I am assuming this is a serious question and to give you a short answer, yes it is. Israel is considered a Western country by most politicians and academics because a large proportion of its population are culturally related to other Westerners. This relation means that a lot of cultural, religious and political beliefs are shared due to the influence of things like the enlightenment, the development of democracy, equality etc. Furthermore, the State of Israel has from the very beginning been run in much the same way as other Westerners, by Westerners, largely for Westerns and using Western ways of thinking and doing.
