Israel: Michael Ben David will be present in Turin!

Israel’s public broadcaster, KAN, has announced that the Israeli delegation will travel to Turin as scheduled to participate in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.

According to KAN, the security concerns in Italy raised by the Foreign Ministry strike have been resolved.

In a statement, KAN said:

The company thanks the Shin Bet (Israel Internal Security Agency) for it’s efforts to work for a solution for the security issues despite the difficulty, and we are confident that Michael Ben-David will represent Israel with dignity on the world stage. The operation of the Shin Bet as a substitute for the coordination activities of security officers at the embassy, ​​with a risk that may be posed to Israeli interests abroad in the long run, is a certificate of poverty for decision-makers who failed to end the foreign service crisis, threatening Israel’s ability to cope successfully with challenges in the international arena.

Israel’s Internal Security Agency said that their chief instructed officials to consider various options without the help of the Foreign Ministry because of the strike.

Israel will appear in the second place in the second semi-final on May 12.
