NAZARETH, Israel -- Pope John Paul II enveloped Jesus' boyhood hometown in a festive embrace yesterday, seeming to override months of Christian-Muslim hostility and a huge show of force by police. In a display of religious coexistence that could have gone dangerously awry, Pope John Paul led a Mass honoring the Virgin Mary inside a basilica steps from midday prayers by hundreds of Muslim men at an open-air mosque that has been the source of a bitter local dispute. Fears of possible violence prompted Israeli authorities to seal off streets from traffic and flood them with police and border guards three hours before the pope arrived, giving downtown Nazareth the early-morning feel of an armed camp.

NAZARETH, Israel -- Jerusalem is usually the place that dominates religious animosities in the Holy Land. But lately, Nazareth has been competing for attention in a dispute that's even aroused the Vatican.It started two years ago with the demolition of a Muslim school. Since then, the dispute between Muslims and Christians in the city where Jesus grew up has sparked outbreaks of violence and become a crisis that threatens Pope John Paul II's trip next year to the Holy Land to celebrate the year 2000.
