A Palestinian city in the West Bank with a vibrant history. Bethlehem is considered by many to be the birthplace of Jesus. It has been home to one of the largest Christian communities in the Arab World for centuries and is a popular spot of tourism. In Arabic Bethlehem is بيت لحم (BAYT LA-hem) and means "city of meat" or "city of bread". It has been under the rule of the Palestinian Authority since 1995, however the city remains vulnerable to increasing Israeli settlements as well as the separation wall Israel is building.

According to the International Court of Justice, Bethlehem is in Palestine not in Israel, so please stop saying Bethlehem is in Israel when it's not. Study the United Nations Charter and Geneva Convention if you think otherwise.
Samira went to Bethlehem this Christmas to pray in the Church of the Nativity and see her family. Unfortunately, the Israeli soldiers would not let her pass through the checkpoint, so she had to leave two weeks early.

A nice girl that is there when you need her to be! She is weird, but that's why we like her. If you ever meet bethlehem make sure not to get on her bad side because she can get nasty! Otherwise, she is a sweet girl you'll want to be around.
I really like that girl named bethlehem!

Bethlehem, NY is a big district and was ranked #1 best school in 2015. Many people have heard about Bethlehem because of how much money they have, how they have a great education, and recycle. The Middle school was once the High school back in 32 B.C. Bethlehem’s most popular sports besides (sex, drugs, and alcohol) is football, swimming, and basketball. Bethlehem town park is for residents that live in the district. The town park is an easy place to get free STD’s and maybe even a free baby! The district is full of intitled wanting to be black kids type of people. They think money is the key to life and they think the song Gucci Gang by lil pump is a “bad ass song”. Bethlehem tries too look all innocent with there little vineyard vines sweaters...but next thing you know people are smashing there cousins in the hallway.

1. An ex-Steel town in PA.
2. A giant joke in the Lehigh Valley, only losing to Easton for the title of BIGGEST JOKE EVER.
3. Home of that giant pile of rust formerly known as Bethlehem Steel, which is now continuing to pollute the town. Gangs ofter hang out there that wear pink and tie-dye t-shirts.
Person 1: Bethlehem fails at life! Nothing to do here!
Person 2: Let's go loiter at the Steel!
