If Bethlehem is in Palestine, does that make Jesus Palestinian?

Modern-day Christmas rides on the tradition of the birth of Jesus on December 25th.
Interesting that the Holy Lands, which have produced 3 of the world’s major religions (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) is in such a state of turmoil. Things haven’t changed much I guess. There is still much work to be done here to bring about some peace.

The Holy Lands are comprised of Israel, Western Jordan, the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt and southern Syria. These places were the sites where biblical events in the Old and New Testament were said to have taken place. With a rich history, sacred monuments and an ancient vibe the Holy Lands are worth a visit, if you can get there safely.
