Perchè non Israele?


The Eurovision Song Contest


Artist: Teapacks (from Israel)

Title: Push the button


The world is full of terror
If someone makes an error
He’s gonna blow us up to biddy biddy kingdom come
There are some crazy rulers they hide and try to fool us
With demonic, technologic willingness to harm
They’re gonna push the button
Push the button push the bu push the bu push the button

Il y a plein de souffrance
Dans les rues il y a trop de violence
Et on a beaucoup de chance d’être vivant même pas blessés
Avancement tactique de régime fanatique
Situation tragique qui me met les larmes aux yeux

And I don’t want to die
I want to see the flowers bloom
Don’t wanna go capoot ka boom
And I don’t want to cry
I wanna have a lot of fun
Just sitting in the sun

But nevertheless
He’s gonna push the button
Push the button push the bu push the bu push the button

Eurovision may ban Israeli entry due to lyrics on nuclear war

By The Associated Press

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.




‘It’s absolutely clear that this kind of message is not appropriate for the competition,’ said Kjell Ekholm, an organizer of the contest. ‘We’ll have all the delegation leaders here in Helsinki next week, and I’m sure we’ll talk about this case within the EBU [European Broadcasting Union] group.’

The song warns about the dangers of nuclear war, and the lyrics of the song refer to demonic and crazy rulers, and say that he’s gonna blow us up to … kingdom come.

Ahmadinejad’s recent anti-Semitic statements have added to fears in Israel that Iran’s nuclear program is intended to produce weapons that could be used against that country.

The Eurovision contest will be held in Finland for the first time after the local monster band Lordi was the shock winner of the competition last year with their hard-rock entry Hard Rock Hallelujah.

One of the 18 songs that had competed to be Bulgaria’s entry in the competition was dropped after it emerged that it was a copy of a song by Israeli artists Ron Shoval and Subliminal. The Bulgarian version even kept the original Hebrew-language chorus.



Why not Israel?
