program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

As Christians around the world prepare for the annual Christmas holiday, Christians who live in Bethlehem say that their plight has been neglected and forgotten. Christian Palestinians have lived in Bethlehem since the time of Christ, but have faced dislocation and repression since Israel was created in 1948.

This hour, we examine the situation of Bethlehem today, including a report on al-Wallaja village, which is a Christian Palestinian village located just outside of Bethlehem, produced by Ghassan Bannoura and Hazem Jamjoum; an interview with Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh of Bethlehem University; and a report on solidarity ‘From Brooklyn to Bethlehem’.
