Roum and Aramean communities Rally in the Holy Land

This past Sunday, members of the Greek Orthodox and Aramean communities staged a peaceful protest in Haifa, in order to express their outrage at the continued persecution of their brethren throughout the Middle East. Participates gathered with signs and flags, and called for a peaceful resolution to the war in Gaza, as well as for an end to the on-going Genocide of Christians in Syria and Iraq.

Demonstrators expressed their dissatisfaction with the West for remaining silent while Christians are being raped and murdered in Iraq and Syria. Calling on the International Community to stand up, and protect the indigenous ethno-religious minorities of the Middle East. They also asked western countries to defend the indigenous Assyrian community of Mosul, who have recently been forced to flee their homes, in hopes of escaping the wrath of ISIS.

The protest was held, in solidarity, with the worldwide call of action by the Assyrian Diaspora. We Demand Action is a Global initiative to support the protection of the Assyrians (including Syriacs/Chaldeans) and other minorities in Iraq and Syria.
