That was before the land was colonized and overbuilt by people from abroad, people who have ruined the once beautiful landscape with ugly cookie cutter settlements and concrete highways, people who have destroyed the hundreds of thousands of olive trees that gave fruit to the land, people who have built an ugly wall to shut out the people who were here before them. Surely the once beautiful land of millk and honey is beautiful no more. And it is going getting worse. The shepherds of old who tended their flocks on the hills would weep if they could see their lands today.
