    Must CALM downnnn...............grrrrrrr

    a very sensitive issue for me......
    visit most websites and its always located in the european section....but what really PISSES me off....is palestine WAS the country....and israelis joined it in the same way you may regard the kozovan refugees or romanians entering UK........
    Now....israel is a recognised state but PALESTINE??? where the hell is it in all the website drop down choices? it doesnt exist.....imagine UK being deleted and Kosovo 2 replacing it!!!!!!!! oh the ***** that ppl get away with in this world. I personally choose to ignore it.....when it joins eurovision or 'several' other european events i just laugh. And when someone asks me about israel i just say 'never heard of it, perhaps you mean PALESTINE.''

    Your right. No politics, but you honestly wont get a 'proper' answer, only some sly excuse like 'in the oslo convention, israel was established by european jurisdiction therefore...blah blah blah. You'll only get a political answer. The fact is it shouldnt be 'regarded/recognised' as european full stop.

    but if you look at the map, israel cuts a fine line. and FIFA splits the world up differently to political maps. because thats how they organise competitions. because you can even say north africa is in europe, but thats not how it is devided. israel's just one of them that could be on both.

    well, as history shows - The Zionist Rightist state is indeed a law unto itself, which is rather sad - as a facist state should be totally rejected by the rest of Europe

    Not really, if you look at the world map then if you were to talk about a 'fine line' then some of egypt and the arab countries would be 'considered' european as well
