Violence Should not Call for more Violence, Says Chaldean Bishop
By Huda Metti :: 98857 Views :: Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, Government & Society

Baghdad, IRAQ – "Violence should not call for more violence! We are on the side of justice, not the death penalty,” Chaldean Bishop Warduni affirmed from Iraq.  "If he were still alive, Archbishop Rahho himself would not permit that someone would die for him.”

Contentions rise high as Chaldeans call on the Iraqi government to spare the life of the man convicted of killing the Archbishop on February, 29 outside of a church.  The Archbishop was leading the Way of the Cross during Lent when Ahmad Ali Ahmad, a ilitant from al-Qaida, led a group to abduct the Archibishop and kill his sub deacons. 

Chaldean Auxiliary Bishop Shlemon Warduni of Baghdad said, "Let us recall that the principles that have always inspired the Church are forgiveness and reconciliation."

Private Chaldean Investment Group Silently Buying Property
By David Najor :: 33 Views :: Business & Finance

California, USA - A group of private Chaldean business leaders from California and Michigan has begun exploratory efforts in rescuing a failed commercial building on Broadway in El Cajon, California. 

The six unit building was forced into foreclosure by El Cajon City Council after ongoing disputes with the city’s nonprofit partner, Heartland.  The city entered into a partnership with the nonprofit in 1999 to buy and renovate the rundown building so that Heartland could offer job training and other programs there, but Heartland failed to make loan payments.

Due to informal bid discussions on commercial property in California, www.CHALDEAN.org was able to discover the major share owners of the hundred million dollar Chaldean group considering the purchase of the building.

The ‘Rizza Maraka’ Shortage Explained
By Neda Ayar :: 98056 Views :: Business & Finance, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

California, USA – “No Riza Maraka!  Who do I blame,” says Anthony Matti of Chula Vista, California.  Amid growing concerns of global rice shortage two of America’s biggest retailers place a limit on rice purchases.  Wal-Mart's warehouse chain Sam's Club, the largest warehouse and food grocery retailer in the US is limiting bulk purchases of rice this week, citing "recent supply and demand trends".  Seattle-based Costco Wholesale Corporation has also imposed limits in some stores on bulk rice purchases.

“I bet the limits are in Michigan, Chicago, Arizona, and here,” says Matti with a sly smile.  “It is no coincidence Chaldeans live mostly in those regions.  Chaldeans are eating too much rizza maraka (rice and stew) and we are causing a rice shortage.  What do you expect?  Chaldeans are not going to eat that fast food poison or restaurant filth.”

Chuckling over his own sense of humor, Matti does have a serious side.  The undergraduate student just submitted his final exam paper titled the Economic Food Web.

Matti says that world rice prices have more than doubled in the past year as demand has outstripped supply.  “The culprits include the drought-ravaged rice crop shortage, alternative fuel technologies, global population growth, speculation on food prices, and rise in traditional fuel prices.”

By David Najor :: 69664 Views :: Law & Order, Business & Finance

EU Continual Effort to Ignore Refugee Crisis Triggers Chaldean Protest
By Sabah Hajjar :: 65538 Views :: Law & Order, Government & Society

Brussels, Belgium - Chaldeans were outraged over the European Union's Slovenian presidency rejection of the German asylum proposal.  The proposal offered asylum seekers from Iraqi’s Christian community special status due to the organized and systematic genocide in Iraq.

 “The EU President is a coward and refused to tell the truth of what is occurring.  No one is blind to the fact that Christian minorities are being targeted.  They are afraid to say the truth, so as to not offend Muslims.  Where are the moderate Muslims to condemn such attacks.  Why don’t they tell their followers to turn over evidence and stop harboring these thugs by their silence,” says Hamsa Mansour. 

Nearly 4,000 Chaldeans marched into the streets to protest on Friday in Luxembourg.  “You see how Christians protest?  We are peaceful.  Because of our peace, our faith in Jesus, and that we do not believe in war or converting or conquering by the sword we are attacked and killed,” adds Mansour.  The demonstration in Brussels on Saturday brought protestors from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland.

