Better be on good terms together rather than creating a mess. I don't think they are referring to themselves as Arabs since they have a separate flag too so, I think it's more like "Chaldeans in modern Iraq" rather than "We are chaldean arabs of Iraq".

Well, to be fair, the Chaldean flag has a Mesopotamian symbol.

Its not just a Mesopotamian symbol, it is an ancient Assyrian symbol of Ishtar (Ashurnasirpal II) This symbol has nothing to do with Chaldeans.

Even after the fall of Nineveh (612BC) The Assyrians lived under their own law, they had their own autonomy under the different names such as Athura, Adiabene and Asuristan. It lasted till the 7th century AD.

Sennacherib II(2), was an Assyrian Governor or 'king' of northern Asuristan in 372 AD.

I think this is awesome. The more Iraqi Muslims that care about ancient Mesopotamian history, the better.

Why does their religion matter? Especially them being Muslim?

Because it's not been something they've cared about in the past.

Yeah, at least they are acknowledging us.
