in response to reader comment: 'ISIS Is About to Destroy Biblical History in Iraq'

Hi PD: You must be aware the the ancient city of Nineveh ( ܢܢܘܐ in Syriac and نينوى in Arabic and נִינְוֵה‎ in Hebrew) is located on the other side of the Tigris river in the Mosul area and this is indeed the Biblical Nineveh and if it is up to the barbarians and criminals that are members of the terrorist group ISIS this great historical site should be destroyed

But what these criminals do not know Islam was really created not in al-Hijaz but in Mesopotamia so if they are destroying Biblical relics of the past they are also destroying their own Islamic past

Submitting....
