ASHURISM

THE ASHURIAN NATIONAL IDEOLOGY


To those who are dealing with the Ashurian cause it's not so easy to set their calculations based on a superficial glance to what is available on the ground. A deep and longsighted view to our history to understand the cause through the Ashurian National Doctrine may only observes the looseness that leads to an endless tunnel.



The Ashurian National Doctrine

It means the absolute believing in Ashurism.The faith in the Ashurian national Doctrine had approved our real national values for thousands years as a successful doctrine for our daily life transactions.

The national faith in our case is on top of our priorities, and through the faith, our priorities organically are linked to form our national values.

The national faith should direct Ashurians to believe in their nation as one people of one name.
Solely, through that understanding we could liberate and protect ourselves of being victims to other political ideologies. Ashurism gives us the power to understand ourselves to set our clear direct national-political targets.

Unfortunately, Ashurians never had a written Ashurian National Ideology to be accepted as their national doctrine in this modern age. What are available are political ideas infected by other ideologies.

Our National ideology should be written based on clear national targets represent the will of our nation. As long as the nation is breathing,such will keeps our nation never stop struggling and challenging.

Ashurians due to several reasons became tools to serve others, and through that they unfortunately contributed their total efforts to serve other ideologies, which used them against their nation or draged them at least to ignore their nation. Is that because our struggling resulted to nothing? Is that because we grown up in families they never declare their Ashurianity due to what their "church" taught them? Or because no guidelines available to set an Ashurian national education to direct our people to know their national identity and to fight for!! Or the combination of all above reasons also applied!

It's so sad to know that many Ashurian sects insist to appear as separated "religious groups" not willing to gather as one nation. Such portray will deform and complicate our true political issues.The national identity certainly reserved our political Rights as long as we are live. But changing our identity will certainly weaken our claim for political existence.

We the Ashurians in need and must set our faith only towards Ashurism, and When we accomplish such step, keeping the faith, nothing shall prevent us from retrieving our political rights.

Unfortunately, we can't centralize our ideas to form one Ashurian leadership, or at least to find one unified front to gather our efforts against our enemies. I hope one day our people shall respect their nation and consider it as a national responsibility.

After converting to Christianity, our first priority became Christian faith, thats why we defend our churches more than defending our Ashurism and our nation. Unfortunately the Christian faith apart our n/a/t/i/o/n/ and that is very noticeable by having different churches misleading our people psychologically to concentrate on church Rites more than their national doctrine, that's how our churches and religion became as tools to shutdown Ashurism!! And due to faith in God is an ancient holy entity in our life, our people use to accept any word comes from our "priests" and that's related to the type of our historical leadership which was in shape of "priest".

Some "anti-Ashurism" and "anti-Christianity" took the chance against the church by misleading the people, coloring the church to appear in shape of "enemy" such blame against the church created by those whom are exposed to communist ideology whom never cared about Ashurism and religion as an important factors in our life.

We the Ashurians are the first people on this earth who believed in GOD and had spread his name in the ancient world. Such belief is in our blood, we can't ignore it, it is part of our Ashurian identity, Ashurism also means in GOD we trust and believe, and that was before Christianity for thousands years.

Either due to ignorance or for hidden purposes to serve other political ideologies which contradict with our national ideology, those "anti-Ashurism" gave wrong idea about the national act, they have punched the nationalism to be wrongfully related to our churches, I trust that not all churches serves only word of GOD!! But such comparison confused our people to accept either Ashurism or "religious rites"!! And because mistake always produces mistake, our people have chosen their "religious rites" under church title, which now for "some" of them accumulate wrong understanding to recognize themselves as a new nation! That's considered the big loss in term of national calculations.

The Ashurian National Ideology is such high quality of nationalistic doctrine needs high-qualified nationalistic individuals to lead our people at least to centralize their attraction and beliefs towards Ashurism rather than attracted to be "religious groups" or serve other ideologies.


The negative impact of Christianity on Ashurism

Is it a coincidence that Islam religion works for Arab nation, while Christianity works only against Ashurism!!

For how long we should just watch Christianity apart our nation, discounting our national values from our lives, while Islam religion gathering Arabs nationally!! Is it our Christian faith meant to destroy our national values? Our churches made it, and became TOOLS to shutdown Ashurism!!

There is something wrong; Ashurians do not realize that something in Christianity is designed to shutdown Ashurism.

We should oriented our belief in Christianity this way: NO CHRISTIANITY WITHOUT ASHURISM" to prevent our people considering Christianity more important than Ashurism.

We born as Ashurians, we had known GOD before Christianity, historically we had taught this world spiritually about GOD and the creation before thousands years.

Yes, all spiritual acts in Ashurism had been quoted to Christianity!! It's an act of ignorance if we ignore the true God in Ashurism and to praise the same God in Christianity!! Is there any logical explanation to that?? Unless it's a trial to drag the truth from Ashurism and had spread under different topic (Christianity)!!

He is the same GOD; we had known him before any other creature on this Earth. What changed in this GOD after we converted to Christianity!

Christianity is the same conception of Ashurism, or it's the Ashurism itself but with those little changes which designed to work against Ashurism.


