Palestinian Authority Warns Against Holding Eurovision in Jerusalem

TEL AVIV – Israel’s Eurovision bid is in double jeopardy as the Palestinian Authority launches a campaign to prevent the 2019 song contest from being held in Jerusalem at the same time as new, unrelated, accusations by a major US record label have emerged charging that Netta Barzilai’s winning song “Toy” was copied from another song.
