Is Israel in Asia?

YES. Israel is part of the continent of ASIA, specifically in the region called "the Middle East." "Southwest Asia" is also being slowly adopted as a more politically-correct alternative for the term "Middle East." Israel is very close both to North Africa and south-eastern Europe, but is not part of Africa or Europe. This is because the internationally accepted demarcation of the border between Asia and Africa is the Suez Canal; and the demarcation between Asia and Europe runs through the Urals and the Dardanelles, making Israel an Asian country.

It is important to note that for UN Security Council rotations, Israel is considered part of the "Western Europe and Others Group" as the Arab Nations blocked its entry into the Middle East Group. It also shares a lot of legal and cultural traditions with Europe.

It is also worth noting that like several other Middle Eastern and Caucasus countries, Israel is allowed to participate in the (primarily European) Eurovision song contest. Additionally, Israel plays in the European Football Cup.

What are some areas where mountain barriers might be a factor affecting the climate in Southwest Asia?

Two of the main areas that mountain barriers might affect the climate are in Iran and Turkey.

In Southwest Asia the climate is mostly arid, but looking in certain parts of Iran where the Elburz Mountains are located the climate there seems to be Mediterranean. Also along the barrier of the Zagros Mountains the climate is Semiarid and Mediterranean. Then in Turkey where the Pontic Mountains are located the climate is then again Mediterranean.

Ottoman Empire

What was the capital of the Ottoman Empire?

The Capital of the Ottoman Empire was originally called Byzantium before being renamed as Constantinople and was renamed by Ottomans as Istanbul.

It's says in my history book...: The victorious sultan rode to Hagia Sophia, the city's largest Christian church. There he offered thanks to Allah and gave orders that the church be transformed into a mosque. He decreed that Constantinopole was now a Muslim city, the capital of a Muslim empire, and renamed it Istanbul. The Byzantine Empire was no more.

The Ottoman Empire no longer exists, its capital was Istanbul. The capital of modern Turkey is Ankara.

Edirne was the third capital city of the Ottoman Empire, before Constantinople
