11 Jun ISIS captures Mosul, Iraq’s Second-Largest City
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has captured Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq. Mosul by the way is essentially the Nineveh of biblical times. I was very strongly considering going there last summer. Needless to say, the ramifications of this are huge. While it is clear that the US and Iraq are on alert, be sure that Iran is also carefully eyeing these events as well. The more that I ponder the potential truth in a radical futurist interpretation of Daniel chapter 8, the more that I suspect that it is this region (including large segments of Syria and Eastern Turkey) from which the AC may emerge. If this is the case, it also appears as though there will be at least two significant wars in the region. The first being an Iranian effort to consolidate regional power and the second a Turkish response. Of course, this is all speculation, but it is not an entirely impossible scenario.
