What city would be a good capital contender, or at least a central hub for economics, entertainment, education, science, etc?

Al Qosh? Zakho? Telesqope? Maybe even Mosul (after it's fully ridden from ISIS)?

Telesqope should be the capital, not because it is something special with that town, but because it is more logical and realistic to be a capital. Spimply, Zakho(5% Assyrian population) or Mosul/nineveh with 5-6%? ; are relatively too few to make it happen.

Tel Esqop is controlled by Peshmerga and Nineveh Plain FORCES, (not Units) though

Bakhdida or Alqosh. It's debatable.
https://ninevehplaindefensefund.org/support-now/ - Support the Assyrian NPU

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.

 Telsqope was retaken from ISIS by Peshmerga, NPF AND NPU.

Many of the Peshmerga are local Assyrians such as NPF and Dwekh Nawsha. In addition, we have NPU there. No matter which side those soliders belonges to, in the end of the day they are Assyrian and that is important that we control our own towns.

I'm going with Telescope too.

Mosul, rename it Nineveh.

Assyrians are smart, strong and beautiful, right? Why not just to try to take your own ancient capital Nineveh back?

But it is in our hands. Our flag is flying on the highest peak of our beloved mountain.


Ezdi PKK are actually in full control of our region. Everything else is cosmetic and for the show. When needed our brothers from Rojava will come any time to help their brothers.

We are too outnumbered. That's like self-explanatory.
