    This is freaky, interesting and scary all in one!



    Read down to the very bottom, you don't want to miss this!



    VERY INTERESTING -



    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 < /I> !



    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 ofShinar , 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 with 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?! God Bless you all Amen !

    In the english translation of the koran that I've seen- 9:11 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."

    Cherokee...

    Freaky yes... scary, yes... interesting, yes. True? NOT REALLY.

    Koran 9:11, for those of you who know or read the Koran or Qu'ran is this: "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."

    Oh wait... this is America and I am poor! Maybe the Koran was trying to tell us something! LOL

    Seriously...

    The middle east has plenty of history to it relevant to the bible of course and humankind. Eden has never been found however.

    A good part of biblical history taes place there because many civillizations sprouted from there. Many religions too. From the Enuma Elish, the holy book of the Sumerians (also of Iraq) to the Babylonians, to the many folk religions... Iraq was a hopping place... but why?

    Look at the georaphy of the place before Saddam ruined the marshlands. It really was a golden place to find fish and birds and plenty of food- especially to folks who are used to waking up in a desert sandstorm, picking the felafel oand sand out of their teeth, and foraging for the next meal while smelling camel butt all day.

    The problem with mixing too much faith and not enough fact is that good folks get misguided. I had to look it up to see for myself, so I cant blame you or whoever sent it to you... It just turned out to be incorrect.

    Iraq was a lush firtile land in the south between the Tigris and Euphrates. Still is to some extent today. But its numerous mentions in the bible all hint toward that lush an firtile aspect of and how that equates to desert folk in as much as survival and real life issues, and not so much the mystical or supernatural nature of the land.

    PS- just found: http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_quran_911.htm I edited this link in soon as I got it. (and my translation is one of the ones listed)

    In my simplistic view of things, it would seem to me that those peoples indigeneous to a land (the Middle East) so steeped in history, culture and spiritual ideologies would use the tenets of same to build and enhance (metaphorical) bridges, instead of bombing them (literally). Rodney King uttered some of the the most truthful words in history when he inquired "...why can't we all just get along?".

    I have seen that story going around for years now. I first saw it about the time of the Iraq war started! I imagin thousand upon thousands believe and forward it on to 10, 20, 30, friends and more. Sadly, it just fuels hate, and bad decisions! "The truth shall set you free!"

    Well, my philosophy is when you got that many "coincedences" that fit so neatly together the red flags have to start flying...

    Yeah...this was going around pretty heavily when I was in Kuwait in '03. Still though, it is a pretty interesting read though.
