JD: David I know that we’re coming up to Christmas and there’s going to be just hundreds and thousands of Pilgrims from all across the world coming to the little town of Bethlehem. Talk just briefly about their high alert security wise their and tell us about your favorite Christmas memory.

DD: Well Jimmy the alert is extra high this year because of course we’ve had in the recent weeks and really all year and there was some more incidents this week. So security is full on alert. And you know they don’t let anybody drive into Bethlehem you have to take a bus in and everybody is screened very very carefully at the Israeli-Palestinian border if you will. There really is a border checkpoint there south of Jerusalem.
