I am very pleased and impressed to find an Assyrian website of such a high and professional standard. Everyday I find myself feeling more and more proud of Assyrians - and more connected with Assyrians who are achieving so much for themselves and others. Well done and thank you. Warmest regards, Arabella.

Arabella Aida Daniel

A job well done. This is a fine example of the kind of work that we need more of to publicize our nation and people. Always be proud of your glorious past and work hard for a successful future. Always remember that in every movement there is one man/woman with a vision that will create change.

I was in the RAF at Habbaniya. Worked in EPAS at 115MU 1951-1954. Can recall four Assyrian friends: Mr. Wallace, Simon Andrew, William David and Youra who worked with me. I think Youra had a trial with the English football team 'Bristol City'. Do any of my old colleagues remember me?

Jim Allison

It takes an intelligent, artistic and distinguished person to present with such diligence and abundance, such a courageously sensational site. Especially against some blind hearted and feeble minded people. I can clearly see all these wonderful qualities in the mirror of atour.com, and I humbly and respectfully bow down before it.

Nahrin Gabrial
Chicago, Illinois. USA [North America]

Growing up as a child in Chicago, my father who was an Assyrian, and who married my mother (a Polish woman), he never talked much about his life or his heritage or his family background. Its great that through this website, it has helped me learn a little bit more about who I am on my father's side of the family, and get some answers to many questions I had thought about over the years. Again thank you!

Vernon L. Kuenzi

I have always been interested in the underdog in history. Being Polish (i.e. also betrayed by the British), I sympathise with the people of Assyria. I believe that we have both suffered a great deal - ethnic and cultural clensing. I sincerely hope that your cyber community prospers for the future (and one day perhaps attains geographic soverignty). May Yahweh bless you all.

And your site complete my knowledge, very happy, I marry an Assyrian man from mideast. I am aware of what happened under Muslim power. Why don't Europe or States help? I try my best to make your question known. I help some fleeing. Who may help me about Assyrian in Iran and Syria. Wish to hear about latest testimony, evidences in 1997-98 if you may help me. Bravo to your professional team and such persons as Gabriel Rabo from whom I learned a lot through the Net. Thanks.

Yes, web sites like this will echo the voices of the Assyrians as a nation to all, yes we do exist, this is our history, culture and our blessed language, and yes we are still here after 2500 years from the fall of our capital, Nineveh.

Fred Aprim

I am proud to be an Assyrian. I would like to say that how proud I am of those of you who are trying to make the rest of the world know who we are, and what we stand for.

I am not an Assyrian, but I have great respects for a group of people who were the rulers of the world at one time. I enjoy learning about the Assyrian culture, and history, it is one of great honor, pride, hardships, triumphs, and indeed great respect. I admire Assyrians for being the strong people that they are. I am glad that this information is being available on the internet, so that others like myself can learn what a great culture and heritage Assyrians have. Thank you very much to all of those who are making this possible, and I am sure that God will not forget the plight, that Assyrians have endured. Peace be onto all of you.

Regarding: Business and Community Affiliations

I am an Assyrian who is disgusted with how Assyrian websites are making money on behalf of our poor nation.  You should not mix business and national duty that should be done free of charge.  You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Server management, security, bandwidth, administration, and large-scale website development are expensive and time-consuming.

If each Assyrian visitor donated $10 annually to this server project, we would be able to reach our goal of being independently sustainable.  Currently, many academic projects — university, museum, and organizational research information to be posted within the various categories of this website — are on hold due to limited funding that affects our focus during website development.

Who founded the Armenian, Assyrian and Hellenic Genocide News website?

Name not available.
Chicago, Illinois USA [North America]

Editors' Note: The Armenian, Assyrian and Hellenic Genocide News website was founded in August 2000 by Armenian, Assyrian and Greek activists, who were authorized by the silent victims of genocides.

Regarding: Assyrian Holocaust

This website has made a mockery of our genocide.
First of all, it's called genocide, not holocaust. 
Second, it's missing information or is this some sort of conspiracy or amnesia? 
Finally, it doesn't really matter since you don't speak on our behalf.

Name not available.
USA [North America]

Editors' Note:  Please review our three-part explanation below.

Since 2000, the Assyrian Holocaust section of this website continues to be a collective volunteer effort of many Assyrian activists and friends of Assyrians, namely the Armenians and Greeks.

Genocide is defined as the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, religious, political, or ethnic group.  The word, from the Greek genos, meaning “race,” “nation,” or “tribe,” and the Latin cide, meaning “killing,” originated from the tragic events in the Middle East during the end of the Ottoman empire from 1910 to 1933, which called for a legal concept to describe the deliberate destruction of large groups.

Holocaust is defined as the deliberate and systematic destruction by fire of a racial, religious, political, or ethnic group.  The word derives from the Greek holos, meaning “whole” and kaustos, meaning “burnt”.  Long before the Jewish Holocaust of World War II, Turks and Kurds systematically forced Assyrians into wells filled with kerosene oil and burned them to death, including burning the churches where Christian Assyrians had taken refuge.

Information appearing on the website is determined by copyright and reprint rights.  We respect copyright laws and believe in the fair use of copyrighted work for the purposes of news reporting, teaching, scholarship, research and preservation.  Thankfully, the majority of people and organizations forward their information in the form of documents, photographs, audios and videos.

We believe the strict implementation of copyright laws equate to an academic genocide and will ultimately hinder Assyrian nationalism and awareness, by limiting the amount of information on the Internet.

As Assyrian activists, we speak for those who could not speak yesterday, and for those who cannot speak for themselves today.

Regarding:  Assyrian Education | Assyrian Library | Forums

As an Assyrian academic, why should I collaborate, what are the incentives?

Name not available.
USA [North America]

Editors' Note:  Sharing your academic achievement — magnum opus — will foster learning and promote a sense of community, especially needed for a beleaguered Assyrian nation living in the four corners of the diaspora.

Oftentimes, great works are left in dusty drawers and shelves or stored securely within academic offices and websites.  Access to this information is frustratingly tedious, requiring lengthy procedures, applications and logins. 

We believe the strict implementation of copyright laws equates to an academic genocide and will ultimately hinder Assyrian nationalism and awareness, by limiting the amount of information on the Internet.

We respect copyright laws and believe in the fair use of copyrighted work for the purposes of news reporting, teaching, scholarship, research and preservation.

We recommend making a complete digital EPUB and PDF document of your book, thesis, report, article or essay and distribute them freely on the Internet.  Include purchase information and direct URL links to your material at various online bookstores within your documents.  Since a digital document does not have the benefits of a printed book, this free global distribution solution has been proven to actually increase sales.

Open and share, perhaps you may become a mentor to a reader.

Regarding: Assyrian Activism | Forums

I'm an Assyrian, I don't believe in the need to financially support nor collaborate with this website. Afterall, I get my information on Assyrians from Wikipedia, Facebook, and other free websites.
