Israeli Tech & Foreign affairs correspondent Amichai Stein just tweeted this: a document showing how Eurovision officials ordered that Jerusalem not be mentioned as Israel’s capital during the voting phase.

Let me enlarge that for you.
Which makes Netta’s speech after winning even better than I imagined – and perhaps an inadvertent “@$#! you” to them.
Israel wins Eurovision Song Contest!! Netta Barzilai tells millions of viewers, "I love my country, next year in JERUSALEM!" Mazel tov to Netta and we can't wait to bring Eurovision to Israel next year!

I would love to see how they will avoid mentioning it next year, when we host Eurovision…in Jerusalem!
