Iraqi government declares Christmas a ‘national holiday’


Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

 
The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

 
The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.
 

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

Good news: The Iraqi government has declared Christmas a ‘national holiday’.

    Something good finally came of that damned war.

    We will see.

    This could inflame the terrorists again and cause many more of the last Christians in that country to be killed.

    But they did not call it Christmas or make it a Christian only holiday. Its just a day of rest for now. At the most it can only be called a day to honor the profit Jesus.

  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When it comes to the Iraq War and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, we have nothing to apologize for. The Iraq war was just, right, and a success. It was done for moral reasons on our part, and accomplished its goals spectacularly.

    Sadly, when it comes to this conflict, too many Americans have allowed themselves to buy into the lies of the left. Just because these propagandists claim the war was evil does not make it so. They were wrong about practically everything they said about the war, before, during, and after. There is no reason to even listen to them.

    Which interestingly is a good description as well of their claims about Obamacare, before, during, and after. Revealing, ain’t it?

    One of the biggest lies about the Iraq war was that it has lasted 10 years. It was one of the shortest most successful wars in history and lasted barely two weeks. The sailors hung the “mission accomplished banner precisely because the MISSION WAS ACCOMPLISHED! What was bungled from the very beginning was the Iraq OCCUPATION. Mainly because the “previous occupant” tried to allay fears that the US was going to be occupying a muslim country and refused to call it what it was
