Ok, we all know the Eurovision sucks, but they've really taken it too far this time.

A while ago I reported on the TeaPacks controversy (controversial only if you are European) and how their song was being blocked from the Eurovision contest.

Then, after it was allowed, Eurovision wouldn’t let them use their entire video background.

Now during the stage one of the contest, the TeaPacks video was cut out for 5 seconds during the international broadcast.

Now Teapacks is out of the finals.

And people claim the JIBs have problems!?

While Teapacks may have lost because the Euros are Jew haters, I happen to think their song was also pretty bad.

it was pretty bad, but not as bad as last year.

in any, case

The truth is that more than six decades after the Holocaust, the only song Europeans still want to hear from the lips of a Jew is Ani Ma’amin.

You cannot go generalizing that all of Europe hates Jews, this looks very paranoid to me.
However not all of Europe watches this contest as you should know. It's mostly popular in eastern european countries, such as Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania etc, i.e. the poor ones recently joining the contest.
Personally i liked the song of Israel very very much. But if you go characterising Europe as antisemitic just because the song ddidn't qualify then i'm sorry to diassapoint you but YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

The name of the group is not Teapacks as every English news outlet calls them but rather Tipex (as in the white correction fluid).

As my dearly beloved, of blessed memory, was fond of saying: Even paranoids have enemies.

BTW, the Wikipedia entry for the band says that they were originally named after the correction fluid, but later changed the name to "Teapacks" so as to avoid any brand-name infringement problems.

Wrong. In English, they're called Teapacks. See their official website,

I think their runner-up song had even better lyrics (The Salami Song).

Well, the reason why it didn't qualify for the fial is because perople did not like the song. Besides, where do you get the idea that europeans are "jew-haters". No, they were just busy casting votes for their neighbours.
