'Fraid not. Asia Minor is the old name for Anatolia, the Asiatic part 
of Turkey, and is several hundreds miles away from Israel (just trace 
St Paul's journeys on a map).

On the other hand, Anatolia borders Syria, which in turn borders Israel 
to the north-east and, as you'll see from my note to Stephen, Lilium 
candidum occurs in the north of Israel. Looks as though it's spread.
