    In this book, author Hirmis Aboona presents compelling research from numerous primary sources in English, Arabic, and Syriac on the ancient origins, modern struggles, and distinctive culture of the Assyrian tribes living in northern Mesopotamia, from the plains of Nineveh north and east to southeastern Anatolia and the Lake Urmia region.3/5(2).

They remember well the massacres led by Kurds both in the 19th century by Kurdish Leader Badr Khan Beg in the city of Hakkari, Turkey up to the Kurdish involvement in the Assyrian Genocide or Seyfo, and through.

Yet despite this, many insist that Kurdish–Christian relations in the region remain relatively positive with the Kurds and Christians still likely allies in the bloody fight against IS.

Assyria and Kurdistan. Mosul (Assyria) and Kurdistan were never the same regions. In Issawi's book, we read that Mosul was one of the great markets of the Orient.

Most of the fabrics, drugs and Indian wares that come to Basra and Baghdad pass through it, going on to Constantinople or spreading out in the interior of Asia Minor.

Assyrian Christians, who trace their roots to the time of Noah, have historically claimed that region as home. "We haveChristian refugees in neighboring countries. So our position has been very clear to the government.
