Federal District, that is
"Volksverarschung" at its finest!
Same in Italy, England, Germany.
The ruling power center is not an integral part of the territory of the ruled state(s).
State of Israel ... is a country in Western Asia located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
"... a country in Western Asia ..." What does this mean?
Just a countryside with some 'Western Settlers'? Or a republic? Or a monarchy? Or a terror camp for radical clerics? Or a refuge for outlaws? Or a money washer? Or a drug laboratory? Maybe a new political entity called Holy Land? Maybe the biggest OFF LIMITS ABC weapons camp on earth, atomic, biological and chemical weapons stockpiled for Day X?
