Many travelers are often worry about crossing to Bethlehem with an Israeli border control stamp in their passport.
This is not an issue when crossing to Bethlehem since all visitors to Bethlehem arrive through Israel and it is obvious to the local Palestinian authority that they came through Israeli passport control.
The Israeli stamp is an issue only if you intend to visit an Arab state with no peace agreement with Israel for example - Lebanon, Syria, Iraq or Iran.
