a good article about Bethlehem

There was an article on Bethlehem in the December National Geographic which really tried to play up the "tension between Christians and Muslims" that has largely been manufactured by the media. Here is a better article from the Independent in the UK. It also makes reference to Banksy's return to Bethlehem and his new murals. One of them, the one of the donkey getting his ID papers checked, was actually painted over by the locals because to THEM it meant that Palestinians (who get their IDs checked all the time by Israeli soldiers) are like donkeys, which is a pretty big insult 'round these parts.

Anyway, see the Independent article here:
