Bethlehem Pennsylvania, not Palestine

Bethlehem PA (Pennsylvania, not Palestine) USA 1986 Christmas postage stamp issued just because this city of about 70000 people is called after the birthplace of Jesus. On the cancel, we see the three Magi (aka:Wise Men, Kings, or Kings from the east) riding on their camels towards Bethlehem guided by the Star of Mary that looks exactly like the Star of David.
