Mosul’s Muslims to its Christians: Come Back To Your Home

The Christians have always been and will always be one of the essential groups that construct the Mosuli fabric. A social fabric that is not only limited to the city itself, but extends to the entire Nineveh valley. This fabric stood for centuries, way before modern day Iraq itself, has been there for generations, and no invasion, throughout hthe history of Mosul and the surrounding towns have always stood together to protect their existence. This city and its community stood every crisis came at it.

Today, after dark times passed by, which reached it’s climax in the past three years, this is Mosul that ISIS wanted to break: the city’s Muslims calling upon the city’s Christians to return and tell them: the city is ready for your return and set to celebrate Christmas and conduct the Mass with you. As Mosul and its vecenety celebrate freedom and Christmas, trees are decorated, churches are renovated and prepared, hand in hand by Muslims and Christians, to hold masses at Christmas night, and the spirit and joy of the holidays fill the air, and this is the spirit that will carry on for ages ahead

Mosul cannot be itself without all its components; it is not Mosul without it’s Christians, Yazidis, Shabak, and the rest. It is not Mosul if the churches’ bells do not rang along with the call for prayers from mosques, and trees are decorated at every home, regardless of religious preference.

Merry Christmas to you all, home and abroad

  1. Merry Christmas. I hope one day the groups who fled will be able to, and want to, return and that they will be welcomed and that people will be able to live together in peace.

  2. De christen hebben met hun eigen handen Mosul gebouwd en in de loop de eeuwen ontwikkel. De Koerden hebben samen met ISIS drie jaar geleden binnen 24 uur de christenen de tijd gegeven om Mosul te verlaten. De wereld is getuige geweest van een totlale volksverhuizing van de de Aramesche christen. Voor het eerst in de historie van Mosul mochten de kerkklokken na 1600 jaar niet meer luiden. Een barbaars Islamitische beweging heeft Mosul christen-vrij gemaakt. Blijkbaar is dit een vorm van islamitische vredelievende religie.
    De Aramese christenen zijn het wantrouwen van hun Koerdische buren gewend; maar niet op gerekend, dat hun islamitische buren in 21ste eeuw nog steeds zo gewetenloos zouden zijn.
    Zonder Aramese christenen in Mosul, is te vergelijken met eten zonder zout.
    Het is nu aan de islamitische bewoners om te laten zien dat ze de baarbaarse handelen van ISIS en de Koerden jegens de Aramese christen afkeuren en buigend en met open armen ontvangen. Mosul zonder haar inheemse bewoners; de Aramese christen is Mosul niet.
