    facts cant be right about his parents
    there is no such thing as an Assyrian muslim
    Assyrian’s are the indigenous christians of the middle east. from Mesopotamia
    Muslims slaughtered and massacrer about 800,000 Assyrian’s between 1914 and 1923,.. i really find it hard to believe his dad would be Assyrian and would follow the anti Christian religion of the petifile person who calls himself the profit mohammad.
