Syria, Egypt and Jordan are full of American and European tourists- the countries are gorgeous and boast many amazing antiquities. They are also very safe for tourists. I've entered Israel from Egypt before. The Israelis I encountered at the border were characteristically rude- no surprise there.Luckily they didn't blow up my luggage. The guards were probably jealous bc they can't travel to these places with their Israeli passports.
