After Bishop Hanna Aydin’s recent statements in Berlin, a hot debate has blossomed up within the Assyrian community about the interference of church leaders in politics. Our studio guests Dr. Gabriel Oussi and Simon Poli discuss and analyze the situation. The program begins with a speech in January 2009 in Berlin by Bishop Hanna Aydin, where he strongly criticized Turkey for the confiscation of the monastery of Mor Gabriel lands. Tih was during the greatest manifestation ever made by the Assyrians in Europe. Then we will hear his words in March 2018 where he shows his exaggerated pride of the Turkish flag and calls the visiting minister ”Our Father, Brother and Ruler.” Simon Poli regards this subservience as an insult to all Assyrian martyrs.
The conclusion of the guests is:
