    Scary how Mike F and ericn are all ablaze about war and violence and killing, yet this article is about tourist sites. Like propagandists before them, these talkbackers make you think that there are daily massacres, concentration camps with palestinian inmates, and gosh, probably palestinian slave labour serving tea to the tourists. Not even close, of course. Just like there is no separate road system for settlers (is there? please show us which of the thousands of km or roads do you mean), no buffer zones around settlements, no Gazans starved to death (show us pictures of graves with autopsy reports, please), there is no sinister plot to cover up killings with tourist traps. Mike F bleats about intl law. So, Mikey, what's the statute of limitations on being a refugee? The Jews come from Israel and we've returned to our country. We're even willing to share it with a 2-state solution. You and ericn, apparently, prefer war to tourism until the peace treaty is signed.
