Travel Talks: Israel and Palestine Today

In this travel lecture, Rick Steves shares his personal experience traveling through Israel and Palestine and filming his one-hour TV special "Rick Steves' The Holy Land." From connecting with students at a Palestinian university and visiting with Zionist settlers whose claim to the land goes back to Biblical times to bobbing like a cork in the Dead Sea and roasting coffee with Bedouin nomads, Rick helps us understand the fascinating spectrum of people who call this region home and struggle to share it peacefully.
