The Syriac-Assyrian People and the Treaty of Lausanne

The EU needs to treat the Syriac-Assyrians equal to the Palestinians

Why does the EU devise a ‘two state policy’ for Palestinians and no such right for us?

Why are we as both indigenous and a Christian population treated differently from others within the region?


The 1923 treaty between the newly founded Republic of Turkey and thevictorious powers of the First World War downplayed the significance of thegenocide against the Syriacs*, depriving them of their rights. Since then, theSyriacs have experienced many disasters, including the loss of their historyand their homeland of Mesopotamia.
