Which continent is Israel on?
Israel is part of the continent of ASIA, specifically in the region called "the Middle East." "Southwest Asia" is also being slowly adopted as an alternative for the term "Middle East." Israel is very close both to North Africa and south-eastern Europe, but is not part of Africa or Europe. This is because the internationally accepted demarcation of the border between Asia and Africa is the Suez Canal; and the demarcation between Asia and Europe runs through the Urals and the Dardanelles, making Israel an Asian country.
It is important to note that for UN Security Council rotations, Israel is considered part of the "Western Europe and Others" group, since the Arab nations blocked its entry into the Middle East group. It also shares a lot of legal and cultural traditions with Europe.
It is also worth noting that like several other Middle Eastern and Caucasus countries, Israel is allowed to participate in the Eurovision song contest. Additionally, Israel plays in the European Football Cup.

Why do Asians smell sour and malodorous?
I grew up around Asians from several different countries. My best friend and my goddaughter are Chinese. Not one of them ever smelled sour or malodorous that I can recall. I think this may be a case of over-generalization. You may know someone with poor hygiene or with different dietary habits, but that can have an effect on anyone. For instance, if a person eats a lot of curry, garlic, or onions, the scent may come through their pores. If it is a scent that you are not used to yourself, you will notice it more.
