Being that Israel is in the middle east why is it allowed to enter the Eurovision song contest?

Israel is part of the European Broadcasting Union of which Israel is a member of,

Also, you can watch the ESC in Australia , Japan and Jordan although they can't actually participate (for reasons I don't know of)

Glad I could be of help LGW!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Israel is also an awful symbol of western Imperialism.

What a shame!  Sad

I know how long they have been in it Lindy!

Anyway, even if they are in the European Broadcasting Union why? its the EUROPEAN Broadcasting Union and Israel is NOT in Europe so why is it in the EBU? and therfore in the ESC?

Because Israel is a European country.(Why this is the case, I have no idea). Israel also compete in the European football competitions etc.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
