"Manoukian embodies much of the American dream. As a youngster he and his family emigrated from war-torn Beirut to the United States. At age 17 he enlisted in the Air Force, serving for four years before honorable discharge as a sergeant in 1982. One of his major early goals was education. He completed an associate degree while still in uniform and, two years after discharge, was awarded the BA (economics) from California State University at Northridge. He completed the MBA at Cal State, Dominguez Hills, in 2004. He and his wife Zovig have three children."

How can one embody the American dream and not assimilate? How can one be a significant member of the Armenian-American community and not speak out against the idiots today who have destroyed Glendale?

Stupid comment.

And where in the rule book does it state that one needs to assimilate in order to be "American"?

Have blacks assimilated to the point that they are not recognized as blacks anymore?

Why should Armenians be held to a different standard? If Armenians want to keep their identity alive, then idiots like you need to eat that up and shut the hell up.

Delusional fool.
