Here’s my Israel discount story. Coming into Kilimanjaro airport we need to get a visa on the spot. Told it’s $50 bucks and i need to use an American passport because my Israeli passport is temporary. (not worth explaining why. Kind of dumb but understandable) The visa man tells me when I hand him the US passport and the 50 bucks that it is $100 for Americans (I wonder why :)). He asks if Ori is an American too. Nope I say, he is an Israeli. He says Ori pays only $50. So I say: hey, I have an Israeli passport too. No problem, he says as I show it to him and get my 50% discount for being a citizen of the only democracy in the Middle East. Don’t you love it?
