Iraq's Stolen Election: How Assyrian Representation Became Assyrian Repression

In elections characterized as fraudulent by a wide spectrum of the public, five new Christian representatives were elected in May 2018 to fill the five seats reserved for Christians in the Iraqi Parliament. Crude Iraqi electoral law left the voting process for the selection of Christian MPs open to abuse. This enabled powerful non-Christian parties to exploit the quota system.

The Assyrians of Turkey

(AINA) -- The Assyrian community in Turkey dates back to 1000 B.C. or more. In the last century it has been driven out by the Turkish Genocide of World War One, which killed 750,000 Assyrians (75%), as well as one million Greeks and 1.5 million Armenians, as well as by the policies of Turkey against it's minority communities.
