They know all about plague and pestilence in Israel and how to address it which is why they will vaccinate ALL their citizens by the end of next month.
Israel has pledged to do what every country’s leaders are required to do, and that is, look after all its near 10 million citizens.
Which beggars the question why can a nation of that size offer security from the virus this quickly when the countries closest to my heart can’t?
That’s Ireland and Scotland – combined population 11 million.
The good news then is that Israel is living up to its own billing as The Promised Land.
Or if you like The Land of Milk and Honey and Vaccines.
Wall to wall coverage
And you can visit The Holy Land safely when of course you provide your negative test,
Which we’ve been dragging our feet on, or just plainly getting wrong, despite what our leaders have been claiming.
Western perceptions about other countries have often been misleading throughout the Pandemic, fed often by digital fake news.
And I recall the feeding frenzy last year over a fake news picture of thousands of pilgrims worshipping at the Waiting Wall in Jerusalem.
For my authority on such matters I check with my old pal Arthur who runs a news fact-checking agency.
And I push out the facts and info on Travel, and for Israel.
The land which I yearned for from the banks of the Jordan at the site of the Baptism of Jesus.
And Mt Nebo where Moses looked out on the Promised Land but could not visit on account of him falling out with Yahweh, or the Big G.
Another G here, and heaven-sent too, are my friends at G Adventures
They have the Middle East covered and are offering Israel Explorer, Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, an eight-day tour from £1274, valid on August 13. Was £1499.
The best of both
Or if you want to tie it with Jordan, and you will, then the 15-day Explore Israel & Jordan is from £3049, depart March 21.
And G Adventures will find you the best option for flights when you call.
G Adventures remain close to my heart… and my health with my G Adventures snood my go-to mask this past year.
MEET YOU BY THE WALL
