If you're an American student (or tourist) in Israel, please (a) do not drive anywhere over the green line unless you absolutely know where you're going, and (b) if you think you know where you're going because you're using Waze, please go into the settings and check the box to "avoid roads under Palestinian Authority control." That won't help you in Jerusalem (the 'Palestinian Authority' doesn't officially control, for example, the road leading to the Mount of Olives), but it will help you avoid situations like what has happened this evening.MORE PHOTOS: Car of 5 American students in flames after Arabs attack them as they mistakenly enter Palestinian area. pic.twitter.com/2AbPrMn4Ct— Israel News Feed (@IsraelHatzolah) September 3, 2015
