One weekend I hitchiked with an Israeli student through out the west-bank getting rides from arabs and talking to them in broken hebrew, arabic english, all the way to Taba. G-d it was beautiful. I have never been back. I am told that kind of thing could never be done now ----- Josh, the only thing that would be a problem for you in you did the same thing today would be the Israeli soldiers and checkpoints, and sometimes the settlers. You would have no problems at all with the Palestinians, whose arms are open to people of all religions and nationalities so long as they done come armed with Uzis and tanks.
Israeli forces shoot, lightly wound Palestinian they say was fleeing security check (Haaretz)
