There are many repercussions from the hostilities here, and one is naturally a drop in tourism. Symbolic of the downturn is the city of Nazareth, known to Christians worldwide as the birthplace of Jesus, where tourism has fallen so much that the city’s last hotel has closed. The Marriott Hotel, holding on after all others had closed, shut down in January after occupancy fell to less than seven percent, but hopes to reopen if tourism to the area rebounds.
