Palestinian student Berlanty Azzam poses for a picture before receiving her bachelor's degree from father Peter Bray, the chancellor of Bethlehem University, at Gaza City's Latin (Roman Catholic) church on January 10, 2010. Israel's top court upheld on December 9, 2009 a decision under which the 22-year-old Christian student was deported from Bethlehem to Gaza just two months before she was due to complete her bachelor's degree. Azzam was a student at the Vatican-sponsored university in the West Bank biblical town of Bethlehm before she was forcefully removed because her ID had a Gaza address.
