Twenty-thousand people crammed into Tel Aviv's Rabin Square Monday night to welcome returning Eurovision champion Netta Barzilai at a hastily arranged victory concert. The live Eurovision broadcasts in Israel on social networks, such as on public broadcaster Kan's Facebook page, drew about 750,000 viewers. "Next year in Jerusalem!", - he wrote.

The contest largely shed its traditional hallmarks of glitz and glitter in favor of a more restrained and tasteful tone in Lisbon, which was hosting the event because it won past year with Salvador Sobral's sober and subdued ballad "Amar pelos Dois".

The scientists then compared data from countries who participated but did badly, to countries who didn't take part at all. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, a position with wide worldwide backing.

"People need to judge Israel as a whole country, not only by the security and political situation, but as a place with so much culture and creative individuals", he said. I love you, keep that going.
