Hotel Oasis (October 24, 2004)

On September 16, 1998, a medium-sized casino (35 tables - later increased  several times - and 220 slot machines) and hotel (220 rooms) jointly  called Oasis were opened on the souther outskirts of Jericho. Owned by  the Palestine Investment Fund as well as foreign investors including  Austrian financier Martin Shlaff and South African financier Cyril Kern  and operated by Casinos Austria, the project was the largest private  employer in the West Bank with over 1 000 local and foreign workers  (mainly coupiers).
Hamas who originally opposed the opening of the casino, refuses to reopen it while heading the Palestinian Government.

Horseback Riding

I took some horseback riding lessons in Jericho. At these stables, former President Arafat keeps his black horse (it was a gift).The owner of the stables takes once a week some disabled children to enjoy a day out here and they also ride horses under attendance.
