the ongoing persecution and suffering of Assyrians, Chaldeans, Mandaeans and other religious minorities in Iraq;
the mass exodus of Christians and Mandaeans from Iraq to flee persecution; and
the resolution of the United States House of Representatives to allocate at lease $10 million in emergency funds for the religious minorities of the Nineveh Plains; and
calls on the Government in the strongest possible terms to lobby for better protection for Christians and Mandaeans in Iraq and also calls on the Government to closely examine the decision of the United States House of Representatives, with a view to increasing humanitarian assistance to the persecuted Christian and Mandaean minorities.
