Iceland’s Eurovision entry Hatari holds up Palestinian flag during contest


TEL AVIV, PALESTINOW.COM Iceland’s hair-raising heavy metal Eurovision act Hatari raised Palestinian flags during their appearance on the show, which had been steeped in controversy over its host country of Israel.

The band’s on-stage performance had been hotly anticipated, and their aggressive showing predictably disrupted the otherwise kitsch edition of the singing competition.

But the political elements of this year’s show hovered over proceedings, and the group’s members nodded to the controversy by holding up Palestinian flags as results were announced.
