Eurovision Threatens To Ban Israeli "Terror" Song

"Eurovision is threatening to ban Israel's entry for its annual song contest in because of its "inappropriate" political message.The song is performed by the isareli music band Teapacks and is titled "Push the Button". It has words in french, english and hebrew and - have already been interpreted as addressing fears of a strike by Iran as well as attacks by Palestinian militants. In one verse the band sing:
"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."

Ironically, "the band's lead singer Kobi Oz, who is of Tunisian extraction, and is known for his witty and enigmatic lyrics, comes from Sderot, which has born the brunt of Qassam rockets from Gaza, and as a member of a Jewish family from an Arab country is a leading exponent of "Mizrahi cool"."
