...Iraq had been named "Assyria" instead? Where none of us wants to say we are Iraqi now...would we then say we are Assyrian and proudly mean the same country? Even if it was Muslim? Would Assyrians from Iran, Syria and Turkey rush to say they were Assyrian instead of Turkish, Persian or Syrian? Would we THEN want to desperately identify ourselves with the land, the land we all hate now just because it is called Iraq...even if it was Muslim?
What´s in a name?
