Eurovision 2019 Song Contest, to be Hosted by Israel: The Only “Democracy” Worldwide that Has Killed over Two Thousand Children

In-depth Report:

Holding the Eurovision Song Contest near to where 2172 Palestinian children have been killed since 2000, disregards the extreme brutality of the occupying military force of the host country.

Over two thousand dead children are equivalent to the massacre of the student population of maybe three entire secondary schools in Britain.  Yet the world that has remained silent, now intends to celebrate on soil just a few kilometres from where over two thousand children lie.

It will inevitably be seen as an obscenity, by all decent civilised people in Europe as well as by millions of viewers around the world.  Shame on those responsible for endorsing such a spectacle that apparently accepts the killing and injuring of thousands of innocent children as a normal part of the political landscape.

Those responsible only act in such a manner in the confidence that their own children are safe.  But those Palestinian children were, (and are), no different to our own, before they were cruelly injured or killed by bullets from a brutal army of occupation.

“In 2012, Breaking the Silence, an organization founded by former Israeli soldiers whose purpose is to expose alleged abuses committed by the Israeli Defense Forces released a booklet of witness reports written by more than 30 former Israeli soldiers. These reports document of Palestinian children being beaten, intimidated, humiliated, verbally abused and injured by Israeli soldiers.” – Wikipedia

It is a travesty of justice that makes a mockery of international law and the Geneva Conventions on Human Rights, and no respectable broadcasting organisation should be seen as being, in any way, a party to it.
