Ты же корова! Переводчик Twitter обозвал победительницу Евровидения-2018

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday by acknowledging Israeli singer Netta Barzilai's win a day earlier in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, an global singing competition. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called her Israel's "greatest ambassador". "A very good morning".

Today is Jerusalem Day, the date on the Jewish Calendar when a large part of our Historic, Biblical Homeland was liberated in the 1967 Six Days War after thousands of years of occupation, most recently by Jordan. Barzilai said excitedly addressing her swarms of supporters to the background of illuminations lighting City hall reading "Netta", "Toy", and an Israeli flag in celebration of the victory.

Hours before the Eurovision song contest's kickoff, Rafi Kishon posted on Facebook a sobering message and a picture of himself wearing a head of lettuce for a hat.

The culprit, named Dr ACActivism, stole her microphone, leaving her unable to sing for around 15 seconds. Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress who portrayed the character in the blockbuster film recruited her own social media following of 19 million to support the home team, and apparently, they came through. "I am happy that we managed to create a reason for joy in a country that does not have a lot of reasons to celebrate", she said at a press conference after she landed at Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion airport. "Thank you for celebrating diversity!"

Others who congratulated Barzilai on her win included Labor party MK Merav Michaeli, who said Barzilai's victory was a win for feminism.

Hod Hasharon resident Barzilai, who studied electronic music in Israel's Rimon School of Music and performed with the Israel Navy Band for her military service, was the house singer at Tel Aviv's Bar Giyora nightclub for three years, toured Israel with an improvisation singing group she cofounded, and is a soloist with the touring group Gaberband. It seems that, despite Tel Aviv being the country's cultural capital and queer-friendly city, it would be in the disputed city of Jerusalem that next year's event will be held.

I love you all, my loves. Israeli actress and "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot wrote on Instagram about the singer, "You represent the real wonder in women. You stand for diversity and you bring fresh lovely light to the world". For example, "Hallelujah" became the country's unofficial national song after it won Eurovision for Israel in the late 1970s.
