Holy City of Najaf

Of late whenever the media refers to the city of Najaf, Iraq it's often "the holy city of Najaf." At least it's thought to be holy to millions of Shia and Sunni Muslims in Iraq, Arab and Muslim countries. Owing to the fact Islam is the antithesis of holy, it's not surprising the pluralistic-friendly American media has upheld that Najafian moniker. Ironically, "the earth is the Lord's," which in an ultimate sense makes Najaf the property of Jesus Christ. To that extent Najaf is holy, despite it's temporary lack of a strong Christian presence.
These observations were recorded in the holy city of Tampa, Florida by Saint Scott.
