Was just watching the Israeli song at the Eurovision....

At Israel everyone are saying that because of political reasons we have no chance in winning this year... I guess its true... oh well... as if I care...  Big grin

So who's gonna win?

I voted for Israel. 50% because it was a good song, 50% because of political reasons.
Too bad the performance wasn't that good. She sounded very nervous.

Hey guys,

May I ask why Israel is represented in the Eurovision song contest? Are they not from the Middle East?

It has nothing to do with politics, the other songs were just better then the israeli one! & i am saying it as an israeli.

Yesterday night when the Israeli jury called to give their points they started as follows -

Here the israeli jury from "Jerususalem, the capital of Israel".

This was a political sentence and the message was very clear...

What do you think about it?

I think that the Eurovision is a total political event.

Israel does every competition together with the European countries. No matter if its football, handball, basketball, or singing (was there any real song yesterday Big grin ). Just because of the well known political reasons.
Or could you imagine a Israeli team playing football against Saudi Arabia in jeddah???

Israel's in the competition as it's a member of the EBU... but so is Morocco, so if they wanted, they could be in the ESC.
