Palestinian Christians not having such a Merry Christmas

In the politicalization of the Palestinian - Israeli conflict, one may deduce that this conflict is a conflict between Islam vs Judaism. However, media attention glosses over the fact that about one in five Palestinians are Christians, who have resided in Palestine for centuries. Bethlehem, the birth place of the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, is in Palestine, right?

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has been touring the "Holy Land" where he has been highly critical of the apartheid wall that separates families from other relatives and makes pilgrimage to holy sites an extreme burden on Palestinian Christians.

Palestinian Christians are equally oppossed to the illegal occupation in Palestine just as the Palestinian Muslims.
