IS-areas in Iraq will be carpet bombed with small electronic devices, loaded with both the Bible in Arabic, and simple information on "how to get to know Jesus." Behind the initiative is the Swedish Christian congregation "Livets Ord," reports the Swedish newspaper Världen idag.
The somewhat different bombing will occur with large drones that can fly at high altitudes and over large areas.
"The drones have been adapted in a way so that they can carry Bibles. They will fly over IS-controlled areas in Iraq and release the Bibles to IS-soldiers," says the Missionary Department of Livets Ord.
Small electronic devices, about the size of a standard matchbox, will include the Bible in Arabic and straightforward explanations of how to get to know and accept Jesus, writes the newspaper. The units do not need to be plugged into a computer or such, but are completely independent. These small devices can be dropped from a high altitude without breaking, and will be spread over areas that the Islamic State controls in Iraq. The hope is to reach IS with the Christian gospel, it says.
The bombing will be conducted in cooperation with another organization, but Livets Ord will not reveal yet which organization it is.
"We will start our project in a few weeks and hope to drop thousands of Bibles," said Pastor Joakim Lundqvist, as he revealed the plans during Saturday evening's meeting of the European Conference in Uppsala.
The cost of each unit is about SEK 150 ($18), according to Livets Ord.
