    Assyrian Church, Arbil.

    Chaldeans from Mardin, SETurkey, 19th century. They are Syriac-speaking Christians in unity with Rome; they are ethnic Assyrians whose history reaches back to pre-Biblical times. About 500,000 live in Iraq and only about 40,000 in Syria, 7,000-9,000 in Turkey, and 20,000 or so in Iran. They are often discriminated against in these areas by Arabs and Arab-speakers and Muslims, and have been persecuted in Turkey and Iran. Lately, Islamic rebels in Syria (IS) have made them a special target.
