    I just spoke with someone recently who was considering a trip there. I don't think she has any idea...

    Gaza is an excellent vacation option, especially, for women.. IslamoFascists really know how to rock!

    Apart from the Pyramids and the Sphinx, why would anyone go to the Middle East for vacation?

    You have to been kidding!

    I have been to the middle east/North Africa:
    (1) Egypt - One of the best vacations I went on. The people were beyond nice. The hotels were amazing and affordable. The Pyramid and Sphinx experience were beyond cool. We took a camel tour through the desert (we loved it). The Egyptian zoo was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.
    (2) Jordan - Just briefly. Very cool and historic place.
    (3) Israel - Not just because I am Jewish, but it was one of the best place you could visit. It has the European 1st world feel. The beaches are absolutely amazing. The sites and history are truly an experience. The food is phenomenal. And the women are 2nd only to America (Sorry Jews, American Women are the pick of the litter)!


    Where I want to go:
    (1) Dubia - I heard its amazing and anything you see on it doesn't live that billing down.
    (2) Qatar - Ditto
    (3) Morocco - Just looks awesome
    (4) Turkey - I heard the beaches are 2nd to none.
    (5) Kurdistan - I heard its a great experience and safe as any place you can visit.

    Dubai, Qatar, Egypt, Jordan, Kurdistan, Turkey and Morocco are other very great places to go.

    Great places if you want to wind up spending your vacation in a prison cell for uttering one wrong word.

    I have been to Egypt and Jordan. Your assessment is way off. Refusal to visit either (especially Egypt), then your missing out. You do know that bad things can happen to Americans in Israel also. Do note the American Israeli immigrant who was arrested, jailed, beaten and raped (yes he was male) for pissing on someone's lawn (the police thought he was trying to break into a house). Either way it wasn't ideal.

    You won't be arrested in Israel for as much as criticizing the Israeli government, as in Turkey and Morocco, two of the allegedly more "moderate" Muslim countries.

    Say one word against Turkey in Turkey and find yourself transplanted to a Turkey prison.
    Say one word about Morocco's occupation of Western Sahara in Morocco and you'll be on the wrong side of the King's security force.

    Be sure to send a postcard from your vacation!

    Where female genital mutilation continues to be practiced and where Copts are persecuted and murdered.


    Torture capital of the world and where Jews are forbidden to live.

    Sounds like fun!
