To know your past, is to know yourself.

The attack continued two days and two nights. The safety of the town depended only upon a small number of Russian guns mounted upon the higher buildings and the walls. During the fighting the Kurds were able to approach to within three miles of the walls. Six large villages were razed and many of the inhabitants who had been unable to flee to Urumiah were massacred.

After the Kurds had been driven off Dr. Yuseff discovered that the bodies of certain Mohammedans who were well known in the town, who had given the Kurds aid in battle, had been hastily buried to conceal the fact that they had taken the part of the enemy while the bodies of the Kurds had been left where they had fallen.

In this engagement Dr. Yuseff first saw the flag of the holy war which the Mohammedans carried before them. It was a red hand on a green field, in which the red was the symbol of the power of might, the green the symbol of the power of faith.

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
