The Vicar of Baghdad: ‘I’ve looked through the Quran trying to find forgiveness… there isn’t any.’

Canon Andrew White, the vicar of Baghdad, is not, in person, at all as I’d imagined him. His memoir, about life as first a medic, then a cleric, is chock-a-block with famous friends. Pope John Paul II was a pal, the Grand Ayatollah of Baghdad, General David Petraeus. ‘Oh, Andrew knows everyone,’ I was told when I asked anyone about him, and I’m afraid my heart hardened. I arrived in the rain at his house in Liphook, Hampshire, preparing myself for a vain man, full of his own derring-do.

    This is an entirely different story but it does relate to Iraq. With most of Iraq controlled by the third world barbarians ISIS there are plans by some to build the world’s tallest skyscraper in Basra, Iraq. That’s right Iraq, not Qatar or UAE or Indonesia but Iraq. Even with all their oil reserves in Iraq how are they getting the money to build this skyscraper?
