Forget what you've read in the papers or seen on TV
Israel is a very safe place to visit.
You are far more likely to run into trouble in any major U.S. city than
anywhere in Israel. Behave in Israel the way you would in those cities.
Be careful where you go at night. You will see soldiers carry guns on the streets,
in cars and on buses. Soldiers are required to keep their weapons with them.
With so many Israelis on duty, it is common to stand next to someone on a street corner with an rifle hanging
around their neck.
You'll quickly get used to it and realize it's a fact of life in Israel and nothing to fear.
