I always have thought and said that the Kurds were assimilated (linguistically and religiously) Semitic people of their area (Assyrians call it Assyria, the Kurds call it Kurdistan). Now, there is scientific data supporting this. People at AINA are advocating the deportation of the Kurds and establishment of Assyria. A good comparison would be the case of Ireland: this would be like the 3% Irish who actually speak Irish wanting to deport the 97% who have been assimilated and speak English. I do realize that the religion of the Kurds and Assyrians are not the same, but we all agree that religion is a secondary factor.
I just hope that people in AINA come to their senses and start finding ways to co-exist with their Kurdish neighbors (assimilated brothers and sisters?). But somehow I think that would not be the case, I just picture them in their eighties, when they are toothless and on wheelchairs, shouting “we have to deport the 75 million (by that time) Kurds and reclaim Assyria”
