Machmadim in the Old Testament

For future reference:

but about this time tomorrow I will send my servants to you, and they will search your house and the houses of your servants; and whatever is desirable[כָּל־מַחְמַ֣ד] in your eyes, they will take in their hand and carry away...
(1 Kings 20:6)

Then they burned the house of God and broke down the wall of Jerusalem, and burned all its fortified buildings with fire and destroyed all its valuable[מַחֲמַדֶּ֖יהָ] articles.
(2 Chronicles 36:19)

His mouth is full of sweetness
And he is wholly desirable[מַחֲמַדִּ֑ים].
This is my beloved and this is my friend,
O daughters of Jerusalem.
(Song of Solomon 5:16)

Our holy and beautiful house,
Where our fathers praised You,
Has been burned by fire;
And all our precious[וְכָל־מַחֲמַדֵּ֖ינוּ] things have become a ruin.
(Isaiah 64:11)

UPDATE (August 8, 2010):

Upon calling out a certain Muslim on YouTube by the name of "BeholderGuard" for his misuse of Song of Solomon 5:16, he apparently didn't get the hint, and completely missed the point. See this example of sheer idiocy to see how flimsy the Muslim argument really is.
