I have been taking notes throughout my time here; though I haven't had the chance to post them in real time, I thought I will start by posting what I have so far. For those that don't know I am visiting cousins in a suburb of Bethlehem in the West Bank along with my sister; the last and only time I was here was back in 2000 when I was 12 years old, immediately before the Second Intifadah.
Arrive at Tel Aviv airport with my sister, we’re picked up by a cousin who lives in a suburb around Bethlehem. Everything is smooth on arrival, though I’m told it’s on the exit flight that the Israelis usually fuck with people. It’s about a one hour ride from Tel Aviv to my cousin’s house.
The first thing that strikes me upon arriving in town and meeting my cousin’s friends is the number of young women with children… you see many, many sexy young women in their early-mid 20s with impressive bodies holding infants or toddlers. The MILF per capita ratio is probably 10x what it is in the US. In Yankee-Judea, the only women you see in public with young children are past their prime, mid-to-late 30s, trophy wives who were getting their cunts ran through by dozens of guys throughout their 20s.
I also understand that, at least in the Bethlehem area, the general rule for girls is still to remain virgins until marriage… if you are a “serious boyfriend”, you can get ‘yo dick sucked and do everything else but still generally won’t get to pound it until you tie the knot. Part of this is because everyone knows everyone in Bethlehem and the suburbs… in the larger cities like Jerusalem and Ramallah your chances of finding loose women are a little better, but still nothing like in the West.
Among Muslim women, the burqa/niqab is fairly uncommon… some of the Muslim women dress like their Christian counterparts, but those that do keep hijab usually just wear a headscarf and maybe a shawl on top of Western style clothing. I soon learn that I arrived here during Ramadan, which sucks because throughout the West Bank there’s less to do at nighttime, you’re not supposed to eat in public in the presence of Muslims, etc. Muslims used to be a small minority in Bethlehem 50 years ago, now they are the majority. The Christians, however, still predominate in the suburb I’m staying in, and even in downtown Bethlehem seem to control the majority of commerce.
