We Christians in Iraq have lived through hard times. Many of us have been killed, kidnapped and forced to leave. Families are split and scattered in various countries.

Iraq is our homeland—we have been here long before the arrival of Islam. We are an indigenous people, not some colonial entity coming from somewhere else.

We have given a lot to Islamic culture during the Umayyad and Abbasid eras. We have become part of Islamic culture and today we want to continue to exist in a spirit of love and respect for human rights.
