A Tour Puts Ramallah in Reach for Israelis

” At one point, Mr. Jubran asked the driver to pull off the road for a closer view of one of the red signs marking the city’s borders. “The entrance for Israeli citizens is forbidden,” it said. “Dangerous to your lives. And is against the Israeli law.”

-“They’re saying it’s like a zoo inside there,” he told the group. “Animals are living there, so it’s dangerous for you. It just gives the very, very bad image about the Palestinians.”

Most Israelis just see the signs as they drive past. This group, at least, went in, …even if it was mostly left to look out the windows.”
