You certainly know this but however, just in case you forgot that Israel, since his independance in 1948 have always be linked, and this, for all type of competition (sciences, sports, arts) to the european continent. Don't need to explain why as the reasons are obviously and comprehensively political. Thus, as pkmn is a competition aswell, you should be assigned or at least authorized to join a european team(guess you have european origins like most of the isreal ppl today (or russian)). This for sure and only if you feel uncomfortable with middle east team for personal reasons (this solution still remains best as we all hope that in the future, the conflict with neighbours will end). Hope i helped you to clarify your situation if needed. :)
I saw your PM on IRV. My keyboard is not working so I could not respond. I am not dodging you. I wouldn't battle ATM either way. I only came on to get stuff done with my manager which couldn't be done either, as mITC has no option to send what I wrote via Google Translate's keyboard besides the one that is on my keyboard that is not working. If there were one, I would've talked to you.
Tomorrow at 9PM works. Think we could get it done a little earlier though? If no, note that I might be a bit late, 30 mins tops.
