    Aida camp established by the UN in the north part of Bethlehem in 1950 to accommodate some of the Palestinian refugees turned out of their homes by the Israeli military in 1948. There is now the 28 foot security wall built alongside and since 2012 there has been daily clashes between kids throwing stones at the wall and the military firing tear gas and skunk water into the camp. The wall was built to facilitate the confiscation of Palestrina land and the illegal building of "Jews only" settlements. So far there are 22 illegal Jewish settlements surrounding Bethlehem. There remains only 13% of the land of Bethlehem for the Palestinians!

Israelis fear Bethlehem's radicalized residents, who seethe at the concrete wall that surrounds them. This is not how Mary and Joseph came into Bethlehem, but this is how you enter now. You wait at the wall. It's a daunting concrete barricade, three stories high, thorned with razor wire. Standing beside it, you feel as if you're at the base of a dam. Israeli soldiers armed with assault rifles examine your papers. They search your vehicle. No Israeli civilian, by military order, is allowed in. And few Bethlehem residents are permitted out—the reason the wall exists here, according to the Israeli government, is to keep terro...

I studied for and received my first bachelors degree in the ancient history of the Holy Land, and am presently completing my studies for my second degree.(Masters) Parralel to my studies, and in order to earn a living, I was employed for many years in advertising. What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.

An additional three-thousand entry permits were approved by Israel for workers and citizens trying to get from the West Bank town into Israel. The move, seen by some as a goodwill gesture, came as Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was in Washington preparing to meet US President George W Bush. Bush, who met Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas on Friday, is attempting to shore up support for the faltering US-backed peace plan for the region. Along with an easing of travel restrictions for Palestinians, other contentious issues, such as the security fence being built by Israel, will be discussed. The barrier sweeps into Palestinian areas of the West Bank to encircle Jewish settlements Palestinians say the project amounts to a land grab that cuts them off from agricultural fields, towns and jobs. The issue of settlement activity will also be discussed at the meeting in Washington. Despite assurances by Sharon that the settlements would be removed, many illegal settlement outposts remain in the West Bank.

Taken From http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/2007-12/bethlehem/finkel-text.html The birthplace of Jesus is today one of the most contentious places on Earth. Israelis fear Bethlehem's radicalized residents, who seethe at the concrete wall that surrounds them. This is not how Mary and Joseph came into Bethlehem, but this is how you enter now. You wait at the wall. It's a daunting concrete barricade, three stories high, thorned with razor wire. Standing beside it, you feel as if you're at the base of a dam. Israeli soldiers armed with assault rifles examine your papers. They search your vehicle. No Israeli civilian, by military order, is allowed in. And few Bethlehem residents are permitted out—the reason the wall exists here, according to the Israeli government, is to keep terrorists away from Jerusalem. Bethlehem and Jerusalem are only six miles apart (ten kilometers), though in the compressed and fractious geography of the region, this places them in different realms. It can take a month for a postcard to go from one city to the other. Bethlehem is in the West Bank, on land taken by Israel during the Six Day War of 1967. It's a Palestinian city; the majority of its 35,000 residents are Muslim. In 1900, more than 90 percent of the city was Christian. Today Bethlehem is only about one-third Christian, and this proportion is steadily shrinking as Christians leave for Europe or the Americas. At least a dozen suicide bombers have come from the city and surrounding district. The truth is that Bethlehem, the "little town" venerated during Christmas, is one of the most contentious places on Earth. If you're cleared to enter, a sliding steel door, like that on a boxcar, grinds open. The soldiers step aside, and you drive through the temporary gap in the wall. Then the door slides back, squealing on its track, booming shut. You're in Bethlehem. The city, at the scrabbly hem of the Judaean desert, is built over several broad, flat-topped hills, stingy with vegetation. The older homes are made of pale yellow stone, wedged along steep, narrow streets. A couple of battered taxis ply the roads, drivers heavy on the horns. At an outdoor stall, lamb meat rotates on a spit, dripping fat. Men sit on plastic chairs and sip from small glasses of thick Arabic coffee. There's an odor of uncollected garbage. As you work your way up the hill, you can see the scope of the wall and chart its ongoing expansion—a gray snake, segmented by cylindrical guard towers, methodically constricting the city. Inside the wall, along Bethlehem's borders, are three Palestinian refugee camps, boxy apartments heaped atop one another in haphazard piles. Every breeze through the camps' alleys ruffles the corners of hundreds of martyrs' posters—young men, staring impassively, some gripping M-16s. Many are victims of the Israel Defense Forces. Others have blown themselves up in an Israeli mall or restaurant or bus. Arabic text on the posters extols the greatness of these deeds. Just outside the wall, dominating the surrounding high points and ridges, are sprawling Jewish settlements, skewered with construction cranes, feverishly growing. Late in the afternoon the sun glints off the settlement buildings and Bethlehem seems circled by fire.

