I noticed that in this case, peter was especially annoyed at "Vilbert" for the post. His responses were one-liners, like "So, what does that have to do with anything."
It seems that this discussion of Assyrian Muslims really does get to him. If you actually visit the page, you will note that the Assyrian Muslim flag was taken from a book:
Jaume Ollé, 26 December 1999
The book: Nations Without States: A Historical Dictionary of Contemporary National Movements. by James Minahan (1996, Greenwood Press) covers Assyria on pages 247-248. It says:
'A small minority of the Assyrians, around 1%, has converted to Islam, but remains Assyrian in culture and language...The flag of the Muslim Assyrian minority is a vertical tricolor of violet, yellow and green, bearing a white crescent moon and five-pointed star on the upper hoist."

Where did he get this information? Do these people exist, and if so, where?
