Which of the two religions is right?
The Lad, an ancient language spoken by the Assyrians, is one of the three major languages spoken in northern Iraq.
Assyrians were the first indigenous people to colonise the area, which has a long history of occupation and cultural and linguistic history, and their descendants are the majority in the region.
However, the Lad has been largely forgotten in the country’s history, according to a study by the University of Liverpool’s Centre for Ancient Near Eastern Studies.
The study found that Assyrian-speaking areas of northern Iraq are under threat from two distinct threats: from Islamic State, which is battling the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, and by the resurgence of the Kurdish nationalist movement in the area.
“There are two distinct types of threat,” said Professor Stephen Williams, a researcher who has studied the Lad.
“The first is the emergence of the Islamic State [ISIS], and the second is the Kurdish separatist movement that’s taking control of the region,” he said.
“And so these two threats are quite different.”
Williams said there is also a second threat, which he called “unconventional forces” that are fighting against the Assyrian presence in the Kurdish-majority region.
The Assyrian population of northern Mesopotamia was a small minority until the end of the Assyronic empire.
In the early 10th century, the Assyriacs and the Babylonians conquered parts of Syria and Palestine, but the Assyria people were driven out by the Persians in the 12th century.
At the time, the population was mostly of Semitic origin, but after the conquest, the people migrated southwards, eventually settling in what is now the Kurdistan region of northern Iran.
Today, the Kurds, who are an ethnic group that includes the majority of Kurds, control the region, while the Assyries are largely Kurdish.
In a new study, published in the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports, Professor Williams found that the Assyro-speaking region of Iraq is at risk of becoming a “virtual desert” and has been under threat of being wiped out by either Islamic State or Kurdish separatism.
“The area of northern Kurdistan is threatened by Islamic State because of the group’s use of violence and its ideological agenda,” he explained.
“But the main threat comes from Kurdish separatists.
The Kurdish movement, led by the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), has gained momentum since 2015, with a number of Kurdish-language media outlets in Iraq.
Its leaders have been accused of committing atrocities and ethnic cleansing in areas they control.
He said that if the Kurds and the Assyrists had a shared goal, they would fight against the other. “
So it is really important that we focus on what we see as the greater threat,” Williams said.
He said that if the Kurds and the Assyrists had a shared goal, they would fight against the other.
A new generation of Assyrians are also coming to prominence in the Kurdistan-dominated region, and they are now pushing for greater autonomy for the region’s Assyrian majority.
However, this will be challenging for the Assyry people in northern Mesoamerica, where they are also the majority population, according the study.
