Music is a huge part of my life and will always be. Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) is not the hottest thing on this planet, but I`m watching it every year. The Grand Final of ESC 2019 took place in Tel Aviv last Saturday, and 26 countries competed for the trophy.
The winner of the 64th ESC this time was Duncan Laurence from Netherlands with the song «Arcade». This is the fifth time the Netherlands wins ESC, and last time they won the ESC was 44 years ago where Teach-In won with «Ding-A-Dong», in 1975.
The Netherlands hosted the contest in 1958, 1970, 1976, 1980 and will host the contest in 2020, thanks to Duncan Laurence who sounds a bit like Chris Martin (Coldplay). Not a bad song, but was a clear winner? Not at all, and you should take the winner at this sircus as a pinch of salt.
Last year, Israel won with the song «Toy» by Netta Barzilai. Was it a clear winner? Not at all. The best song was «Fuego» by Eleni Foureira from Cyprus, and that`s still a big hit. So, there is something wrong here.
Netta Barzilai got 317 points from the Televoters, and 212 point from National juries. In other words; the National juries from all the countries in Europe didn`t have Netta as their favorite, but the majority of the people in Europe had. Random people woted for Israel by sending an SMS. Huh… Is this something we can trust?
Let`s take a look at another winner. In 2006, Finland won with the song «Hard Rock Hallelujah» by Lordi. They got 292 points, and it was all by Televoting while Monaco and Albania used juries. They were breaking the previous record for the highest tally in Contest history.
s song is the second Eurovision song with the word Helleluhay in its title. The first one is Israels Hallelujah, which got first place at the 1979 ESC. The difference is the text. Lordi`s text is about blood and sticky floors.
A girl with a face of an angel, and an urge to kill. She was sanctified by death, and don
t you mess with the devils bride. Can
t you feel the darkness falling? Cant you hear the heaven
s roaring? The deadite girls gone wild. Shes a demon in heat. And so goes the text.
Can someone tell me who the televoters is?
Netherlands won Eurovision 2019 despite Sweden won the jury votes. But there is more to come. Norway won the tele votes and this is very odd. Norway got 47 points from the National jury, but jumped to the 5th place with 291 points from the televoters.
Who is the televoters?
Many people in Europe hate the Eurovision because they believe it`s corrupt and borderline racist. The problem with the National jury is the geo-political games countries play when awarding each other marks. Greece and Cyprus give eatch other 12 points while Britain and Ireland treat each other well during the troubles. So can be said about Serbia, Poland, Croatia and Russia (post cold war).
On top of that, they say it is a «non-political» event, but it is. This time, Madonna did not have permission to make a political statement about the Israel-Palestine conflict during her performance at the Eurovision. Madonna`s dancers were seen wearing Israeli and Palestinian flags on their backs at the final in Tel Aviv Saturday.
The dancer with the Palestinian flag on the back was Mona Berntsen from Norway. It is well known what the majority of the people in Norway thing about Israel. According to author Hanne Nabintu Herland, Norway missed thousands of bombs after the bombing in Libya. Later on, it was revealed that they gave the bombs to Hamas who is a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist fundamentalist organization. Hamaz have only one goal: Genocide.
Norway have so far supported Palestinians with about $1 billion and Mads Fredrik Gilbert has been lauded as a «hero» in Norwegian media for his work in Gaza. Gilbert has a broad range of experience from international humanitarian work.
Since the 1970`s, he has been actively involved with solidarity work concerning Palestinians, and he has served as a doctor for several periods in the Palestinian territories. He has written a book about Gaza, but he has also been subject for controversy for his political activism.
In a statement made to Dagbladet in the wake of the September 11 attacks, Gilbert stated: «The attack on New York did not come as a surprise with the politics the West has followed the last decades. I am upset by the terrorist attack, but I am at least as upset over the suffering that the US has caused.
It is in this context that 5000 dead has to be seen. If the U.S government has a legitimate right to bomb and kill civilians in Iraq, the oppressed has a moral right to attack the U.S with the weapons they may creatae as well. Dead civilians are the same wether they are Americans, Palestinians or Iraqis.»
When asked if he supported a terrorist attack against the US he answered; «Terror is a poor weapon, but my answer is yes, within the context I have mentioned.»
Robert Mueller was the boss at the FBI at that time and he is the one that said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. But it was a big lie. So don`t blame on Bush and his organization. Nor the U.S government.
I assume we will hear more about that and the Deep State very soon. That being said: Trump warned about a was in Iraq. He was against it and said it will destebalize the Middle Eeast and he was right.
Madonna ended her performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with these words: Wake UP!
Jon Ola Sand from Norway is the European Broadcasting Union
s Executive Supervisor of the European Song Contest, and he havent comented on the political act yet.
