Do Assyrians,Samaritans ETC.... REALLY still exist ?

Post by Joey_Shag on Tue Jul 11, 2017 5:18 pm

I've noticed lately groups calling themselves Assyrians and other lost Semitic peoples. But honestly I just think that there claiming that so they can have their own identity I.E non Calecdonian Orthodox Christians who claim to be Assyrian to differ themselves,which I think is TOTAL BS

Assyrians are still around yes, but are very few

most Assyrians were Arabized following the Rashidun conquest, but a handful have held onto Assyrian identity though the ages.

But as far as I know, they're the only ones that are still around. Samaritans, Babylonians, etc. have all faded away

At the beginning of the 20th century there were a lot of Assyrians in Iraq, but the genocidal policies of Iraq from its independence in 1930 to today has caused them to decrease greatly. However, in 2004 after the fall of Saddam Hussein, they lost all their rights and are now all either dead, or have fled the country. For example in 2004 there were still millions of them, now only hundreds of thousands. As for the Samaritans, they weren't really an ethnic group, but rather an offshoot of mainstream Judaism, and yes they exist. Mainly in Israel.

The Assyrians do still exist, mostly in Syria, but migration has sent them across the region all the way to Russia. As others have said, genocidal policies in Iraq have drastically reduced the Assyrian population.

Apparently there are 120,000 Assyrians in Sweden. I know there are people who will scream about the Islamization of Sweden, but do they complain about their fellow Christians settling there?

I think the Samaritans are all gone or almost non existent. I know that Assyrians exist, but some people might lie about their heritage.

 But I feel these aren't real "Assyrians" seeing from over the years of mixing,I'm sure they have more ancient Assyrian blood then the average person.I just think there not really Assyrian in the context of the people group from thousands of years ago

Why can't they settle in say, Turkey?
