There's a crying need for something like that...but you run into the same problem I did....our own people will shoot it down first.
Our most outspoken "Assyrians" are really Christians. They only allow a Christian take on us...one that has to downplay our past...or else only build it up into a "worthy" sacrifice at the altar of Yahweh. " We wuz great...but mistaken"...it took a Jew carpenter to set us straight.
Have you seen any evidence of a "balanced" view anywhere that people are "proud" to be Assyrian? These people are over...they are irrelevant...and that's why they fight so hard against anyone with a new take on things.
Not now...but maybe in your generation. Keep the flame burning...it will blaze one day...or who cares...where does the thought of ten more Christians added to the world excite anyone? But ten more Assyrians joining the Cause...now that's something like.
