JFK --> Amman?

We are writing this from JFK.... 9:33 east coast time...

How Does One Get to Bethlehem - Bethlehem is in the West Bank, and, well there are no civilian airports within the West Bank (or Fed Exs) so... the closest international airport to Bethlehem is  Ben Gurion International in Televive (TLV), (its about a one hour drive from Bethlahem) and it is certainly the most obvious choice as far as flights go, but since we will be traveling with Joseph, this is not an option.

As a "citizen" of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) "Palestine",  Joseph cannot fly though Ben Gurion airport, but must instead fly to neighboring Jordan into Amman's Queen Alia International Airport  and then take buses and taxis from there to Bethlehem. 

BUT WE WILL CROSS THAT BRIDGE WHEN WE GET TO IT~ for now we are off to Amman! We board in 10 minutes! See you in Amman!
