guys, its because the western mainstream archeological community says we are extinct. they say modern assyrians developed in the 1st century a.d. and we have nothing to do with ancient assyrians. I know that's not true, but that is their belief and so any western media will follow what they say about that issue. its clear that belief is more influenced by politics than actual science. and that's why in other posts I say things like "the west is deliberately trying to wipe us out", because it seems like the western countries are against our community's best interest in every possible way they can be.
