Last time that I saw Fred Parhad right after the 9/11 tragedy in the evening of the debate with Ross(The Los Angeles Valley College teacher) claims about our heritage only a handful of Assyrians from Southern California showed up. Even those that showed up were so disorganized that we kept asking about our past heritage and not the present state of our people. Fred wasn't defending his heritage, he defended our heritage and what a job he did.However, only a handful of people showed up. To me that was a taste of will!
Let us not forget that our communities are in a dismal state of stagnation and their desperate for anything new.
The only possible solution to safe guard and minimize our people demise is to call up all those intellectuals and think tanksers to gather and introudce a blue print to overhaul our communities dismal state. And for that it requires to have hard working, talented, educated, caring, loving individuals.
: "Mr. Nimrod has a tendency to personalize the role of the Assyrian Universal Alliance through his own goals and vision. For the past five years the objectives of this important political organization have evolved around his core personality which over time emphasize and reinforce his sense of ownership of the organization. Indeed he has succeeded to muffle the voices of other members of the Executive Board to the extend that no other Board member is ever consulted on decisions requiring the advise of the elected officials of the AUA. Needless to say, Mr. Nimrod does not enjoy the full confidence of his own organization's Executive Board.
: Mr. Nirmod has created a rigid and inflexible environment where no alternative or opposing view can be expressed and no new blood infused into a decaying political machinery. In recent years he has become a monstrously self-aggrandizing leader of a weakened organization. He is called "Senator" wherever he goes, is treated with great deference and is given the best of everything. Stressing unity, making clever compromises, ensuring the continued support of those indebted to him (i.e. Mr. Homer Ashurian in Chicago) or those he could trust (i.e. Mr. Carlo Ganjeh in San Jose) have been his stock-in-trade since he assumed the leadership of the AUA six years ago."
