Why are Christians leaving Bethlehem?

Though Bethlehem is enjoying unprecedented financial and tourism growth, the city's Christian residents are emigrating abroad in droves • Cultural and religious suffocation in a mostly Muslim city, persecution and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are only some of the reasons • Christians feel like they are trapped in a cultural and religious ghetto.
