    Actually, Israel is a very safe country to go to.

    Statistically, you should be fine. It's sometimes safer than many US states.

    What you see on the news doesn't accurately paint Israel. Israel actually does so much to prevent terrorism, and their actions keep you safe. You shouldn't not worry: While Israel, if inactive, would be dead, they are a very vigilant country, and it's highly unlikely that you would experience a terrorist attack.

    Do realize, though, that that doesn't exclude the bad neighborhoods that exist in every city. Make sure you and your friend keep track of where to go and not go, and if necessary ask the concierge of your hotel. But, as a whole Israel is indeed a safe country. Keep in mind that your friend is going there, and I guess it dwindles down to if you can trust her. Since you are considering it, I would think that you do.

    No street crime in Israel.. Actually in the Jewish towns. Tel aviv you will be fine. Israel is safer than the states. No thugs, gangs, none of that.

    Don't worry, since our government got some brains and started to make the Gazans and west bankers move through check points in 2007, there is only 0-2 terror attacks per year.

    israel is very safe actually. especially since Gaza war where Hamas was defeated, but do avoid Gaza.

    other than that - you'll do fine.

    Something is wrong here,

    When we talk with Zionists about Hamas, they keep telling us of how Hamas is causing terror in israel and that even if Hamas killed only 28 israeli in 10 years still their bombs and rockets always posing a great threat for israeli lives.

    Now when someone is asking if israel is safe, they say that they it's safe and you can live there with no worries...
