Not Tripoli. Not Gaza.

We can walk through any European town in safety

Me and my wife

But would we walk through Tripoli or Gaza?

Not on your flipping life!

Thanks for comment Wolfgar. It's all about perception isn't it?

I wouldn't blame you for not wanting to, not in the slightest.

Personally, curiosity and not trusting anything anyone else tells me about shit that's happening always gets the better of me. Though I have never been to Tripoli (The Libyan one that is)

All I would add is that there are quite a few towns in Europe which I would be less inclined to walk through than others, though the reasons may on occasion be related to other territories.

To say that you "can" walk safely in any European town is a heck of an assumption. Walking through Gaza you are probably as likely to get hit by an Israeli airstrike as anything else untoward happening to you, many of the locals would be extremely grateful that someone from the outside has come to see them.

Evil lurks everywhere it has no exclusivity.
