Aramean Democratic Organization (Syriac: ܛܘܟܣܐ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܕܝܡܘܩܪܛܝܐ) also known as ArDO, was founded in 1988[1] and is a Syriac political party in Lebanon.[2][3][4][5] The Aramean Democratic Organization is aiming to establish a Syriac (Aramean) nation.[6]

Aim[edit]

To establish the independent democratic Syriac (Aramean) state on the land of Aram, with Lebanon as a point of departure.[clarification needed]

Objectives[edit]

  • To build an opinion, on national as well as on international level, for the Syriac (Aramean) cause.
  • To work for recapture the stolen geographical, historical and cultural rights of the Syriac (Aramean) people.
  • Through political and mass media efforts, work for the foundation of an Syriac (Aramean) land in the historical homeland.
  • To work for preservation of the Syriac (Aramean) linguistic, literary and cultural heritage from the systematic and governamental organized “Arabization,- Turkification, Kurdification and Islamisation.”
  • To counteract the assimilation in the diaspora as well as in the homeland, and constantly work for the union of the Syriac (Aramean) people with the national cause, namely the future land of the Syriac (Aramean), with the starting point from Lebanon.

Principles[edit]

  1. The Syriacs (Arameans) as people possess a nation's all capacities such as a language, as well cultural and ethnic identity. But it is an oppressed people, whose original land is divided between occupational forces.
  2. Citizens of the Aramean nation are individuals belonging to the following communities:

Language[edit]

The Aramaic language, the spoken language of Jesus Christ, would be the official language of the Syriac (Aramean) land.
