The Bible has a lot to say about Palestine. Not just geographically, as it formerly included the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah, but also in terms of size, the expanse of desert, depth of history, and the people’s propensity to provide a warm welcome to visitors.
Yes, it’s a disputed region, and people get worked up over whether you call it the Occupied Territories, the West Bank, or just Palestine; but remember that by visiting Palestine, you are doing one of the most crucial steps toward helping Palestine achieve peace. You’re saying you won’t tolerate human rights violations, international law, and occupations by visiting. You’re saying, “I’m going to Palestine, and I want to find out all I can think about.” The visual and aural experiences are enhanced. Then, perhaps, you’ll be so pleasantly surprised by how much you enjoyed your trip that you’ll tell all your friends and family about it, bringing an influx of new visitors. And thus, in this travel guide to Palestine, we say, Amen.
