Act NOW! and write to the President of the EU Parliament TOMORROW IS TOO LATE


Act NOW! and write to the President of the EU Parliament TOMORROW IS TOO LATEPlease email the below letter to the President of the European Parliament with your name on the bottom of the email. Jerzy.Buzek@europarl.europa.eu
Mr President Jerzy Buzek,
On Sunday 31st of October 2010 more than 100 worshipers were attending Our Lady of Salvation church in Baghdad when the church was invaded by a group of Al Qaeda militants. As the Al Qaeda militants walked into the church, they started killing indiscriminately starting with the priest at the altar.
Fifty eight of the hostages were killed, including two priests and a nun, and 75 wounded as the Iraqi police stormed this Syrian Catholic Church. Among the deceased are two priests, one nun, men, women, children and even unborn children.
More than 70 Assyrian Churches and institutions have been attacked since 2004 in Iraq. Since the invasion of Iraq in 2003 the Assyrian people of Iraq are being targeted and driven out of their homeland. The lack of security provided to the Assyrian Christians living in Iraq is intolerable. The basic human rights are not even being met in this ruined country.
Assyrian Genocide and Research Center, SEYFO CENTER and I strongly condemns these acts that defy the basic human rights. I am calling upon the European Parliament and the Iraqi government as well as the humanitarian organisations to intervene and protect the Assyrians the indigenous people of Iraq.
Sincerely
