His family is one of the oldest and most celebrated Christian families in Bethlehem. Alex’s brother Bishara is founder of Bethlehem Bible College; his nephew Sami is director of Holy Land Trust as well as founder of both Christ at the Checkpoint and the BetLehem Music Festival; and his brother Mubarak, recognized by Newsweek as the “Palestinian Gandhi,” is Professor of Peace Studies at American University in Washington DC.
