Eurovision: Which Eurostar wants Israel banned from the contest?

Israel’s participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 has already sparked considerable debate. While the EBU has stated that it has no intention of excluding the Middle Eastern country as well as the participating broadcasters from the competition, there have been numerous calls to exclude Israel from the competition due to its opposition to the competition’s ethics.

La Zarra, France’s representative in Eurovision 2023, has now been added to the list of artists who have publicly questioned Israel’s boycott. La Zarra, a French-Canadian artist of Moroccan descent, specifically asked her Instagram followers to weigh in on whether Israel should be barred from participating in Eurovision because of “the crimes against humanity it commits.

While her followers supported her and expressed their desire to ban Israel, she later expressed her own opinion on the topic, mentioning that:

During my participation in Eurovision, I had the privilege of meeting an extraordinary audience, made up of passionate people full of love. We were all united by the music, transmitting a message of peace and love, both from the participants and the audience. As expected, the whole country supported Ukraine, and Russia was excluded from the competition.

Unfortunately, we are once again witnessing a massacre, a genocide of the Palestinian people, and with attacks in Cisjordanie and Lebanon. We are witnessing a calculated and deliberate attempt to take control of the region.

Eurovision is a political competition, and I am aware that artists are extremely afraid to express themselves.

However, the public, the public has the power to move mountains if they want to. The audience I met is filled with love and strength, which is why I am appealing to you.

Let’s ban Israel from this competition, just as Russia was excluded, because of the atrocities it commits.

La Zarra, however, does not stop there. She then inspires her followers to take action and raise their voices in a barrage of social media posts condemning Israel’s genocide, citing:

Let’s not celebrate Evil.

Let’s be in the good side of history.

    I love la zarra. She is absolutely correct. What Russia is doing to Ukraine is nowhere near as bad as the genocide and ethnic cleansing that Israel is doing. Israel has no respect for other countries either—ask Lebanon. Israel is out of control and should not be rewarded for its war mongering.

    You can’t mess with 1 billion Hamas supporters. Nowadays, neighbours that tear down fences, barge in, rape, burn and kill are victims. And the latter are the oppressors.

    Don’t agree. Moreover, if more people push against Israel this year, I swear, I’ve never voted in Eurovision contest, but this year I will vote – and it’ll be for Israel.
