That's because they hate Jews.

South Africa, during its apartheid era, wasn't a big tourist draw, either.

Basically this, though I think I'd have tossed a reference to revolutionary Ireland in there to capture the full "everyone involved is an unsympathetic son of a biatch" nature of the situation.

Israel could wipe out the "Palestinians" tomorrow and hasn't.

The only people interested in ethnic cleansing as the people trying to destroy Israel, and that includes the arseholes firing rockets.

If I made more money and had more free time I'd take a vacation there, but there's a bunch of places in front of Israel that I gotta see first.

Well there was that Israeli politician that was enterprising and forward thinking enough to say:

"Muslims that arrive here do not even believe that this country belongs to us, to the white man."

Trying to attract the white supremacist tourist dollar was a bit of a gambit considering that they hate Jewish people, but I think they're more white than Muslims on the KKK color wheel.

I've never understood why anyone would want to go to that god-forsaken dusty shiathole of hatred. My next door neighbor, who is Jewish, sent her daughter on a tour of Israel last summer. The girl hated it so bad, she came home a week early.

You shouldn't talk about the promised land like that. God wouldn't lead his people to a forsaken hellhole, would he? That'd be just evil.

I'm sure he knew where he was going, he just needed 40 years to gather enough cowardly men to go slaughter innocent women and children. Except the single women, they get to be raped.

Now, therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known a man by lying with him; but all the women-children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

A little life-and-death excitement is the best reason I can think of for visiting. Looking at a wall and pretending it's magical doesn't sound like fun.

That said, I can almost get shot where I live. I don't need to travel for that kind of thing.

Holy Land, Schmoly Land.

If you can't enjoy yourself seeing a whole new culture and meeting new people and seeing all the ancient architecture the problem might be you.

The ancient architecture is more depressing than anything, since people still worship the dumb stones, none of the really interesting excavations will ever take place.

Been to Tel Aviv on business... It's kind of like being stuck in Newark but with more annoying Guidos.

There's old stuff to see in Israel (which being honest isn't of great interest to me, other than perhaps a day trip) and there's the "whole desert land which prospers" which isn't of great interest to me. YMMV.

It's a bit of a hassle getting in and out (although to be fair the security is more "secure" than anything the TSA could ever do -- see what happens when you hire grown-ups) and it is a bit of an expensive trip to pay yourself.

So if I wan to hang out in the desert with a bunch of old Jews, I'll go to Vegas. :)

Very true. My trip was well worth it. Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem....really cool.
Beaches, great food (diverse), great people (diverse). Just a few days but it was amazing.
Would recommend to anyone.

Yes, but it's the goddamn HOLY LAND!!

There's all kinds of god-magic infused into the place because it was the ancient site of much praying, sacrificial, suffering and piety, along with being where JESUS HIMSELF was born!

The god-magic will soak into you and make you a special person in god's eyes.

He'll even send a memo to St Peter to ensure minimal delay at the pearly gates!

You can't lose..especially if YOU get hit by one of those rockets. God will REALLY love you for that!

Israel is awesome! I would go back to Tel Aviv for a vacation in a heartbeat. Best burger I've ever had was in Tel Aviv (the London Cafe), and the eye candy, especially on the promenade is pretty, pretty good.

They are "rockets", not "missiles" because they are un guided. Qassam rockets are glorified pipe bombs with a fertilizer fuel-based engine. Just saying.

Would the Palestinians eliminate the Israelis if they had the means? Yes
Has Israel eliminated the Palestinians even though they have the means? No

Israel has got this well in hand, they are prepared and ready.
I wouldn't put up with shiat like rockets coming my back yard fence either.

This however makes me sad.

"Racists" in a country that was conceived, founded and lives and breathes by racist principles?

Surely you jest.
