From the US State Department’s periodic safety advisory to travelers, Nov. 23, 2021:
Reconsider travel to Israel due to COVID-19. Exercise increased caution in Israel due to terrorism and civil unrest.
No need to “exercise caution” due to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank or the Israeli siege of Gaza, apparently. Sporadic terrorism and vague hints of “civil unrest” are cause for concern, but a military occupation/siege enforced by M-16s, F-16s, phosphorus bombs, tear gas, armored vehicles, militarized bulldozers, and state-sponsored vigilantism is nothing to worry about.
Could the selectivity of the worries expressed by Foggy Bottom reflect the selective nature of its intended audience?
