RIP Gerard indeed, a great philanthropist and patriot.
If you think the term Oligarchs is a property of Yerevan? Think again.
Gerard v Hrair. A Family Feud, a clash of egos of titanic proportions. Perhaps now the impasse will come to a just resolution,
A sore that has been festering for a long time.

I had not follow the story up close as I have an allergy to the G Word.

Some quotes from above, not in particular order..
Hirair Hovnanian is in effect continuing his personal vendetta at the expense of the Assembly. AAA's other members must realize that this course is rapidly diminishing the organization's relevance. We can only conclude that they also fear that Hovnanian's departure from leadership would leave a gap no one wants to fill.
Today it is not the Turkish government that is holding up this project of national importance. It is Hirair Hovnanian, chairman and chief decision-maker of the Armenian Assembly of America (AAA).
Last January a federal court in Washington ordered that the property designated for the museum revert to the Cafesjian Family Foundation (CFF). CFF has made clear its intention to move ahead with building the museum and memorial with broad community support.
