    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 with 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 (could be a prophesy). (Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!

:slight_smile: really funny

Yeah, that verse doesn’t appear in the Qu’ran.

@ poster:

Koran Chapter 9 verse 11 actually reads:

The Signs of Allah have they sold for a miserable price, and (many) have they hindered from His way: evil indeed are the deeds they have done.

In a Believer they respect not the ties either of kinship or of covenant! It is they who have transgressed all bounds.

But (even so), if they repent, establish regular prayers, and practise regular charity,- they are your brethren in Faith: (thus) do We explain the Signs in detail, for those who understand. **

But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and taunt you for your Faith,- fight ye the chiefs of Unfaith: for their oaths are nothing to them: that thus they may be restrained.

Will ye not fight people who violated their oaths, plotted to expel the Messenger, and took the aggressive by being the first (to assault) you? Do ye fear them? Nay, it is Allah Whom ye should more justly fear, if ye believe!

Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of Believers,
