Iraq and the Bible

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.

16. Ezekiel preached in 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 na tion 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,

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?!




If nothing else, it's interesting info.

Hmm...not sure of that Koranic reference. By "9:11" I assume it's meant Sura 9 (i.e. book 9), 11th verse, but the actual Sura 9, 11th verse says:

"But if they repent and are steadfast in prayer and give alms, then they are your brethren in religion- we detail the signs unto a people that do know."

And 11:9 is:

"He it is who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and His throne was upon the water that He might try you, which of you did best."

Oh, did a bit of googling...turns out that Koranic verse thingie has long proven to be an internet hoax (a cached sample discussion here: http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache...oran&hl=en</a> )...

...i did a word search for "eagle" on an on-line Koran guide and no, no mentions of eagles going through the land of Allah...

Oh, and here's a point by point critique of the above "Iraq in the Bible" stuff here:

http://www.cresourcei.org/urbanlegend.html

...let's check our sources better...what next? Nigerian chain-mail letters?
