"All well to find fertile land,but what of the few inhabitants unable to profit from its fertility" J ... if Twain states: "the narrow canyon in which Nablous, or Shechem, is situated, in under high cultivation " then pray tell, by *whom* was it under high cultivation by? The point is, attaching too much significance to Twains comments on Palestine after his brief visit to some few sites of biblical note is a bit like asking a tourist who has been on a weekend trip to Honk Kong for a detailed analysis of Chinese geography and culture. P.S Glad to see you took my advice on spell-check.
