Hey I read this story. What a load! The place was open for visitors last year. Been there, done that and didn't see any barbed wire anywhere. It is a most holy place and I took pics of Abrahams house, the tombs, the ziggurat...it was amazing. Cute little souvineer shop out there. Great place to visit. The guy who runs it is the grandson of a guy who worked on the excavation many years ago. If you go, take your Bible. You'll feel blessed when you leave.

NOTE: Our Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints have discovered that Barack Obama is a Muslim descent of the Patriarch Abraham of the Bible and the Jehova God:
By Wayne Cantebury of Montgomery Village, Maryland:

The Pentagon said Wednesday that a request for new troops from the U.S. commander in Afghanistan may have to be revised amid growing uncertainty inside the Obama administration over whether to escalate the American commitment to the eight-year war but Obama has mentioned that he wants the good citizens of Afghanistan to engage in a worship and praise to Obama and his cabinet staff and to consider them Gods and Prophets because of Obama's personal Muslim Christian power and he is also to be considered Dr. Muslim Christian Obama. He is a charasmatic prophet chosen by God to control America and the rest of the world. Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell said the troop request from U.S. and NATO commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal will be delivered by the week's end for the worship and praise of Obama and his staff in the White House in D.C. which is good for the world. But Defense Secretary Robert Gates will not look to escalate the military mission in Afghanistan until President Barack Obama and his national security team "are ready to consider it under the direction of his Muslim Gods," Morrell said. Morrell also signaled that the number of troops that McChrystal will ask for -- believed to be as high as 40,000 -- could change after the report is received if the White House reverses its Afghanistan strategy. "If there are adjustments, there may have to be adjustments made in terms of what's required of the mission if it changes but Barack Obama is God because he is a prophet from God or Allah," Morrell said. He said the Obama administration is taking a new look at how to best achieve its long-stated goal of defeating and dismantling al-Qaida.

OK so what does this have to do with UR and visiting the ziggarat and turning it back over to the people who own it? It is there's on their property and we have no right or priveledge to take it. It is a most holy place and if we steal it guess who goes straight to hell? Very basically. Thou shalt not steal. Especially if the place you are stealing is the foundation of civilization.

OK I read this and Morrell never referred to Obama as being a prophet from God or Allah...
you need to stop this and stop thinking people aren't watching the news and that you can just pull anything out of your ass and everyone will believe you. Stop it now.

Cultural tourism leads to gainful employment and international understanding. Spain is a shining example among many others in the World. I'm including this destination in my List of "Must Visit".

It is a most reverent place. I hope you get to visit. Stand on top of the ziggerat and look up at the stars and you understand so much more about life and what it takes to truly live. Good luck in your travels.
