Destruction of Iraqi Antiquities Draws International Concern
By Rita Abro :: 9 Views :: Community & Culture, Government & Society, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

Iraq, Baghdad  — There is mounting international concern among historical and antiquity scholars that Iraq ministers may try to change their history.  The “cradle of civilization” has been a fountain of information to the world, divulging archaeological secrets going as far back as ten thousand years. 

Scholars are worried that the appointment of religiously conservative Shiite Muslims throughout Iraq’s traditionally secular archaeological institutions will threaten the preservation of the country’s pre-Islamic history.

Sumerian, Akkadian, Chaldean, Assyrian, Babylonian, Parthian, Sassanian and a lineage of other civilizations are at threat to be lost forever. Ongoing looting, and what some fear to be intended efforts to remove pre-Islamic history, continues at archaeological sites throughout Iraq.

Dr. Donny George’s recent departure as chairman of the State Board of Antiquities and Heritage, and his flight to Syria with his family, is among the latest results of a transformation that began in December when a Shiite-dominated government was elected in Baghdad.

Indicative of the Taliban regime destroying historic antiquities in Afghanistan many scholars fear that Iraqi fundamentalist Islamists plan to do the same. “They are bringing their family and their tribes and giving them high jobs.  They are not qualified.  They are not trained or believe in what they do or what is right for Iraqi history,” says Selwa Marpouls, a Chaldean archeologist who has worked for the former ministry. “This is very bad.  Iraqi history will be changed forever if something is not done.”

Pregnant Author Called to Stand Trial for Offending Turkishness
By Rita Abro :: 7 Views :: Government & Society, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

ISTANBUL, Turkey – Chaldeans, Assyrians, and Armenians have long called for Turkey to accept responsibility for the slaughter of minorities.  Unprotected and left ravaged by the Turks over a million were murdered. 

Turkey has stubbornly refused to participate in any investigation or address concerns by the European Union regarding the genocide.  Turkey, a Western ally and NATO member has long moved counter to inherent democratic principals.  Now Turkey has turned to trample on the inherent freedoms of expression by putting on trial one of Turkey’s leading authors who boldly calls for the Turkish government to reveal the truth. 

Elif Shafak, one of Turkey's leading authors, is about to have a baby — and go on trial.  The reason for this strange conjunction of joy and foreboding is her new novel, which has exposed her to a charge of "insulting Turkishness" because it touches on one of the most disputed episodes of her country's history — the massacres of Chaldeans, Assyrians, and Armenians during the final years of the Ottoman Empire.

By Sam Yousif :: 10 Views :: Business & Finance

Ohio, USA - For years, Randa Shallal has been sweetening up family and friends with a secret-recipe concoction she describes as a "fabulously fudgy cocoa peanut sauce that's great on ice cream, pretzels, cookies, or even just a spoon."

Thanks to a new commercial food-processing facility at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation on State Rt. 582 north of Bowling Green, she's found an economically feasible way to begin bottling and selling her "Panda Potion No. 5" commercially.

Shallal says, "It was by learning of this facility that I had an epiphany that I could do this," she said. "I always knew I couldn't do anything commercially in my own home. ... I was at a [Women's Entrepreneurial Network] meeting in November when a woman stood up and talked about this kitchen, and it came over me like a wave: I can do this."

By Rita Abro :: 13 Views :: Religion & Spirituality, Community & Culture

Tbilisi, Gerogia – The Assyro-Chaldean community will be attending the Synod of Catholic Caucasus in Tbilisi, Georgia.  The Synod will gather all the priests, representatives of religious communities and 56 lay people from parish communities (84 people in all) for two residential sessions: the first session runs from September 4 to 8 and the second from November 5 to 9.

Communion of the Church, formation of the faithful and the role of the laity are the main themes of the first Synod of the Apostolic Administration of the Caucasus. The first session of deliberations were inaugurated at 5pm with a solemn celebration in St. Mary’s Assumption church in Tbilisi.

Chaldean clergy and lay leaders will actively participate in addressing issues relating to the Diaspora of the Chaldean people.  Inherent in their struggles, the Assyro-Chaldeans face difficulty ministering to the community while under pressure of war, persecution, forced cultural migration, and adaptation to cultural pressures and customs imposed by hosting countries.

Chaldeans Applaud Euro MPs New Turkey Demands
By Rita Abro :: 7 Views :: Government & Society, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

London, UK - “Would Europe allow a country to join the union if it stubbornly denies the facts of a Jewish Holocaust,” says Suhala Yohannan, a Chaldean activist fighting to educate Europe of the atrocities and danger of Turkey’s denial.  “For healing to take place, for the sake of understanding, the EU must reject Turkey’s bid if they continue to hide and deceive.  They refuse to be true partners and embrace core democratic principals.” 

Turkey continues to snub Europe and their calls for reform.  European MPs have criticized Turkey's slow pace of reform and said it should recognize the massacre of Armenians, Assyrians, and Chaldeans in 1915 as genocide before joining the EU.

A Chaldean Father’s Age May Contribute to Autism
By Rita Abro :: 16 Views :: Health & Fitness

New York, USA - Older Chaldean mothers often worry that their age will affect their pregnancy, and the birth of their baby. It doesn't help to see the medical term 'elderly primagravida' on your notes, (meaning older, first time mother) and some Chaldean women feel that extra tests and interventions are used because of their age.

Chaldean trends of marrying and having babies between the ages of 18 – 25 are being lost to the cultural assimilation of Western society. 

 Chaldean couples continue to flirt with the concept of having children at later ages.  While many often thought the danger solely rested with the woman, no research says men having children later in life is equally dangerous.  Men who wait increase the chances for offspring with autism.
