Israel is full of mainly european looking people.. :P
no its not
the definition of "what is europe" is pretty damn wobbly and since the "eurovision song contest" isn´t held by the european union but by "eurovision" (a broadcasting, not governmental union), everything goes.
i see... i noticed also Australia (!) took part dis year... o_Obut Israel takes part since 70s... so dunno how it goes...also Israel has been part of some UEFA Euros as well... pretty bizarre isn't it?
again. eurovision isn´t Europe. it´s a media institution, not a government. they don´t care about geography, they care about profit.
Have an opinion?
Morocco also participated in the 80's or 70's and Azerbaijan participates as-well
Azerbaijan belongs to Europe region-wise... no?
No it's in Asia, it borders Northern Iran
i've seen being mentioned as European country sometimes though... Georgia, Armenia as well...
Russia does too.
part of Russia's European...
*Middle eastern klaatu...by the way, Israel is a nation isolate that fact it's jewish and most of the middle east is muslim, also Israel are part of nato and have allies in Europe
most ME r Asian countries anyway... xept Egypt which's African...well maybe Greece/Cyprus/Bulgaria could count as ME as well (culture-wise)?
Seriously? No, Greece and Cyprus are european, If you mean turkey... turkey is middle eastern, but greece is not...
part of Turkey's European though... no?
Technically it is an country.
I could ask the same thing about Australia. :/
Israel is an invaded land it isn't a country so I don't care
