“Islamic State” Limits Water Supply To Christian Towns In Northern Iraq

Before setting their sights on Israel, the “Islamic State” must first focus on everyone else under its sphere of control — other co-religionists who have not yet fallen in line with the “prophet” Mohammed’s vision of “pure” Islam, and all Christians who refuse to convert …

Revelation 13:16-18, “And it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate [ψηφίζω – “reckon”] the number [ἀριθμός – “multitude” of people] of the beast, for it is the number [ἀριθμός – “multitude” of people] of a man, and his number [ἀριθμός – “multitude” of people] is [χξς – “In The Name of Allah” in Arabic].”

AINA News – “The water purification plants in Mosul supply water for the city and surrounding areas. After taking control of Mosul on June 10, ISIS severely limited the water supply from al-Rashidiya and al-Slamiya water projects, which provide the Northern and Southern Nineveh Plain with potable water (AINA 2014-06-27, 2014-06-18). According to a report by the Hammurabi Human Rights Organization, ISIS is allowing only about 90 minutes of pumping per day.

The Assyrian towns of Baghdede, Karemlis, Bartella, Tel Kepe, Batnaya and Bashiqah — home to nearly 200,000 Assyrians — face severe water shortages.

Residents have begun digging wells to secure water, but are limited by a lack of funding.

The towns of Baghdede, Karemlis and Bartella, with a population of 70,000 Assyrians, require more than 20 Artesian wells to supply the water needs of the residents. Each well typically costs about $30,000 to install, with operating crews and generators. $600,000 is required to install these wells.

Donations have come forth. The Christian Endowment will finance 4 wells; the Consulate of The United Arab Emirates has pledged money for 4 wells.

The Hammurabi Human Rights Organization, an NGO based in Baghdad, has stated that it is prepared to begin installing wells pending funding.

If water shortage crisis is not resolved soon, Assyrians will be forced to abandon their homes and villages and move to areas where they can find water.” Source – AINA News.

Flashback: Iraq: ISIS Stops Christians From Selling Homes, Kills Real Estate Agents For Doing Business With Them – “The Assyrians have been prevented by Daash from selling their homes. Daash has killed real estate agents who do business with Christians. Unidentified gunmen assassinated the owner of the Zouhour Real Estates agency after he brokered the sale of a Christian house. Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source at the Nineveh Operation Command said that ‘ten real estate agents have been killed between 2013 and 2014, most recently the owner of El Nour Realty Office in the region of Mouhandiseen after he was kidnapped and beheaded for selling the house of a Christian family.’” Read more.

ISIS: We Will Focus On Nearby Infidels First, Then We Will Focus On Israel – “According to Israel’s Channel 2 News, an ISIS spokesman said Monday on Twitter, in response to questions about the organization’s intentions with regards to Israel, that ISIS first has to deal with ‘Muslims who have become infidels’. ‘The greatest answer to this question is in the Qur’an, where Allah speaks about the nearby enemy – those Muslims who have become infidels – as they are more dangerous than those which were already infidels,’ the spokesman tweeted, according to Channel 2 News.” Read more.

    The growth and power of the “Islamic State” is stunning–from relatively obscure to a recognized, regional player in a month. They have put out a map and timeline for Caliphate that is eerily similar to what we find in End Times Bible passages:

    Rev 6:8, “I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.”

    Rev 13:4,5, “they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” 5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him

    This map and article
    describe the Islamic State’s geographic conquest aims and their timeline to achieve them–its very close to 1/4 of the earth, both by population and area, stretching the nearly the length of the “10-40 Window”. And they believe they can achieve their goal in 5 years. Judging by their recent speed overtaking large areas of Syria and Iraq its not unreasonable to wonder if they could achieve it in 3-4 years.

    Though Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has a $10 million bounty on his head, formally being in US custody, if he continues to gain strength its hard to imagine the US carrying out a raid intended to kill him if he takes on the mantle of head of the Islamic State. Already on Twitter we are constantly seeing a stream of Muslims giving him bayah or Islamic allegiance due to the Caliph, the spiritual/governmental/military head of the Ummah, the worldwide Muslim populace.

    One thing is for sure, we need to be praying for our suffering brethren under the control of IS–deliverance yes, but faithfulness to the end. We know there will be a reward in the coming kingdom of Messiah. And we need to pray for Israel–biblically its apparent that great suffering is headed their way. Father, give your people peace, and let them see and know the Prince of Peace, Christ Jesus.

    It’s an unofficial map, but certainly a goal that they would love to attain. These are very sobering times.
