Subject: Re: security for tourists in Israel
Hi Ziners,

I think that Carol said that she had already been to Egypt and wants to visit Israel this time. You can take a bus direct from Jerusalem/Tel Aviv to Cairo. You can also cross the land border into Jordan in 5 places (not by direct bus). There is one tour company, Masada that will provide direct transportation via the Sheik Hussein bridge.
