Fri Feb 14, 2003 8:12 pm

From Logosresourcepages.org

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, mean country with deep roots. Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible. Here’s why.

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

Abraham came from a city in Iraq – Genesis 11:31 & Acts 7:2-4

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 – Esther

The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in Iraq – Nahum

The book of Revelation has prophecies against Babylon, which was the old name for the nation of Iraq – Revelation 17 & 18

There was a programme on the ancient remains in Iraq on BBC2 recently, from some of the world's oldest civilizations.

I'm an Assyrian. We are the natives of Iraq, and we still exist in the northern part of Iraq, along with the Kurds and Arabs. Iraq is very rich when it comes to culture!

Hi Marco,
It just occured to me to ask you
about your opinion on this upcoming
war against Iraqi and it's regime
and the pushing for it by the Bush
administration.
I'd like very much to know what you
think since you are originally from
Iraq. Also, what do you think of
Tarek Aziz? I have just heard him
on CNN during his press conference
in Rome after his meeting with the
Holy Father.
Anyways, I have to admit, he talked
really well and has made good points.

Thanks,
Advanced

Hi Advancedkid!

Thanks for asking for my opinion. I'm against the war, because the Iraqi civilian population will be affected. Saddam definately needs to go, but we need to find a better solution than war. I know this answer probably sounds unrealistic but Iraqi's have suffered enough. They've been in wars for 20 years now (Iran-Iraq war, Persian Gulf war, sanctions, etc...). Iraq used to have the largest middle class in all of the Arab world (very intellectual people, extremism was non-existent), and unfortunately that's all going away. IMO this war is unnecessary, but how can we get rid of Saddam?

Hi Marco,
Thanks for your opinion.
I fully agree with you. In fact, war is the most
unrealistic solution, especially at this time.
Have you heard Mr. Tarek Aziz speaking??
Well, to me it is very clear now that to the Bush
"people", the problem isn't really Saddam.
Best regards,
Advanced
