I don't appreciate you posting my real name here.

I understand that I am in an article that can be easily found.

However, I still would like it if my privacy was respected.

Well, these are the Orthodox Christians who live in East Turkey, North Syria, South Iraq etc. Basicely in former Kurdistan. They speak Aramaic.
