Babylon's Lions, Gods, Harlots Invade Louvre

Babylon has a bad reputation. The Bible depicts the ancient city on the Euphrates as "the mother of harlots.'' The Tower of Babel is the symbol of megalomania.

A huge exhibition at the Louvre, the first ever on Babylon in France, is determined to correct the lopsided image. Our ideas, the organizers tell us, have been distorted by malicious propaganda.

The show, which is supported by Natixis SA, runs through June 2, after which it will travel to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin (June 26 to Oct. 5) and the British Museum (Nov. 13 to March 15 2009).

I know its dead serious, but it is funny too. For hundreds of years we can sit and ponder the meanings of this book we call the Bible, with history written in reverse. How can these things be??:idunno Does it really mean what it apparently says.

Then its time for that particular bit of prophecy to unfold and Boom! Right before our very eyes, it starts coming alive from a multitude of directions and for many reasons. Its time so move over and get out of the way, its showtime for one more piece of prophecy to step on stage and shine with truth.

Fish Farms Make Comeback in Iraq's Babil Province

Fish farms have begun to thrive in Iraq’s Babil province, as Task Force Marne soldiers take on a critical role in rebuilding this vital industry.

Thanks to the vision of Army Col. Thomas James, commander of the 3rd Infantry Division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team and Army Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch, commander of Multinational Division Center -- along with help from 4th Brigade Combat Team soldiers -- residents in the region are benefiting from this massive undertaking.

“After securing our area of operations in MND-C, our goal is achieving sustainable security for the people of our towns and villages,” James said. “One important means of accomplishing this is by providing jobs – including those at the fish farms of Babil province, where several thousand jobs will be available.” Creating jobs not only provides employment and income opportunities, but also establishes a positive alternative to joining extremist groups, he added.

The new fish farms have the potential to add at least 5,000 direct and indirect local employment opportunities to the region. In Hillah, the Euphrates Fish Farm alone will employ at least 500 people.

U.S. Military Forces Have Damaged Babylon, Iraq Official Says

U.S. military forces and their allies in Iraq have damaged archeological sites including Babylon by setting up bases, using heavy equipment, filling sandbags and digging trenches, said an adviser to the Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.

At an impromptu press briefing organized by the British Museum in London today, the adviser, Bahaa Mayah, showed slides of the military presence at about a dozen sites. While the Babylon site has now been vacated by U.S. and Polish forces, he said, "we cannot reverse'' the damage done.
