Iraq odd isn`t it?


1. The Garden of Eden was in Iraq.

2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization!

3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.

4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq

5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq!

6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Iraq!

7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.

8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq.

9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of Israel.

10. Amos cried out in Iraq!

11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem.

12. Daniel was! in the lion's den in Iraq!

13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq (Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth person in the

Fiery furnace!)

14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the "writing on the wall" in Iraq.

15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Iraq.

17. The wise men were from Iraq

18. Peter preached in Iraq.

19. The "Empire of Man" described in Revelation is called Babylon, which was a city in Iraq!

And you have probably seen this one. Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible. But do you know which nation is second? It is Iraq! However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia . The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers The name Iraq, means country with deep roots.

Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.

No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated it than Iraq.

And also, This is something to think about! Since America is typically represented by an eagle. Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages...

The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)

Koran (9:11 ) - For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and there was peace.
(Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!
It was sent to me by a friend who had a niece whose boyfriends mothers cousins mother in laws daughters nephews fathers uncle had a toffee shop in Bolton, so it has to be genuine!

You should have said, in that case............
Sorry Hig but 9.11 of the Koran actually reads:
But if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, they are your brethren in faith; and We make the communications clear for a people who know.

My personal favourite bit of the Koran (says he, giggling) is Chapter 23: The Believers vv1-5:

Successful indeed are the believers,
Who are humble in their prayers,
And who keep aloof from what is vain,
And who are givers of poor-rate,
And who guard their private parts... :?

I'm with hig on this one.
Please don't let us forget the old adage "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story"

You would have thought with all the prophesies and wailing etc ,not to mention bunging Shadrach,Meshack and Abendigo into the furnace,some person would have thought that at some stage the site will hit the Punkha?

I wonder what Amos was crying out about?The exchange rate?State of the roads?Or just general Biblical "Crying out"???
9.11 can you read the original text? whos to say? Not all biblical quotes are correct, but then like i said, it was sent to me by a friend who.....................................

I sould think Amos's "crying out" would come under the "wailing and gnashing of teeth" department of the bible.
