Proponent	Peter Jasim <[email protected]>  This is a formal request for discussion on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup, soc.culture.assyrian.  This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup Creation. This RFD is being posted to the following relevant newsgroups:          soc.culture.lebanon         soc.culture.israel         soc.culture.palestine         soc.culture.arabic         soc.culture.jordan  Discussion on the RFD will take place in news.groups.                                    Charter                                  -------  The soc.culture.assyrian newsgroup will serve the Assyrian community worldwide, and will be open for discussion to all Assyrians and interested parties. Discussions will include topics on Assyrian history, culture, politics, religion, education and social activities. Because Assyrians are scattered all over the world, special emphasis will be placed on the Assyrian diaspora.  Other topics of discussion will include:          - Assyrian history, from the empire to modern times         - Assyrian archaeology (topics related to Assyriology)         - The Assyrian language (ancient, classical, and modern)         - Assyrian Christianity (current issues and history)         - Assyrian music and art         - Assyrian folk dance and cuisine         - Assyrian human and civil rights in Middle East countries         - The latest news from Assyrians around the world         - Assyrian politics in Iraq         - and other topics  The discussions will be held mostly in English, and some transliterated Assyrian.                                   Rationale                                 ---------  soc.culture.assyrian will serve the Assyrian community which is scattered throughout the world. Currently there is no newsgroup that deals with Assyrian affairs. Since Assyrians are a separate national minority within several Middle Eastern (and Western) countries, and are not Arabs, and whose first language is Assyrian, a separate newsgroup is deemed necessary. There are 3.4 million Assyrians in the world, with the largest population (2 million) in Iraq.                                   Archive                                  -------  The content of the postings shall be archived and made researchable via FTP-mail or other such means.                                   Procedure                                 ---------  Please post any response to this message to news.groups. If you use the followup feature on your newsreader this should happen automatically. It is important to understand that all discussions about the merits of this proposal should occur in news.groups.  After a discussion period of 21-31 days, a Call For Votes (CFV) will be posted to news.announce.newgroups -- barring any serious objections. The voting period will last 21-31 days. If the vote passes by a 2/3 majority, and by at least 100 yes votes, then the group will be created.                              Future call for votes                            ---------------------  Please do not post any votes now. This is not a call for votes.  When the CFV is posted, instructions will be given on how to mail your votes to the Usenet Volunteer Votetakes (UVV).
