What is your opinion as an Assyrian about the Kurdish referendum happening in September this year . See the poll above
mrzurnaci . I think i did explain the social composition of Nineveh plain in a previous post , but the trend here seem to be that Nineveh plain is full of Assyrian and everyone believes that .mrzurnaci said:exactly, why do Kurds need Nineveh Plains when KRG has enough land to house millions of Kurds in and of itself? If you build up the cities and put condos and apartment complexes (not even high apartments, think 3 story apartment complex) you can house maybe 70-100 million people.

Assyrian are not majority in the plains and they have the lowest number among the minorities in Nineveh plain . Assyrian vote is obvious as seen in this poll, but it is not up to them what happens in Nineveh plain .
I speak from a neutral positon , so i hope you do not get offended .
Bro , Kurds is the least of your problem and kurdish politicians said over and over that they are FOR Assyrian and Chaldean autonomy and self administrations . In fact i believe that kurds wants nothing more than establishing an Assyrian state as a belt to separate them completely from arabs .Nemrud said:What have we ever done to the kurds? The kurds have through history killed us millions of times and we didnt Do anything and when we want autonomy and accept a kurdish country still they wont allow it, they are so mean, at first l thought the Kurdish were nice muslims but how this is going l dont think they are. Everybody deserve their own country, it doesnt matter who you are, what religion you got, all. And they wont let us have a small place like the nineveh plains ffs! Probably they would kill us all if they had opportunity but they cant because other nations are watching, so they play good muslims to get a country of their own. Thats how l see it, even non muslim kurd like that guy nejer something wont allow a autonomy for assyrians, the first people in mesopotamia considering no ancient people from the past lives in todays world, we are the descendants of mesopotamias and we dammit deserve a country or autonomy!
mrzurnaci said:Assyrians make up 40% of the Nineveh Plains... why do you keep downplaying 40%? That's almost half the damn population.
Everybody else in the NP are Yezids, Turkmens, Shabaks, and then (Muslim) Kurds.
What percentage are Kurds in NP? Turkmens? Shabaks? Yezids?
Waht about Yezidis who want the NP to be autonomous? There's Turkmen and Shabaks who support this.
You make it sound like Kurds like yourself are intentionally being an obstacle to something Assyrians deserve for over 2600 years.
Whether you think it's wrong or not, we're gonna get autonomy eventually. we've been trying for 2600 years and we'll try for another 2600 years if necessary.
nejepnerast said:mrzurnaci , I stopped at 40% . where did you get this number ? the entire Assyrian population in iraq ,I mean the whole iraq is by all estimate is 300-400 thousands , so how does that make 40% of NP ?

what I'm stating is just my personal opinion and I just do not see that happening considering the assyrian numbers in NP .

"The Nineveh Plain has the largest population of Christians in Iraq. They make up around 40 percent of the population of the planned new province. They now live in a so-called disputed area: Iraqi territory that Kurdistan claims for its autonomous region."
By Judit Neurink 24/1/2014
40% is not a small number, that's almost half the damn population. 40% of NP is one people.
Here's another comparison. Lebanon is 40% Christian and 60% Muslim but the Muslim population is divided into Shi'a and Sunni (both 30%).
Also, why is it that Kurds get autonomy with the KRG when Iraqi Kurds only make up 26% of the population? From the CIA factbook, Kurds make up 15%-20% of Iraq's total population. -> https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/fields/2075.html#iz
you're showing clear bias here now.
Mr. Tambourine Man said:Kurds support Chaldean organisations because they know they are divisive and harmful to the overall Assyrian cause.
You are lying to yourself or just plain naive if you think Kurds will truly do anything for the betterment of us Assyrians.