I TRUST IN GOD AS AN ASHURIAN, I BELIEVE IN GOD AS MY ANCESTORS BEFORE CHRISTIANITY HAD KNOWN AND WORSHIPPED HIM FOR THOUSANDS YEARS AND THAT IS MY POWER IN MY FAITH. REMEMBER ALWAYS ASHURISM ALSO BELIEVES IN GOD. IT IS NOT ONLY NATIONAL IDENTITY BUT IT'S BOTH.

I just want to emphasize that we had our religion; it was part of our Ashurism, that's why GOD called us"...and Assyria the work of my hands" Ishaia 19:25.

GOD knows us as his worshippers and as Ashurian followers to him, that's how our name came from his name (God Ashur/Ashuraya (Aha Shuraya/A-Shuraya/Ashuraya) which means "The beginning", God is the beginning, the beginning of creation. This concept was quoted to Christianity in the bible. Read John 1:1 " In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God.

He THE MIGHTY GOD did not send Jesus to lecture his worshippers. Jesus came to destroy paganism of other nations,to achieve that Jesus should depend on God followers and worshippers on Earth. Such mission can not be done only by ghosts!!Such mission needed "real factors" to reach those other pagans. The "real factors" were people/humen That's why Jesus sticked to The God believers those who believed without seeing him The Ashurians to achieve his mission. Jesus said, " The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgement with this generation, and shall condemn it..." Matthew 12:41. So, according to what Jesus said we easily could conclude that ancient Ashurians were not pagans.

Please read carefully and understand that ancient Ashurians hadn't changed their faith in GOD due to Jesus appearance. Such holy appearance should be considered as a continuity to what ancient Ashurians had believed in.We should analyze the mechanism of above details as following:-
How ancient Ashurians believed in Jesus appearance? Was there any sign previously mentioned in their religious heritage referring to such appearance??

Indeed ancient Ashurians from their own religious heritage had the knowledge of the "Star of East" as a sign of Jesus birth, and that was mentioned in the Bible.

Read Matthew 2:1-2" Now when Jesus was born in Beth-le-hem of Ju-dae-a in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. Saying, where is he that is born king of the( Jews??)? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him".

How did those wise men had known about such sign as they were from East? Who else know about prophets and Mighty God in the East? the Persians were pagans worshipping Fire!! Only Ashurians were worshipping God. That's how our real spiritual heritage as God worshippers were quoted in a different way to bible.

The point is for some "unknown?" reasons Ashurism had been changed to Christianity and it was left to The Time to occupy the place of Ashurism.

Why then Ashurians can't accept Islam?? It fulfills the same purpose of calling for GOD? Because nothing about Mohammad mentioned in our ancient religious heritage, but Jesus was known for ancient Ashurians.
Pay attention to this paragraph quoted from the bible:

Daniel 3:25 " He answered and said, Lo,I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and THE FORM OF THE FOURTH IS LIKE THE SON OF GOD.

above mentioned are words said and spoken by our Assyrian king Nebuchadnezzar.I don't want to go further in details about why he said it, so just to shorten the topic: read about the fourth person his form is like the son of God!!!!

Is it there any doubts that our ancestors where indeed worshipping God, and not only that, but also they had known Jesus in their times. We have to understand that our jesus and his story with his appearance was not stated correctly as it is mentioned solely he had appeared to jews by calling him (king of Jews)?!!.
Here I don't claim Jesus is only for Assyrians. But when Jews claiming that, then we should expose those biblical evidences to set the truth as it should be.

if our king Nebuchadnezzar had recognized the son of God from his form, that's hadn't happened at first time, there should be roots go further more deep to ancestors of Nebuchadnezzar himself, otherwise how the king recognized the son of God from his form??!!Logically someone had seen Jesus before the king and refered to his form untill Nebochadnezzar recognized him.


Unfortunately, the killing point that had apart our nation is the Christianity title.
Ashurism was sole method, did not encourage our people for multi-methods in their faith to GOD. If that was continued the future of the Ashurian nation wont be the same as today.



THE POLITICAL GAME OF OTHER IDEOLOGIES


We can easily identify the contradictions in other political ideologies who took place to lead Ashurians using the term of national struggle as a cover to serve their benefits which representing their first priority. We understand that interests are the natural language in politics. Based on that, those ideologies oriented their efforts to such goals that serve their political interests, nothing of that Ashurianity they do care about. We are the lucky card to be used now days, once the card is expired, they'll sell us at the first available chance.

The National Ideology rarely considered wrong. If the national targets were not properly accomplished that's mean the political plan was wrong! Ashurians must direct their attention to identify what is beyond all of those Ashurian political parties to solve their puzzle. Why they made the cause too complicated? Having several parties should result high-quality act in our national struggle, which leads to more pressure against the Iraqi government and alike. What is available are only Ashurian faces but in fact they serve the benefits of other political ideologies, and that's why is so clear that all of them declared Ashurism, but nothing of Ashurism is gathering them.

The current preparations in the National-Political exercise should ensure an integral solution instantly due to the insupportable situation of the Ashurians. Such situation cannot provide assistance to raise integral solution unless Ashurians deal honestly with their Ashurianity as a national responsibility. Such responsibility should be passed through national achievements as a message to our next generations. Such achievements shall never accomplished unless to follow the Ashurian National Ideology standards.
