In 2003, there were 1.5 million Christians in Iraq, predominantly Chaldean Christians who make-up 80% or 1.2 million of Iraqi Christians. Since the start of the Iraq War in 2003, Chaldean Christians, Syriac Christians, and other Christians of Iraq (collectively, “Iraqi Christians”) have faced a devastating genocide at the hands of ISIS, Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq, and other terrorists and extremist militias in Iraq. Now, there are 250,000 Christians remaining in Iraq. Iraqi Christians seek to protect our right to preserve our 7,000+ year old ancient Mesopotamian culture through the reparations of billions in stolen property, recognition of the genocide from various international bodies and governments, bringing the terrorists to justice, and improving the security in our Christian towns and neighborhoods in Iraq.
The Iraqi Christian Genocide Project advances the investigation, genocide collection, and preparation of extensive legal cases to support achieving accountability, reparations, and justice for Iraqi Christian genocide victims. The Iraqi Christian Foundation works to advance the initiatives of the Iraqi Christian Genocide Project at international bodies, as well as through working with governments, the international criminal justice system, and civil remedies.
