Despite New Violence in Gaza, Bethlehem Is Crowded with Tourists

Hosted by

After six months of relative calm, Hamas unleashed new attacks from Gaza into Israel last Friday, and with both sides in the midst of their own domestic struggles, they're exchanging threats. In a protest against the Israeli blockade, the head of Gaza's 300-member Roman Catholic community canceled Midnight Mass this Christmas Eve. But in the city where Christ was born, it's a different story. Joshua Mitnick is based in Tel Aviv for the Christian Science Monitor.
