: But, that's a minor point, because it seems you've missed YOUR OWN point here: you asked the question what would happn if there were an Assyrian Arab republic, would our people still be proud of calling themselves Assyrian, despite that most inconvenient word attached to it, you know, A-rab? Re-read my answer..........
+++It makes a differnce I think which country is called Assyria. If Iraq was called Assyria...we'd be dealing with Assyrians being killed through starvation...Saddam would be called an Assyrian Despot and the rest of it. I seriously doubt that the Assyrians of Syria would be "proud" to be known as Syrian...not Syriac (nice try...sneaking a Christian in there)...if Syria was in the cross hairs.
Assyrian churches who resolutely stay away from politics...pasted American flags all over the place when the need arose. Sorry...just don't see the grim determination you do.
