NINEVEH PLAINS, Iraq – In a phone conversation with SuroyoFM, former Iraqi parliamentarian Joseph Sliwa spoke about the situation of the Chaldean–Syriac–Assyrian people in the city of Mosul and other Iraqi provinces that were occupied by the Islamic State (ISIS).
Sliwa stated that the Chaldeans–Syriacs–Assyrians from the region are still afraid of ISIS returning to their cities and indicated that a deliberate demographic change is taking place, even after the liberation from ISIS.
Sliwa claimed that significant funds have been allocated for implementing this deliberate demographic change.
He also pointed out that the Christian peoples of Iraq, including Chaldeans–Syriacs–Assyrians, have suffer continued discrimination at the hands of the authorities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), which has not implemented the law fairly.
Making things worse, there has been an inability of authorities at all levels to combat the widespread distribution of uncontrolled weapons.
As a result, the displacement of minority ethnic and religious populations from their homes has increased.
