Yes, we just need to stop making 100 political parties every year and have one single party for one single purpose.....Domanic said:Or will we have to do like how the Jews did when they got Israel back or re product like rabbits until we have a bigger population?
Because there wasn't 40 million Kurds or 5 million Assyrians during the 1920s.......Domanic said:Nope, we will never get our country...
Forget about it.....
How come Armenians got there own country?! and how come Kurds didn't when there is 40 million kurds?!
Simple, we aren't united and we STILL aren't united today.Domanic said:True... There was only a million before the genocide.
How come Assyrians didn't ask anyone or Woodrow Wilson for a country?
There are actual Arameans that exist but they definitely do NOT speak Turoyo dialect, they speak the Western Aramaic dialect which we can't understand at all.Domanic said:Aramean*
and yes they do.
Domanic, you need to understand that most Kurds have good rep and good history with Assyrians...Domanic said:
Because Turks and Sunni Arabs don't want us to gain power. Imagine if an Assyrian was placed as Prime Minister instead of Maliki, Iraq would've been on a fast track to stability and modernization....Domanic said:I haven't heard that much news of the Kurds doing anything negative to the Assyrian.
Only The Turks and Sunni Arabs i heard about.
We don't need one party but we need parties that work WITH each other....Domanic said:This is why we need to vote for just one party.
Thomator, the only way to do that is to replace religiousness with nationalism and our people aren't doing that...thomator said:We don't have a chance if we don't have the balls to return from our comfortable lives in the diaspora to our ancestral land. What happened to the +1 million Assyrians that left Iraq since 2003? Image how our situation would have been today if we were 1 million more.
I agree. Our future is in the hands of the new generation. We have to become more active in politics in the diaspora, we have a big diaspora and we should be able to have a bigger influence (in countries like the US, Australia and Sweden).mrzurnaci said:Thomator, the only way to do that is to replace religiousness with nationalism and our people aren't doing that...
The older generations still keep brainwashing us with this "be a good Christian" crap when we should have nationalism and a love for country.
Our diaspora isn't helping that much, there should be more Assyrians back in homeland, not back out of homeland....thomator said:I agree. Our future is in the hands of the new generation.

What's stopping you from moving there?mrzurnaci said:Our diaspora isn't helping that much, there should be more Assyrians back in homeland, not back out of homeland....
What's the point in trying to fight for our homeland when nobody is living on it but Kurds and Arabs who recall Assyrians moving away from the land they're living on now?
We already do you dork, how else did the Assyrian population rise from 300,000+ in 1940s to 4-6m today?assyrian103 said:We need to be like muslims, go and have kids and one day we will be the majority in some areas.
Implying Massoud Barzani won't realize we are piling into a single location...assyrian103 said:What we need is a really large concentrated population. Lets say 3 million in Dohuk governate in Iraq. After we outnumber kurds there, we go for a referendum, and make the international community support us like they did in south sudan and kosovo. Lowkey thats a good idea.
