is it safe to travel to Israel?

I'm from australia and am going to be travelling europe next year, I just want to know whether it would be safe for me to visit Israel? i'm very interested in the history and would like to see some of the holy sites but i would rather skip it and live than be hit by a bomb. also, do women in Israel need to cover up? and would it be safe for a woman to walk the streets alone during the day? i've been told in some middle eastern countries it's dangerous.

thanks!

    Hi,

    it is safe to travel to israel, and you don't need to cover yourself. actually going to the beach is very popular here :)

    you do need to dress modestly in the holy places.

    the streets are safe for women to walk the streets alone, during day and night.

    if you have more questions about traveling in israel, feel free to email me.

    Dont worry happens only in sedrot (rockets). nah.. should be safe nothing special but pro palstine demonstrations.. (arabic areas)

    And no you dont need to cover up yourself, only orthodox jewish women do, but many people in Israel are not religious and dress just like any other morden liberal nation, you can wear what ever you would wear back home, we are very fashion conscious, we all wear western style clothing. just like in australia or any other morden country.

    As far as Jerusalem goes, if you are planning to go to the religious then take with you more conservative clothes, they expect the woman to cover their shoulders, if you are wearing a top that doesn't cover your shoulders they will give you free of charge a scarf to put on around your shoulders. i reckon long skirt (covering the knees) and a long top one ^_-

    everywhere else I'm sure you can wear just casual clothing.. :)

    nah, were 1st world country dont worry.. just be aware. like you would back home.

    p.s i dont know if its true but were probably going to have a war (Hezbollah,hamas,syria,iran IDK XD) this summer.. some say yes some say no but we will see.

    rumors.. i guess.. but you can definitely smell the gunpowder in the air :\ the army sends special induction orders to some people..

    P.S.S - EY ARABS YOU FU*K CUN*TS GO BACK TO UR CAVE -.-

    cheers

    Israel is not a safe place to visit.Hopefully ,Israel will accept peace and pull out of Palestine.

    If you carry so much as a packet of peanuts with you, most likely the israeli army will murder you for helping to feed the palestinians.
