Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Feb 6, 2010 at 08:34

And the fun goes on and on as our dear Turk is either ignorant about his ancestors the Syrians or he knows but in this case this would be a lie so which one is it our dear Turk?

>2/ Syrians are not Assyrians ,

ROTFL can I add this to my vocabulary the "Syrians are not Assryians"! Sohanallah

> they are different races and completely different people .

Oh like I said before is this another cockamamie Turkish theory? Oh spare us this one

For the readers the etymology of the word Syria (Suriya in Arabic) is from Greek Syria (Syroi or Syrians) and these are the Assyrians of Herodotus and the word Assyira means the Assyrian land and today this land would be Iraq, Iran, Syria and Hello: southern Turkey.

And now you can find many them in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe and those are the descendants of those that left their homeland after the massacres inflicted on them by the Turks and the Kurds in places like Diarbekir in 1885-1886 and in 1915

You can also find them in the malabar coast of India

The "Assyrians" call themselves: Syryoye or Suryoye and their language is Syriac and they can be Jacobites or Nestorians and indeed in Arabic the language of our dear Turk Arab masters the word el-syrian (el-suryani singular) is the Arabized Suryoye and their language is al-lugha al-suryaniyya or Syriac

And el-syrian make it to al-sira al-nabawiyya by Ibn Ishaq (hundereds of years before the arrival of those Turkish barbarians that occupied their homeland) where Muhammad is said to have had chats with Bahira al-rahib al-nestori (and I will be nice this time and translate it for you as you do not know any Arabic among other things) Bahira the Syrian and Nestorian Monk

And it is very clear in the sira that Muhammad met Bahira in a place that must have been located in today's Southern Turkey or Northern Syria

This is straight from the sira of your so called prophet

>Assyrians are Mesopotamians ,

ROTFL "Assyrians are Mesopotamians"! Sobhanallah he knows something

>they not Arabs,

You know what suryoye will tell you you?: 3arab? astaghfirullah

> and they speak Arameic

and as your masters the Arabs will say and this is sarcasm: wa minkum nastafeed

> (the language of The Carpenter)

Better to be a carpenter then an Arabian warlord ...

>not Arabic.

: many Suryoye speak Arabic and even for those that do not speak Arabic the two language have very much in common and can understand Arabic

How come you did not know that? ...
