Any recognition of the 1915 Genocide against #Armenians, #Greeks, #Chaldeans, #Assyrians, & #Syriacs-#Arameans must include #Kurds as co-criminals of the Genocide. Kurds murdered/raped/forcibly expelled 2.5 million Christians during the 1915 Armenian/Christian Genocide.
This book, “Shall This Nation Die,” by Chaldean Catholic Priest Naayem, an eyewitness to horrors of 1915 Christian Genocide, documents key role of Kurds in committing genocide against indigenous Middle East Christians. @reaIDonIdJTrump @POTUS @EmmanuelMacron @VP @SecPompeo
@reaIDonIdJTrump @POTUS @EmmanuelMacron @VP @SecPompeo Pg 124- “Kurdish tribes in Sairt, the terror of Christians in these regions, had attacked the Christian town with intention of...massacring Christians.” Pg 139: “From top of a high mountain we saw at a distance 100s of Kurds men & women on the watch for their Christian prey...”

I'm starting a new thread on the naẓar amulet for protection against the Evil Eye. Now, the Evil Eye and the symbolism surrounding it is a widely acknowledged and historically relevant phenomenon across many cultures, so I'm just going to focus on the blue-eyed glass talismans.
Our journey starts in ancient #Mesopotamia, where 100s of votive figures were found in the excavation of the temple of Tell Brak. The most exclusive feature of these idols were their eyes. These amulets go back to 3300 BC and are the oldest eye amulets discovered.
The Evil Eye is a common term to refer to a specific curse being cast, intentional or unintentional, by the jealous looks of others towards the success of the one they envy. The ocular amulet is than in fact the charm meant to ward off the true Evil Eye.

Shamash was the Akkadian name for the #Mesopotamian god of the sun, known to the Sumerians as Utu. His main symbol was the solar disc, a circle with four points in each of the cardinal directions and four wavy, diagonal lines emanating from the circle between each point.
According to "Gods, Demons, and Symbols of Ancient Mesopotamia" by Jeremy Black and Anthony Green, the Akkadian name for this #symbol was shamshatu. It was often represented on a pole as a standard. The symbol is currently a popular icon among people native to #Mesopotamia.
Chaldean Christians posing with their ethnic flag, a colored shamshatu flanked by 2 parallel blue bands. Though #Chaldean Catholics are mostly regarded ethnically and historically as a part of the #Assyrian continuity, some claim a Chaldean ethnic identity as a nation of its own.
