Visiting Israel - What to do in Jerusalem - Middle East photos

Even though I spent more time in Jerusalem than anywhere else on my Middle East trip, it was there that I did the least street photography. Particularly in the old city, Jerusalem is swarming with tourists. I'd estimate that at least one in three people on the street was a tourist, and I couldn't help but feel I was just another nosy foreigner who can't keep her camera to her own private business. While I don't necessarily regret not taking more candid street shots, I would like to find a better balance between courtesy and the bold creativity candid photography demands. Any tips, photographers?
