    “I KEPT the four girls in an abandoned house. Each night I would have sex with a different one,” a grubby looking man said, unperturbed.“Sometimes they seemed scared, but they never said no. They were all virgins when I got them and more beautiful than you can imagine.”It was the world’s single largest military operation in nearly 15 years.The battle for the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the largest offensive in the war against Islamic State - and no doubt, the bloodiest - took a mighty three years for allied forces to remove Islamic State’s tight grip.But with freedom, comes...

    What is happening on the Temple Mount has prophetic significance. The reborn Jewish nation will celebrate its 70th year since becoming a nation again (1948) which even on its own, sets off alarms for those who have ears to hear. Combined with the ability, just this week, of Jews to go up to, and pray upon, the Temple Mount, and a "generation that shall not pass away", we are set for some interesting and exciting times. All the end times nations are gradually gathering around Israel. It only takes a spark to set off the beginning of the ultimate world...

    Erbil, Iraq, Jan 24, 2017 / 12:03 am (Aid to the Church in Need).- “I don't understand how people can harm each other so much,” sighs security guard Louis Petrus. Petrus recently returned to his hometown for the first time: the Christian city of Qaraqosh, near Mosul, which he had to flee in August 2014, when Islamic State captured the largest Christian city on the Nineveh plain. He told international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need: “Look at my house: it is damaged, most of my furniture has been stolen and my household effects are broken. Other inhabitants...
  • Mosul(Ninevah) in Prophecy...

    The ancient city of Mosul, in Iraq, is currently experiencing an agonizing struggle between regular forces of the Iraqi Government, allied with the Kurdish Peshmurga , local Iraqi militias and supported by US and international coalition forces, seeking to wrest the city from the forces of the recently formed ISIS army. The joint operation is called in Arabic, Qadimun Ya Naynawa, translated “Oh Ninewa,Here We come!”. Can you see in the Arabic translation the name of an ancient Biblical city? Ninewa is the Arabic way of saying, “Ninevah”, the city which Jonah had once preached repentance unto, in spite of...

    The chilly December wind whipped rain across the strewn wreckage of a city that, nearly 3,000 years ago, ruled almost the entire Middle East. Rivulets of water ran through the dirt, washing away chunks of ancient stone. The city of Nimrud in northern Iraq is in pieces, victim of the Islamic State group's fervor to erase history. The remains of its palaces and temples, once lined in brilliant reliefs of gods and kings, have been blown up. The statues of winged bulls that once guarded the site are hacked to bits. Its towering ziggurat, or step pyramid, has been bulldozed.

    In another act of horror from ISIS, six boys have been taken and tortured to death with welding rods on welding equipment for the “crime” of playing soccer:  Islamic State has executed six boys with a welding rod and flogged three young men for playing football, it has been reported. The six boys from the Nineveh area in Iraq were said to have been handcuffed before a welding machine and rod was used to kill them in a public execution by the terror group in central Mosul. “ISIS said that the youths belonged to a resistance faction,” a source...

    ISIS barbarians have destroyed a 2,000-year-old gate close to their Iraqi stronghold of Mosul. The breathtaking structure is known as the Gate of God, and used to guard the ancient Assyrian city Nineveh. The destruction of the ancient structure, also called the Mashki Gate, has been confirmed by the British Institute for the Study of Iraq, and the Antiquities Department in Baghdad has not denied the demolition. The terrorists demolished the ancient gate using military equipment, according to activists in Mosul. ISIS thugs have destroyed many of Iraqi historic sites and monuments, including the Assyrian city of Nimrud, the Winged...

    Iraqi engineers involved in building the Mosul dam 30 years ago have warned that the risk of its imminent collapse and the consequent death toll could be even worse than reported. They pointed out that pressure on the dam’s compromised structure was building up rapidly as winter snows melted and more water flowed into the reservoir, bringing it up to its maximum capacity, while the sluice gates normally used to relieve that pressure were jammed shut. The Iraqi engineers also said the failure to replace machinery or assemble a full workforce more than a year after Islamic State temporarily held...

    A clay tablet that has baffled scientists for 150 years has been identified as a witness's account of the asteroid suspected of being behind the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Researchers who cracked the cuneiform symbols on the Planisphere tablet believe that recorded an asteroid thought to have been more than half a mile across. The tablet, found by Henry Layard in the remains of the library in the royal place at Nineveh in the mid-19th century, is thought to be a 700 B.C. copy of notes made by a Sumerian astronomer watching the night sky. He referred to the...

    ISIL is obliterating the Middle East's cultural landmarks. But should we arm ourselves in order to save threatened sites, asks Dan Cruickshank. ‘When Egypt comes under the auspices of the Khalifa [Caliphate], there will be no more Pyramids, no more Sphinx, no more idolatry.” This, I was told by British Muslim political activist Anjem Choudary, “will be just”. This chilling recent interview with Choudary in east London was part of a journey that started in early 2002. I went to Afghanistan in March of that year, just after the fall of the Taliban, to report for a television programme on...

    A TV host broke down on camera recently while discussing the persecution of Christians in Iraq. Nahi Mahdi was speaking with two panelists on Asia TV when he was overcome with sadness over the travesties taking place in his country. "(It is terrible) when people come and force you to leave your home," one panelist said in the July 20 airing, translated by MEMRI TV and reported by The Blaze. "This is what happened to the Christians today." "Yes, the Christians," Mahdi interjects. "Today... I cried at home." The television hosts then began to weep, using his keffiyeh to wipe...

Paul Collins, of the British Institute for the Study of Iraq, in an email to Aleteia, said it was “distressing” to watch scenes of the destruction of colossal winged bulls of the seventh century BC. “These are certainly the real things and it looks from the video that the sculptures are those situated outside...

    BAGHDAD - Islamic State militants in northern Iraq have destroyed a collection of statues and sculptures dating back thousands of years, according to a video published online in the name of the radical Islamist group. The video showed the statues, some identified as antiquities from Iraq's 7th century BC Assyrian era, being toppled, smashed and broken up by sledgehammer. A man shown in the video said they were being destroyed because they promoted idolatry. "The Prophet ordered us to get rid of statues and relics, and his companions did the same when they conquered countries after him," the unidentified man...

This northern province, whose area is over three times larger than that of Lebanon, is now part of the Islamic State’s caliphate, and its Christians and churches are no longer tolerated. What has become of Nineveh’s Christians?...
