An Ordinary Palm Sunday

On that same day, one of my good friends from the US was making his first visit to Israel and Jerusalem, discovering the city, its history, architecture, its smells and colors.
Funny thing -- did I say "funny"?--because he's Jewish, he could apply for citizenship and move to Jerusalem tomorrow. Birthright, some call it.
Those people--on the video below--are from the land; have been for generations.
On Palm Sunday, they tried to walk from the Church of the Nativity (Bethlehem) to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (Jerusalem).

To my US friends, please tell me: how do you feel about paying taxes to turn Bethlehem into a prison?

Please watch. Listen to the comments after the first 4 minutes.
