NEWS: Assyrian language -- National language of Iraq
« on: January 08, 2014, 06:42:08 AM »
The Iraqi parliament enacted into law this morning January 7, 2014 the Assyrian (Syriac) language as one of the national languages of Iraq. The Iraqi Constitution recognizes that the Turkmen and Assyrian (Syriac) languages are official languages ​​in the administrative units that constitute of national population density. And allows each region or province to take a local language as an additional official language if the majority of the population approved so in a general referendum.

Being part of the the national language will have a lot of gains for our people in occupied Assyria.

Thanks for posting that! Read about it yesterday while it was still being debated. Glad it has now passed. A good symbolic victory for our people.

And let us not forget the efforts of Younadam Kanna and others in making this happen, as he has been active on this file for years now.

You can read more about this here too (Arabic): http://www.ankawa.com/forum/index.php/topic,720127.msg6181742.html#msg6181742

Yes, I also added another source (Source 3) As showing Kanna as the reason for the Assyrian language being national language of Iraq.

This is really good, and I just hope they spend more money for our schools, so our people learn our language faster. Reggarding destht d Nineveh I am not worried since everyone speaks really good Assyrians, but in Nohdra and Ainkawa and especially in Koyasenjaq, they barely call themsleves Assyrian. In Nohdra is not bad either nor in Ainkawa, but our people in those two cities behave like qurdayeh and this is not good. In Koyasenjaq they dont even call them Assyrians but kurdish christians and they speak only Kurdish and arabic...

I have a feeling that the next step is "Nineveh Plains Region" Since Assyrian language has been enacted by law as national.

Ashuraya that came to mind for me too. Though there is only 4 months left, with the iraqi election looming, the PM may be in the mood to make the wishes of as many people come true as possible. This includes the Assyrians to grant them their own administrative region.

Yonadam Kanna -  "Today once again the language of Christ, the language of the ancestral, the language of Babylon and Assyria has returned to become one of the official languages, along with Arabic , Kurdish and Turkmen as official languages practised by our people. Also, it would be considered the official language in areas of high population density of our people in the areas of Nineveh plain or areas of the governorates of Dahuk and Arbil. Thousands of congratulations to our people. I extend my greetings and appreciation to the House of Representatives who voted to pass this law. This law is considered a proud moment for the Iraqi people where it confirms pluralism in Iraq and acknowledges the plurality of ethnic and cultural heritage in Iraq. "
