Assyrians returning to Bakhdida city
« on: January 21, 2017, 07:44:15 AM »
NPU managing outposts/checkpoints, while Assyrians return to their homes in Bakhdida (Qaraqosh)


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.

yes and the most realistic way for that to happen is to monitor sunni muslims and give everybody (except sunnis) a gun, even if it's just a pistol.

"Qaraqosh" reminds me of the Arabic word "Qaraqos" used for coned iced cream. Are the two related?

Qaraqosh is Turkish for "black crow" I think. The town's real is Bakhdida either way.

Black does mean "kara" (Turkish doesn't have Q btw). Crow isn't showing up as "kosh". Though both crow and raven are showing up as "Kara Karga" (black raven/crow). Karga is crow.

Not sure where did they get "Kosh" from...

So the name of that place is "Blackbird".

Imagine Bartella, Karamlesh and Bakhdida grow to the point where they combine and become 1 big city, what should the new city be called?
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.

Akkad.

Just a homage to the ancient capital (archaeologists aren't sure where it exactly was).

Great pictures!

Read today that the Iraqi government has agreed to pay every returning family 1.5 million Iraqi dinar (which is only about $1250 USD) but it is a good start. I would triple that to at least 5 million or even 10 million dinars. Then and only then would it be enough to convince more people to come back and start fresh. This in additional to compensations for any losses their homes and properties.

I have to ask, has a Nineveh Plains government been created yet? They have to create a government if they're serious about making it a region.

Once the meeting at the round-table starts, then talks for Nineveh Plains governance will start.

Wouldn't this be integral to autonomy?

the meeting has to be done soon while they can. Without a form of government, any talk of a province or region is just that, talk.
