Turkish PM claims Israel’s Eurovision win part of an imperialist plot

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claimed Israel’s win at the 2018 Eurovision contest was a scam, saying “Israel knows only how to kill, not how to sing,” The Times of Israel reported.

During an interview with Turkish television station, Yildirim said Netta Barzilai’s winning song “Toy” was “not good,” and claimed the voting system had been rigged by “imperialists” in order to ensure next year’s competition would take place in Jerusalem in order to “sow strife between religions” in the region.

“They let Israel win, even though they did not have enough points, so they could host the competition next year,” he said.
