Protect the Iraqi Christian People sign now

Your Excellency, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon,
Secretary General of the United Nations
New York, New York 10017

Dear Secretary General,

We, the undersigned, United Christian Coalition, a worldwide civil society organization, as well as a group of worldwide Iraqi organizations and Christian citizens, intellectuals and our worldwide supporters are gravely concerned at the continuing attempts of certain governments to neglect the protection of Iraqi Christians in their indigenous homeland (Iraq) causing persecution of all Iraqi Christians in their homeland.

In the vanguard of these governments stands the Iraqi government. Since 2003, the Iraqi government has mostly ignored the endeavors of the international community to help the Iraqi Christian people and demand the end of the cruel treatment of all peaceful Christian Iraqis that have suffered the greatest tragedies. The Iraqi Christians have suffered unspoken violent acts such as kidnapping, killing, abuse, bombing of residential, commercial and religious properties in the hands of local terrorist groups while the Iraqi government continued their negligence through symbolic security, weak citizen protection, basic human right abuses and unworthy safety assurances without any effective security strategy to protect its own loyal citizens.

We wish to confirm to you the terrorist that are causing the violence and massacres against Iraqi Christians is none other than an alliance of remnants of local Iraqi criminal gangs, non-Iraqi Islamist and local extremist terrorist groups affiliated to the Al Qaida organization led by Osama Ben Laden.

There is great urgency in this request because the situation in Iraq continues to deteriorate. As numerous reports make clear, Iraq is ruled by a weak government that does not seem to want to protect its own citizens effectively as crimes and abuses continue to be committed against the Iraqi Christians including:

1- Local violence and terrorist acts causing the exodus of 50\% of the Iraqi Christians population to other foreign countries or more than 600,000 people since 2003.

2- Bombing, burning and destruction of more than 75 Christian churches, monasteries and prayer houses.

3- Negligence and weak security that caused the killing of many innocent and peaceful Iraqi Christian citizens including massacres against humanity that included killings of women and children.

We urge the United Nations Security Council to adopt a resolution following the recommendations outlined with this letter. This resolution should:

1) Call for an immediate international investigation and unconditional release of all evidence and documents related to the latest massacre against Iraqi Christians in Baghdad dated October 31st, 2010 inside the Sayidat Al-Najat Christian Church were 58 innocent and peaceful people were killed by the local terrorists. Information related to the individual terrorists that committed this heinous crime against humanity and the peaceful Iraqi citizens while Iraqi security forces waited for several hours.

2) Require the government of Iraq to work with the UN Secretary-General in implementing an effective plan for national security and protection of its citizens and especially the Iraqi Christians

3) Request the UN Secretary-General remain involved in this process and require him to report back to the Council on a regular basis

4) Urge the Government of Iraq to ensure the immediate, safe, and unhindered access to all parts of the country for the United Nations and international humanitarian organizations to provide humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable and displaced Iraqi Christian people.

We therefore appeal to you, Your Excellency the Secretary General, to call on the governments of the states neighboring Iraq as well as the Iraqi government to rectify their negative positions vis-а-vis the Iraqi people and to join the international community in the bid to help Iraq and its people defeat terrorism, realize security and democracy and rebuild their country, thereby restoring peace and security to the Middle East region, key to security and stability in the world.

With sincere thanks and appreciation,
