: Is it possible, after having carried away in several conquests, hundreds of thousands of Hebrews...that we have some of that blood running through our veins?
+++ Those who have "carried away" Hebrews are dead. The genuine Assyrian "hardcore" is dead.
+++ Some fugitives (mainly Arameans and Hurrians and Mitannis and mercenaries of all sorts assimilated by the Assyrian class) were hanging around on the mountains and were later - as they were already earlier much diluted ethnically: Real Assyrians????
+++ My condolences.
+++ And then: You have no prove whatsoever that you are their descendants.
Don't worry: You chances are better and pretty sure that you're descendants of the people subjugated by the ancient Assyrians.
Now you want to be like your former oppressors?
Tells of a slavish mind.
: Or does it matter really, since that was originally Assyrian blood, anyway?
+++ You WANT it so much, don't you?
Will reality really twist itself to make you happy? I fear, not.
+++ So, fraternicide.
Sounds good and at least this one COULD be a plausible reason for your being Assyrians - as still today there is ample proof for such internecine tendencies among Assyrians and Chaldeans and Syriacs and Arameans and ....
+++ But on the other hand:
Except for your words and wishes and bitter decidedness and historical Disneyan rewriting of history there isn't much too it - at least no facts, no evidence, no consistence with historical developments and motives - only a little pitiful nationalistic fantasy story.
Tell that to Arabs or Turks.
