Here are the Top 10 Assyrian Events/Persons for 2011
« on: January 01, 2012, 03:37:01 PM »
Top 10 Assyrian Events/Person of the year 2011!



-How we came up with the list: It is based on various things and criteria, including people's nominations, amount of discussions and viewership it generated, buzz on social networks, and last but not least, how much it was debated and talked about in person. We may have missed or forgotten to include some other important ones, and if we did, please don't hesitate to include them.







1-The attacks on Assyrians and their properties in the Northern Kurdish region of Iraq

2-The continuing efforts to unite Assyrian political movements and parties under one voice (started after the horrific 'Lady of Salvation' church massacre in 2010)

3-The passing of the great Assyriologist and archaeologist Donny George

4-Appointment of an Assyrian (Sargon Lazar, Ministry of Environment) as the first Assyrian minister in the new Iraqi government

5-The continuing threats, attacks, intimidation against Assyrians in Iraq and the resulting escape out of the country

6-The completion of the Assyrian Dictionary Project

7-The tragic and shocking death of 3 Assyrian youth at the Yosemite Park falls

8-Assyrian activist, Michael Youash, and his continuing and relentless effort to get more funding and support for Assyrians and the formation of an Assyrian 'Nineveh Plain' province, all part of his role at the ISDP.

9-Assyrian soccer player 'Leena Khamis', playing for Australia, becomes the first Assyrian female player to make it to the world cup.

10-Launch of a new Assyrian Satellite TV Channel 'Assyrian National Broadcasting

Is there a place to buy the Assyrian Dictionary or is it just online? I think I saw that somewhere.

It is a massive project, not sure if you can buy it in a physical form really.

You can, but it'd be ridiculously expensive. :)

You know what, you make a very good point, and I feel bad for having forgotten to include them.

And you know what, I just realized that George Homeh actually passed away in 2010, not 2011, so I can remove his entry from the list and replace it with the tragic death of these 3 Assyrian youth at the falls.

Good call Shekwanta, keep it up!
