I'm Afraid To Go To Israel

"Why don't you go to Israel?"
"I'm afraid."
"What?? But it's the safest place!"
"I know."
"Regarding Eretz Yisroel, the Torah states: "ארץ אשר ה' אלוקיך דורש אותה, תמיד עיני ה' אלוקיך בה מראשית השנה ועד אחרית שנה". It is the land towards which G-d is always Attentive!
"I know. That's why I'm afraid."

But I thought we agreed Scandinavia, and most particularly Norway, is the safest place on Earth...............

Actually, the only thing we agreed on was that the Harley Davidson bar in Ghirok (Romania) was scary.

Is that the one where they sell neft to drink and tuica to put in your Harley? If so I want to organize hakafos there on Simchas Torah!
