Perhaps this should not be called a Biblical Gem because after many years of writing Gems, this is the first time I am offering information without a scripture to discuss. I will do two things in this document that you have not seen from me before. I will repeat information on Iraq that I have used before, because many may not have seen it and I think it is appropriate for this time in history.

And now after all this I want to call your attention to a verse I have seen in the Koran;(the Islamic Bible) A direct copy of Koran 9:11,”For it is written that a son of Arabia will awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle will 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.” Now please consider that America is typically represented by the symbol of the Eagle. Can this possibly be a phophesy being fulfilled right now in Iraq? If so, how did a true prophesy get into the Muslim Bible?
Be sure to notice the prophecy in the last paragraph. It came directly from God and was probably given over 4,000 year ago, stating the wrath of the Eagle would cleanse the land of Allah. God knew the Muslims would worship their god of hate, Allah; and although it cost over 4,000 of our brave American Eagle soldiers, we have lived to see it happen.
