    No. Getting into Gaza as a foreigner requires a lot of string pulled from people of "importance", not for independent travellers.

    Thanks for that. Thought it was worth a try, I have an Egyptian friend going in and was asked to go as their companion. Never mind, I don't want to risk not being able to go back to Jerusalem anyway.

    Ok, so I am not a diplomat, or part of an organization and I entered the Gaza Strip. It took 6 months to get permission, I would definitely try. I went directly to my Egyptian Consulate in London, and it took a lot of time but I got there in the end. At Rafah border, you may have to wait a while. I was told I could not enter but after a five hour wait and a bit of a fight, it happened and I went through. I went for "tourist" reasons, and I had to provide the consulate with the address at which I would be staying.
    I have no idea about the Israel stamps, I would suggest asking your Egyptian consulate. The only way you aare able to get there is through Egypt, I know someone Brtiish who was deported from Israel because she wanted to enter Gaza through Erez.
    Hope this helps
