MAJOR NEWS Muslims Destroy The Tomb Of The Prophet Jonah\
Shoebat.com ^ | July 7, 2014 | Walid Shoebat and Theodore Shoebat

Posted on 07/07/2014 9:16:33 PM PDT by Vince Ferrer

Muslim devils in Iraq, members of ISIS, destroyed the tomb of the prophet Jonah (called Younas in Arabic). Shoebat.com obtained a video of the destruction:

Jonah's Tomb

According to one Mid East report:

On Friday a local Nineveh official, Zuhair al-Chalabi said that there is information that almost certainly confirms that members of the organization of the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant dug up the grave of the Prophet Younis in the east of Mosul.

Al-Chalabi said in an interview for IraqiNews.com, that “The elements of ISIL controlled the mosque of the Prophet Younis in Mosul since they invaded the city. It is still held by them until now,” pointing out that “elements of ISIL engaged in the process of tampering with the contents of the Mosque.”

Al-Chalabi added that “there is almost certain information stating the fact that the elements of ISIL dug up the grave of the Prophet Younis.”

In just one day, ISIL members committed a series of horrific crimes which illustrate their hostile nature, said Iraqi police in Ninawa spokesman Maj. Ahmed al-Obaidi.

“They torched 11 churches and monasteries out of 35 scattered across the city of Mosul, and hours later destroyed statues of poets, literary and historical figures of which Mosul has long been proud,” he said.

Three Sunni clerics were killed at the hands of ISIL gunmen in different parts of Mosul, he added.

The clerics, named Khattab Hassan, 43, Riyadh al-Wandi, 39, and Abdul Ghafoor Salman, 48, had called on local residents to reject the ISIL and had refused to leave the city, al-Obaidi said.

The gunmen then demolished the historic grave of the prophet Yunus (Jonah) and the shrine of prophet Shayth (Seth), revered by Muslims and Christians alike, which are located inside centuries-old mosques, he said.

Surely these Muslims are devils! They sacked the tomb of the beautiful tomb of the prophet Jonah, the one who God chose to preach to Nineveh. And now in the same area of Nineveh, the devil only wants to take back the people to whom Jonah preached. Let us read from the Scriptures on what the holy Jonah did:

So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey.

And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.

For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.

And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:

But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.

Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?

And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. (Jonah 3:3-10)

And was it not Christ who declared:

The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. (Matthew 12:41)

The Muslims are destroying all of the holy sites, everything sacred they hate, because they are of the sons of Belial.

The same observation held for the Shah of Iran, back when Carter betrayed our Persian ally. He kept the shi'ite mullahs under control. Carter and George Bush-- birds of a feather.

Just as with the invasion and ongoing downfall of America, only one event — impeachment and removal of the evil at the top — can make possible the turning back of this tide. But until that event happens, no turnabout will occur.

So we hope and pray there are enough pieces to pick up at the end of this tribulation.. if it indeed ever ends.

New Amerika doesn’t even have the remotest clue any of this is even occurring, much less why it’s critically important to stop it.

I completely agree. I have asked God to forgive my supporting that horrid war. We visited upon the Iraqi people suffering wayyyy beyond anything Saddam Hussein could ever achieve.

Saddam was not a “good guy”. I think a few of you need to check your historical facts before you get all weepy about the previous regime in Iraq.

The fact of the matter is that most of the previous rulers in the middle east were largely despots who kept things in line by fear, intimidation, and murder. Now that the ‘Arab Spring’ has come and gone (and perpetuated itself in areas like Syria and most recently Iraq), we are seeing the results of NOT dealing with those particular sects with an iron fist.

Consider the source of the problem; don’t praise the former band-aid.

Why do moslems, who supposedly revere the Biblical prophets as forerunners, constantly destroy their tombs?

Jonah . . . wasn't he the guy that so many chrstians insist never actually existed?

