Bituach Leumi.  Chisachon Lchol Yeled.
50 or 100?  Bank or Invest?  If invest, where?
Does anyone understand the risks?  Profits?  Is it worth the risk for the profit?

Please keep discussion towards the economic, not halachic.  There's a different thread for that.

There is a setting that keeps you away from PA controlled areas.

There have been stories of people following Waze and ending up in dangerous areas.

I suggest using Waze, but not blindly. Review the route before you start out(maybe with an Israeli) and keep your eyes open.
