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...
I could ask the same thing about Australia. :/
*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.
Israel is an invaded land it isn't a country so I don't care
