The Oriental Patriarchs met in Erbil in northern Iraq on August 19, 2014. Their message highlights some fundamental aspects of the actual emergency of the Christians of the Nineveh Plain and of Mosul city. In light of their message, Salvaimonasteri (Savethemonasteries) hereby launches the present international appeal in order to have the following demands quickly developed and implemented:

1) the commitment of all the Iraqis, of the Iraqi government, of the Regional Kurdish government, and of the international community for the immediate liberation of the towns, the villages, and the ancient religious sites of the Nineveh Plain (among which are: Baghdeda-Qarakosh, Bartella, Karamless, Bashiqah, Talkief, Batnaya, the sites of the monasteries of Mar Matta and Mar Benham). The commitment to the re-establishment of civil and religious rights of the Christian minority in Mosul city. The commitment to allow the refugees to return to their towns and villages with guarantees for their safety and sustainable conditions, along with a political solution to safeguard the private property of the Nineveh and Mosul refugees.

2) the formation of a province for the Christians in Iraq. According to the Patriarchs’ message “in constitutional terms, it is possible to establish a province for the Iraqi Christians. Now this has become acceptable”. Related to this point, Baghdeda-Qaraqosh, the only town in Nineveh and all Iraq with a major Christian population, has all the prerogatives to be established as the capital of the Province for Christians.

3) the recognition of Nineveh cultural sites as World Heritage sites from Unesco and other international organizations in order to safeguard and promote the monuments and sites hat are still standing, and to restore those damaged. (list of Christian, Assyrian, Muslim sites)

4) an impartial distribution of aid among the different groups of Catholic, Orthodox and other minorities effected by the state of emergency in Kurdistan, in other Iraqi regions, and during their return home; the impartial issuing of visas to third countries.

5) respect for the international and humanitarian rights, including the freedom to return home, of the refugees displaced in Iraq or for those who found shelter abroad.

محافظة نينوى مُحرّرةنداء دولي

  عقد بطاركة الكنائس الشرقية اجتماعًا في مدينة اربيل الواقعة في اقليم كردستان العراق في 19/8/2014، وجهوا من خلاله رسالة أوضحوا فيها تداعيات الحالة الطارئة التي يمر فيها مسيحيي سهل نينوى ومدينة الموصل. وقد اهتم موقعانقاذ الاديرة” ( Salvaimonasteri ) بموضوع الاجتماع فساهم في إطلاق نداء دولي لكيما يتم تقييم واعتبار المطالب التالية كحالة مُلِحّة:

1- انشاء مقاطعة خاصة بمسيحيي العراق. وبحسب نداء البطاركة،ان تحديد مقاطعة لمسيحيي العراق هو امر ممكن من الناحية الدستورية، وان هذا الأمر قد اصبح ممكنا. وفي هذا الصدد، فإن بغديداقره قوش، المدينة الكبرى الأولى ذات الأغلبية المسيحية ضمن محافظة نينوى وضمن العراق، هي مؤهلة بشكل جيد لتكون عاصمة الإقليم المسيحي

2- بذل الجهود من قِبل العراقيين والحكومة العراقية وحكومة اقليم كوردستان والمجموعة الدولية للتحرير الفوري لمدن وقرى وللمواقع الدينية الأثرية في سهل نينوى (بينها بغديداقره قوش، برطلة، كرمليس، بعشيقة، تلكيف، باطنايا، مناطق دير مار متى ودير مار بهنام)، والجهود في إعادة الحقوق المدنية والدينية للأقلية المسيحية في الموصل. والجهود من أجل جعل إعادة توطين المُهجّرين إلى مُدنهم وقُراهم مع ضمانات لسلامتهم ضمن حماية دولية وفي ظروف لائقة. إقرار سياسات مُلحة لإنقاذ المُمتلكات الخاصة بلاجئي الموصل ومحافظة نينوى.

3- الاعتراف بالإرث الثقافي في محافظة نينوى من قِبل اليونسكو ومن قِبل المؤسسات الدوليةكإرث للإنسانية”  للمحافظة على وتطوير المواقع الناجية من التخريب، وإصلاح ما قد تضرّر منها. (مُلحق: مواقع آشورية، مسيحية، إسلامية).

