Naomi Campbell is known to be a bit of a party girl, among other things, but the former super-model spent her 42nd birthday in the Holy Land of Jeresalem, engaging in some very non-party-girl activities. According to the AP, Campbell spent the day lighting candles in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the spot where Christians believe Jesus was born, and at the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, the holiest place where Jews can pray. "As much traveling as I've done, I've never come here," Campbell told a Palestinian television station. "I'm happy to be here. Weapons and war, greed and oil ... I hope it all stops. I care about health, about good vibrations, not destruction."

The AP reports she then had a traditional Palestinian dinner of lamb and rice before "speeding away" with her entourage in line of black sedans.
