    BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) — Bethlehem's first female mayor, Vera Baboun, can't walk through the main square of the biblical town without being stopped by admirers.

    "This is our new mayor, who is turning Bethlehem into one of the greatest cities in the world," a tour guide hollered to a group of Christian tourists passing by the Church of the Nativity, built over the grotto where tradition says Jesus was born.

    Why, Tinnie, it looks like all the Christians in the area will be having a good Christmas.

    What do these fake Christians think about Israel driving the Christians out of the holy land?

    Why, Tinnie old boy, these Christians you say are fake are the real McCoy. Evidently you have not read any of the articles about Christians in Bethlehem and what they said about how they were treated by Muslims. It's very nice how the mayor is trying to be nice to the Christians living there, but on a day-to-day basis, I don't think the Christians are actually treated that nicely by the Muslims according to what some Christians living there had to say. And, Tinnie, these Christians you call fake, believe the Jews belong there. And they see how the Christians are able to follow their beliefs in Israel, unlike the way they are not allowed to follow their beliefs in Muslim countries but are harassed and murdered. Don't worry, Tinnie, your "Palestinian" friends think you are doing such a admirable job that you probably will find a little extra bonus from them in your Christmas stocking. Maybe they will also even gift you with a new up-to-date magic computer that really isn't there.

    Of course that is a deflection from my question.

    Your question is a bald faced lie.

    So what does the video really prove, Tinnie. Of course with all the Christian tourists coming into the area for Christmas to visit where Jesus was born, those running Bethlehem are going to put on a show for them. Don't forget that there are Christmas celebrations in Israel too. Perhaps you can also pull up some video which shows us how Saudi Arabia celebrates Christmas for the Christian workers. Do they even allow a wreathe on the door of Christians? If anyone knows, it should be Tinnie. Meanwhile, a better video to watch is..........
