Bethlehem, the city of Jesus' birth, is under occupation. All its residents, including Palestinian Christians, are suffering.
Behind the wall that separates neighbor from neighbor, patient from hospital, student from school and farmer from land, Palestinian Christians will continue to bear witness to their faith this Christmas, as they have done for generations. Let us join our voices with theirs in seeking and offering hope for a better future.
