Expression of condolences of the Aramaeans concerning the passing of Mar Dinkha IV, Catholicos-Patriarch of the Holy Assyrian Church of the East

Heidelberg, 27th March 2014 – We, the Federation of Arameans in Germany, express our sincere condolences to the believers of the Holy Assyrian Church of the East (Chicago). Catholicos-Patriarch Mar Dinkha IV, born 19th September in Derbenduk (Iraq), passed away in the USA yesterday.
The Federation’s chairman, Daniyel Demir, condoles with the believers of the Eastern-Syriac Church:” In this hour of grief, we would like to express our deepest condolences and sympathy for our sisters and brothers of the Eastern-Syriac Church. We share your pain and feel close to you in this dark hour.“
On this occasion, the Federation emphasizes the mutual links, both ethnical and denominational, of our various Syriac denominations in our Aramean community with its history, culture and language. With the passing of Mar Dinkha IV, the Aramean community lost yet another shepherd in these times of Christian exodus in the Middle East.
In this context the Federation points out the interdenominational and culturally shaped ethnical identity of the Aramean community:” The 100,000 Arameans living in Germany are mainly members of the Holy Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch. According to its interdenominational character however, the Federation of Arameans orients itself towards aspects of ethnical identity and therefore supports the process of rapprochement of our denominations and hopes that our church leaders will have the courage to overcome the tragic and historically based division of the Aramaic community.”
“At this point we would like to call upon all our patriarchs of the Syriac Churches to courageously take the necessary steps and continue coming together. We, The Federation of Arameans in Germany, are ready and willing to support this process with all means at hand,” chairman Daniyel Demir continues.
The Federation of the Arameans in Germany campaigns for the rights and interests of the Arameans in Germany and their countries of origin. The Arameans are a Semitic people who indigenously originate in South-East Turkey and several other countries in the Middle East. Approximately 100,000 Arameans are currently living in Germany, about 300,000 in the European Union. The Christian Arameans are mainly members of the various Syriac churches; these include the Syriac Orthodox, the Syriac Catholic, the Syriac Maronite, the Chaldean, the Church of the East and more.

Deutschland steh zu deiner Verantwortung! Petition Unterschreiben!

Der Völkermord an 1,5 Millionen Armeniern, über 500.000 Aramäern und anderen christlichen Minderheiten, die Straflosigkeit der Täter, wird von Historikern als Blaupause für den Holocaust und weitere Völkermorde bezeichnet. Bereits Adolf Hitler sagte bei seiner zweiten Rede vor den Oberkommandierenden auf dem Obersalzberg am 22. August 1939 „Wer redet denn heute noch von der Vernichtung der Armenier?“. Die Leugnung eines Völkermords und die Straflosigkeit der Täter stellt einen Nährboden für weitere Völkermorde dar, welche heute immer noch stattfinden! Stoppt die Leugnung von Völkermorden und die Verunglimpfung der Opfer durch die Täter und ihre Nachfahren!

Yes, You Can Say ‘Genocide,’ Mr. Prim Minister Erdogan!
