Our friend from Uzbekistan (Russia) told us that in Moscow there are 12 gangs... one of them entirely Assyrian, and one of the most powerful. It's funny to note that the mobsters all know the meaning of a certain word, which they use as slang... "zooze".
We were talking to Vitali (I think that was his name) and he was telling us that he was a third generation Russian... and that he knew very little of our language. He was reciting words in Sooreth that he knew, and he said something like "Shimmi d'Alaha" and Ninos Aho immediately added "You MUST SAY Allaha'd ASHUR... Shimmi d'Allaha'd ASHUR!!"... and then Ninos gave Vitali a CD of poetry in the Eastern AND Western Dialects and told him that next year he would get a pop quiz on our language.... very funny stuff.
