I know there have been many videos on describing different things you can find in Israel, but, I would like to say something about this country. First of all it has so much history here not only for Jews but non-Jews as well. It has a mild winter and if you do not like winter we have Eilat in the Southern part. It is a nice warm climate. There are dolphin shows there and you can get tickets to see the dolphins. Now, who would not want to see the dolphins. For those that like snow and skiing, we have the Hermon on the Golan and the view is very breathtaking. We have the Wailing or Western Wall in Jerusalem and who does not want to come to Jerusalem to see our Jewish Market. It is a very interesting place. The stall people yell out their wares and so much to and I think they have entertainment at night and a very good place to explore. There is so much more to see here. The country may be small on the outside but wide and full of places to visit on the inside. I cannot forget while in Jerusalem go visit our biblical zoo. It is very long and there is a train for those that would rather ride to the different animal stops. This is just basic. I am sure there is much more I can say,but, I would rather you come and see it for yourself. Thank you.

Most will describe the beautiful places a tourist can visit But for most travelers, the number one concern is the cost. Safety and security comes a close second.

josefina, I understand what you are saying and that is very true. We have great security here so do not have to be worried about that but cannot tell you how much it costs because I do not travel outside of here because I do not want to. Maybe if one checks the internet they can see about deals.

It's a nice and beautiful place and I read a few good books about the history of the place called Palestine /Israel/Judea and Samaria I also came across an interesting Israeli study that reveals how a big part of the Arab population are descendants of Jews who converted to Christianity and Islam throughout centuries. I am not sure I would agree with the politics of the Israeli government or the PA for that mattet, but I believe that both Arabs and Jews in general are wonderful people. They would make great neighbours if it wasn't for the corrupt politics.

Shadi, There is no Palestine, When the partition came through the Jews were called Palestinians and It was Palestine for us before it became the State of Israel. I am not sure about that study of the Arabs being descendants of us and Jews converting to Christianity. During the Holocaust Jewish children were given to Christians but that was in Europe. The PA is corrupt and they want to murder us and take the whole land. The Arabs here are not good neighbors and that does not have to do with our govt. It has to do with them. They want us gone and so they want to murder us. This land was given to us by G-d.

@Hannihar I'm pretty sure it was called the British Mandate of Palestine not Israel. And we can safely agree that the vast majority of Jews were NOT Palestinians but citizens of other countries. Statistics show that most Jews arrived only in the 20th century. Palestine today refers to the territories occupied by Israel. So one cannot say that something recognised by the entire international community doesn't exist. As for Arabs not being good neighbours, if someone expelled most of my people and treats the rest badly then I wouldn't be a good neighbour either. What I was saying that they WOULD be nice neighbours if none of that happened and if they didnt feel like aliens in their own lands.

@Madshadi Shadi, that is true and it was changed to Israel and I cannot remember when. In the very beginning it was called Palestine and we were the Palestinians. There is no Palestine or Palestinian people. It is called Israel and was given to us by G-d. We do not occupy anything. Judea and Sameria is part of the land of israel. I do not know where you got your information. How can one occupy their own land. The land belongs to us and was given to us by G-d. I do not know where you get your information. We protect ourselves against our enemies. The Arabs want to murder us and want us gone. We do not go after them. Maybe you need to turn into our news sometime and see what is really going on here. I live here and know what is happening here. It is our land given to us by our G-d. We have been around for thousands of years and they have not been around that long.

I sure would like to but alas will be stuck forever now in my country. It is pretty much the same with weather here. cold snow etc. in the North and parts of the mid west, hot dry desert in far west. south is mostly hot and wet. like here in Florida. its why a lot of people stay in one part summers and go live in the other parts winters. but that is mostly those rich enough to have 2 homes across country

We have tours that go to the Southern part here in winter because in Eliat where they go is warmer in the winter. Well, we are not going anywhere so hopefully one day you will make it here.

Thanks andria. i guess I did not explain very well. Since you live in the United States I wanted you to describe the state you live in what it is like and what is nice about it. Sorry about that.

Col. I would love to visit your city. The US is very vast and I havent seen it all so I cant describe it all (in one country we have stated with fields,mountains, deserts, lush woods, lakes, canyons, the ocean... lots of natural beauty. In my state we have a lot of state parks nearby with beautiful trails and lakes. I live in a metropolitan area though (in Minnesota)

maezee, there are people from countries but I meant where people live. I grew up in Minneapolis I know about the lakes and the place. I know new things were added after I left in 1986. The lakes are very beautiful. Do you know Lake of the Isles? That was my favorite lake.

Thanks for explaining a bit about the various attractions to be seen in Israel. We have friends who have been to Jerusalem several times.

You are so welcome Judy and since they have been here several times they must have liked it to come back and passed it on to you. Did they tell others that would like to see the country for themselves?

In the USA you can do lots of things. Go skiing or go to the beach. You can fish and swim. There are lots of water parks and lots of amusement parks with lots of rides.
