Ethnic dimension of Iraqi Assyrians often ignored

ÔÇťThe images of 1914 and 2014,ÔÇŁ remarked Sabri Atman, director of the Assyrian Genocide Research Center, ÔÇťare very similar indeed.ÔÇŁ As the centenary of the Sayfo, the Ottoman genocide against Assyrians, approaches, northern IraqÔÇÖs ancient Christian communities are facing a similar nightmare at the hands of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS). Yet, while English-speaking peoples have become familiar with IraqÔÇÖs Yazidi minority since ISÔÇÖ summer offensive, Assyrians worldwide are complaining of media misrepresentation of their ethnic identity.

According to Feyyaz Kerimo, writer and teacher living in Sweden, the 1915 genocide had irrevocable effects on Assyrian identity which is made weaker and fell apart today.

I watched the Rwandan genocide unfold. WeÔÇÖre making the same mistakes in Iraq.

In 1994, I was tasked with stopping a genocide waged, in part, by children and youth. At the time, I was the United Nations Force Commander for the UN Assistance Mission to Rwanda. My opponents, the Interahamwe,were highly organized in their recruitment and training of youth, well before the killing began. I saw firsthand the way they used children, some as young as 13, to commit horrific acts. The experience of facing a child soldier from the barrel of a gun left me questioning the worldÔÇÖs very moral fabric.
