These historical musings are quite extraordinary. I had no idea that people spent their lives writing books in the most biased and obviously one-sided way that this one is written.

I would like to impart to you a quote from "The British Betrayal of the Assyrians" by Yusuf Malik. (First published in 1935)

"To make Assyria a modern State, two methods were invoked by Tiglath-Pileser. These methods had been used by his predecessors, but on a smaller scale. The Eqyptian, Babylonian, and Hittite Empires had conquered many people, but no attempts were made to reduce the subject-people into a centralized State. The conquered territories remained vassal States which merely recognized the suzerainty of their overlords and paid them an annual tribute. The Assyrians departed from this in two ways: (a) they detached the conquered people from their old loyalties - religious, traditional, racial, and territorial, but a well calculated, but reprehensible, system of deportation. The best example was the captivity of the Ten Tribes of Israel."

Page 4-5

I trust I've made my point clear.