4- توزيع نزيه وعادل للمساعدات على مختلف الاقليات: الكاثوليكية والارثوذكسية والأقليات الغير المسيحية، المتضررين من جراء الوضع الحالي والمتواجدين في مختلف مناطق العراق وفي كردستان، خاصة في مرحلة عودتهم إلى ديارهم. تخصيص عادل بمنح تأشيرات السفر إلى الدول التي تستقبل المُهجَّرين.

5- احترام المبادئ الدولية ومبادئ حقوق الانسان للمهجّرين مع اعطائهم حرية القرار بالعودة سواءً للمهجرين داخل الاراضي العراقية او لأولئك اللذين تشتتوا في الخارج.

NINIVE LIBERA – APPELLO INTERNAZIONALE

Il messaggio dei Patriarchi delle Chiese Orientali, riuniti a Erbil nella regione del Kurdistan in nord Iraq il 19/08/2014, riporta alcuni aspetti fondamentali della grave emergenza dei Cristiani della piana di Ninive e di Mosul. Raccogliendo tale messaggio, Salvaimonasteri lancia un appello internazionale perchè vengano sviluppate e definite urgentemente le seguenti istanze:

1) l’impegno degli iracheni, del Governo iracheno, del Governo regionale curdo, della comunità internazionale per la liberazione immediata delle città, dei villaggi, degli antichi siti religiosi della Piana di Ninive, (fra cui Baghdeda-Qarakosh, Bartella, Karamless, Bashiqah, Talkief, Batnaya, le zone di Mar Matta e di Mar Benham). L’impegno per il ripristino dei diritti civili e religiosi della minoranza cristiana nella città di Mosul. L’impegno per il rientro dei profughi nelle loro città e villaggi con garanzie per la sicurezza e condizioni sostenibili. Attuazione di politiche immediate per la salvaguardia del diritto di proprietà dei profughi di Ninive e di Mosul.

2) la formazione di una provincia per i Cristiani in Iraq. Secondo il messaggio dei Patriarchi, “parlando in termini costituzionali, stabilire una provincia per i Cristiani in Iraq è possibile. Questo è diventato accettabile”. A questo riguardo, Baghdeda-Qaraqosh, l’unica città a maggioranza cristiana a Ninive e in tutto l’Iraq, ha tutte le prerogative per essere stabilita come capoluogo della Provincia per i Cristiani.

3) il riconoscimento del patrimonio culturale di Ninive da parte dell’Unesco e delle Istituzioni internazionali come Patrimonio dell’Umanità per salvaguardare e promuovere i monumenti e i siti superstiti, per ripristinare quanto già danneggiato. (lista siti Cristiani, Assiri, Musulmani)

4) l’equa distribuzione di sostegni e di aiuti fra i diversi gruppi della minoranza cattolica, della minoranza ortodossa, delle altre minoranze, nell’ emergenza in corso nella regione curda e in altre regioni irachene, nella fase di rientro. Equa assegnazione di visti per paesi terzi.

5) il rispetto dei principi del diritto internazionale e dei diritti umanitari insieme con la libertà di tornare nella residenza originaria sia per i rifugiati al’interno del paese sia per coloro che hanno trovato accoglienza in paesi terzi.

COMMENTS

ELISABETTA VALGIUSTI: I deeply love Nineveh and those Christians who are original inhabitants of this land. It is a barbaric crime and an international shame if Nineveh remains without Christians, if the antique Nineveh churches are destroyed, if the life and the traditions of the great Nineveh Christian people are annihilated. Free Nineveh!

PAOLO LIVERANI: Killing in the name of God is the worst blasphemy.

FiIORENZO DEGASPERI: Non si può uccidere una storia millenaria di convivenza. (A millennial history of co-existence cannot be wiped out).

