How come every question in the Israel travel section is political?

I looked at all the other countries in the middle east travel section and they actually ask travel questions. So here is my Israel "travel" question. What is the best beach town in Israel to vacation in?

I think a lot of people come here to smear Israel, that's probably why you see a lot of political stuff on this board.

As for the best beachtown, I have to completely disagree with gratvol on this one. Eilat's great for scuba diving, but the beaches leave a lot to be desired, especially because Eilat is a major port for Israel. I don't know about you, but I don't like to lounge  on a beach with a view of supertankers (don't get me wrong though, Eilat harbour is beauuuuutiful). I think along the Mediterranean coast, you can find beautiful beaches anywhere. My favourites include the Students Beach in Haifa, the Herziliyya Beach, and the Caesaria Beach.

Ra'anana is a suburb northeast of Tel Aviv. It is quite wealthy and has a lot of nice shops and restaurants. There are a lot of immigrants there, especially from the USA and South and Central America. You'll here a lot of Spanish and American-accented English on the streets there.

Hey Chechnya, how goes it? I bet you guys miss carrying around the old hammer and sickle, don't you.
It's easy for all the communists to open up politically on Israel.

Depends what you're looking for. If you want a real happening place with lots of nightlife, then Tel Aviv is probably best. If you want a more quiet stay, then probably Neyanya or Herzelia.

If your looking for a real beach town I would suggest Eilat.

Its way in the south, but it is warm in the winter and it has a bunch of beach and water related activities.
