    Money to rebuild is finding ways to flow in provinces of Iraq
    10-1-07
    http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/10/...ca/rebuild.php

    Because of security threats and a seemingly immovable bureaucracy, the federal ministries in Baghdad largely failed to spend billions of dollars of Iraqi oil revenues set aside last year to rebuild things like roads, schools, hospitals and power plants.

    Although some ministries have improved slightly, what has really caught the eye of Iraqi politicians is the way some local governments have begun bypassing the morass in Baghdad by using hundreds of millions of dollars of the reconstruction money from the government to finance regional projects.

    The approach has found such favor among some political leaders that Iraq's deputy prime minister, Barham Salih, arrived here with an all-star cast of senior government officials Sunday to announce that Babil Province, whose capital is Hilla, would be rewarded with $70 million in new money and financing for a major loan program for small businesses and individuals.

    But what does this matter? From what I read on another thread the other day, the babylon of the end times is babylon New York, right here in the US!!

    Ok, Obviousley, I do not believe that Babylon is in the US. I was being Snarky. Bad Anna!

    Non the less, this stuff is fascinating. Clealry, Babylon is being rebuilt. We are getting closer and closer.

    I think I am going to start a scrapbook, with bible prophecy on one side, and the fullfilment of it with news articals on the other page. Ya know, like side by side comparrison.

    West to protect Iraqi heritage
    11-20-07
    http://www.turkishdailynews.com.tr/a...?enewsid=88912

    "We must save the cultural heritage of Iraq while it is still time," said UNESCO deputy director general Francoise Riviere.

    She said it was necessary to relaunch a campaign to stop the trafficking of stolen Iraqi treasures, as required under UN Resolution 1483 adopted in May 2003.

    The committee said Iraqi and U.S. forces had a special responsibility to protect culturally important sites, especially ancient Babylon, south of Baghdad, and Ur in the southeast of the country.

    Keeping Christianity alive in Iraq
    11-20-07
    http://edition.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/me...aq.christians/

    "Peace for all believers," the congregation at the Sacred Heart church in Eastern Baghdad sings, as the Patriarch, Emmanuel III Delly, holds a heavy cross in his hands, his eyes closed.

    He seems focused on the hard work that lies ahead.

    Pope Benedict XVI recently appointed the Patriarch of the Chaldean Church for Babylon, an ancient denomination with roots in the age of Jesus Christ, a cardinal.

    Emmanuel III is the first Iraqi to be elevated to that status and will receive his ordination on November 24 in Rome.

    That means somewhere down the line, Emmanuel III could become Pope.

    It is all coming together fast. My guess is that the UN will move in as soon as it becomes a little more secure, and Babylon will explode with growth. Europe will have far more to invest than our debt-ridden country.

    A couple of interesting comments bolded in the article.


    Metro Detroit Chaldeans traveling to Italy for historic cardinal inauguration
    11-21-07
    http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/a.../1049/SPORTS01

    Less than 5% the population of Demy IIIís native country of Iraq is Christian. That segment of the population is dwindling because its members are migrating to regions outside of the country, Father Emanuel Shaleta of St. George's Chaldean Catholic Church in Shelby Township said.

    "There have been Christians in Iraq for thousands of years," Shaleta said, "And this would be the first Chaldean Patriarch to be nominated cardinal. His title is honorary, but as patriarch, he is already at the highest point for our religious hierarchy."

    He said that Chaldeans were present hundreds of years before Jesus Christ in the capital of the Mesoptamian empire, Babylon, which was ruled by the ancient Chaldeans and is today present-day Baghdad.

    Shaleta said that while speaking, Emmanuel III usually stresses that the Chaldeans are Iraq's original citizens and they will not accept harassment because of their religion, attempting to keep the peace despite spiraling violence.



    The Amercia = Mystery Babylon argument is looking less and less persuasive.

    Isa 13:19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Isa 13:20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.


    Jer 50:24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.
    Jer 50:25 The LORD hath opened his armory, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
