This is a great article. Below is just an excerpt:

GO ISRAEL: Political outlooks, dogged preconceptions and safety concerns can obscure Israel’s appeal as one of the most fascinating, culturally diverse and historically significant places to visit in the world, writes CIAN TRAYNOR

IT’S AN ANCIENT holy land dogged by conflict yet a country young enough to have its founders’ offspring answer your questions. Its narrow terrain means the lush topography of the north is dotted by boutique wineries, while the deserts of the south are a playground of adventure sports and year-round sunshine.
At the country’s heart is Jerusalem, an epicentre of faith and tension where souls and soldiers co-exist. The best place to take it in is from the Mount of Olives, a 3,000-year-old plateau overlooking the sand-coloured four quarters of the old city – Jewish, Muslim, Armenian and Christian – where several religions have claimed a piece of sacred real estate.
