Too many things that I can't download?

Well hello my future helpers.

 

After living in England for three years I moved back to Israel. I bought my Xbox in England, I buy my games from England and my Gamertag was made in England. Now. I have a bit of a problem. My problem is my location. Israel, as most of you probably don't know, isn't a supported country so I can't change my region. But that was an old problem that I had when I purchased 1500 points for myself to get the Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack. Sadly I couldn't and after a while I chose to buy another 500 points and get Hitman: Blood Money. Sadly Hitman isn't available to download in my location.

Now please don't look at this in a wrong way. Yes, I admit I have a problem but I am looking to solve it as soon as possible. This isn't the only time I got this message. I also got it when I tried to download the demo for H.A.W.K.S 2 which I also couldn't do. My question is, why? Why is it like this? That I can't download those games? Is there any way around this? If there is I would happily listen to the suggestions.

All help appreciated,

Shahar.

Sorry,

I don't want to bump this or be a bragger but I really want to know why? Why I can download some of the things but I can't most? Why is it like this anyways?

Israel is not a support LIVE region. You must physically be in the same supported region as your account dictates to download content properly.

Some content is region locked and since you're in a country that is not support by Live, it restricts you from being able to download that content. It's like this because of the laws in different countries. Microsoft has to follow each country's laws and that means they can't release everything everywhere.
