Like his cousin, he believes whatever it is, isn’t good. When his mother discovers it completely by accident in her search for another piece of their heritage, it turns out to be worse than he expected. But what concerns him more is his suspicions that his mother is hiding something from him. Something he feels certain has to do with the secrets Jeremy Delahass left behind for them to find. For the moment he’s more than willing to wait until she’s ready to tell him but he can’t help but wonder…and worry.

And as he prepared himself for what they might find he knew too it wasn’t just enough to know there was a puzzle they were meant to put together. It was all about finding the pieces.

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings – Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes – are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the fall of man, early human civilization, and the great flood. Sadly, today’s Kurds and Persians know little of their sacred history. This book is an attempt to re-introduce them to their rich inheritance, namely, the revelation of the Most High God, and to enlighten readers from other cultures who would also like an encounter with the central character of human history.

The narrative has been shrouded in secrecy, with the basic belief presented that below the airport are underground bunkers and tunnels, for the New World Order of the elite population, to be used as their headquarters in an apocalyptic event. This book is an examination into these proposed theories concerning the history behind the airport, including necessity and funding, strange artwork murals, statues and sculptures, floor carvings, dedication marker and time capsule, symbolic runway designs, bunkers, and tunnels. The summary of the evidence will allow the reader to calculate their own conclusions and determine further research on this highly debated matter.
