CHALDEAN COMMUNITY POSTINGS





Chaldean Words of Wisdom
In Chaldean catechism class the children were learning the Apostles Creed. Each child had been assigned a sentence to repeat. The first one said, "I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth." The second child said, "I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son."When he had completed his sentence, there was an embarrassing silence. Finally, one child piped up, "Teacher, the boy who believes in the Holy Spirit isn't here."

An Advent Poem

An Advent Poem

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town
there’s no hint of Jesus anywhere to be found.
 
The people were busy with Christmas time chores
like hanging of tinsel and shopping in stores.
 
No songs about mangers, "no crib for a bed."
The songs were of Santa all dressed-up in red.
 
Mom watched Martha Stewart, while dad consumed beer;
both of them hoping to get Christmas cheer.
 
When what from the T.V. glad tidings they hear?
A swinging bright choir, there’s a big sale at Sears.
 
So away to the mall they all flew in a flash...
Buying presents on credit - and others with cash

Raad Yono Calls it a Stick-Up
By Sam Yousif :: 12 Views :: Business & Finance

Chaldean business consultant Raad Yono says Wal-Mart’s alignment with liberal causes is out of threat and fear.  “Wal-Mart has been bullied around by Democrats and forced to give to causes they traditionally would not align with,” says Yono.  The consultant responding after www.CHALDEAN.org reported of Wal-Mart’s contribution to homosexual causes and decision to carry the abortion pill. 

The retailer has always cherished successful values that enrich lives and lay the foundation for success Yono says.  “But the pressure from Democrats has become unbearable as political operatives put the squeeze on Wal-Mart and coerce them into supporting liberal causes that run counter to Wal-Mart’s success.”

 Wal-Mart may be expanding in the People's Republic of China, but here in capitalist America the low-price retailer has become the Democratic Party's favorite pinata. The media like to portray this as a populist uprising against heartless big business. But what they don't bother to disclose is that this entire get-Wal-Mart campaign is a political operation led and funded by organized labor and the Democratic party.

Chaldean Home Improvement Investment the Wise Way
By Sam Yousif :: 6 Views :: Living & Lifestyle

For many Chaldeans the investment in their home is second to none.  The luxurious master bedrooms, marble and slate countertops, elaborately decorated living and dining rooms, and routinely remolded bathrooms and kitchens seem par for the course. 

The long hours and hard-work to eek out a small savings can disappear overnight when the decision to remodel.  Most all remodeling project fail to return your investment in improving your home but some areas fair better than others. 

If the choice to remodel is made out of vanity rather than actual improvement you are guaranteed to lose most all your investment.  However, if the choice is made to genuinely improve the function, feel, and resale of the home you can recoup over 80% of your investment and enjoy the upgrade.  Before you begin, a wise Chaldean homeowner will asking themselves:: "Where's the smartest place to put my money?"

Best Buy a Bad Deal Says Shaya
By Sam Yousif :: 19 Views :: Business & Finance

Michigan, USA – Activist Abeer Shaya sees the writing on the wall.  A law student at University of Michigan and scholar of religious history, Shaya says Christian humiliation is a precursor to Christian persecution.  “In ancient times, Christians were mocked, harassed, belittled, and humiliated.  Kids were taught Christians ate their children and were the cause of natural disasters because they refused to worship many Gods.”

The Chaldean legal and historical scholar adds that Christians were first humiliated and then made to be scapegoats.  “While Christians kept to themselves, their values and virtues made them act in ways that drew attention from Romans.  They acted piously and their virtues and values contrasted with the Roman way of life.  Humiliation and insult is the building of a runway so the plane of persecution can land.”
 
Shaya adds that Christians today are obviously under attack; their holidays are corrupted, stripped, and commercialized into meaninglessness by anti-Christian groups.   As the Christmas season draws near Chaldeans like Shaya are making clear they are steering away of businesses that attempt to dilute or corrupt the Christmas holy day.  

Best Buy has announced they will be using "Happy Holidays" this coming Christmas shopping season, and they will not be using "Merry Christmas."

Fake ‘Catholic Voters Guide’ Created To Mislead Catholics From Church Teachings
By Sam Yousif :: 9 Views :: Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society

American Catholics are stunned that the Democratic Party would stoop so low as to purposely mislead and manipulate Catholics about their faith and sacred teachings.    The fake 'Catholic Voters Guide' Published by Former Aide to John Kerry attempts to recapture the hemorrhaging of Catholic voters rejecting the Democratic Party. 

