Bethlehem, Israel

//Bethlehem, Israel

Oh, little town of Bethlehem, a city in the West Bank under Palestinian Authority control.  Israelis are not allowed in the boundaries of its West Bank Area A designation.   In the midst of this turmoil lies the Church of the Nativity, recognized as the birthplace of Jesus Christ.   Biblical scholars now believe that Jesus was born in a cave, not a barn-like structure.  That barn was an early translation error.  So… there are a whole lot of Christmas lyrics that need rewriting!
