Eurovision Song Contest held in Birmingham, U.K. 1988. - Winner Israel - Dana International singing “Diva”.

This post today was prompted by the response to an earlier post this morning by @LenHazell53, which was about a protest a couple of years ago in Israel by Extreme Orthodox Jews to The Eurovision Song Contest taking place on the Jewish Sabbath. My own opinion is that as Israel isn’t in Europe they shouldn’t be eligible to compete in the competition in the first place....however I digress, the fact is they do compete and in fact they have won it a few times. The first of these wins was in 1998 and was not free of controversy in Israel when it was revealed that the winner Dana International had been born male and had undergone male-to-female reassignment surgery to become female.

No idea why gender change is anyone's business.

Exactly.

I agree that Israel not being in Europe should not compete. What a set up stage! The best bit for me was the Charpentier closing the segment.

A great win for Austria!

@Marionville Ironic isn't it Israel objected to her representing them for having been born male, but not to her sharing a birth place with Adolph Hitler.

@LenHazell53 It all just illustrates that some folk’s priorities are fucked up beyond fixing! I enjoy a spot of aliteration! 😅
