An Occupational Christmas

Could you live like the Palestinians?

Jerusalem ban angers Christians
From the video: Jerusalem ban angers Christians

(BETHLEHEM) - I was prevented from entering Jerusalem despite a claim by the Israeli authorities that all Christians can go to Jerusalem during the Holidays. For information on this see the video below, Jerusalem ban angers Christians. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyC1-5788AI)

Also this Haaretz article: Israel has 101 different types of permits governing Palestinian movement. (http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/news/israel-has-101-different-types-of-permits-governing-palestinian-movement-1.403039

But we had great functions around Bethlehem that highlighted and challenged the apartheid system.

This video captures the contrasting images in my mind of suffering and plenty this Christmas http://vimeo.com/34148792
