    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

    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. Here's why!

    * Eden was in Iraq - Genesis 2:10-14

    * Adam & Eve were created in Iraq - Genesis 2:7-8

    * Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq - Genesis

    * Nimrod established Babylon & The Tower of Babel was built
    in Iraq

    * Genesis 10:8-97; 11:1-4

    * The confusion of the languages took place in Iraq -
    Genesis 11:5-11

    * Abraham came from a city in Iraq - Genesis 11:31; Acts

    * Isaac's bride came from Iraq - Genesis 24:3-4; 10

    * Jacob spent 20 years in Iraq - Genesis 27:42-45; 31:38

    * The first world Empire was in Iraq - Daniel 1:1-2;2:36-38

    * The greatest revival in history was in a city in Iraq -
    Jonah 3

    * The events of the book of Esther took place in Iraq

    * The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in Iraq -

    * The book or Revelation has prophecies against Babylon
    (Iraq's former name). Revelation 17 &18 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 Quran, (the Islamic Bible)
    Quran (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!)

    NOTE!!!!!! Please refer to the Judges post below concerning the accuracy of this last sentence ----(see snopes) . Thank you Your Honor for pointing this out. Chief

    I didn't mean to infer the balance was also in question.

    All but the reference to the Quran is absolutely true, as Pops said.

    Perhaps it would be best if one sends it to their mailing lists to delete the last reference.....

    I'd rather have the old eagle flying up their asses with an umbrella open---I remember hearing them pray in Israel in 98---their calls to prayers reminded me of calling hogs on the Iowa farm as a boy---I know my comments about the people aren't very gracious, but I worked around them in Morocco in the 50's---hard folks to comphrend, let alone tolerate.