Chaldean Caucus member and former Democrat Wendy Jaberow, who became a Republican because of these sorts of underhanded and deceitful efforts, feels the Fake Catholic Voters Guide is another example of the shameful values the Democrats have embraced.  “They believe that ‘any means necessary’ is justifiable for them to gain power.  They have sold their souls to the devil.”

Failings Schools Leave Chaldeans With Few Choices
By Sam Yousif :: 8 Views :: Career & Education

Michigan, USA - College-aged Chaldeans are often faced with a difficult dilemma – go on to college or find work to help their parents.  As immigrants many Chaldean parents struggle to find jobs, or are increasingly forced to create a business so that they may have a job.   As such, the children are called into the business to help interpret, keep payroll costs down, and serve as a trusted resource to give the parents a break from the grueling 90 hour work-week.

The dilemma is unfair for a majority of the young Chaldean adults hungry for a college education that leads to a reliable and highly regarded professional life.

By Sam Yousif :: 14 Views :: Career & Education, Law & Order

Michigan, USA - Chaldean Alumni of Troy Athens public high school in Michigan, USA is at risk of identity theft due to a stolen computer hard drive.  The computer hard drive was taken from the district and contained all the necessary information needed to compromise a student’s identity.  Through an investigation, the school learned that students’ transcripts, test scores, addresses, family names,  and Social Security numbers were saved on the stolen drive.

The Troy School District and Superintendent mailed out a letter to former students of the high school who graduated from 1994 to present indicating that former students will be given 14 months of free credit monitoring services. 

Pressure from the grass roots student alumni movement formerly known as the Unhappy Student Organization, renamed to Troy Athens Voice is working to have the 14 month credit monitoring service extended. 

Chaldean students who graduated from the Troy public school system must apply for the free services before December 31, 2006 year.  Chaldean students of Troy can apply online.

Marian High School in Michigan Defends Their Convictions
By Sam Yousif :: 26 Views :: Career & Education, Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society

Michigan, USA - Students, family members, teachers, employees, and alumni of Marian high school are outraged.  The all-girl private Catholic high school has come under attack by homosexual activists.  “The gay people, TV, and newspapers want us to do something wrong and we will not.  They talk too much about sex these people.  This is sick of them.  That is why I don’t want any of my children, nephews, nieces, or anyone I know to go to public school.  They want you to believe that the way you behave is okay if you can make others say it is okay,” says  Enam Bahoura, a Chaldean parent. 

The nationally-acclaimed Catholic high school with a large enrollment of Chaldeans finds themselves under target of the local papers for teaching their religious convictions.  Both the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, owned by Gannett News ran what many in southeast Michigan feel are biased articles to promote the homosexual agenda.

Michigan, USA -- Iraq's U.S. Ambassador Meets With U.S. Chaldean Community Leaders

Iraq's Ambassador to the U.S. is meeting with Chaldeans and other Iraqi-Americans in metro Detroit, urging them to support U.S. efforts in Iraq.

"It's important to persuade the American public and American government not to abandon Iraq at this stage," Ambassador Samir Sumadaie said in an interview Friday at the Westin Hotel in Southfield. "Abandoning it would turn it into a failed state and create a huge amount of terrorism and destruction in Iraq."

Sumadaie, a Sunni Muslim, met with Chaldeans, Iraqi Catholics, at a church in Southfield on Friday, and is expected to meet with Iraqi Shiite Muslims in Dearborn on Saturday.

Merchant of Vino, Ed Jonna Turns into Plum
By Sam Yousif :: 30 Views :: Business & Finance

Michgian, USA - "There's over 100 growers within a two-hour drive from here ... we're talking about Michigan blueberries, peaches, apples and honey," he said. "Whenever we're able to support our local farmers, that's what we're going to do," says Mathew Jonna. 

Rebounding from their sale of the Merchant of Vino, the Jonna family has kept a low profile.  According to Matt Jonna, son of Merchant of Vino owner Ed Jonna and a managing partner in the family business, Whole Foods approached the Jonnas with an offer too good to resist: 1.03 million shares of common stock, valued at an excess of $40 million.

Many in the Chaldean community thought the family would embark on community philanthropy.  “It is well known that great business people find ways to help others.  Many thought the Jonna family would do just that, start scholarships, foundations, community centers, or help remove barriers holding other Chaldeans back,” says Jamal Aboud, financial advisor and banker.  “It seems they are not quite done focusing all their efforts on business.  It will be exciting to see what they come up with next.”
