Israel is hosting this year’s Eurovision Song Contest finale. The country was granted the opportunity thanks to Israeli singer Netta Barzilai, who won in Lisbon last year.

Not to be racist, but
There should be NO boycott, POLITICS HAVE NO PLACE IN MUSIC.

When you have no friends on your own continent, so you gotta use your guilt card to make Europe let you play with them.

This show was always a joke. All this multicltural, pseudo-anti political rainbow everybody loves everybody bias in contrast with extremely celebrated nationalism, a jury and phonevoters who give out obvious political motivated points to related countries.

I’m not watching Eurovision this year, how can we ignore the Palestinian people being killed and punished but the Israels supremacy

There's no doubt that your lot can and will kill at will in the air and at sea , but put one foot on the ground in labenon and it's a New ball game as all know ,the biggest difference is they do kill women and children.

How meney kid's did you kill this day or was just women, or what land did you take for them?hope you're all proud of your slfes it's not that long ago when women and children where killed for notthing,
Israel sings and makes merry while not far away Israel is shooting kids and pregnant women with sniper rifles and bulldozing houses. Enjoy your contest.

PLO leader Zuheir Mohsen tells the truth in 1977 about the invention of "Palestine" as part of the struggle against Israel: "The Palestinian people does not exist. ... In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan ... cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

Israel is not any state r country

Yes Please do boycott israel!!! This planet is ours-we the people of Earth. We do not approve of a criminal occupation of Israel! We do not approve of this out law that refuses to submity its nuclear facility to regulation. We do not approve of unaccountability for israel's anuclear arsenal of subestimits to be by this time since 1963 from 200-400 warheads. Israel's nuclear facility and potentiality of it's enrichment has not been regulated since the month JF kennedy was murdered in 1963.
Who cares about some small group of trash people? They are all hypocrites that obsess with the only normal country in the middle east and they don't care about violations of human rights all over the countries in the middle east. Anyway they are too not important, just enjoy the eurovision in Israel🙂
