Bethlehem tourism up

Bethlehem tourism is up this year due to a decrease in violence. This is good news for the west bank and for Christians. Hotels are sold out and four new ones are under construction. 90,000 visitors are expected during the Christmas season this year, up from 70,000 the year before. I wonder how many are visiting the Bethlehem maternity hospital.

Tis the season!

Will I allowed to say "Merry Christmas" on the proposed government-controlled internets?

I hope to be in Jerusalem and Bethlehem at Christmas at least once. This is very good news.
