I don't think that the AANF is anywhere close "beyond help." Not to repeat, but this is just a 2 year term. It will be done before you know it. I would be shocked to see any evidence that Aladin Khamis embezzled or aided/abetted embezzling of AANF assets. That's ridiculous and it borders on libel, Jeff. None of the articles in Zinda even came close to making such accusations.
My comparison to Sargon Dadesho is in the facts that back when he set up Bet-Nahrain, he didn't want to become an affiliate of the AANF. I found this tactic rampant in the central valley organizations... Every time someone didn't like what was going on, they chose to start a new group. In the case of the AANF, I think we will live to regret it if Janey is able to succeed in breaking up the federation and start one anew. I don't know Janey at all, I simply oppose any attempt to break up the AANF.
Honestly, I do not know (never even felt) the progress that Atour achieved. You are welcome to post them for our general understanding of the situation.
Furthermore, I found it interesting that (given the sparse facts provided in the various Zinda articles) anyone would oppose helping out Assyrians in Iraq today when that was the exact thing that AANF was founded on (namely creating awareness of and assisting those who suffered the Simele massacre).
I just don't want people to lose sight of the forest for the trees. Let those that want a real change start work FROM THIS MOMENT to effectuate a new wave for the next AANF election from within their affiliates and start connecting with other affiliates. It can't be that hard if it is so badly needed.
>I respectfully disagree. The AANF is corrupt beyond help. The leaders have embezzled money and completely disregarded the by-laws. In this country, that is against the law if you are a 501(c)3 and I hope they will be prosecuted by the IRS. The dissenting organizations in this particular situation are by-and-large the only ones worthwhile in the whole federation anyway.
>I'd never compare Janey to Sargon Dadesho... that's just a low blow.
>I guess our opinions differ so much because I sort of have the inside track on this whole situation and I know just how ass backwards Mr. Khamis has been. Look at the progress made when Atour was president, and look how it can all be undone by a typical tyrant leader of ours... just follow the money trails.
>Sometimes IRS audits can be a good thing.