MARCO ROSSI: Salviamo il più possibile le testimonianze del dialogo religioso e culturale tra i popoli: solo questo potrà favorire la pace.( Let’s save as much as possible the witnesses of the religious and cultural dialogue among the peoples: this is the only way to foster the peace).

GABRIELLA COTTA: The wealth of Middle East reposes on the cohabitation of different religions, which reflects the courses of humanity. All this must be preserved by nihilism and brutality of fundamentalists movements.

GUGLIELMO GIORDANO: La costituzione di una provincia cristiana va contro i principi di rispetto del credo altrui e dell’integrazione. Spero si tratti di una misura necessaria ma contingente, da superare dopo l’esito positivo della crisi attuale. (The establishment of a Christian province contravenes the principles of the respect for other people’s belief and for the integration. I hope that it is a necessary measure but contingent, to go over after the positive outcome of the present crisis.)

PIELUIGI GIACOMELLO: Mi associo all’appello nella speranza che vengano garantiti libertà di culto, diritti umani e coesistenza pacifica nella culla della civiltà. (I subscribe the appeal with the hope that freedom of worship, human rights and pacific co-existence will be guaranteed in the cradle of the civilization.)

ANTONIO RIGO: Support the Christians in the Middle East!

ADRIANO CIANI: Very important and right initiative. It’s a common heritage for all on the world.

DANIELA TUSCANO: Free Nineveh, free Christian people!

PAOLO MARIA GROSSHOLZ: Freedom for all everywhere for ever!

CLAUDIA GIANPIETRO: War is over…if we want it! Free Nineveh

ANTONIO BARTOCCI: Non possiamo assistere oltre all’indifferenza del cosiddetto “mondo civile” di fronte alle barbariche e disumane vessazioni imposte dall’ Is alle minoranze cristiane.

BEGNINI CECILIA: I am a Catholic and have seven children. God is love.

MAURIZIO AGRO’: Save Nineveh!

EVA ARRICIATI: Chiedo agli stati occidentali di intervenire affinchè sia possibile la libertà religiosa e sia dato sostengno,materiale e spirituale, alle popolazioni del medio oriente oggetto di discriminazione religiosa.

 ANDREA DONEDA: Perché possano tornare a casa in pace

 MICAELA SPERANZA: In questo momento, posso pregare e sottoscrivere. Questo faccio, grazie per la possibilità.

FLAVIA DE VITT: Peace and liberty for the Christians!

DANIELA FERRARI: Killing in the name of God is the worst blasphemy.

ERICA C D HUNTER: The situation of the Christians is dire. They were forced out of their homes in Mosul. They need to return, with guarantees of safety, to their traditional homes. Many of the ISIS fighters are not from Iraq, but occupy their homes.

SEBASTIAN PAUL BROCK: Thank you for your valuable work!

PATRIZIA MOLINARI: It’s necessary to stop this tragedy.

EVANGELIA HADJITRYPHONOS: I find all that deeply unhuman.

TIZIANA MAYER: Let’s save eastern christians and christanity!

ANTONIO RANZOLIN: Christianity is beauty. Beauty of all mankind. Il cristianesimo è bellezza. Bellezza di tutta l’umanità.

Defend Syria - Save Aleppo

INTERNATIONAL APPEAL TO:

THE GOVERNMENT OF THE SYRIAN ARAB REPUBLIC, TO ALL PARTIES IN THE CONFLICT THE GOVERNMENT OF WESTERN AND EASTERN COUNTRIES, THE EUROPEAN UNION, UNITED NATIONS, UNESCO, INSTITUTIONS AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF SYRIA.

In uniting with the great suffering of the Syrian people and trusting in the urgent pacification of Syria, we ask for the immediate implementation of protection for the cultural heritage of the country, which is undergoing extensive damage.
In particular, we appeal for the protection of the Citadel, the old town and all the monuments and buildings belonging to all the different religions in the city of Aleppo.

The uniqueness of the cultural history of Aleppo is a priceless cultural heritage and is beautifully demonstrated by a long tradition of peaceful coexistence between different religious groups.

