Dr. Yael Y. Kirshenberg
I love your travelling videos. I just wish you didn’t walk the path of politics.
Comment from : Dr. Yael Y. Kirshenberg

This is effective anti-Jewish propaganda. Rick Steves is a likable, believable guy, so his lies go unchallenged by his ignorant audience, and he is supported by those who know the truth but are motivated by hatred.

Palestinian - and the key still with us

“The best of Israel” video 5 years ago was very biased. You never showed the suffering of the Palestinians. You can see that from the reaction from the amount of dislikes. You turned off the comment section, because you must be ashamed, as you should be!

Rick's such a gem. Love his shows and narratives. Seems like he always strives to understand and experience. As another American it helps
Comment from : Vienne Haake

i've been to Israel and Bethlehem and its very safe, love it very much.
Comment from : Cloud9

I never noticed before, but Rick's right shoulder is lower than his left. I checked some of his other travel vids that I've seen countless times and its the same, but its really pronounced on this video.

Having read the comments below I'm even more convinced that Rick Steves is an essential voice - though it takes a lot to chip away at embedded prejudices and traditional misinformation.

Dam you Rick Steves. I did enjoy your shows. What a rat you are never imagine you were such a antisemite

Israel was established in May 1948 hours after the end of the British Mandate for Palestine expired. Israel was recognized by the US under President Harry Truman 12 minutes later. You mention 1946 and 1947 and I have no idea what you are talking about. You mention borders being internationally recognized? What borders? The green line was an armistice line drawn in green ink on a map in the 1949 armistice talks. It was never a border with border crossings. You call Palestinians suicide bombers as freedom fighters? When a suicide bomber attacked the Dolphinarium dance hall during the 2nd Intifada he killed mostly 14 15, and 16 year old girls who were there to dance. What exactly did that do to promote any Palestinian objective? If you can think of just one, please tell me what that would be.

If you would like to explore the world of the Hebrew and Arabic grammarians from the time when both world lived side by side in al Andaluz you should go to Suzzalo Library and look where the books on Hebrew grammar are kept and you might find two books by Yonah ibn al walid on Hebrew grammar called Shorashim (roots) and another book that you will find referenced in the Encyclopedia Judaica. They are both in Arabic and that was the language of over half of the Jewish world of that time. I haven"t seen these books for over 40 years, but I doubt anyone has ever used them. If I am wrong, and I hope I am, than I extend my sincere apology to whoever has made me a lier.

am a CHRSTION my wish is to LEARN about MUSLMES
Comment from : kingseanweisser

I wanted to comment "Rick Steves for Sec. of State." But then I saw all the hateful comments that are getting many thumbs up just because they agree with whatever preconceived ideas the viewers had. But I decided to comment anyway because a country that put freedom of expression at the very top of their bill of rights deserves someone interested in listening and reiterating perspectives. It's true he has formed an opinion, and this is forbidden in American politics, but I challenge anyone to find someone as interested in sitting down and having dinner with someone who has a different perspective.
Comment from : Jesse

What an amazing speech. Especially I'm glad he pointed out US lead activities in central and south america.

Isaiah 53:5-6
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5-6

Thank you, Rick. Have always loved your insights, I may disagree with a point or two but respect your views still. There's a big difference between knowing and understanding. Appreciate how you try to show it.

Great Job Steve, one courageous American!
Comment from : Jean Francois

why they are crying against the wall?very strange behavior ,SAMEH.

What happened to my comment? It pointed out just a small fraction of the egregious falsehoods in this video and countered them with facts. Censored?
Comment from : D S

Rohan Dhar
An amazing talk!!!! A bit balanced and not asking the some brutal question. However, i believe, under current context, this talk is very well put forward to be acceptable by the vast majority of US citizens. Unfortunately, very few cares.

48:30 "It is OUR tax money" yep, indeed :D sad truth.

