    Interesting Facts or Fiction!!

    The last one will blow you away.
    IRAQ - VERY INTERESTING - DID YOU KNOW?
    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?! God Bless you all Amen !
    Make my day!

    Everything is indeed fact about Iraq . The verse quote is not 9:11 of the Koran, however.

    Summary of thee Rumor
    A verse in the Koran, which happens to correspond to the date of the Attack on America, predicts that "the wrath of the Eagle" would be felt throughout the lands of Allah.


    The Truth
    This is a hoax.
    The quote is not from anywhere in the Koran (or Quran).
    Chapter 9 verse 11 actually says "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." (M. H. Shakir translation)
