Where is Israel?

All Asia countries never accept Israel as a part of Asia, is that true? Because in Asian Games 2006, Israel not in the list. Before this, what I knew, only Islamic countries did not blessing Israel

    Israel is in Asia, and it sits right on the border of three continents: Asia, Africa and Europe.

    Israel being on Asia is an established fact, regardless what the countries of Asia may think and want.

    It is not true that Asia opposes Israel, and let us remember that several Asian countries voted in Israel's favor in 1947: countries of the USSR and Philippines. China was abstained. Many other countries in Asia were not in the UN at the time.

    I don't know what's the thing with the Asian Games, but I know that Israel participates in European games constantly.

    Geographically, Israel is in Asia. But politically, Muslim states have been blocking Israel's participation in almost all fields. That's why Israel participates in European sports events, in the Eurovision Song Contest and so on. After having been blocked from participation in UN forums for over half a century, western European countries finally admitted Israel into its block, but only under the condition that Israel does not apply for a seat in the Security Council.

    Kubie R, Israel is not in Africa. Good Lord. It is not far from Iraq, which is not in Africa either, and which I hope you are able to find on a map.

    The last time Israel participated in the Asian Games was in 1974 in Tehran, Iran. The Arab nations, which opposed Israel's existance, led a campaign to end Israel's participation in the Asian Games, so, in 1994 Israel became a European member of the Olympic Commitee.

    Israel is in the Mid-East. It is a part of Asia, although close to Africa and mainly populated by Europeans.
