"HELSINKI, Finland - Eurovision Song Contest organizers said Thursday they might ban this year's Israeli entry, Teapacks' Push the Button, because of what they termed its inappropriate political message.The song, to be performed at the contest in Helsinki in May, overwhelmingly won Israel's competition Wednesday.It is sung in English, French and Hebrew and seemingly refers indirectly to Iran's nuclear ambitions and its hard-line leader, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."
A couple of mystifying points:
First, I heard that Iran is trying to get some nuclear weapons. But Israel already has them!!! Why are they not singing about THAT? Oh, I get it. They are anti Iranian nuclear weapons. It's an anti nukes song, Israeli style.
Second, why is Israel in the Eurovision Song contest to begin with? I watched these contests all the time growing up, and it just confused the heck out of me why Israel was represented. One year I even got the Atlas out to check Israel's borders. True, they are malleable and indefinite and are yet to be declared. But they reach all the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to Europe? Now,that's incredible.
Anyway, here's the masterpiece. It's an awful song anyway. Wallahi Sha3ban Abdel Raheem is better. I think he should go.