The loss of this unique unity and capacity for coexistence would represent a resounding defeat for the civilization of the twenty-first century, which we do not want and we oppose.
In particular, we call for the reintroduction of the use of those very religious sites (mosques, churches, synagogues, monasteries, shrines), which risk complete destruction, as they are being occupied and used for military purposes by the various parties in the conflict. In addition, we ask that religious buildings, museums, archaeological sites, ancient houses, are protected from looting and vandalism, and international governments commit themselves to pursuing and punishing those who are trafficking the stolen cultural property of the Syrian people.
The ancient historical centers of Aleppo and Damascus, Bosra, Palmyra, Hisn al Akrād and Qal’at Salah El-Din, and a group of ancient villages of northern Syria, are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Defending the Syrian cultural heritage means defending the civilization of the twenty-first century.

للدفاع عن سوريا, لانقاذ حلب

نداء:

الى قيادة الجمهورية العربية السورية

الى جميع اطراف الصراع القائم

الى حكومات الدول الغربية والعربية

الى الاتحاد الاوربي

الى الامم المتحدة

الى الاونيسكو

الى المؤسسات والمنظمات العالمية

معا لانقاذ التراث الحضاري في سوريا

متحدين مع الالم العميق للشعب السوري وواثقين بالمصالحة الملحة في سوريا, نطالب فورا استعادة حماية التراث الثقافي للبلد الذي يعاني اضراراً جسيمة واسعة النطاق. على وجه الخصوص, نناشد بضمان حماية القلعة, ووسط المدينة القديم وجميع المعالم الاثرية والمباني التابعة لجميع الطوائف الدينية المختلفة في مدينة حلب.

الطابع الفريد للتاريخ الثقافي لمدينة حلب يتمثل في تراثها الثقافي الذي لا يقدر بثمن, ويتجلى بشكل رائع في التقليد الراسخ للتعايش السلمي بين جميع الجماعات الدينية المختلفة. ان فقدان هذا الطابع الفريد والقدرة على التعايش قد يؤدي الى انهيار حضارة القرن الواحد والعشرين الذي لا نريد ان نراه والذي عليه نعارض.

على وجه الخصوص, فاننا ندعو الى استعادة استخدام تلك المواقع الدينية الخاصة (المساجد, الكنائس, المعابد, الاديرة, و الاماكن المقدسة), التي هي في خطر التدمير الشامل لكونها محتلة ومستخدمة لاهداف عسكرية من قبل مختلف الاطراف.

بالإضافة إلى ذلك، فإننا نطالب أن تتم حماية المباني الدينية والمتاحف والمواقع الاثرية والبيوت القديمة, من النهب والتخريب, وأن تلتزم الحكومات الدولية بملاحقة التهريب غير الشرعي للممتلكات الثقافية السورية المسروقة. ان المراكز التاريخية القديمة في حلب ودمشق, وبصرى وتدمر وحصن الاكراد وقلعة صلاح الدين ومجموعة من القرى القديمة في شمال سوريا, جميعها معترف عليها من اليونيسكو بانها تراث عالمي. الدفاع عن التراث الثقافي السوري للدفاع عن حضارة القرن الحادي والعشرين.

APPELLO

AL GOVERNO DELLA REPUBBLICA ARABA SIRIANA, A TUTTE LE PARTI IN CONFLITTO, AI GOVERNI DEI PAESI OCCIDENTALI E ORIENTALI, ALL’ UNIONE EUROPEA, ALLE NAZIONI UNITE, ALL’UNESCO, ALLE ISTITUZIONI ED ORGANIZZAZIONI INTERNAZIONALI, PER LA SALVAGUARDIA DEL PATRIMONIO CULTURALE DELLA SIRIA.

Unendoci alla grande sofferenza del popolo siriano e confidando nell’urgente pacificazione della Siria, chiediamo che sia immediatamente ristabilita la tutela del patrimonio culturale del paese che sta subendo danni ingentissimi.

In special modo, ci appelliamo perché sia garantita la salvaguardia della Cittadella, del centro storico e di tutti i monumenti ed edifici appartenenti a tutte le diverse confessioni religiose nella città di Aleppo.

