#2 We visited the wailing wall on the first day of a Ramadan a few years ago. The isle to the temple was barricaded on both sides to prevent Muslims from disturbing the worshipers at the wall and vise versa. After the exit from the temple, the barricades were removed. we walked up a narrow lane and were inundated by Muslims. I walked on the men’s side of the street and my wife was by my side on the woman’s. We were truly “untouchable”. The men pushed with hands on their chest and elbows out. After 1/4 mile of this we got out of the crowd. No trouble was had.

#3 After leaving the old city, we walked into an area of traditional Jews. A bill board stated something to the effect “people not of the faith should be directed out of the area”. We were by a butcher after several traditionally dressed Jews left the store. It is an interesting town. That being said, I am glad that the Jews control the holy sites of all religions.

#5 Thank you for that report, Angavirt Thrinese8225. I’ve not yet got to Israel — with all the travelling Mr. Wife did for his career, we generally didn’t go far beyond his general rounds. And we would have had to get a second passport just for Israel because some other countries can be stupid about such things. Sadly, now my health isn’t up to the combination of going halfway round the world plus all the walking I’d want to do, so we await the next medical breakthrough.
