Holy Land o Lose Christian TV Outlet
 BETHLEHEM, West Bank, OCT. 24, 2007 ( Bethlehem's only Christian television station, The Nativity, has just one week left to broadcast.
 "It is with great regret that we are informing you of our decision to close The Nativity -- 'Al-Mahed' -- television station," said its director and owner, Samir Qumsieh, "in spite of its inestimable service to the Church and to the existence of the Christian community in the Holy Land."
 Qumsieh, a member of the Greek Orthodox Church, founded The Nativity in 1996. The broadcasts of this private channel are considered a voice of Christianity from the Middle East, and became a meeting place for Christians, Jews and Muslims. The station aired Masses and other Christian services, a weekly Christian program, news and entertainment, and Muslim prayers on Fridays.
 It made a reputation during the siege of the Church of the Nativity in 2002, covering the event 24 hours a day for six weeks.
 According to AsiaNews, Qumsieh has had frequent death threats for more than a year and the station has had to endure trouble from Palestinian authorities.
 A valiant project
 Vatican Radio on Saturday reported the upcoming closure of the station, noting that it was the only Christian station in the Holy Land, and that its broadcasts reached the West Bank, Jordan and Israel.
