ASSYRIANS FIRST, SAYS RESEARCHER PROFESSOR FRED TAMIMI

No nation, ancient or modern, can trace its antiquity farther into the past, than that of Assyria. Her recorded history can easily be read upon her tablets millennia before Christ, and her language to that of Adam and Eve. Yes, indeed, to the language of pre-deluge civilization. A language that continued to be used by Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammed and even Zoroaster. The only language with which we can trace, with great precision, the records of ancient civilizations, and the great world empires. For it was not only the language of the great Assyrian World Empire, but it continued to be used by the succeeding empires. Ancient Egypt used it, Old Media and Persia made use of it, even Greece and Rome were civilized through the medium of the Assyrian alphabet and language. No language on earth can claim such a long and continuous duration. It is the only language with which we can translate the old tablets, as well as the great religious works, and to understand their real and true meaning.
150 years ago few realized that there ever was such a nation as Assyria. With the exception of Biblical records, there was no trace of the mighty race of Assyrians. The world has changed since the days of Assyrian world domination. Civilisations have gone backward, the succeeding world powers did not make an effort to keep their past records as did the Assyrians, and the new-comer archaeologist, when unearthing the Assyrian tablets and libraries, was puzzled how to pronounce the ancient word, how to translate its real meaning. Rassam, Layard, botta, Place, Smith, and even Rawlinson, all thought that the nation of Assyria was dead, and with it, its ancient language. What an historical blunder! How could a nation, which ruled and lived for millennia perish from the surface of the earth? They all failed, and fell short in this respect, while excavating under the ruins of Assyria they never realized the language of the Assyrians was still in use on the surface. Instead of comparing the language Hebrew, a language that did not exist, for there is no such language of Hebrew. It is but a very poor dialect of an Assyrian dialect, called Aramaic.
Unable to find their answer through Hebrew, the translators made use of the Greek language. The Greek historian, Herodotus, appeared on the pages of history a century after the fall of Nineveh, and whatever he wrote, therefore, is but distorted history of Assyria, and because of very poor pronunciation, the Greeks have certainly muddled the true pronunciation of the Assyrian words, and their meanings completely changed. There is no limit to Assyrian words used by the Greeks, since they did not have them in their own language. It was no wonder, because the new-comer Greeks learned the arts of civilization from Assyrians, for the art of writing was perfected in Assyria 2,000 years before they taught it to the new-comer Greeks.
Unable to find his answer through he use of the Hebrew and the Greek languages, the new archaeologist and historian relied upon their own guessing, and it is here they made a real mess of the ancient history. Errors have piled upon errors, mistakes upon mistakes, and in the translation of the scriptures havoc has been played. The so-called new Bible Versions have indeed distorted scriptural truth, to such an extent that the Bible of the Christians is quite different today than when it was written in the old Assyrian language. The Bible cannot even prove itself without the help of Assyrian record and background.
It seems the whole of the ancient history must be rewritten, therefore, and translated not from any other language, but from the Assyrian, and the Assyrian language alone, and by an Assyrian who knows the real language. For the Assyrians not only kept a systematic record of their past, but also the records of almost all the nation so the Middle East can be found on the Assyrian records and tablets.
For instance, in the real and authentic history of Assyria, there was no such nation as Babylonia, for Babylon was a mere city and district of Assyria. Neither was there ever a nation of Chaldeans. Akkadians are but mere Farmers of central Assyria, for the name is not AKKAD but AKKAR, meaning Farmer. The Amorites were not different than the Assyrians; they were merely mountain Assyrians, for the word AMA-RAYI means Shepherd People. The Elamites were simply eastern Assyrians. The name in Assyrian is derived from EL-AM; that is, People of God. The Arameans cannot be separated from the Assyrians. They were but a tribe of the Assyrians who lived upon a high plateau with plenty of water like Urmia. These names simply mean Land of Water.
Western Assyrians, both the Jews and the Arabs were called by the Assyrians, The ARABAYI, from the word ARAB, which means WEST, and ARABA literally means Western. Indeed, the word Europe is derived from ARABA, which the new-comer Greeks perverted into OROPA. At times, these Western Assyrians were also called HEBREWS, a name applied to both the ARABS and the JEWS, and to all those Assyrians who crossed the great Assyrian river, Euphrates, and migrated westward. The word Hebrew is derived from the original Assyrian verb EBER, that is To cross. There was no limit to the number of clans and tribes who moved out of Assyria, and each one calling himself by a certain name. In order to distinguish his clan from the Arabs and the Hebrews, Jacob called his tribe BNAI ISRAEL, which means the Children of SAR-EEL, that is, Prince of God.
The sea-faring Assyrian colonists, the purple Dressed Merchants of ATUR called Sidunnu, the fishermen whom the Greeks called Phoenicians, from the color of their dress, were no different than the Assyrians of Babylon. Neither the Etruscans, who colonized Italy and civilized the Latins by teaching them the arts of shipbuilding, lumber industry, navigation, masonry, and the art of building. Indeed their very name and the name of their settlement in northern Italy was ETRURIA, which means Little Assyria. Finally we cannot separate the Armenian from the Assyrian, for Assyria is the very home of the Armenians, who were planted in URARTU by Assyrian conquerors to pacify the savage northern barbarians, and who unfortunately in time lost their identity and their language and mixed with the conquered wild tribes of Scythians and the Cimmeirans.
The land of Shem the very heartland of Assyria. The historians have certainly perverted the name SAMARRA into a very meaningless one SUMERIA, to such an extent that they cannot tell us who were the Sumerians? Where did they come from? And where did they go to? Simply because there was no such race, neither such a language. For the so-called Sumerian is only the southern dialect of the SAMARRAYI, or the Semites, that is, the real Assyrians.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
