Iraq

The modern country of Iraq corresponds with the ancient region of Mesopotamia – known by many as the cradle of civilization – where the first cities and classical civilizations developed in the fertile region between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

Iraq is an oil rich nation state in the Middle East, formerly ruled by Saddam Hussein. It has been twice attacked by US led coalitions after US public opinion was influenced by deceitful war propaganda (such as, for example, Nurse Nayirah). Iraq was on a list of seven countries which retired 4-star general Wesley Clark (former supreme commander of NATO forces in Europe 1997-2001) stated the US military had plans to invade:

In 2001, in the Pentagon, a general told me : ‘I just received a classified memo from the Secretary of Defense: we will take seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finally, Iran.’

Iraq has a had a long history of Christianity in its nation dating back before the conquest of Islam in the 7th century. The Chaldean Christians have come under increasing persecution since the recent Iraq War as the insurgency after the war has targeted Christian churches and communities on more than one occasion. Many Christians have been forced to flee the country. Approximately three-quarters of a million remain. The United States will not recognize them as political refugees since they consider the country to have been ‘liberated’. Many of these Christians have fled to Syria, where Christians account for more than 10% of the population.

The U.S. government set up a proposal that 12 of Iraq’s 440 government seats be set aside for Christians. The Iraqi government decided to half this to 6, far underrepresenting the percentage of the Christian community by population. While it is possible for Christians to win seats on their own, Iraq’s strongly sectarian voting based upon religion makes this a virtual impossibility.
