They blew up all of the buildings in Arabsiyo, poisoned the wells, destroyed the orchards, and killed many of the inhabitants. They buried land mines throughout the area. Like the tenacious desert, the villagers slowly returned, but life will never be simple in Arabsiyo again. I wrote this book to record the history of this little village."
