An Update on The Mighty Assyrian Eagles *LINK* *PIC*

I really enjoyed this article, and was so happy to know that the Assyrians of Chicago feel more secure and are opting to go to college rather than join gangs. However, I would like to make one correction to this piece. The Assyrians did not form gangs because that's what they were used to back home. The Assyrian Eagles gang was formed in response to the Latin Kings, who bullied the newly arriving Assyrian immigrants to the Chicago area. Nearly thirty years of fighting a brutal war for their own survival, the Assyrian Eagles made peace with the Latin Kings, and both groups decided to accept one another's rights to freedom, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, after realizing people are the same everywhere, and we all have the same basic needs, no matter who we are, no matter where we live. Acceptance and tolerance of one another is the greatest lesson we can possibly learn.
But the greatest lesson the people of Chicago learned was DON'T MESS WITH THE ASSYRIANS. We will defend ourselves by any means necessary and we will survive, no matter what and who stands in our way.
...right! Now they're bragging about having a GANG! And for this sad example they puff themselves up into a formidable "threat"....to whom, exactly? Other gangs?
Maggie's website intro says nothing about engaging in gang warfare on city streets...it says they are dedicate to resurrecting Assyria....unless you think the ancient Assyrians were gangbangers, which is what Christians believe, I can't see how you would brag about having a gang that makes PEACE! And use that as proof that you are doing what you said you would do, which is to bring Assyria back...at what? one gang at a time?
