Decent? Roma are well known for being as crooked as they come. I've been all over Europe and the only time I've ever been remotely scared for my safety is when I stopped to help a "stranded" car and my Jeep was rushed by a bunch of Roma hiding in the bushes. I don't think they expected my Jeep with a lift and 35's to be able to haul balls.

Since I know your reddit-fu is weak, I assume your google-fu is weak. I found it: https://www.recoilweb.com/preview-shtf-ifak-vs-med-kit-57345.html

It's unfortunate that in today's society, the path to equating something someone doesn't agree with, with Nazis, has grown so short.

The Red Cross is also active in war zones. Are they responsible for war crimes?

What one piece of kit do you recommend to civilians going into the backcountry?

You caught me. I have a typo in my comment. Thanks for pointing it out.

You think sticking a place for them to congregate in front of such emotionally activated, sometimes even ignorant people is a good idea?

I think xenophobia is the root of most evil in the world. I think that, in the US, we have a law protecting freedom of religion. I think it's despicable to lump all Muslims into a group because some of them did some very horrible things.

Visiting a nation where the primary religion is Islam? Depends on the country, but it is very likely that a white male would be treated like an outsider.

Have you ever traveled to an country where Islam is the major religion? As someone that has traveled to many countries, including Turkey and Egypt, I didn't feel like an outsider. But hey, what do I know. I've only taken my grandmother to Egypt once, and my wife and son 6 times. My wife and son have actually gone twice without me. I think the world would be a much better place if people built opinions of nations and groups of people based on first hand experience.

The friends I've made in Egypt are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Every time I hear about a new bombing or shooting, it crushes my heart a little more. 99% of the people there just want to live their life in peace.

Jerusalem and Vatican City have no such policies to my knowledge.

Haha, try to get into Israel on a passport from almost any other Middle Eastern nation. Skip that. Try to get into Israel with a passport from America that has a travel visa from any Middle Eastern nation.
