Walled Nativity Set for A Free Christmas

Do you own a Nativity set? I bopught one in Bethlehem a few years ago and then I have put it somewhere so well that I could not find it last Christmas.

After some new search and an idea from my wife I have found it and we will have a Nativity set (or Creche, as the French call it) this Christmas. But it is not about my Nativity set that I want to talk to you, but about a very spacial one: a walled Nativity set – testimony of the hideous Israeli apartheid wall that has transformed Bethlehem into a ghetto.

Any of you who is interested could order this set HERE.

(I thank my friend Rob Kilpatrick for this link.)

If the wall was there at the time of Jesus, the shepherds and the magi would have never seen the new born Saviour of the world..

This is precisely the theme of the sad song below.
