IRAQ - An Interesting Read

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This was emailed to me........its an interesting read. Saddam should of read it years ago. Hope you enjoy it:

    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 â€" 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 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 of course was 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’s Iraq! However, that’s 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.
  2. The Bibles ok, but I prefer Enid Blyton. Click the Pic to veiw the warning.

  3. Im sorry but when referring to the Bible and other such sources can we please use quotation marks around the term "history" so as not to confuse the simple folk.

  4. Complete Balls. Sura 9 - 11 has nothing to do with eagles or Arabia.

    Which forms part of a longer examination of the principle of repentance (at-Tawbah) and not some pseudo-prophetic Nostradamus-inspired codswallop.

    How odd - I thought 'Iraq' was a British colonial construct rather than a 5,000+ year old country!

    What did the Iraqis/Mesopomiansnaianss do for us anyway?

    If it is they who are to blame for sky-fairyism, then it serves them right!

    Urban Legends
    A Verse from the Koran

    The Legend
    Submitted in May of 2005

    The following is a verse from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)

    Koran (9:11) -- For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle, and the Eagle would fly on high and speak of the son of Arabia's abominable Works of Mad Desire. 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 though the Works of Mad Desire were found not, the son of Arabia was driven from his hole of shame. Truly the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah of this particular scourge and there was, briefly, peace.

    Collected in 18th century America

    In the Koran it says:

    Koran (17:76) -- Truly it is written, from the sons of the Lion shall arise an Eagle, and the Eagle shall hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by almighty Allah with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, kings are sent to rule among men, deriving their just powers from the blessings of Allah and the word of their brothers.

    Behind the Legend
    We don't like to spend a lot of time discussing whether particular religious texts are historically accurate or not, largely because when we do so we always end up saying that they aren't and our server ends up crashing due to the massive influx of hate mail and death threats (long-time readers will recall the "Is the Bible correct when it implies that dinosaurs were vegetarians" fiasco). Fortunately, in this case, we don't have to go there.

    We had not read the Koran, so we called on the expertise of a scholar of Islam at the University of Southern College Polytechnic, West Campus, in California. We asked her to look up the two citations listed above, but even before she located them we knew that these were not legitimate. It turns out that the Koran is written in this sort of squiggle language, and although we can't for the life of us read it, we're bright enough to know that it looks nothing like the text we were sent.

    So the bottom line is, this stuff isn't in the Koran, so we don't have to say whether or not it is true. Whew!

    One of the people who submitted this item asked us to discuss the parallels between these (false) citations and recorded history. Honestly, we can't think of any. The first one might be about a subscription to Mad magazine or something. It's really hard to tell with this obscure poetic stuff.
