This year is shaping up to be a pivotal period for all of us here. The Palestinian Authority is gearing up to declare a state in September
while the Israeli government is doing its best to thwart such a unilateral move. This morning's news brought details of an Egyptian-brokered reconcilliation deal between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Stay tuned for more excitement in the months to come.
In the meanwhile come back and visit us again. More great tours await you and your friends. Forward this newsletter widely. Thanks.

New Settler Tour
This new half-day tour is hosted by Bruce Brill, a resident of Kfar Eldad, a tiny settlement next to Nokdi-im, where Israel's foreign Minister, Avigdor Liberman lives.
Visitors can take a tour with Bruce and learn about his philosophy and rationale for living in the West Bank.
Most visitors come to Israel/Palestine and either spend most of their time in the Israeli/Jewish milieu or with Palestinians in the West Bank. Green Olive Tours now offers an opportunity to go deep into the world of the settlers and see first hand how they live and why they are there.
See the details here.
New Hebron Tour
Due to popular Demand we have added a Hebron day-trip every Saturday departing from Jerusalem. Our Hebron/Bethlehem tour on Thursdays has consistently been the most popular tour so we wanted to offer the opportunity to visit Hebron for an entire day.
The tour includes visiting Abraham's Tomb and the Old City of Hebron. Walking the Old City brings home the bizarre nature of the area with Israeli settlers living on top of Palestinian residents who are restricted in their movements.
The tour also visits a glass-blowing workshop and a keffiyeh factory. Lunch is with a local Palestinian family.
