In Reply to: [cnn] Fred Parhad reportedly seen in church! posted by CNN from LTU-207-73-65-145.LTU.EDU (188.8.131.52) on Saturday, April 26, 2003 at 11:23AM :
: [San Jose, California]
: Preliminary reports are surfacing among the Assyrian community in California regarding a controversial sculpture, Mr. Fred Parhad. Parhad, who is quite popular (by its definition of being well known, not necessarily well liked) in the community is known for his anti-religious invective and may have spotted recently in an AssyrianChristianChurch.
: Parhad, like the dethroned dictator Saddam Hussein, has many look alikes in order to protect himself from would-be assailants. The Associated Press has recorded eye witness accounts, however, that the person in the church may have actually been Fred Parhad, and not one of the look alikes.
: "It look like him. I swear Brayshid-Baba I see Fred Parhad in Chur-ich" a stunned Ashur Kassab, 43 was quoted as saying. Another parishoner, Nineveh Hanna, 24, said "Farhad was scream 'I'm sorry Alaha... forgiving me please' ... I think he turning Christ-ieen...thankGod. Okeh I nothing more to say."
: As this is a breaking story, we will follow up with more information as we receive it.
