Here is John's page on the National Post newspaper website: http://business.financialpost.com/author/jshmuel/

This includes all his articles, which I read on a regular basis, since the paper he works for is one of my favorites (beside the Toronto Sun and others)

leaving a hostile area to survive is not a sense of weakness.

The problem is that we are faced with a whole new set of challenges, such as cultural/linguistic assimilation and absorption in the west.

There's two problems. Stay and risk getting killed or Leave and risk your (grand)children losing their culture and language

for both problems, there's two solutions.

for the 1st problem of staying, Assyrians NEED to establish their own militias with the intention of protecting people, stop thinking about tribal bullsh** and become one.

for the 2nd problem of leaving, Assyrians need to establish a STRONG and independent community that builds community centers and assyrian schools. (hint: think what the jews who weren't living in Palestine did).
