Israeli Eurovision Entry Gets OK

Published on March 15, 2007 with No Comments

TeapacksThe Israeli entry in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be allowed despite fears the track would insult Iran with its references to nuclear war.

Finnish Eurovision official Kjell Ekholm voiced concerns about Teapacks’ Push The Button entry last week, because he thought it could be deemed offensive to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

But Teapacks singer Kobi Oz denies the song is political and insists it only addresses the current worries held around the world about potential nuclear war.

Ekholm’s complaints have been dismissed by the Eurovision Song Contest organisers, and Teapacks now hope to wow judges at the contest in Finland in May.
