    The Carmel Mountain is no desert. Jewish pioneers planted the fast-growing firs because the corrupt, indolent Turkish overlords had allowed the the entire area to become deforested. Once the mountain became green again, other, mainly native, species were introduced. They grow more slowly but are gradually replacing the firs. Melissa, your anti-Israel rants are becoming tedious. Please try to be more constructive with your criticism.
