What also amazed me about his book is where he mentions going through thousands of pages containing names and there wasn't even one Assyrian one among them. Just a bunch of Jewish names and other weird names but no Assyrian names. There were even many Arabic names among them, which makes sense as Muslims became more in Mesopotamia but no Assyrian names among thousands of pages containing names of these Syriac Christians. That is strange for a people who always "knew" they were Assyrian and were proud. If we accept the common lie that the "A" became lost for all those centuries, one has to still wonder how they also forgot to give their kids names like Ashur, Sargon, Sencharib, Shelmanasser etc.
