...And The Eagle Will Fly...

NOTE -- I am veryifying if the Koran verse is valid, more as my research progesses. -- NOTE

CONCLUSION: This has turned out to be another internet hoax (boy, I seem to get lots of those) you can read about it here.

I recieved an email from my father today (who is always very nice by sending politics/Iraq/military related news) that had to do with Iraq, the Bible, and the Koran...read on below.

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!

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?!
