What I mean is that Aramaic was a language spoken by Jesus and his disciples. And I never knew that Jesus and his disciples were from Mesopotamia...

Assyrians are from Mesopotamia. Assyria is in Mesopotamia. And Mesopotamia is a region. That's like saying "why should we be called Italians when we can be called Europeans".

Aramaic was spoken in Mesopotamia nearly a thousand years before Jesus existed, by Assyrians, Arameans (who settled there) and Babylonians. At around 900BC, it became a lingua franca in the region. That's why people all the way in Galilee spoke it over Hebrew since it was the common language.

Not to mention the fact that Persia made Aramaic the official language.

Aramaic was a native language of Arameans. Arameans were NOT native to the Mesopotamia!!! Am I telling lies?

I do agree with you that of all modern people in the world, modern day Assyrians are actually closest people to the ancient people of the 'Lower' Mesopotamia

Which is why Assyrians have their own major dialect of Aramaic, called Eastern Aramaic, that was adopted by the ancient Assyrians and has a very large influence of Akkadian to it.
