The Google Maps team added support for Street View in Israel's major cities this past weekend - Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa. If you haven't had a chance to check out Street View yet, it can take you on a virtual stroll down city streets right inside Google Maps - on the web or on your Android device.

For example, to check out Tel Aviv's views, download Street View on Google Maps, head over to Google Maps and punch in "Tel Aviv, Israel." Then click on the city name, Street View, and voila:

Pan, click, move, show your friends and family - it's especially impressive to those who have never seen Street View in action, which could be the case if, you know, you actually live in Israel.

For a quick showcase of the country's most famous and beautiful spots, check out Discover Israel in Street View's Gallery.


Please keep it civil in the comments and stay away from political discussions, folks - offending posts will be removed as they won't do anyone any good. We're interested in a friendly atmosphere here.

    All I want is peace in the middle east, and if I can't get that, what I really want is super detailed maps of of war-torn nations in that region to plan my "freedom" operations.

    I'm closing comments, as while some of you can keep it civil, surely others couldn't, and I had to delete most of the comments.
