Eurovision 2024, Aden Golan |  The Israeli Ambassador on Eurovision: – Expectations have failed

Israel's Eurovision entry, Eden Golan, has the wind in her sails. The UAE's ambassador to Norway believes that the hype surrounding Israel's participation is not representative.

Yesterday's result is an encouraging sign of the growing support that already exists for Israel in Norway, Israel's ambassador to Norway, Avi Nir Feldklein, tells NTB.

On Thursday, Israeli Eden Golan qualified for the semi-finals of the Eurovision contest. At the same time, she has had great success on the odds lists, and is now among the big favorites to win.

This is despite the fact that on the same day as the semi-final match in Malmö, there were large demonstrations in the city against allowing Israel to participate in the song contest due to the war in Gaza.

– What happened yesterday showed that expectations before Eurovision failed, says the ambassador.

– Those who scream the loudest

Also in Norway, several demonstrations took place against allowing Israel to participate.

One in five Norwegians responded that they would boycott Eurovision because of Israel's participation.
