Back on November 13, 2006, I posted a reference to an article from Monica Duffy Toft, entitled, "Iraq is gone. Now what?" In my post, I described the prophetic vision of Jeremiah as he saw "a horde of great nations" from "the land of the north" drawing up battle lines against Babylon, who then defeat her and plunder her treasures. I identified these nations from the prophecy itself as the three factions of the Kurds, the Iranian (Mannaeans - "kingdom of Minni"), Iraqi (Adiabenes - "kingdom of Ashkenaz") and Turkish (Urartians - "kingdom of Ararat") Kurds, allied and empowered with the "spirit of the kings of the Medes."
I received the following comment, to which I offered a reply, that I think bears noting at this juncture in the unfolding of the events:
In the next couple of posts, I'll explore the current state of the Kurds relative to their empowerment and relationship to Turkey and Iraq. Interesting things happening on the horizon.
