Why Iraq is important -- according to my wingnut cousin
Her latest email:

Read all of this one, it is interesting!! Read down to the very bottom highlighted in green, IT GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS!!! 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!

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, Th is 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?!

:puke:

2. :puke: is right
Ignoring that Iraq is a political entity that didn't exist back then, I'm sick of that Koran verse crap that got passed around. Where did that 9:11 thing come from?

6. Funny how they weren't very concerned about the looting of the Baghdad Museum.
I'm pretty sure Snopes has something on this.

8. Hahaha, such bullshit.
These people should actually buy and read the Qu'ran, or at least check Chapter 9, Verse 11 on any number of online "Qu'ran lookup" websites. What amazes me is that this hoax still goes around CONSTANTLY.

11. Verse number and text are incorrect
There is NOTHING in the Qur'an that is like this--please write her back with the CORRECT words for Sura 9 Verse 11, which are

But (even so); if they repent,
Establish regular prayers,
And practice regular charity--
They are your brethren in Faith:
(Thus) do We explain the Signs
In detail, for those who understand.

(this verse is talking about what to do with folks who were once your enemies)
Source: The Meaning of The Holy Qur'an Abdullah Yusuf Ali-Amana Corporation, Brentwood MD, 1993


Also, #17 is incorrect: The Three Magi were from Persia, and were Zoroastrians.

14. This is a repackaging of an old lie
The verse purportedly from the Koran doesn't exists. Check with snopes and do a reply all to your cousin and tell her/him that she needs to gather back the feathers that are her/his lies scattered to the wind.
