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

Aim[edit]

To establish the independent democratic 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 Aramean cause.
  • To work for recapture the stolen geographical, historical and cultural rights of the Aramean people.
  • Through political and mass media efforts, work for the foundation of an Aramean land in the historical Aramean-area.
  • To work for preservation of the Aramean linguistic, literary and cultural heritage from the systematic and governamental organized “Arabization,- Turcification, Kurdification and Islamisation.”
  • To counteract the assimilation in the Diaspora as well as in the homeland, and constantly work for the union of the Aramean people with the national cause, namely the future land of the Arameans, with the starting point from Lebanon.

Principles[edit]

  1. The 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 Aramean land.
