: +++ As to his words:
: You don't seem to have pais full attention to his words if you are still insisting on "maybe's" of his Babylonian/Assyrian origin:
: The essence of his words and spirit is to leave behind any narrow ethnical boundaries for the greater good of all mankind.

xxx What??? I was only responding to your silly question about his heritage.

: Why then your weird appetite for nationalistic feelings and historical concoctions?

xxx Look, buddy (& I use that word lightly here), I have no nationalistic feelings, just feelings of profound sadness at what's happened to Iraq, the former center of the civilized world on the African, Asian, & European continents. I care about ALL Iraqis from ALL religions. Never once have I said that Assyrians were superior to anyone else there. However, that they do have a history of their own - that is something that I would agree about - just as anyone else from any other religious "group" in Iraq has a history worth learning about. I don't want Iraq to be converted into an ethnically pure state. It should continue to be the ethnic melting pot, creative center, & meeting place of numerous cultures that it always was.