Today, there was hundreds of confrontations between the power of states (armed to the teeth) with peaceful, unarmed demonstrators in cities like Hebron (Palestine), Tripoli Libya), Faluja (Iraq), Amman (Jordan), Aden (Yemen), Manama (Bahrain), and other places. HUndreds of people were injured, many were killed (especially in Libya). I joined the large demonstration in the old city of Al-Khalil/Hebron that is commemorating the day 17 years ago when a Jewish settler massacred worshippers in the Haram Ibrahimi (and this racist act was supported by the Israeli authorities because they followed it by expanding the colonial Jewish settlement and restricting Palestinian more (i.e. strengthening racism). Despite attempts by Israeli forces to encircle the city and prevent demonstrators from arriving, over 100 people came from around the west Bank (and many Internationals) to join the over 200-300 local people. THe Israeli army would not even let us assemble peacefully and started to use tear gas and concussion grenades (some of the gas drifted in the soldier's direction ;-). A back and forth ensued when demonstrators stood the ground and regrouped to advance again (at least three times). I included a short but powerful video from Hebron event today in the second half of this video which also include segments of our demonstration in Bethlehem in support of Egyptian and other Arab people (Feb. 13, note Palestinian security officers tried to stop us) and a demonstration last Friday (Feb. 18) in Al-Ma'sara.

PSLC and Bethlehem Schools Propose Settlement in Federal Suit The Bethlehem Area School Board is proposing a settlement in a federal lawsuit against the district. The Pennsylvania Statewide Latino Coalition has been challenging the way school board members get elected. WFMZ's Stephanie Esposito has the details. A line of taxpayers formed at the podium to voice their opinion on Sis Obed Torres. The Hispanic community is passionate about having Latino representation after they lost the last open seat. Two of the Latina women not selected for the position filed a lawsuit against Bethlehem Area School District, saying the method of picking school board members is discriminatory. The Bethlehem Area School District would not go on camera, but described their proposal to settle. They claim the plaintiff says they should have nine separate districts. After mediation, the proposed resolution is to have three separate election districts, so three people would be elected by district and six would be elected at large. Sis Obed-Torres' wife was one of the women who filed the lawsuit. He is one of five people to interview for the open school board seat. Tonight there was a motion for Torres to fill the empty seat until the next election. TORRES: Lots of skills including listening, the ability to read and write, and study issues, and to dialogue, and the ability to disagree respectfully if that is called for. REPORTER: Torres said having Hispanic representation could be a bridge between the community and the school. TORRES: Parents come to us over the years alleging discrimination. Sometimes there has been discrimination; sometimes there is a language issue or a misunderstanding. a propuesta ya está sobre la mesa pero ahora la Junta Escolar de Bethlehem tiene que decidir si la acepta o no. Hace dos años, la Coalición Latina de Pensilvania demandó a la Junta alegando que ésta sigue un proceso de elección de miembros que no favorece a la población latina. Ahora la Junta discute la propuesta que según la Coalición habrá de corregir el problema.

In another incident near Nablus, in the village of Ijnsnia light clashes broke out as the Israeli army prevented Palestinians from passing a road. Civilians who had gathered to try to pass along the main road to Nablus scattered as the army opened fire. In Bethlehem another demonstration marking the anniversary of Ali Abu Mustafa was held. During the demonstration the model of a settlement was set on fire, as masked demonstrators shot bullets in the air.

The Minister for Public Security has visited the site, defending the measure as the only way to protect innocent Israeli civilians. Behind this razor wire, lies Har Homa, an Israeli settlement on the outskirts of Jerusalem. It's in a controversial location, in an area Palestinians claim is their land. Israeli authorities argue erecting the new fence will help protect innocent Israeli civilians living in such settlements, from attacks by Palestinians. The 9-foot-high barbed-wire fence also separates the Palestinian town of Beit Jalla from the Jewish settlement of Gilo. Israeli forces in armoured vehicles regularly patrol the entire perimeter between Jerusalem and Bethlehem day and night, on the lookout for any suspicious activity. They've also dug a broad trench, about six feet deep, that runs alongside the fence. But while the fence appears embedded in the landscape, the Israeli government argues it will not be a permanent border. During a visit to the site Israel's Public Security Minister Uzi Landau, defended the measure as the most effective method of stopping terrorists from entering Israeli cities. SOUNDBITE (English) Uzi Landau, Israeli Public Security Minister: "Nobody is speaking about the border. We are speaking here about how to protect the municipal area - the highly populated area of the civilian population of Jerusalem." But Palestinians are far from convinced. They believe Israel is making permanent what was to supposed to have been a temporary emergency measure. Many now fear the fence may become like a Berlin Wall in the region. SOUNDBITE (English) Uzi Landau, Israeli Public Security Minister: "We are putting here some obstacles in order to facilitate the ability of our security forces to intercept suicide bombers and others who wish to come into the city and continue with their deliberate killing of innocent people here. So we do whatever is necessary but no Berlin walls here." Meanwhile, the violence continues to escalate, creating divisions between Israelis and Palestinians that grow deeper by the day.