Insofar as America’s national security was concerned Saddam’s regime was far better than what’s there now. Yes, he kept things in line by fear, intimidation and murder. Like it or not, that’s how those people are ruled. Are you going to try to make the case Maliki’s government is any better? Have you studied the plight of religious minorities in Iraq in recent years? Christians were far better off when the Ba’ath party was in power.

He still deserved to go, simply because he wouldn’t let us inspect. Even so, Christians had it relatively safe there, thanks to him. Same with Syria and probably Libya.

Now it’s the Dark Ages again there.

Think we should take out China? They won't let us inspect. Russia? Iran? Venezuela? North Korea? Could be a long list of enemies who would not let us inspect within their borders. By what right do we have to inspect. We should reciprocate and let them inspect us?

Our foreign policy should have a state department that advocates for American business and looks out for the interest of our citizens abroad. Our Military should be devoted to protecting America and citizens abroad. Our war policy should be to retaliate against aggressors of American.

The proper way to respond to attacking states would be to sink their navies, cripple their armor, and destroy their airpower. Complete the response by dropping small arms to their oppressed citizens and let them sort out their government and rulers. Leave and rebuild nothing.

We have no moral right to carry our regime changes. Think about the golden or silver rules.

....”As time goes by, Saddaam is looking more and more like the good guy who was holding back the sea of Islamic insanity. What a stupid move to take him out”.....

A woman who travels throughout the third world countries says we are so wrong to go into these nations and attempt to change their cultures and lifestyles.

She clearly stated that though it looks to us that the people are suppressed.. she said those suppressed most are the criminals and those who break the laws of their cultures. She also said that though we see the means they use to do that as torture etc....she said so many are violent and often times lash out within their communities..that the only thing that works to curtail them is fear of being tortured.....and also why their prisons are run as they are.

I can agree to some extent...the only way you can change the culture is to get rid of the Koran and those who teach it. That will not happen until the Lord comes and sets them straight.

I’m not making a case for Saddam, Mubarak, Maliki, Gaddafi, or any of the other despots who used to rule the various nations in the Middle East. I do not applaud their tactics nor their (former) regimes, regardless of how people fared then vs now.

I am WELL aware of how the various Christian sects have been treated in recent years, as I’ve been to certain areas to see it first-hand. And regardless if it was “better” or “worse” under a despot than it is now, my point is still the same:

Saddam Hussein is not to be praised for being a “good guy.” To another poster’s comment, NO, his genocidal actions are not to be tolerated in the interest of what you term as “global stability”. You ignore that, you become complacent with his brand of evil. You think his actions were acceptable? I do not. You are free to disagree with me if you like. He wasn’t stable to begin with, by the by.

G.H.W. Bush had no such rights. Kuwait is not a member of NATO nor do we have a treaty with it. We went in solely at the request of Bush's crony buddies, the Saudi's. They are joined at the hips in the world covert financial system. Ordinary Americans had no interest in this. Bush could have just as easily use executive orders to kick the fracking industry in the ass to start moving faster in getting oil production up.

The thanks we got from Saudi Arabia was four gangs taking over four airlines in 2001. You know the rest. We should have let Saddaam have Saudi Arabia. A whole bunch of Muslims could have done us a favor by dwindling their numbers. That's the something I know that you should know.

We haven't had a responsible president since Ronald Reagan.

If so, bring on the Kaaba Destruction.

The shrines of Saudi Arabia were already destroyed by the Saudis in 1920 when the Saudi state was created. The wahabbis destroyed the tombs of the first caliphs and muhammads wife Aisha. These Isis are an offshoot of the Saudi wahabbi movement. The wahabbis destroy all tombs etc which nit only antagonizes Shuas, Ismailies, Bohrus but they also target fellow Sunnus who follow the Sufi school

These are Wahabbis/salafists. They believe in strict monotheism, so any veneration or respect to anyone other than God is haram. Again, these are the most virulent Moslems

Also note that this tomb dates from the 6th century. Prior to that it was an Assyrian Christian church
