Dear UNESCO, Put the Church of the Nativity On Your List

This week, history will revisit the Church of the Nativity as UNESCO's World Heritage Committee convenes in St. Petersburg, Russia, to consider whether the birthplace of Jesus should be recognized as a world heritage site. Palestinians await with anticipation the decision in St. Petersburg this week to share this valuable cultural, religious and historical heritage with all the peoples of the world.
