Hey, Raymond! Ashqelon is on Israel's South (Mediterranean) Coast, just about 10km north of the Gaza Strip. It's about an hour's drive from Tel Aviv. Not Judaea nor Samaria, Ashqelon is on the 'legal' side of the Green Line. That said, it's in the land of the ancient Phillistines...although not modern 'Palestine.' (Samson is a favorite son of the city, and the main beach is called 'Dellilah Beach.' When I'm there, I'll watch out for beautiful Phillistine women beaaring scissors.)
Please come visit, and let me know when you're coming! (This applies to ALL those on the board.) Shalom to you, Raymond, and all the best in 2017!
