Contrary to popular belief that Israel is a dangerous place to visit, official data indicates that one is less likely to be killed in Israel than in the United States. Just ask anyone who has been to Israel recently.

It may be surprising to learn that fewer people are murdered percentage-wise in Israel than in America, notwithstanding the Arab-Israeli conflict.

According to data originally sourced from either criminal justice or public health systems, 1.70 in every 100,000 people are murdered annually in Israel compared to 3.80 in the U.S.

The data refers to the number of victims of an unlawful death purposefully inflicted on a person by another person.

Therefore, safety concerns are no reason to postpone a visit to Israel. Book a tour and see this incredible country.
