Is Touring Israel Safe?

posted by jfletcher

I hear this all the time from people who have always dreamed of “visiting the Holy Land.” Everyone wants to do it, but too many express fears about the issue of safety. You don’t have to be a member of Mensa to know the region can be volatile.

I live near a small town in the Bible Belt. A “safer” place you can’t imagine. Just the other day, I drove to town and met a car on the way. The driver crossed the center line and it was too close a call for my comfort level. That is one small example of the dangers we all face every day, just by stepping out of our homes.

I’ve been to Israel several times and I can truly say I feel completely safe. The Israelis are very good at security and for now, the Palestinians covet American tourist dollars. It is in everyone’s best interest to make sure you are happy on your trip.

Oh, but I hear, What about the Iranians and the bomb? What of it? If you worry that a nuclear warhead will take you out, let me humbly and genuinely invite you to never leave your home. And when your time comes—in whatever form that takes—what are you going to do about it? Avoid it? Dive under a table? Take a pill?

Let’s live life! I am coordinating special tours to Israel and if you’d like to go, let me know (jim@prophecymatters.com). You will be safe, you’ll have fun, you’ll be moved emotionally and spiritually…and you’ll probably want to go again.

I will tell you in all truth: whenever I go to Israel, I wish the plane could be flown faster. I want to run. The country is that amazing, the experience that profound.

Israel: there's no place like it!

Israel today is besieged by fanatical jihadists. Three boys are murdered by Palestinian terrorists and the world’s reaction is annoyance with the Jewish state. What kind of insanity are we living in? From its founding in 1987, the terrorist group Hamas has been sworn to Israel’s destructio

Demonizing Israel and the Jews
My friend at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld, is a wealth of information, especially for people of faith struggling to understand the dynamics in the Arab-Israeli conflict. His book, Demonizing Israel and the Jews, is a hard look at the alarming rise in anti-S

Evangelicals Silent on Hamas Kidnappings
Bradley Scott's shout-out to the White House, silent so far about the kidnapping of three Israeli youth this week, could also be directed at an audience formerly supportive of Israel: American Christian leaders. Response from American "Christian Palestinianists" to the kidnappings this week by Ha

All in Good Fun?
One of the primary sources of hope in our world today is the marvelous example of predictive prophecy in the Bible. Contrary to the view of some Christian leaders in America—who like to marginalize Bible prophecy teaching—the Bible is loaded with such examples. From epic, sweeping prophecies

A Single Human Being
Memorial Day. Remembering the dead is always poignant. Those of us of a certain generation are emotional at the site of American flags on display in military cemeteries. Decorating family graves is bittersweet. Remembering those who gave their lives protecting us is no small matter. I think of al
