ISRAEL VS. PALtESTINE
The Israel VS. Palestine conflict has been going on forever.
It is very complicated, and there are a lot of different opinions.
Some countries only recognize Israel, some countries only recognise Palestine and some countries are neutral but I won't get into that, to avoid complications.
There is a video to help you understand it better.
FIRST APPEARANCE OF PALESTINE FLAGS:
The first appearance of the Palestinian flag was with the Icelandic Representatives, Hatari.
When the votes for Iceland were made, the camera pointed at the representatives, and they made sure to take out the Palestine banner.
Since the BDS have called for a total boycott of the Eurovision event, they have rejected their Pro-Palestine Gesture.
The Hatari members have responded with a positive message:
"We need to unite and remember to love, hate that's on the rise in Europe".
second appearance of a PALESTINIAN flag:
While Madonna performed with her new single, two of her dancers flashed both an Israeli flag and a Palestinian flag while hugging.
The Eurovision organisers said that they were taken aback by the display of the Palestinian flag on Madonna's appearance.
Madonna has responded on Twitter that they had no intention of breaking the rules and they tried to give a message that they want Israel as Palestine to be united as shown in the picture.
"I am grateful. For the opportunity to spread the message of peace and unity with the world"
