To know your past, is to know yourself.

From this decision, now admitted to be a blunder, date all the troubles in which we, Iraq and the League are involved today. It left the Assyrian country, except a very small area, within the Turkish frontier, and the Turks will not have the Assyrians back; it left over 30,000 Assyrians without homes in Iraq; and left Great Britain and Iraq with an insoluble problem. The story of the Assyrians from now on makes depressing reading, culminating in the present situation. Attempts were made to domicile them in the northern part of Iraq, and a certain number of Assyrians were settled; but, generally speaking, the problem was far from solved when, in 1932, the decision to give up the mandate was taken. Assyrians all along insisted that they would not be safe after the British left, scattered as they were in small parties among the Kurds. When the relinquishment of the mandate became a certainty, they took a desperate step to bring their case to notice.

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

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