L’unicità storico-culturale di Aleppo è rappresentata dal suo inestimabile patrimonio culturale ed è magnificamente testimoniata da una consolidata tradizione di pacifica convivenza fra gruppi di diversa appartenenza religiosa.

La perdita di tale unicità e di tale capacità di convivenza significherebbe una sconfitta della civiltà del XXI secolo a cui non vogliamo assistere e a cui ci opponiamo.

In particolare, chiediamo che venga ripristinato l’utilizzo proprio di quei siti religiosi (moschee, chiese, sinagoghe, monasteri, santuari), che rischiano la completa distruzione essendo occupati e utilizzati per fini militari dalle diverse parti. Inoltre, chiediamo che edifici religiosi, musei, scavi archeologici, antiche case, vengano protetti da saccheggi e vandalismi, e che i governi internazionali si impegnino a perseguire duramente il traffico di beni culturali siriani trafugati. Gli antichi centri storici di Aleppo e di Damasco, Bosra, Palmira, Hisn al Akrad e Qal’at Salah El-Din, e un gruppo di antichi villaggi della Siria settentrionale, sono riconosciuti Patrimonio dell’Umanità dall’Unesco. Difendere il patrimonio culturale della Siria per difendere la civiltà del XXI secolo.

LIST OF COMMENTS BY SUBSCRIBERS TO DEFEND SYRIA, SAVE ALEPPO APPEAL

Archbishop Lawrence Saldanha: May peace prevail !

Fr. Joseph Tobji: Convert your hearts and follow the path of peace.

Amir Harrak: Please spare people and their millennia old heritage and culture!

Sebastian Paul Brock: The rich heritage of Syria is a precious part of our common heritage.

Giorgio Arcadin: Today the worst danger is indifference, the danger to get used to the violences perpretated against harmful people and against their cultural heritage that is daily damaged. Indifference is the worst kind of complicity. Let’s raise our voice and make our indignation be heard.

Columba Stewart OSB: We reaffirm our commitment to preserving the manuscript patrimony of the Christian communities of the Near East.

Margherita Levi: Let’s stop this cultural massacre!

Gennaro Di Martino, Novara, Italia: Saving the culture for democracy!

Sr. Marie-Cecile Osborne RJM: The ancient city of Aleppo is a treasure, please save it from further destruction.

Luciana Stella: Let’s save Syria!

Claudia Danzi: Save your soul, your children, your future, stop fighting!

Macrios Jabbour: It’s a sin !

Daniela Serpilli: Save the human lives and stop the destruction!

Luisa Bastoni: Save Aleppo and Palmyra !

Ilaria Riccitelli: Let’s save them !!!

Boghos Levon Zekiyan: As very often, this time also we awaked up too late! Under the fallacious appearance of certain “democratic” slogans by people who don’t even know what democracy is (cf. what happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia etc.), our infallible West gave all its enormous support to destabilize a country, Syria in this case, under the supreme, farseeing leadership of the greatest general of the 20th-21st centuries (Mrs. Clinton), a country which even if not democratic as to free thinking, was even more democrat than our Western system as far as the identity and autonomy of all registered ethnic, religious, and confessional communities (more than fifteen) were at issue. Our recent history is full of similar “post-prophecies”, a very emblematic case having been in the 60ies of the 20th century the creation of todays Nigeria with the open Western complicity in the genocide of the Biafra people (two million of victims nearly!). In any case, “better late than never”!

Elisabetta Galvani: Let’s defend the civilization !

Dina Di Stefano: If mankind does not understand why to defend these witnesses of her culture and history it means she is not worth to survive.

Giovanni Gentili: Let’s save the cultural heritage of Syria as a contribute for peace.

Roberto Giambrone: For the respect of cultural differences.

Federica Clarizia: So many people cannot die and their cultural heritage cannot be destroyed in such a silence and indifference!

Mariagrazia Giacomini, Trieste, Italia: In my city, Trieste, the different religious and ethnical cultures have collaborated in the harmony and mutual respect almost always. I wish that the cultural and historical richness will not be destroyed because of human greed and blindness.

