LONDON,— Iraqi Kurdistan looked set to unload its first cargo of disputed crude oil in Israel from its new independent pipeline after weeks of seeking an outlet as Iraq's central government has threatened legal action against any buyer.

The SCF Altai tanker was anchored near Israel's Ashkelon port early on Friday morning, ship tracking and industry sources said. The tanker is expected to dock early on Saturday, local sources said.

Securing the first sale of oil from its independent pipeline to the Turkish port of Ceyhan is crucial for the Kurdish Regional Government as it seeks greater financial independence from war-torn Iraq.

The Kurds are the only entity in Iraq for whom I have any respect. I’d be happy if they took over the whole of Northern Iraq.

Heard a sermon last night that talked about the Kurds in the last days. Did a quick search. This is worth the read.

With prophetic implications, the Kurds, known as the Medes in the Bible, seize oil-rich region of Iraq. What does it mean?

From what I have read the Kurds already have a more or less separate country from Iraq. So let them secede and prosper.

No we understand why Obmessiah will intervene in Iraq and who he will help.