Cliche Guevara
Isn't it telling that all of the negative comments are just accusations and name calling? The FEW people who do actually try to refute Rick are just spouting off worn out, government-approved talking points. ..and thanks to Ytoob's censorship, no one here can defend Rick factually or debate all of these whiny detractors. (WHich would be VERY easy to do if we actually had freedom of speech online) Sad times indeed.
Comment from : Cliche Guevara

Evan Winer
Israel's superb infrastructure is a result of Israel's booming economy (GDP in 2018 was $379 billion), not US AID ($3.8 billion)which is military aid that must be spent on US military equipment. Israel does not need US aid to build its infrastructure. . Israel has a good economy because of the brilliance and industriousness of its citizens, particularly in the high-tech arena. Rick Steves' bias and ignorance are truly profound.

Thank you Steve, for speaking the truth, the truth about occupation and oppression to Palestinians by Israel, the truth about Zionism, the truth about how the Israeli's Government is plan-fully banishing Palestinians so there will be no Palestinians live in Palestine

I need to say that I overestimated your intelligence. That won't happen again. You should have disclaimers on the door of your talks to warn your audiences that you are making things up and your opinions are not necessarily aligned with reality.

ilisa st pierre
So incredibly disappointed in you Rick. This speech is filled with classic anti-semitic tropes, lies and propaganda against Israel and all Jewish people. I will never ever again, buy any travel book, video or product of yours. I suggest you study some real history and learn the facts.

10:16 WOW here we go with outright Anti-Semitism. Insinuating that Jewish money is controlling leaders.
Comment from : Albert Rodriguez

Albert Rodriguez
What? 1:04 America invests more in Israelis per person than they do in Americans here? That is a lie. The money given to Israel is earmarked 95% or more has to be used to purchase military equipment in the UNITED STATES only! None of it goes to the people. Where are you getting this information? It is categorically 100% factually incorrect.
Comment from : Albert Rodriguez

Albert Rodriguez
Wow. I find this extremely condescending rude. Its anti-semitic and insulting "Who are the most frightened people in our country? The people buried deep in the middle of it with no passport whose worldview is shaped by media....we're the bold ones I guess the ones who have passports curiosity and enough money to go explore the world " Who do you think you are? What gives you the right to be so flippant and condescending towards people of low-income status??? I find these comments extremely hateful, prejudice and narrow-minded.

"What motivates these kids?" lol. Quran verse 4:89 “But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” 💀
Comment from : Steven Mix

Steven Mix
Wow, so he is saying they were"freedom fighters" who were blowing up random busloads of people just 20 years ago, because there was no wall at that time. This guy is an Islamo-Marxist. I used to enjoy some of his tours, but this stuff he is saying is nuts.
Comment from : Steven Mix

Steven Mix
Major lie number one by Steves: "There were lots of people there, and they got kicked out."
Comment from : Steven Mix

Gail Cutting
wow, Steve you said people who live in closed communities find it easy to live in fear . you implied that greater understanding is achieved when you get out and explore the world. but later you said we should empathize with the Palestinians living in their closed cities on the west bank who are walled in because of their violence toward Israel! Shouldn't you be saying Palestinians should put down their bombs, their hatred of the Jewish people, and try to understand and get along? Do you realize they have REJECTED every single peace plan offered to them, without negotiating, only to say their only desire is to drive the Jews into the sea?
Comment from : Gail Cutting

David Monk
The Land of Israel and Jerusalem will always be a problem as long as man is ruling the earth. The problem will only be solved in God's plan when Jesus returns. The land is God's and was promised to Abraham as his eternal inheritance. Any Bible scholar will know these things and that God is ruling in the Kingdoms of men to ensure his plan and purpose comes to fruition. Those who do not know, or believe the Bible, will continue to argue over the land and they will never be able to resolve the problem peacefully.

Conor Furlong
I don’t know how your can tackle this subject without talking about Gaza.

Also Palestinians don’t feel like they’re living under occupation. They ARE living under occupation.

Lokman Merican
As for American taxes funding Isreali infrastructure, that sounds likely enough but I think you should mention also how well the Isreali economy itself is doing the last few years. In practical terms that alone might bring about more prospects for peace than anything else the politicians can do.

1:06:30 You slipped here with the truth. They want all of Jerusalem (and all of Israel). NO ONE was making Jerusalem a capital when the Jordanians controlled the area. If they want to hate someone, it should be their leaders who will never accept anything except %100 of Israel.
