When you associate tourism with Israel, then the first city that pops into your mind is Jerusalem with the Holy Land Experience.

However, the newest Israeli tourist attraction has become the Israeli/Syrian border. This new idea for tourism sparked about a week and a half ago when Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak visited the border in order to obtain a vantage point of the conflict in Syria.

Now, tourists are flocking to the Golan Heights so that they can peer down upon the war between the Syrian regime and the Free Syria Army (FSA). It seems sort of morbid, but people are being drawn continually to the conflict that has still kept the media buzzing over the past year.
