How Rumors Get Started
Only a few more days left now until the biggest, though perhaps not the greatest, annual cultural event in Europe – the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Israeli contestant, Harel Skaat, is considered one of the favorites this year, and his entry, “Milim”, has already been translated into both English and French. Even the Swedish experts, who don’t usually waste any superlatives on Israeli songs, seem to have fallen for Harel’s irresistible charm.
Harel Skaat has already arrived in Oslo and according to this clip, his charm is working wonders also on Norwegian school children. Now let’s just hope that they all are equipped with cell phones.
There is, however, one worrying aspect of that generally heartwarming footage. Toward the end of the clip, Harel – who is full of enthusiasm about his meeting with the Norwegian children – says to the reporter: “They’re so cute. I could eat them.”
Now I just hope that no one will alert Donald Boström, Åsa Linderborg or someone else at Aftonbladet of this obvious proof that Israelis eat little children.
