                                                           The Language Awareness 


Assyriac is the language of the Assyrians & Babylonians.
In fact, a large part of the Hebrew and Arabic languages is borrowed from Assyriac including the Alphabets.

Let us look at the Definition of Civilization.  A Civilization is a culture which has reached a level of superiority, generally distinguished by urban life.  This means that a Civilization is a Society, capable of supporting a large number of expert people to manage the Financial, Social, Political, and Religious needs of a heavily populated area. 

Also, t
his society has Art that represents people and their activities and has Writing structure / Language to keep records and massive building architecture in place. 
All of these characteristics of civilization, first appeared in Mesopotamia.   

                                      Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Assyrian Neo-Aramaic
                                                                  All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. 
                           They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
                                                                    (Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)


Is an important foundation for any culture to survive and to keep its existence and that applies to our society as Assyrian/Chaldean. 
It’s not enough to only speak the language, but also we should learn how to read and write in our language.  Without using our language, it will fade and slowly it will disappear and die.

Is the language of Assyrians and Chaldeans, if we disregarded it, we will loose an important building block and an
essential characteristic of our heritage and as a result, we will loose ourselves and our identities as a nation.  Our enemy, for political or religious reasons, wants to hide the truth by deleting one of the important elements of our heritage, our language.  But the enemy forgot a very important facts;                                              


Truth can NOT be Hidden   History can NOT be Changed 
I solely salute all the single individuals and any ethnic group who were never intimidated by the enemies of our nation. 

They were not intimidated by their
threats and their pressures to abandon our native language, Aramaic. 
tribes and individuals
 whom kept using their language, until now, are truly the pride of our nation. 

Now, more than ever, I am very optimistic because the importance of  language awareness is growing

between a large number of Assyrians and Chaldeans individuals, now
more than ever. 

I am very confident that our language (Assyriac) will revive and prosper again. 

Our identity, as one nation again, will reinstate as a legitimate and prominent nation.

and only then . . 

No one will be able to deny our rights for our homeland - Assyria,
and for our self autonomy and self government.

Our Hope will never Die!


God Bless Our Nation
