    1. Well, if they keep throwing regulations on the contest that stifle artists’ creativity it may not! I mean, does anyone know what special restrictions were put in the 1979 or 1999 contests? I mean, I doubt a country would enter something as blatant a song called “I Hate Israel” but all countries’ songs are subject to EBU approval anyway… But entering something critical of Israel for their handling of Palestine or one that blatantly takes Palestine’s side should not be prevented from entering. It would be a bold move for sure and I don’t think it’d get to the final but at least one country has to be brave enough to do it…or send an Arabic artist or one that sings in Arabic. This would be a great, non-violent way to protest their involvement in Palestine, but it cannot be done directly. It has to be a good song, and approach the issue with sensitivity, knowing that just as many Palestinians have died as Israelis, and they cannot ignore that, and it should be in the final, definitely, but only six countries have the right to automatically advance, and one is Israel itself, assuming it still gets to host and doesn’t do something to jeopardise that status, because they earned it!
