: never said they were... after all, I AM an ashurist...
: although having said that, most of our ancestors WERE Christian for the last couple of millenia...
++++No they weren't...the majority of them were Muslims...you just can't sustain the argument that all the Muslims of Iraq are Arabs from Arabia. And it doesn't change your ethnicity if you change religions, neither to Christianity nor to Islam. And what you call yourself and what you talk about and what you cry over is nowhere near as important as what you do.
+++If Christian Assyrians were sending bombs and starvation to BetNahrain...if they were supporting Bush and asking him to attack BetNahrain sooner and harder...if they were helping spread hatred for Islam and acting as if the people of Iraq deserve what they are about to get...you could hardly call their ACTION "Assyrian".
+++If the Muslims of Iraq call themselves German Pagans but they protect and preserve and care for the treasures of Ashur, especially when they promote them AS Assyrian...well, what these people DO is what counts.
+++Words mean nothing, less than nothing. And people who base their "love" and "devotion" and "identity" on words alone...don't know what they're talking about.
: oops, that's the Christian in me coming out again...
+++ Explains everything...Tells us which end it came out from.
