There's the Moroccan Wall between them and yes, they control it. If you wanna go to Mauritania, you have to cross the Polisario-controlled area for a few kms (gravel road).

You will still get an entry stamp for Jordan or Egypt in your passport, which will reveal that you came out of Israel. And that will be used against you in some parts of the Arab world.

I thought they've closed the border with Israel again, since the Muslim Brotherhood run the country. Relations were ok when Mubarak was still in power.

Theoretically yes, but how likely is it that they'd know the names of the border crossings of Jordan or Egypt with Israel? You can also have two passports with you (at least Slovenians can since not long ago) and hide the "wrong one" well.

How is possible to have two passports at the same time?

For example, you travel with both of your passports, one of them in your pocket. You commit a crime, local police takes your passport to prevent you from fleeing home. Then you use your second passport to get back home...

If you commit a crime, you'll probably end up in prison.

That cannot be difficult since there are hardly crossings between those countries.

A temporary second passport is possible in the Netherlands too, for business use. A businessman therefore can go to Israel, and fly to UAE a week later on his other passport.

Why the hell does UAE refuse passports with Israeli stamps?

It's an Arab country.

It's not really difficult, but would a random police officer in Syria or Iraq know them though? I assume there're very few people trying to cross the Syrian or Iraqi border who are actually coming from Israel. Although an Iraqi police officer might wonder how you got there from Egypt, if he saw their stamp, that's true.

Israeli authorities aren't really happy to put stamps on papers. You can ask them, but not always they do this and they stamp your passport the same.

Are there other passport stamps incompatibilities in the world? Can someone have troubles to get into North Korea because he has a South Korea stamp or to the USA with a Cuban stamp?

Yes, of course (and you can come fare away... from northern Ireland)

A curiosity... I have a job mate who is French and Spanish. He has both passports.
In Spain (I think I wrote about) there is an educational language official organization called "official language schools". Something like an advanced high schools only for languages.
There are someones with a lot of languages to teach and other with just two or three ones (they offer up to the European equivalent level B2 with an official title and some of them the C1 too).

And... in some language schools a foreing citizen can study Spanish (with the same level) and having the exam.
It is possible to have the exam without going to class. Just you pay the fees and have the exam in June. If you pass, you'll get the title.

My mate passed told me that, even if someday would need he passed the highest level of French (he was born in France and lived there for a long, long time) and the next year.... he used his French passport to book for Spanish title!!!!!!!

From what I read, US immigration may indeed ask a lot of questions if they see a nice collection of NK, Cuban or some Arab countries' stamps in your passport.
