    I see what you are saying akzent.

    You got countries listed from East to West in order until you see Israel at the very end of the West. Israel is supposed to be before Armenia.

    I guess the moral is that Israel stands with the West despite its location.

    Anyone who thinks sports are not political should look at this picture.

    I can't believe how good I am. I started this thread and then Mocco gets Mussulbes 1st round.

    That doesn't make any sense either Big. If that were the case Iran should be after Kyrgystan. I don't think there is anything political becuase if it were Iran and Isreal wouldn't be next to each other.

    BTW, Armenia is farther east than Israel.

    You are right! Looks like the countries are arranged from East to West from Kyrg to Georgia and then from West to East from Neth to Israel. The question is where is Iran?

    This brings me to another guess. The teams might be arranged religiously from Muslim to Christian/Catholic to Jews. This means that Christians stand between Muslims and Jews.


    This scenario can put Iran before Kyrgyzstan and therefore out of the picture.

    Yes, a religion-oriented arrangement makes sense because that leaves out countries like USA and Russia that respect and honor a mixture of different religions.

    There is also a political connotation since Israel is on the right while Muslim Kyrgyzstan on the left, meaning the right wingers are for Israel.

    Big I not really following. When you said where is Iran, where you speaking metaphorically or did you not see them in the picture? Becuase Iran is in front of the Israeli flag. The picture is taken at an angle. You notice it looks like every country is behind the country next to theirs flag. The Israeli flag can be seen but not the standard bearer.

    Ok forget it. Looks like the countries are arranged from Asia, to Europe, to Middle East. I thought it was Israel instead of Iran. I guess Russia is not there because it is either not considered Europe or because it is a part of both Asia and Europe.

    Still, Kyrgyzstan practices Sunni Islam while Iran is Shia. So it still seems like a religious arrangement.
