Christmas In Bethlehem 2007

Oh, come all ye faithful. Breaking the relative peace:

“Palestinian policemen try to control a fight that erupted between Greek Orthodox deacons and Armenian priests during the annual cleaning of the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank town of Bethlehem. Seven people were injured.” [source]

Meanwhile, larger beasts still linger:

“On the eve of Monday’s negotiations, Israel’s Construction Ministry unveiled a proposal to build 500 homes in Har Homa and 240 in the Maale Adumim settlement near Jerusalem next year.” [source]