Award Winning Journalist Adam Doster Investigates the Plight of Iraqi Refugees
By Sabah Hajjar :: 71625 Views :: Government & Society, Opinion and Editorials

Illinois, USA - Former collegiate award winning journalist, Adam Doster, a University of Michigan graduate and previous managing editor of the Michigan Independent uncovers the horrors and causalities of the Iraqi War.  In Doster’s revealing article, “They Can’t Go Home Again,” Chaldeans are showcased in an in-depth examination of Iraqi refugees and the indifference shown to their plight by the United States.

Doster tackles the exodus, abandonment, and rejection that has scattered nearly a million Iraqi Chaldeans.  A group caught in the cross-hairs of the U.S. led war against former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.  A group pushed to the verge of extinction by Islamic terrorists and ignored by western countries for fear of seeming bias to the native people of Iraq. 

Doster writes, “On a rainy March morning, in a drab office complex off one of Metro Detroit’s many expressways, I met Mona and Fadi Rabban.  In broken English, they greeted me graciously, keeping their heads slightly bowed. The diminutive Fadi was dressed in black jeans and a beat-up leather jacket. His beautiful middle-aged wife donned a thin, black cardigan and black slacks, which seemed less suitable for the Midwest winter.

Nordstrom of Partridge Creek Contracts with Chaldean Entrepreneur to Extend Skin Care Products Line
By Brenda Hermiz :: 92463 Views :: Health & Fitness, Business & Finance

Michigan,USA - The youth and beauty of a Chaldean is all too obvious.  The unique diet, good genes, olive toned skin, frequent cleanings, and skin care management secrets all contribute to the youthful beauty.  This unique trait is something the Nordstrom retailer took notice, and hopes to leverage, at the opening of their new store in the Mall at Partridge Creek. 

The store has contracted with Joanne Recchia-Kallabat’s company SkinOnyx, the U.S. distributor for Italy’s Kleraderm skin care products to make the product available in the cosmetics section of the new Nordstrom. 

"It feels like I brought Nordstrom with me," she said of her return.  The only other U.S. store that carries Kleraderm is the Nordstrom in Troy's Somerset Collection, where they've earned a strong following over the past three years.  "Nordstrom calls them 'Kleranets' because they only want Kleraderm products," Recchia-Kallabat said.  Kleraderm is an advanced skin care line developed by a doctor in Bologna, Italy.  "It really works," Recchia-Kallabat said. "It's been a beauty secret of the stars for years."

In January, Kuriakuz filed papers with the Secretary of State showing that before the New Year even began, his campaign had already raised over $45,000.

"I am passionate about serving my hometown in the State Legislature and am very grateful for the amount of support I've received so early on," Kuriakuz said. "I am especially proud to announce that unlike many candidates, I did not raise any money from special interest groups. All of my supporters are longtime friends, neighbors and relatives who have known me for years, believe in my abilities and support my vision for the State of Michigan."

EWTN Journalist Takes on U.S. President Over Christian Iraqi Security
By Huda Metti :: 70538 Views :: Government & Society, Chaldean Caucus

Washington DC, USA – Top broadcast journalist, Raymond Arroyo of the EWTN Global Catholic Network, brings the plight of Christian minorities directly to the feet of the U.S. president.  During an exclusive interview with the U.S. President George Bush Arroyo questions U.S. support of Iraqi minority human rights and what more can be done to protect Iraqi Christians.  Portions of the interview have been released to www.CHALDEAN.org prior to the public airing of the interview on EWTN on Friday, April 11, at 8 p.m. on the “The World Over.”

The interview will air on the eve of Pope Benedict’s April 15th – 20th visit to the U.S. and is expected to cover U.S. relations with the Holy See, the papal visit, Iraq, and much more. 

“Chaldeans are eager to watch the interview this Friday,” says Farouk Slewa.  “We are hopeful that the suffering for all Iraqis comes to an end soon.  Our people have mixed feelings over how the war is being handled.  One political party is for oil and the other party wants the war to end horribly for their own gain.  In the middle are real humans.  What is needed is more attention and discussion of the honest issues.  Why is America not covering these issues more?”
