Eurovision celebrates as Palestinians mourn expulsion

While Palestinians commemorated the 71st anniversary of the Nakba – the ethnic cleansing of their homeland in 1948, Eurovision got into high gear in Tel Aviv.

“This weekend, almost 200 million people will tune in to watch the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel, but, behind the glitz and glamour, few will be thinking of Israel’s role in fuelling seven decades of misery for Palestinian refugees,” Amnesty International stated on Wednesday.
