Prepared to answer this part Ally the rest is a tinderbox ,so I agree completely they should not be considered or entered into European competition , African if not Asian certainly not any for what they're doing now.
With Israel sitting backed by American " leaked" nuclear bomb tech on the former British Transjordan Palestine mandate it's a western foothold in the middle east at the end of the day, a middle Eastern nation" that embraces western culture backed by western tech.
That's why the money and pandering to, the USA provided air cover and UK helped
ensure the Israelis had the proper tanks and munitions, training for it to strike out on 3 fronts successfully in the 6 day war. Israel, attacked Egypt, Jordan and Syria, occupied the sinai peninsula, gaza strip, west Bank, east Jerusalem and the Golan heights despite an embargo on palestine, Israel became the dominant force in the region even more so when they developed a nuclear weapon out of thin air.
Anyway mhate the important thing is that they lost 2-1 to Romania but still have nations league chance 3 from 12 will go through they're one definately as a NL group winner.
HH Winter if qualify, I'm definitely taking a with me
