Holy Land - On the Other Side of the Wall
According to the December 2007 issue of National Geographic Magazine, in 1900 Bethlehem was 90% Christian. Today it is less than 30% and shrinking.
Call it part of a modern exodus, the steady flight of the tiny Palestinian Christian minority that could lead, some predict, to the faith being virtually extinct in its birthplace within several generations.
The native Palestinian Christian population has dipped below 2 percent of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Arab East Jerusalem, down from at least 15 percent in 1950 by some estimates.
This film considers the situation of Palestinian Christians in Israel and the reality of Christian exodus. And yet, the film also reveals the effort of some Christian communities work to stay in the cradle of Christianity and the call to members of the universal Church to help Christian stay in the land of their birthright.
