The "home" land....

Greetings all,

I am still in Egypt and will be home soon, have a lot of material on what is going on here (Mid East in general) and promise to write in greater depth when I get home in a couple of weeks....

For those that dn't know me, I have been travelling around the Mid East for 3 months now....

Just one thing I just needed to share with you, as an Australian "western" born Assyrian/ Middle Easterner - is the complete lack of cultural awareness I have and how lacking "we" (ie the first generations of youth in the western world) are in not ONLY Assyriansim, but Arabism.

As people from the Arab world we must work hard to respect our Arab brothers and ESPECIALLY sisters to find a sense of common ground and unity amongst not only the Arab world, but the whole world.....

All lost me now? Sorry if I am rambling, but New Years has a been a LOOOOOOONG night (still awake), and yet one of the closest to my soul, because I shared it with my REAL brothers, who have accepted me as an Australian born Christian with a Middle Easternm background....a sense of community I have not even felt with my Assyrian/ Suryoyo/ Chaldean "family".....

The time has come for a deeper sense of reverence.

In this New Year, please discard all of your hesitations and deepest fears. No more SECRETS amongst Assyrians.....

Love ALL humanity as equally as you do your own self.

But most importantly, STOP this hatred breeding and cyclical revenge (did anyone out there ever read my recommendation for "The Warrior's Honour" by Michael Ignatieff?) not be afraid, it is non-fiction....

Anyways, just stay to true to your hearts people,

Love Always,



PS. MAKE this a Happy New Year!
