Christmas, Peace, and the Wall: The Segregation Wall and Checkpoints in and around Bethlehem

December 2012 Voices from the South Newsletter

As the Christmas season begins in many parts of the world, hearts and minds turn to the Palestinian city of Bethlehem: the focal geographic point of the Christmas narrative. Yet today, this not-so-little town is sieged by a tightening separation wall, checkpoints, and a system of control brought on by the ongoing Israeli occupation of Palestine.

In this month’s “Voices from the South,” Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb of Kairos Palestine offers his reflections on Christmas, the current facts on the ground, and a call to work for peace and justice in the region.  The newsletter can be found in full.
