Celebrating the Birth of the State of Palestine

Dears Sisters and Brothers in Humanity, 
In this historical moment of peace and rejoice, we say THANK YOU for all the nations and peoples who voted for the right of us Palestinians to live in dignity and enjoy our existence to its fullness. Only courageous hearts can bring change, and you are one among them.   November 30, 2012 will start with Palestine announced as a non-member observatory state. In Christmas season, we continuously celebrate in Bethlehem the bliss of birth and rebirth. Bethlehem as  the rest of the Palestinian cities is celebrating now the birth of the state of Palestine. At the moment, Children, youth, and elders are rejoicing the victory of humanity in bringing justice to the Palestinians. To all the courageous hearts who supported our dream of liberty and justice to become a reality, I say:    
Joy to the World, [when JUSTICE] reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.
  Vera Ghattas Baboun
   Mayor of Bethlehem
