Seriously Sadie ...
You titled with glowing cheeks:
"Article by a cutie pie: Abunimah"
No insult intended, but:
Could you please explain to me why the heck there is NO Assyrian writing such an article.
I am seriously interested in the reasons for that "vacuum".
It's not normal anymore.
Without any diagnosis there won't be any cure.
And btw: Personally I don't think Abunimah is a sharp analytical or original mind of any sorts.
Just some notches better than the mainstream media mediocrity.
Patch some pieces together from some research groups, dedicated special forums and better journalists (all good old worn out info), spice it all up with some tortured longwindedness - voilą: you have an Abunimah article.
But this may be also a matter of taste and shouldn't be topical here (maybe at another time).
Just as a Jewish critic once wrote:
That piece was so bad in xxxx respects, that I didn't even read it.
Back then to the great enigma of the Assyrians:
What effectively prevents them from reaching at least Abunimah's level of involvement, interest and achievement?
