    I keep hearing that Israel is not in a constant state of war, and that most areas in Israel are safe. However, is this really true? is there a time when is not advisable to go? I'd like to go but only knowing the true facts. Please share your thoughts..

    There is no doubt that Israel is in a state of war, anyone who says otherwise isn't being honest. I love going to Israel but having been back for the last couple of years.

    From experience, I'd avoid major Jewish, Christian and Muslim holidays, particularly during the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in September, Hanukkah in December and Passover in April.

    At those times, the country is more likely to have large crowds on the streets. If terrorists want to attack, they will choose times like this, when the potential for greater damage is higher.
