to the all Aramean/Syriac institutions around the globe
a message to all our organizations, institutions and associations that
carry the Aramean/Syriac name around globe. We request from you from
now on not to invite our clerics i.e bishops, chor-episcopos, priest etc
to our organizations ,institutions and associations; unless they
literally confess ”that the Syriac people are the Aramean people,”, We
don't accept from them to say ”that the Syriac people were (past
sentence) Arameans, but today we are Syriacs (present sentence)”. Invite
them only if they literally admit and confess that ”the Syriac people
are Arameans even in the modern era as well”.
Why do we say this?
We say this because there are clerics (bishops, priest etc) today that
are traitors to their nation and to the Aramean name.
And because of this there have been a weakness inside the church and
that’s why the church members have decreased these past decades. The
people are fed up with this.
In this letter we request our Aramean/Syriac organization, institutions,
associations etc, to be aware of the wolves in sheep clothing;
They take the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ in their clerical hands and
say to the people ”this is our flag”. This means that they are
intentionally hiding behind the cross of Our Lord for the purpose of
”forged Assyrian identity”
that they believe in.
This is why we tell you that ”the tree that doesn’t bare any fruit shall
be cut of from its roots and be thrown into the fire. Observe that this
analogy refers to those clerics who deny their true national and
honorable identity of our forefathers.
When we say that we are and Aramean nation we take it from the
literature of our own forefathers before us:
During the this last century the patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox Church
of Antioch says in his book the following:
”The Syriac language is the Aramaic language itself, and
the Arameans are the Syrians themselves. Whoever has
made a distinction between them has erred.”
(The Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch at a glance, p. 25)
We request from our patriarch H.H Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas to be aware
of the traitors (the wolves in sheep clothing) amongst our clerics that
work against our true Aramean nation and its true and honorable national
