If you make it back home, good luck explaining it to either the Israelis or the US officials at the border. If you are an Israeli citizen, I believe you are committing a crime.
Do you really want to go?


Is it any worse than going to Iran? (DDF has a TR from Iran)

@Hershelsdeals

As far as I know he hasn't experienced any issues because of that.

No tfilin, no Jewish things, no accidental hebrew on your t-shirt or the bottom of your sandals, no kosher food.
Do you only want to stay in Beirut? Is it a stunt for 24 hours or you want to see the country?

While I would think so, it may not be that bad. Also it may be better telling them that your Jewish upfront rather then "catch" you and arrest you on espionage etc.

The plan is to travel to a European country on one ticket & from there to Lebanon on another ticket. Therefore no one will know where Ive been. I also have two US Passports, which is always helpful.
How do you plan on paying for your ticket? They know if you're buying ingredients to make meth, they'll know if you've been to Lebanon.

i would assume much worse. Iran has a centralized govt with strong control and care about their image of not being anti semites just anti israel.  Beirut at least used to be one of the most dangerous cities in the world wth different terror groups running their own fiefdoms.
Im not Israeli. And I have two US Passports.
is that legal

Anyone been to Beirut? Or anywhere else in Lebanon? Can I get in to the country with a US Passport (no Israel stamps) even with my Very Jewish Name?
Can I sell you a life insurance policy? Good rates.

If trip is disclosed on the application, and the application is approved, it would be covered.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I've never seen a policy with such an exclusion.

Most insurers are likely to postpone an application with a trip to Lebanon disclosed. But things do sometimes slip through. Alternatively there might be a simplified underwriting application (for smaller amounts) that doesn't ask travel questions.

I want to visit the last remaining Jews of Lebanon.
Why do you think there are Jews there now? Or that they would want to talk to you? Most (perhaps all) left in 82.
If you go in as an American and you tour the country, especially if you have a local guide that you can trust then you will be fine. If you start looking for Jews, you will be in the hands of Hezbollah in no time. How they will react can be unpredictable. I would strongly advise against going. There are so many Muslim countries you can visit with little risk. Lebanon is an unstable place. Definitely don't look for Jews there. If there are - I am sure there are some - they will not advertise themselves as such.

When Israel stamped the passport you were able to get a 2nd one if you needed to travel to a country that wouldn't let you in with an Israeli stamp.

I have two friends (US citizens) that tried to go there and were detained and interrogated for 12 hours in the airport before being sent back home, they were told they are a security threat. They were wearing Chasidic garb. This happened last year. I don't remember all the details off hand.
