State Department Allocates $28 Million for Minorities in Iraq
« on: September 22, 2011, 10:27:41 PM »
Got this in an email:

The Assyrian American National Coalition is pleased to report that the State Department announced it is allocating $28 million to benefit ethnoreligious minorities in Iraq. $10 million will be used for the construction of a hospital in the Nineveh Plain. The remaining resources will be used as microfinancing to support increased economic development for ethnoreligious minorities in Iraq.

We have many people to thank for this success. Certainly, without the support of our friends in Congress, this would not be occurring. So, thank you, Senator Mark Kirk, Rep. Anna Eshoo, Rep. Gary Peters, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Rep. Frank Wolf, and Rep. Sander Levin.
... ...
But most importantly, we have you to thank for this success. You have made this funding become available by sending our messages to Congress and President Obama. One of our goals of our current campaign, the Nineveh Plain Province Solution, has been to target the State Department for their failure to respond appropriately to the crisis facing Assyrians in Iraq. While we all know this funding is still not enough, we hope that you take heart in the fact that even though we only have several thousand Assyrian Americans in this country, when thousands of you do contact Congress, you can influence the foreign policy of the United States.

BTW, how many times have we heard this in the last few years, yet nothing materializes?

Oh yeah, forgot that the KRG often ends up stealing it and only giving us a fraction of it. But I don't blame the Kurds, after all they like to steal money just like a lot of people and governments out there. I blame the Americans for not following up to ensure the money ends up in the proper hands.

This money is the cost of only few hectares confiscated by kurds under the supervision of USA.

The hell with their dirty money, we are the indigenous of the so-called "Iraq" and we have a land right, a homeland right, but no cause.

What a Pity beggar nation ..

The only thing you do is to bash this and that.

DO something instead if you already are not.

Elaborate on what? It was a very simple and direct answer.

Critizing with legitimacy is good. But critizing everything does not make sense. This is a good step, embrace it instead.

We are not a nation of beggars, but a nation of bashers. Like a bunch of old ladies who complain about everything. Ashur nothing good or positive comes from you, many people worked hard for this instead of praising their hard work all you do is b1tch and whine stop being a old lady and start something productive for once in your miserable life.
