PhD Jamil Hanna, representative of Assyria Liberation Party, comments the latest events in Syria and the goals of his party to secure the political and national rights of the Assyrian nation in occupied Assyria.
Dr. Hanna also comments a recent interview with HH Patriarch Aphrem II Karim on the Sama TV’s program Nabd al- Sharq, where he acquits the Dawronoye group’s participation in the the Kurdish separatist project of PYD, claiming that “these youngsters never aimed any division of Syria”. The Patriarch even expressed his satisfaction over what happened in the case of the Assyrian schools in Gozarto, claiming that “the crisis was solved in a good way”.
These statements are contradicting what the Patriarch said to Assyria TV in an interview in Sweden on October 1, 2018, Dr. Hanna emphasizes. He urges Assyrian Church leaders not to interfere in political issues, because the politics are not always in line with the Christian doctrine of love, he adds.
