The first show of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Israel commenced on May 14, 2019. It started with one of the best opening numbers in recent years. I cried tears. And even my wife, who doesn’t share much interest in the competition, had tears in her eyes:
Also, the performance of Dana International during intermission was a beautiful affirmation of love beyond all religions, races and the sexes:
When Dana finished her countdown, I even kissed my friend and arch adversary during the Eurovision Song Contest, Torsten Schlosser.
Thank you Israel! It was a great show in which love, respect, equality, hope and peace were celebrated.
The show was a light in the world, like Israel is.
