Suggestion for A National mourning days should be in effect immediately until the end of this year.

We found peace and happiness in diaspora regardless of what is tragecally happenning to us in our homeland. All we can do is celebrating our big tragedy continuously likewise celebrating this coming new year 2011, or getting busy with nonsense meetings, and above all of these, shamefully, we never stop partying as if who is being slaughtered in iraq in last October 31 of this year, only one month ago, means nothing for us!!
Which kind of unity message is that where the 43 Assyrians slaughtered in the syrian rites church and none of the coming holidays celebrations were cancelled.. Atleast for this year!!

As an urgent matter to think seriously about our fate as a nation and until we find a solution to our tragedy, a National mourning days should be in effect immediately until the end of this year.

When shall we start nationally having real feelings for each other? The killing point in our tragedy is not only "we lost it all without shame" but it is because we have no shame anymore!! Look to those who will be in the night clubs celebrating the new year while the blood of our Martyrs is not dried yet!! This is a very simple case of how some Assyrians if not most, are driven by their motto " who cares!" collectively wrongfully responding to such tragedy showing no respect.

43 dead in a political event comparing to our population is a national mourning event and certaily will be passed through, unnoticeably (as usuall), as if everything is OK and what was left is to celebrate!! Life must goes on!!!!!!!

Frankly, Assyrians have been framed as partying people, Assyrians were driven to parties like no day after tomorrow!!!!!!!
Are we missing something here!!!

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
