territories and by force collect the illigal arms.

The Arameans in Ancient Syria

100 modern years of dark time for the Middle Eastern Christians From Turkey to Egypt and Iraq through Lebanon, Palestinian territories and Syria. The Christians were and still are being massacred, persecuted, kidnapped, forcibly converted, evicted, expelled, lived as second and third class citizens in the countries they once where lords over and its indeginous people and built it as the best place to live in at that time. 
Today more than ever the Middle Eastern Christian Arameans needs real sollutions like independence, autonomy or at least federalism. 
Only this way they would be able to have a good life were they can plan and prepare for their children.

ArDO: The Aramaic Democratic Organisation urges the President of the Republic of Lebanon Mr. Michel Sleimen to take actions towards stoping the escalation of violence in the country. 

Der einzige Staat im Nahen Osten, der Christen respektiert



The Syrian army will be forced to enter parts of Lebanon to fight Islamist militants striking it from Lebanese territories. 

The same scenario was seen in the past when Israel was forced to do the same to fight different Palestinian and Arab leftist groups fighting it from Lebanese soil. Back then the Lebanese state was unable to intervene and stop this before it got too late and we all know what happend in Lebanon during that period in the 70s and 80s. 

 We, the Free Lebanese people refuse to see our country entering new wars that are not ours, the time of ¨others wars on our soil¨ is behind us and we will not let it come again. 

We in Aramean Democratic Organisation support and encourage the Lebanese army and the Lebanese presidency to make all efforts to stop this scenario from repeating itself in Lebanon, if that needs a call for help from the UN or Nato we are ready to accept that. 

It is time the Lebanese lives through at least one generation without wars.  

Federalism in Syria is the solution

The EU should proscribe Hezbollah - in its entirety


The Aramean Democratic Organisation, ArDO strongly supports the Aramaic Camp held in the Holy Land buy our Brothers and Sisters in the Aramaic Center. We are very proud of you and wishes you a great time getting to know our language and Culture more and more. We like to invite you at any time you can come to Sweden where we can be able to show you more of our Aramaic civilization in the diaspora.
God Bless you and God Bless our Aramaic history and future.

The last of the Aramaic speakers


The Aramean Democratic Organisation, ArDO supports the Lebanese army against all enemies of a free Lebanon. The army should continue its heroic work against the relatively small islamist organisations to cover the biggest islamist organisation among them, the iranian hezballa. After that it should clean Lebanon from all palestinian militias and jihadist groups. This is the answer to Lebanons problems today and this is what we all wanted when the UN resolution 1559 was made.

A group from The Aramean Democratic Organization headed by its leader Mr. Gabi Gallo had the honor to participate in the Christian mass held in Gotenburg, Sweden for the memory of Lebanon's greatest President and best leader of the Christian Middle Eastern resistance, the never dying brother Bachir Gemayel. ArDO met Nadim Gemayel, the son of Bachir and the representative of the Christian population in the Lebanese Parliament. ArDO and Mr. Nadim met after the mass and exchanged many ideas and shared many goals to reach the good life our brothers and sisters in Lebanon are dreaming of.

30 years since the greatest Middle Eastern Christian leader Bachir Gmayel was assassinated.
3 days of a blessed visit from the head of the largest church on earth, Pope Benedict XVI.
Both are great men that wanted and always want Lebanon to be a free country for Christians so they can play the important role of spreading the peace and democracy ideology across the Middle East.
ArDO remembers Bachir and welcomes the visit of the Pope as a salvation step and a push in the right direction to give the Christians of the Middle East hopes of a free future in our historical lands.

We urgently need a platform of all Syrian opposition groups which is committed to democracy, tolerance and pluralism
