Fred once mentioned that they built homes for Kurds AND Assyrians in such and such a village. If they did that, and if they continue to help the residents of Northern Iraq (mostly Assyrians, but including the other groups), why not consider actually working WITH Kurds, Arabs, Turkomans, and whatever other people live there? The AAS might just build the necessary bridges with those communities not only to generate more funding for their projects, but also so that if North Iraq ever does become a state, the residents will remember that the "Assyrian Aid Society" helped them in their time of need, too. Instead of discriminating and only helping "their own", they helped their neighbors... do you agree/disagree?
