BETHLEHEM LIGHTS UP FOR CHRISTMAS | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

BETHLEHEM LIGHTS UP FOR CHRISTMAS

We just had the Christmas tree lighting in the Manger Square, Bethlehem and it was beautiful. It was appropriate to reflect on challenges and
opportunities in the ongoing struggle. If we believe that Jesus brought the message of peace, the tumult in his era seems remarkably similar yo this era of occupation, repression, religious zealotry, corrupt leaders etc.

Yet, 2014 could be summed up as the year in which the parameters of the
struggle where made much clearer. It is a struggle between the elite rich who have increasingly pushed for more police and military to protect their gains and suppress the 99.9% of the world that is suffering. From Ferguson to Gaza to Kobani, the struggle continues.
