Transgender Eurovision song contest winner Dana International has lashed out at European leaders following numerous interventions about the latest conflict between Israel and Hamas.
Following pressure from the United Nations and other non-governmental organisations, ministers from major European countries including Britain have expressed their concerns about the ongoing conflict between Israel and its terrorist-run neighbour, Gaza.
But these criticisms have not gone unmatched, with the latest rebuke coming from a former Eurovision song contest winner, and leading transgender icon.
Dana International, who was recently featured on YouTube dancing in a synagogue, issued a firmly-worded statement aimed at Israel’s critics. She said: “You need to shut your mouths, you have murdered millions and millions of people throughout history.
“Shut up Dutch people! Shut up Belgians! Shut up British people!
“You conquered half of the world. You raped Africa, you raped half of the world. Bring back Africa’s money!
“There is no nation in Europe who can come in guilt free and criticize Israel.
“[Israel] is learning our first steps of normal civilization, normal culture.
“Israel has a different mentality than Europe. Europe had many wars. Now it’s our turn to learn how to become more cultural.”
International’s words serve to highlight Europe’s alleged hypocrisy in hitting out at Israel. Her point, according to PinkNews, was made during a video interview in the Netherlands, which took place at the Israeli Ambassador’s house. It is unlikely that European ministers, who are always quick to hit out against the Jewish State, will heed her words.
