Really....if you stand way back and take a look at us...it's impossible to believe we're Assyrian anythings. I mean SOMETHING of those ancients should have come through!
Look at the Jews...in Moshe Dayan or Begin or Sharon even, there are faint recollections of King David...another brigand and extortionist.
Who reminds us of Ashurbanipal...or Tiglath Pilessar...who, Nimrod...Alphonse...the Ghassbag??? Jackie comes closest and ain't that about all we needed.
It seems no Assyrian ever grew up in an intellectual household...an educated one...and I don't mean doctors and engineers. The more fervent and patriotic the Assyrian ,it seems, the more ignorant and backward.
And it says even less about the ones who are sensible and educated and tactful and circumspect and polite...that they are such friggin cowards we never hear from them!
All in all it's a puzzlement...
