Since when is the Holy Land holy to Arabs? I daily see Arabs prostrate themsellves with their faces toward Mecca, and their upraised behinds to Yerushalayim. The only interest Arabs have shown in the Land of Israel is destructive. They hate the land and they hate the only people who truly love and cherish the Land, those who made it the Holy Land: The Hebrews. But more than anything they hate the trees and forests planted by Jews, so that every time the hot wind blows from the deserts of Arabia, arson follows it as day follows a night.
