U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem, the Iraqi Elections, and a Call to Action

Excerpt: “​In the event, NEC-SE believes that the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Israel’s ancient capital marks the dawn of a new day in the Middle East, one in which the possibilities for a functional peace are significantly heightened. Here we would remind readers that “Jerusalem” translates in the Assyrian language — the language spoken by Christ – as “place” or “root of peace.” Assyrian Christians in Iraq maintain hope that peace will indeed come to their own troubled region, where they must contend with the loss of all but one of their seats in the Iraqi Parliament to Shia politicians and Kurds aligned with political leadership of Iran and Turkey.”
