    For what purpose? I being Catholic have no desire to go there other than the antiquity, but you wish to go there for what? To Incite? To break their laws? To ask them how to do it better than how you do it now? me and Curious Kukku are "just curious" That has to be the lamest deflection I ever heard! The Saudis and the Arab Emirates were opening up to Jews with Contracts and tourism and what did they get in return? 20 shmucks spilling Muslim blood with stolen international passports! You need to wait a long time before that trust is built up again and to try to convince them to make peace. Thanks for the incitement. Hey the Christian church of scientology arsn still hasnt been solved nor has the Mosque price tag attacks been solved and Im willing to bet neither have the attacks on Jews for Jesus and the mass burning of their pamphlets by orthodox Jews in Israel. Before you go trolloping around glorifying your bogus democracy fix it first, your fascist underskirt is showing!
