    I'm going to be in Jordan until december and I want to be able to go to Israel for religious reasons. Does anyone know a way to enter and leave israel without having any evidence on my passport of having been there? I have a friend in Lebanon who wants me to visit him sometime when I'm abroad, but I can't go to Lebanon without having been in Israel.....

    I've heard that you can just have them stamp a card and (from Jordan) you have to enter and leave Jordan from the King Housein Bridge border crossing.

    Can anyone corroborate this?

    I assume you're referring to the fact that Lebanon won't let you enter if you have an Israeli passport stamp in your passport, correct? It's actually rather common to have your entrance stamp done a separate paper. Ask the Israeli customs to enter Israel on form AL – 17 and not having your passport stamped. Just make sure you keep the paper on you.
