El Al was everything I expected it to be. The security was very much using profiling and due to the equipment I’m carrying I was subjected to intense questioning. It was very thorough.
The cab drivers in Jerusalem are as wild as any I’ve had anywhere. The guy who drove me to the BBC for my first broadcast stopped to change my money, tried to pick up a woman and almost caused an accident. He got a flat and brandished a tire iron when the price was too high to fix it at the back alley tire place. He learned his English through films and constantly said to me “Is everything ok, my dear?”
I’ll have more pictures of our travels but check out the one with the female soldier who looks like a model. The Stations of the Cross were very powerful. I’ll give more details soon. Listen Monday for my roadside debate with a Palestinian who didn’t like my remarks about the Arab quarter of Jerusalem.

I paid my first visit today to Bethlehem and the place where Christ was born. It’s controlled by the Palestinian Authority and other than tourism all the work appears to be in Jerusalem. Because of tourist dollars I didn’t sense tremendous hostility until I had a chat with seeminly mild mannered Christian Palestinian. I praise the wall Israel has erected between Jerusalem and Bethlehem and Jerusalem as something that has stopped terrorists. He called it “the discriimination wall” and started citing minute detalis from the Oslo Accords to attack Israel. i’ll play this jousting on my Monday or Tuesday show. By the way, the town hot spot is not Starbucks but the Stars and Bucks.Nice branding.
I’ve really enjoyed the Israeli breakfasts ,particularly the fruits and olives. I still don’t like hummus. It will not be an acquired taste. I did have pretty good pizza and met a great biz guy running a pizza shop on at the second and third Stations of the Cross site. We also ate in another place and two listeners told me much later they saw a picture of Hitler with a former owner next to the cash register. We have informed other tour groups.,
We visited the Holocaust and it was overwhelming and it made me vow again that Pa. should mandate holocaust education in public schools.
Listeners with me are a very politically involved group. They wanted the latest CPAC straw poll numbers from me as they waited to go to the Western Wall.

I’m broadcasting today only about 20 miles away from where terrorists launched 60 or so rockets into Israel from Gaza. many of them were shot down by the Iron Dome, an Israeli missile system developed by the guys at Technion, where I’ve been broadcasting from this week. This was the first attack since 2012 of this magnitude. This is evidence of what israel faces every day.
I was surprised that I really enjoyed the food here. Their olives are the best I’ve ever had.
the bottom line for you is this is the trip of a lifetime. i’ve been to 12 other countries and this is the one where i’ve felt the most at home.
