Syria - Palestine visas

Is it possible to enter Palestine via Amman to Allenby Bridge and not having the stamp from Israel?

I will fly next august to Damascus and then I will travel to Jordan, Lebanon and if possible to Jerusalem. The problem of course is having a stamp from Israel because my flight back is from Damascus and I’m worried about not coming back cos’ I have heard that if you have a stamp from Israel government, the authorities in Syria will not let you in again. Anybody knows what can I do to go to Jerusalem without problems with Syria? Reply to this

Israeli immigration should ask if you want your passport stamped or on a separate paper which is stapled into your passport. It's important not to have an Israeli stamp if you're planning to travel around the middle east, so it's probably better to preempt the question by stating up-front that you don't want their stamp. No problem traveling to Jerusalem from Jordan; there are buses to Allenby Bridge from Amman. I booked an English speaking Palestinian taxi driver from a travel agent in Amman, who met me on the Israeli side who was also an excellent tour guide and ambassador for his people. Reply to this
