In English anyone who says Bethlehem and pronounces it "Beth-la-hem" is correct, - but since it is not an English word, it really doesn't matter. Take it from the people whose land it actually belongs to: the Jews. Even the Muslims pronounce it more similarly to the Jews than Christians do in English, since Arabic is similar to Hebrew. Anyway, it is Beit Lekhem.
