With Ishtar TV our people can raise their voices, claiming their national rights and finally proclaiming their national identity, culture, traditions, and civilization. It is a bridge that connects our people in their motherland with our people in the diaspora.

Ishtar TV tries to emphasize the usage of the Syriac language as much as possible as it's the language that unites all Chaldean Syriac Assyrians. The channel seeks to revive it and develop it through several programs targeting the new generation in order to keep it from disappearing.

It highlights the concerns of all Iraqi components with logic and balance in hopes of spreading harmony, peace, and love. The channel renounces all forms of violence and discrimination in Iraq.
