The difference between todays ISIS and the ancient peoples of the cradle of civilization-who are the Assyrians of today-is that the ancient peoples of the land and their Empire contributed to human history in a way that Islamic State will never be able to achieve. This is due to the fact that fundamentalist and their Islamic State do not create anything for the benefit of the world community. They lack the ability to manufacture a simple screw driver or a hammer, both of which they had to purchase from others in order to destroy the ancient artifacts of the land they believe their Islamic State has a right to claim as its own for their nation in order to unleash an ancient prophetic battle in which people must die.
Todays Science Alert post states that: “Analysis of an ancient codebreaking tablet has revealed that Babylonian astronomers had calculated the movements of Jupiter using an early form of geometric calculus some 1,400 years before we thought the technique was invented by the Europeans.”

In the article we stated: In their ongoing genocidal campaign to eradicate the Assyrian nation by killing Assyrian civilians and anyone else who stands in their way, rampaging ISIL fighters are also destroying Assyrian artifacts, cities, and churches. On websites and in other media ISIL gloats in this destruction with photos of ISIL fighters removing Christian crosses from the domes of those churches and replacing them with the star-and-crescent device of Islam.
Ironically, the star-and-crescent motif was an element of ancient Assyrian pagan symbology that Islam adopted some three thousand years after it first appeared in the Near East. The star represented Ishtar, goddess of love, fertility, sex, and war, who was associated with the morning and evening star, i.e. the planet Venus; the crescent represented the god Sin in his aspect as the new moon.
