"I don't wish to interrupt your discussion with Farid BUT I would be interested in your opinion of the following Bible verse.
O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us-- he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks."
If you read the BIBLE, OLD TESTAMENT , you will find a lot of contradiction in it, if you recall it, I did make some remarks on them on this forum. So, if the BIBLE said that, DON'T forget it said also against the JEWISH people, but unfortunately that these people( JEWISH ) hate our people very much, a case in point even in the past when GOD ordered JONAH to go to Nineveh , if you remember the story, he didn't go until he was forced to do that.
Now, my explanation will be two things:
- Because of hate , OR
- May be an error in copying, which is very remote.
In conclusion, I am not a theologian, and I think we shouldn't pay attention to what the BIBLE said or not, let us do our job in serving our nation and serving our nation shouldn't require to study the Bible period, and further I my self believe in SECULARISM , Nationalism should not be mixed with religion, just a living example, THAT OUR DIVISION comes from the religion, not itself, but those who took religion in a wrong way, and if we were not divided as we are today on the religious lines, the Nestorians, the Catholics , the Jacobites and others , today we never have the problems that we are facing that these CATHOLICS who were ASSYRIANS and belong to the Church of the East or the Assyrian Church , because after the 10th century A.D. and as result of the Arab invasion the southern Mesopotamians were Arabized and Islamized, a case in point there was a Bishop( from BABEL) by the name Bar Rubban who converted to Islam and was called( Ali Ben sahel Ben Rabban 785-861) who was defending Islam and furthermore , " The Chaldaeans LOST their ethnicity in that of the Arabs as they lost their truth in Islam ." (The Book of Hagarism page 88).
