Celebrating Christmas in Bethlehem, Palestine

The people of Palestine also celebrate. They need to, as any other people would need to celebrate.

(BETHLEHEM) - In this time of year, people around the world celebrate.

They celebrate the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem Palestine.

They celebrate a birth that was meant to propagate a set of ideals to make the world a better place. 2010 years later, that same birthplace is plagued by a regime that practices the exact opposite of those ideals.

Bethlehem is surrounded by a racist wall of biblical proportions, by regime which is racist to biblical proportions. Yet people celebrate.

But that is OK. The people of Palestine also celebrate. They need to, as any other people would need to celebrate. After all it is the season to make exceptions.

In this season, people make exceptions when it comes to their spending, to their diets, to the way they treat each other. So it is only logical to make an exception by putting an effort for the land, the homes and people of the birthplace of Christmas... for justice in Palestine...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
