Ex-mayor of Bethlehem: Israel enforcing Christian exodus from Bethlehem (E824)
We speak to former Mayor of Bethlehem Vera Baboun for our special Christmas episode. She discusses the building of the wall around Bethlehem by Israel, the ongoing illegal occupation of Palestinian land by Israel, how Israel’s policies have caused an exodus of Christians from Bethlehem, the need for a return to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and more.
Next, we speak to legendary composer Howard Blake on his career, how he composed the score for ‘The Snowman’, including the iconic song ‘Walking in The Air’, his activism over the years, other pieces he has composed including for the United Nations and Princess Diana. He plays us out with ‘Walking in the Air’.
The United Nations declined to comment.
