Invece di canzoni, cartoline d’auguri o lettere, per concludere quest’anno ecco un racconto di viaggio di Aleem Maqbool, giornalista della BBC, che ripercorre la strada da Nazareth a Betlemme.
“Why are you standing there with a donkey?” said an old Palestinian man.
“This is a nice modern city, and you’re standing there with a donkey! What are you trying to say? What’s wrong with you?”
Clearly, not everyone was as happy as I was to meet my new travelling companion in the centre of the city of Jenin.
The old man thought I was trying to show Jenin as a backward place. He refused to accept the nativity explanation, and went on his way muttering about how deceptive the foreign media is.
