The following is an interview by Katholische Nachrichten Agentur about the situation in Iraq.

Translation by staff translator: MD

    "Europeans do not know who we are"

    Saturday, 22. Mai 2010 um 08:19

    There are few Christians in Baghdad. Saad Sirop Hanna (45) is one of the last priests in the Iraqi capital. He heads the Chaldean Catholic community of St. Joseph. Hanna, who himself comes from Baghdad, has decided after studying aeronautical engineering to theology and the priesthood. In the interview, the Catholic News Agency (KNA) Hanna reports on the life of the last Christians in Baghdad.(Image: Flag of the Chaldean Catholic Church)

    KNA: What is the situation in your community here in Baghdad?

    Hanna: We are Chaldeans, our church was built in 1959 and is the largest church in Baghdad. Because of emigration are now living in our community still about 400 to 500 families. Previously we had up to 1,500 families. As you saw, our churches are under police protection. The officials in front of the church are Christians in the police service.

Pimping your blog in Breaking News is not a good way to endear yourself to the mods.

Although true, you might want to aquaint yourself with the posting rules for each individual forum that you desire to post in.........the "breaking News" forum is restricted to mainstream sources.

It is further customary to post an introduction thread in the "Welcomes and Introductions" forum for newcomers, so that the membership can get acquainted with you.
