There are cities in Iraq and neighbouring Syria watered by both the Tigris and Euphrates, the city of Basra in particular (not far from the ancient city of Ur). For a pope these days to be in any city in the "land between two rivers" (Iraq) is death!
a result of the campaign of mass death carried out by either Bashar al-Assad or ISIS.
I can find no evidence of a holy mountain associated with Christianity existing anywhere in Iraq or Syria!
Could the mountain somehow be symbolic, a metaphor for the tribulation of the Holy Church and Christendom?
This conflict may well be the ongoing Before any of that happens, there is a prophecy relating to a visiting pope: one who travels to a city watered by two rivers.
Nostradamus has identified the "land between two rivers" in certain other quatrains as an anti-Christian leader, who at this time would most likely be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State (IS), will order the Pope and everyone in his entourage to be gunned down during a visit to a river port city in Iraq or possibly in Syria.
