Israel's neighbors know nothing of Israel. They are not allowed to visit and they don't learn anything but negatives about the creation of Israel. Even most Jordanians and Palestinians who could apply to visit relations do not because of logistics, and stigma.

I would love to visit Israel but I'm working in Kuwait right now and know they don't want to admit people that have been to Israel and I would be afraid to fly into Israel because I know they are always a target of Muslim extremists.

I work in Dubai most of the year. What I do is fly to Jordan and then drive to Israel. Have Israel stamp a sheet of paper instead of my passport and I enter. To leave I do the same thing in reverse. As to terrorist attacks, put them in perspective of how many days go by that they don't happen. The media makes it sound worse than it actually is. If you are street smart you know how you have to deal with the crime in Kuwait, that does not exist in Israel.

How did Israel become so successful when most of them came there with nothing? Or was it their white privelge that made them so successful?

Israelis are hard-working, good, honest, fun people plus the fact that they are really the only Democracy in the Middle East makes them an attractive nation to live in, visit & become allies with.

Not white privilege at all. Their government is not an oppressive regime. Their government is similar to ours. The more 'successful' countries in the world are the ones with governments like ours who grant equality & freedom for its citizens

With a US passport, how does Israel treat this and also how does Jordan on the return?

Yes, with a US passport. With Jordan you'll already have the Visa stamp from when you flew in.
