A group of 200 Panamanian Christians of Hossanna Vision completed a 10-day trip to the Holy Land despite the wave of violence that has shaken the country in recent days.
The group has been one of the largest of Latin America and even worldwide, even as on these weeks there have been several terrorist attacks.
Pastor Roger Serrano of the group noticed helicopter flew over the Old City, and the presence of Zeppelin balloons in the air. Also he noticed the police presence in the streets which all together gave them a high sense of security.
The latest attacks of Islamic militants on Israeli citizens included yesterday the murder of a young soldier stabbed in Tel Aviv. At the same day a young girl was also stabbed in a different incident. A week before a car driven by Islamic extremist hit and killed a baby and an Ecuadorian young girl.
The events coincide with 10th anniversary of the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
Many of the Panamanian tour participants of Hossanna Vision said the next year they will attend the evangelical world meeting to be held here.
