Mission

To preserve.  To inform.  To inspire.

About AIM

Assyrian Information Management (AIM) is a virtual Internet-based academic repository which created and currently manages atour.com.

Founded on December 10, 1996, during the early years of the Internet, the organization's primary objective is to promote Assyrian history, language and culture.  The freedom provided by editorial discretion and consensus, enables us and fellow activists to present our perspective and related information into accurate and comprehensive articles.

AIM has developed and managed many Internet related projects, click on the Projects section for details.  AIM is also independent of political persuasion, tribal affiliation, religious creed and is financed primarily by partners, sponsors, business affiliations and individual donations.

We are socially responsible and believe in promoting Assyrian businesses and organizations by investing in their goods and services.  We accomplish this by advertising their banners through our highly effective website advertising platform.

We are selective in choosing companies and organizations to list in our advertising system.  This ensures our Internet presence and advertising system are free from distracting marketing clutter that is present throughout the Internet.  We do not accept any outside advertisements, preferring to manage our own affiliation, advertising and search systems.

In addition to balancing between selective business affiliations and conscious capitalism, we freely promote Ad Council public service announcements of significant public issues to create awareness, cultivate understanding and motivate action within our communities.

The server system and its websites consisting of web documents, images, photographs, audio and video files, are blended together to form a unique Internet presence. Due to the nature of this activist model of operations and independence, we depend on the financial donations from people like you.

Activist model summary:

  • Consistent and professional online presence
  • Thousands of Assyrians visit monthly for activism and research
  • Respected by Assyrian individuals, activists and organizations
  • Referenced by major websites and search directories
  • Unique activists' publishing features and information

In order to ensure the continued online presence of this website, we are seeking contributions to help with the costs of server administration, development and management. We hope that we can count on your support to help us maintain our mission to preserve, inform, and inspire. Please donate today.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
