Sure, there is something funny if you know what was going on already in the country (most recently 2012), but that has not stopped me. As a tourist you can also go to Palestine, because if you will. We are just drove through – from the Dead Sea to Jerusalem must be that anyway – and had also been thinking about to go to Ramallah, but then it failed. The people are friendly and helpful (but got me here and there a little aloof ago) and often the people were happy when we said that we are from Germany, total easy Israelis.

Should I ever go to Israel?
Well, I can understand the question. One or the other certainly doubts on whether it makes sense to support there. The same but you can say of many other countries (India, South Africa, Oman etc come to mind spontaneously) politics with his visit. And yes, under certain circumstances, it may also make sense for you to see the other side of the country to watch – West Bank, Palestine .. – to get a more complete picture of the situation.

My Israel resumé
What am I supposed to say? The trip was one of the most interesting of my travel career. To see its people, history and current situation at once with my own eyes the country, was often confrontational, but also very impressive. As I sat at the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem and the sun for a few minutes enjoying, just a filmmaker has an older locals interviewed on the subject of peace.
