دور الآثار والنصوص المسمارية في تعزيز هوية العراق pdf
Iraq is the Cradle of one of few original civilizations in the world. This fact is indicated by the archaeological finds that resulted from the excavations since the mid of nineteenth century. These excavations came out with tens of hundreds of Cuneiform texts inscripted on clay and stone tablets. These tablets, in turn, reflects many aspects of ancient Iraqi civilization. Foreign scholars embarked on studying these antiquities. It is significant to know that many of the texts read have a great similarity with what mentioned in the Old – Testament. This fact is elucidated by tens of papers and studies in foreign Languages along with very few number in Arabic.Up till now, most of the studies are not entitled with ‘Iraq’, but rather they are with some foreign names or with ancient names like Greek term “Mesopotamia”. This term has been translated into “the land between the two rivers” It is the most commonly used term. However, most of Iraqis do not know exactly what is meant by this term, viz, “Mesopotomia” let alone the ancient names like “Babel”, “Assur”, “Sumer” and so on.Moreover, Akkadian and Summerian texts were and still are written in Latin and translated into foreign Languages. They introduced exsotic information about ancient history of Iraq. These text use biblical names of the rulers and kings of ancient Iraq.Adopting such approach in dealing with history of ancient Iraq has religious and ethnic implications. A case like this isolates the present Iraq from its ancient history. Therefore, it is our responsibility to adopt pure Iraqi school that bases on solid scientific grounds in studying our ancient history and in writing its ancient Languages in Arabic Alphabet.
