  • Joel Rosenberg: U.S. TO HELP REBUILD CITY OF BABYLON IN IRAQ

    http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/

    Largely overlooked by the Western news media over the past few weeks was an enormously significant story. The government of Iraq is moving forward with plans to protect the archaeological remains of the ancient City of Babylon, in preparation for building a modern city of Babylon. The project, originally started by the late Saddam Hussein, is aimed eventually at attracting scores of “cultural tourists” from all over the world to see the glories of Mesopotamia’s most famous city. What’s more, the Obama Administration is contributing $700,000 towards “The Future of Babylon Project,” through the State Department’s budget.
    “Officials hope Babylon can be revived and made ready for a rich future of tourism, with help from experts at the World Monuments Fund (WMF) and the U.S. embassy,” reports the Reuters news agency. “‘The Future of Babylon’ project launched last month seeks to ‘map the current conditions of Babylon and develop a master plan for its conservation, study and tourism,’ the WMF says. ‘We don’t know how long it will take to reopen to tourists,’ said Mariam Omran Musa, head of a government inspection team based at the site. ‘It depends on funds. I hope that Babylon can be reborn in a better image.’”

        • Just when it seems this world cannot get wackier, it does. It use to be by the week and now it is getting wackier (and more lost) by the day, if not by the hour.
          Jesus, please come back TODAY!!!!

          • Satan thinks he knows what he's doing and his useful idiots that don't believe are probably thinking "we'll show those Christians, rebuild babylon and when nothing happens it'll prove there is no GOD." Laugh will be on them won't it.

              Amen to that! Offering hope in Christ to those who are hurting is even being taken as offensive.

                      • Saddam already attempted this, "new Babylon". Saddam had the ruins of ancient Babylon reconstructed with modern bricks bearing Saddam's name. What’s fascinating to me, is that both Daniel and Ezekiel are supposed to be buried in Iraq. I saw footage of a ranking U.S. Military, take the cameraman to Daniels grave.

                        • I knew that Saddam Hussein had started the rebuilding of Babylon. It never occured to me that the US would help fund it. I should have known.

                              Definately by the hour.
