Each federation chooses where they want to play. Israel was a political choice; In football years ago, they were assigned to the Oceania group in World Cup qualifying until they became full members of the European federation UEFA. They were originally assigned to Africa with the other middle eastern coutries which often led to walk/overs or withdrawals (because politics). Sometimes, it's for the level of competition: the Australia football moved from the weaker Oceania (OFC) to the stronger Asia (AFC).

Re: I often wonder why they placed Israel in Europe/Africa group

It's not very feng shui to have Israel constantly play Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan etc.... in any kind of sporting event. so yes, politics...
