In a letter written to Turkish Consul General on 14 May 2013, Rev. Fred Nile defends recent NSW Parliament motion that recognizes the genocide of Assyrians, Armenians, and Greeks. Rev. Nile’s letter reads:
Sydney: The Republic of Turkey has sensationally stated that certain Australian legislators are not welcome to take part in Anzac celebrations in Gallipoli, as a consequence for passing a motion recognising the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Genocides.
The NSW Labor Opposition has officially recognised and condemned the genocide of the Assyrian people by the Ottoman Government between 1914 and 1922.
Opposition Leader John Robertson spoke in support of the motion which was moved in State Parliament on Wednesday.
From the moment I set foot in her home, I felt surrounded by a warm ambiance of friendliness and structure.
Nancy Oshana Wehbe was born in the Assyrian village of Tel Tamar of the Khabour region in Syria. Her relocation with her brother to the United States at the tender age of ten helped her push boundaries to become very independent. Similarly, her forward-thinking mentality and positive attitude is in large due her open-minded upbringing by both parents.
Today, Wednesday 8 May 2013, in a historic move, The Hon Barry O’Farrell MP, Premier of NSW, rose in the NSW Parliament, Legislative Assembly (The Lower House) to move a motion calling for the recognition of the Assyrian, Armenian and Greek Genocides. The motion was passed unanimously.
The authors of the book "The History and Geography of Human Genes"1, published in 1994, and the abridged version in 19962, took on the monumental task of analyzing the vast number of research articles written about genetic properties of different human populations. The senior author, Prof. L.L. Cavalli-Sforza, Professor of Genetics at Stanford University, is considered one of the preeminent human population geneticists in the world, a field that he has been working in for over forty years. After eight years of collecting this massive information, the authors spent several more years doing the genetic and statistical analyses using sophisticated computer methods. The objective was nothing less than to define the genetic variations in the entire human population of the world and, from that information, to trace the origin and migration of modern humans to their present locations on the planet (hence the "History and Geography" in the title). As the American Journal of Human Genetics stated, "This book represents a landmark in biology. There is nothing of its kind... where the evolutionary history of a single species possessing a cosmopolitan distribution is distilled from genetic, morphological, and cultural data. It represents an essential historical source for all human biologists ... " And as the New York Times said, "Perhaps more than anyone else in his field, Dr. Cavalli-Sforza ... has been able to make sense of the whisperings of human ancestors that are recorded in the genes of present-day people."
