Is Israel in Asia?
YES. Israel is part of the continent of ASIA, specifically in the region called "the Middle East." "Southwest Asia" is also being slowly adopted as a more politically-correct 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" as 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 (primarily European) Eurovision song contest. Additionally, Israel plays in the European Football Cup.
