Even more impressive, speaking of things Biblical, Leah is of Assyrian descent. If the word Assyrian sounds familiar, it should. The prophet Jonah was sent to Nineveh, as recorded in the Old Testament, to preach repentance and forgiveness. Modern day Mosul in Iraq, was once Assyria. That area in what has been called Iraq for a century became Christians, and remained Christian for almost 2000 years. This was, however, before the diaspora brought on an Exodus that went all over the world. I have spoke to Americans of Assyrian descent from came to America from Iran, Iraq and other places.