Sr. M. Carmen Herrer Herrer: It is a duty of our civilized world to defend Syria and save Aleppo.

Muhyi Alkhateeb: Save Aleppo one of the most ancient cities on the earth.

Teresita Boriani: Respect people, history, art !

Biagio Cacciola: God save Syria.

Sryoum Nazaarour: Save the beautiful city of Aleppo working with dialogue not with weapons.

Nikola Segedi: For all my Aleppine friends, and all the places where we were hanging out together.

Maryvonne Duclaux: Syria’s cultural and historical heritage is a great example of peaceful coexistence.

Sharon Bossler, OP: I strongly urge that all of Syria and especially Aleppo cultural and religious buildings be protected for the people of Syria.

Ayad Al Sultan: We must do our best to save history of Halab (Aleppo).

Mujbil Al-Marsumi: Cultural icons are above any type of dispute.

Evangelia Hadjitryphonos: I love this country. Its monuments and sites are invaluable. They are the soul of the population and also ours.

Marco Rossi: Only the search of truth and of peace can guarantee a truly human coexistence and the respect of the culture and of the traditions.

Gabriella Cotta: First, save Syrian people, and also their history that is too important to be destroyed.

Andrew Louth FBA: It would be the greatest tragedy if these monasteries, going back to the early centuries of Christianity were to be destroyed or damaged

Elizabeth Williams: These are important monuments of Syrian and world heritage.

Richard Pinion: Defend Syria-Save Aleppo!

Sr. Mariam Norick: Blessings on your efforts to bring some peace to that area.

Andrea Bulgarini: DEFEND SYRIA-SAVE ALEPPO !

Petition for Iraq

PETITION ADDRESSED TO THE GENERAL SECRETARY OF UNITED NATIONS FOR THE RIGHT TO STUDY OF THE IRAQI CHRISTIAN STUDENTS OF MOSUL AND FOR THE SAFEGUARD OF THE RIGHTS OF THE IRAQI CHRISTIANS AND OF THEIR CULTURAL HERITAGE

8 May 2010 Rome

His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon,

Italian Association, Salvaimonasteri (Save the Monasteries) is presenting this petition in consequence of a new deadly attack that the students of the Christian village of Karakosh, in the Nineveh plain, underwent while transferring by buses to the University of Mosul on May 2, 2010. Two bombs exploded at their passage killing one person and injuring 171. Many of the young students were left missing legs, arms, parts of faces, most of whom are undergoing major plastic surgery. Two young women are still in danger of death in intensive care.

As it is becoming known, the Iraqi Christians are suffering discrimination, violations of human rights, and persecution on religious, ethnic, cultural grounds and as a consequence of the country’s recent conflicts and political situation. Since the year 2004 the Iraqi Christian population has been halved with the resultant impoverishment of their social condition and of their civil and human rights.

Salvaimonasteri Association has been active in Iraq since 2005 through communication projects to alert the international community of the annihilating conditions facing the Christian population, the disappearance of these important communities with their unique cultural heritage, and the urgent situation of the refugees in the neighbouring countries. Notwithstanding the commitment of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other international institutions, the situation of the Iraqi Christians is getting worse. Especially in the city of Mosul and in the villages of the Niniveh plain the daily murder of ordinary Christian people continues as well as the attack and the destruction of churches and convents of religious sisters. These wild acts usually remain unpunished. The majority of Christians in this area have lost their jobs and property and have been done away with as a result of harassment, blackmail, and persecution. The young Christians will have no future in their country and their precious 2000 year-old cultural heritage is condemned to vanish.

We require the intervention of the United Nations in order to guarantee the right to study of the Christian students of the Governatorate of Mosul in order to safeguard the Christian heritage in the plain of Niniveh and in all Iraq, and in order to re-establish the respect of the human and civil rights of the Iraqi Christians in their fatherland.

We require the United Nations to act with the Iraqi and the international governments and institutions in defense of the existence, and for the respect of the life and history, of the Iraqi Christians.
