The above map was researched and sketched by the prominent Chaldean artist, poet, and historian Amer Hanna Fatuhi for his 2004 book CHALDEANS SINCE THE EARLY BEGINNING OF TIME, which was modified and expanded as an English version in 2012 under the new title “THE UNTOLD STORY OF NATIVE IRAQIS” | CHALDEANS . This map is the most authentic record of our Chaldean ancestors' land and the sea of the Chaldeans (Tam ti sha mat Kaldie).
Mesopotamia Will Survive … Chaldeans Will Prevail
It is not the first time in history, yet I hope it is going to be the last time that total foreigners who came to my ancestors’ homeland as refugees or invaders to take over a part of this holy land, Mesopotamia, where God’s love was practically shown for the first time ever in the history of mankind. That love was expressed openly, when a Chaldean man, *Abram / Abraham from UR of Chaldees was informed by God all mighty to emigrate from his ancestors' homeland (Babylonia) to the Promised Land (Israel).
The Sunni Kurds who were brought by the Ottoman Empire from Hamadan / Iran are no better than the Gutians, Medians, Achaemenids, the so-called Arabs, the Mongols, the Persian’s Safavids, the Turk’s Ottomans. They were all savage foreigners that will go down in history as evil forces that tried to take advantage of the dire situations that our indigenous people of ancient Mesopotamia (Chaldeans) were and still are facing under different occupations by others. The last two genocides were in 1915 (Armenians-Chaldeans) that was committed by the Ottoman Empire and the ongoing genocide since 2014 committed by multiple evil forces including ISIS, the Kurds’ political leaders, the Islamist Kurds political parties in northern Iraq and the so-called Arab Islamist’ political - religious parties in central and southern Iraq. However, we are still here!
The cradle of civilization was not born / established yesterday, our remarkable Chaldean history goes back over 7000 years more than any race on this planet and we will go on to the end of times. We will not act the way those evil forces committed against us, we will not kill or abuse others when we are in power. Our destiny is to be the leaders of the human civilized world as we were for thousands of years. Our revenge as a great man stated once is WE Will Survive!
Through the Grace of our LORD, we will get back on our feet once again, and when we are back, we will show the entire world who really are the Chaldeans. If someone thinks that this is an illusion, then, let me tell you all, that this is a dream that one day will come true. You may be thinking of this dream according to human’s lifetime, however, I look at it through a bigger view, Mesopotamia / Beth Nahrain’s existence in history. Believe it or not, WE WILL PREVAIL, time will bail me out!
And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
