      Dear Thomas Daniel

       

      AINA writes all words “Syrian” in Assyrian. This is not good for the Syrian Aramean heritage. Never the Monastery of Mor Gabriel was called “Assyrian Monastery”. I suggest, do not more publish the news of AINA with the name Assyrian.

       

      Thanks

       

      Gabriel Rabo

      Turks, Kurds Threaten Assyrian Monastery in Turkey
      Posted GMT 12-2-2008 11:56:18

      Tur Abdin, Turkey (AINA) -- Kurdish leaders from the villages of
      Yayvantepe, Eglence and Candarli,in cooperation with influential
      members of the ruling Justice and Development party (AKP), are
      continuing their so-called "lawful means"campaign to confiscate the
      land of the Assyrian monastery of St. Gabriel, founded in 397 A.D.(AINA
      9-16-2008). During the Ottoman Empire the monastery received the status
      of a Foundation for the Syrian Orthodox Church and is still
      legally regarded as such. Over the last three decades it has developed
      into a major religious and community center that attracts tens of
      thousands visitors from Turkey and abroad. The entireregion has
      benefited from this development, though for some fanatic Kurdish
      village heads, it seems to be a problem.
