: Yeah, I couldn't believe what Jeff wrote about Rev. Joseph at the convention.... Wait a minute, yes I could. Joseph is a classic idiot. If Joseph wants things to change in Iraq, why doesn't he go live there, himself, act as he wants others to, & see how long he lives, talking & acting like that....
... he came to the convention from Iraq and he has been living there for weeks or possibly months. He is living there and trying to make things better, but going about it the wrong way. He also mentioned that the common theme he hears over and over again is that the Assyrians in Iraq feel like they are alone and isolated...they want Assyrians in the diaspora to help them, either by coming to Iraq and sharing their expertise, or in some other way.
He talks the talk, and he walks the walk...we just disagree with him on religion and statehood. The other Assyrians, he said, are cowards, and he is right. Quite a few people were upset that he said that, but he repeated it just in case nobody heard. The Assyrians just talk the talk in America... nobody is DOING anything.
