Returning Home to Khabur

(Above: An Assyrian Christian inspects graffiti left by ISIS in his village in Khabur, Syria. The graffiti reads, in part, “The Islamic State will endure forever.” Photo credit Jeff Gardner, copyright 2015.) The civil war in Syria has driven thousands of Assyrian Christians from their homes. But today, thanks to the efforts of a Christian defense force, some 200 of these displaced Christian families are hoping to return to their homes and rebuild their lives. The Restore Nineveh Now Foundation has launched a Crowdrise initiative to help these families return home to the Khabur Valley region of Syria. Please help us help them by donating generously – every dollar...

An Important Announcement

  On May 13, 2016, three organizations, the Restore Nineveh Now Foundation, The Yezidi Human Rights Organization-International and The Assyrian Genocide Research Center-Seyfo Center, will take a major step on behalf of our oppressed people in Iraq, especially those that have been assassinated, tortured, falsely imprisoned, raped, enslaved and robbed over the past year and a half. In advance of this extremely important action the Restore Nineveh Now Foundation wants to thank members of the executive committee of the American Mesopotamian Organization as well as members of the board of directors of the Restore Nineveh Now Foundation for their vision, leadership and patience.

RNNF meets with senior advisers to Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi

RNNF meets with senior advisers to Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi

  In mid-March representatives from the Restore Nineveh Now Foundation (RNNF), met with senior advisers to Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to discuss the inclusion of the Nineveh Plain Protection Units (NPU) in the US Government’s aid program for Iraq. In light of the US State Department’s declaration that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is committing genocide against Iraq’s religious minorities, RNNF is calling on the US Government to work with Prime Minister al-Abadi to include NPU in its Iraq Train & Equip Fund (ITEF). The objective of ITEF is to train, advise, and assist the Iraqi Army in initiating and sustaining combat operations against ISIL. According to The National Defense Authorization Act for FY16, US Government defense articles, services, and related training must be extended to “Kurdish and tribal security forces and other local security forces.” The Joint Explanatory Statement to the NDAA/Subtitle C-Matters Relating to Syria and Iraq defines local security forces as those “…that are committed to protecting highly vulnerable ethnic and religious minority communities, such as Yezidi, Christian, Assyrian and Turkmen.” The Nineveh Plain Protection Units, which were formed in late 2014 to protect Iraq’s Assyrian Christians from the genocidal onslaught of ISIL, are the only registered, local security force under the authority of Iraqi Prime Minister al-Abadi. Since the NPU is headquartered thirty miles from Mosul and is strategically positioned for the upcoming military campaign to expel ISIL from Iraq, RNNF made the case that thousands of NPU members urgently require US military assistance to participate fully in the anti-ISIL campaign. In a letter (see below) sent to President Obama, select members of Congress and the Department of Defense, RNNF pointed out that while both Kurdish and Sunni tribal security forces have been trained and equipped by the US, the program has yet to include other minorities such the Assyrian NPU. In addition to fulfilling Congress’ mandate to aid Iraq’s military capacity, including the NPU into ITEF will temper competing sectarian-based territorial claims over the Nineveh Plain, promote national unity by integrating Iraq’s minorities within the country’s national security institutions and be a beneficial step towards a more inclusive, united Iraq.

Gozarto Protection Forces asks Restore Nineveh Now Foundation for help!

The Gozarto Protection Forces (GPF), an Assyrian defensive unit in Syria, have officially asked the Restore Nineveh Now Foundation (RNNF) to advocate for them and their efforts to all relevant U.S. government offices and organizations. The GPF was formed by Assyrian Christians in the Hasaka province, located in northeast Syria, shortly after the start of the Syrian Civil War in 2011, and its purpose is to provide protection, help and humanitarian aid to Assyrians and others terrorized by the various militant forces waging this conflict. In a letter (see below) sent from the political leadership of the GPF to RNNF, the GPF asked RNNF to “approach U.S. Government agencies and American non-government(al) organizations” on their behalf. RNNF has already been supporting the GPF through its Fallen Fighter Fund and will help the GPF in any other way it can. We are asking everyone to help support the GPF in everything that they do for Christains and others suffering in this war. Thank you Donate Download (PDF,...

Another Cafe Bombed in Zalin (Qamishli)!

Today at roughly 6:30 pm, local time, a cafe in the Assyrian Christian neighborhood Al-Wusta in the Assyrian Christian city of Zalin (Qamishli), Syria, was bombed. Eyewitnesses tell RNNF that the bomb, which was attached to a bicycle, was left just outside of the Star Cafe, located just 40 to 50 yards from the Miami Cafe, which was bombed in early January. The bomb did extensive damage to the Star Cafe, and initial reports tell of 3 dead and up to 19 injured, at least four of them critically. No group has yet to take responsibility for the attack. RNNF joins the Gozarto Protection Forces in condemning the attack and calling loudly for international intervention and protection against the ongoing terror attacks directed against the Christians of Syria. RNNF is renewing it call to support the Christian children and fallen Christian fighters of Syria through its Christian Children and Fallen Fighter...
