: Oh, by "Christian persecution" I'm referring strictly to the Turkish politically motivated religious persecution of Assyrians, Armenians, & Pontic Greeks that occurred in the early 1900's... not to any other "persecutions" Peter et al. would probably want to include.

+++ I'd suggest a full historical portray with nothing left out.
E.g. focussing on the Turks but leaving out the Kurds would not be correct.
On the other hand I find it absurd to include the "Sacking of Niniveh":
That's a clear fact of exploiting the feelings of genocide victims and of manipulating them as a collective malleable for ideological or simple personal power political purposes.

+++ What's generally lacking on part of Peter (Basoo ?) and his ideological paratroopers are clear concepts and definitions. Instead one finds a sprawling & enforced national mythology to serve party political ends.
That has alienated already many people from standing by Assyrians.
