A. Yelda's logic:
" [...] Mr. Albert Yelda, the representative of the Assyrian movement, followed with an excellent speech in English. "We the Assyrians are no longer minority. We with our Moslem brethren are the majority while the criminals of Saddam's dictatorship are the only minority." he said. [...] "
Then there is no need anymore to struggle for such pesky things like "minority rights", is it?
Which explains the lack of any pro-active intellectual Assyrian action for drafting an Iraqi and/or Assyrian constitution, or of at least a concerted approach to formulate Assyrian minority rights.
Or are there any sign of such a life ? - Behind closed doors, of course, where democracy, public education and opinion forming dies and rottens away.
