If I tell you that you will be more secure in Israel than in any European country, would you believe me? Probably not, but it is true. Criminality in Israel is by far lower than in any European country. It is true that there is a conflict going on and we suffer from time to time its consequences but we need to take into account:

  1. When something happens, very often it occurs in very specific areas. People know that and can avoid it simply by not approaching them.
  2. The media all over the world amplify whatever thing that occurs in our country. Whereas many crimes in other countries don’t appear in the news, all event related to the conflict here is cover of newspapers in every country, giving a distorted impression of what is really going on.

Whoever has visited our country previously, except in case of war, share the opinion that our country is much safer than what appear in the news and in many cases even more than their countries of origin.
