Eurovision Officials Ordered Jerusalem Not Be Mentioned as Israel’s Capital


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.

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