Eurovision officials ordered Jerusalem not be mentioned as Israel’s capital

One after the other, 43 countries showed their judges' score at the Eurovision - and almost all of them made a similar appeal: Good Evening London, Good Evening Rome, Good Evening Paris. But for Israel? There is no "good evening Jerusalem," nor "Good Evening Tel Aviv": The EPA guidelines document reveals that in one case the facilitators did not name the city - our case: "Only 'Israel' to be mentioned."
