Dangerous Times in the Middle East

Recommended Posts

In case anyone hasn't seen the news recently, the American embassy in Baghdad was attacked yesterday by Iranian-backed militia members and their supporters. What played out eerily resembled a scene from my work in progress, right down to the "Death to America" chants (in my book, that was a headline in an Iranian newspaper right before a similar riot). Unlike in my book, however, the local Iraqi "guards" let the militia members walk into the Green Zone, where they are apparently still camped just outside the embassy and laying siege to it.

 

I'm still in the Middle East, but not Iraq, if anyone's wondering. I'd like to put in a prayer request for the American diplomats in the embassy there.

I heard about this but did not know the details. Scary event. I will be praying.

So unfortunate how the same scenario (with more or less deadly variations) keeps playing out every few years...

 

Be safe.

    Some things never change.

    I have sometimes thought that if we could take a time machine one thousand years into the future, and watched or listened to the news, one major story being covered would be "Crisis in the Middle East!"

    "As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever more shall be."

I had a phone conversation with a close friend just this morning.  my thought was that all this turmoil and upheaval started with Sarah and her impatience and that she 'ran ahead' of God.

QS, what is a phoe conversation?

A phoe conversation is a typo when your mind works faster than your fingers.😃

When I first heard bout it I wondered about you and whether you were affected.  glad to know you are not there, but my prayers are continuing for all who are and the surrounding areas.
