Furious Støjberg to the Melodi Grand Prix

It was a smiling Inger Støjberg (V), that met up on the red carpet prior to the dansk Melodi Grand Prix in Boxen in Herning on Saturday night.

But the smiles disappeared when the conversation turned to the demonstrations which have been from the revolutionary socialists prior to the large-scale Grand Prix.

Saturday, arrived the revolutionary socialists from the Socialist UngdomsfrontHerning by bus and train to put pressure on the DR and the Danish singers and get them to cancel the participation in the Eurovision in Israel, because Denmark is, according to them, 'should not be for the purpose of apartheid!'.

in Front of the Boxen arena in Herning, denmark, they were met by moddemonstranter, there is for Israel and their holding of the Eurovision.

- I think, frankly, they (both sides, red.) should take to keep their demonstrations to themselves. We need to have a great night, and it will be a great Melodi Grand Prix, we are going to stay in Tel Aviv not a particularly long time, it sounded determined from the foreign and integrationsministeren.

She stressed that in her optics no problems with holding the Eurovision in Israel.

- Israel is a great and wonderful country. I am pro-Israel all the way through, she said, and sent an invitation to the protesters:

- They can just go home and sleep. Such demonstrations, they have no place here. They must take their demonstrations to another place, for it is no place for a Grand Prix, said Inger Støjberg.

Event & Culture - 23. feb. 2019 - at. 10:37 Sigmund: I have better things to take me to

the Same approach had Støjbergs generals finance minister Kristian Jensen (V) and Morten Messerschmidt (DF), which, like Inger Støjberg showed up on the red carpet Saturday night.

- the thing is, Israel is part of Eurovision, and they should also be allowed to win. I believe that cultural exchange helps to create understandings between people, and therefore we think that one should be allowed to keep it in Israel, just like they should be allowed to keep it so many other places, said Kristian Jensen.

- I think it is absolutely amazing that you can keep the final in vinderlandet, and Israel won last year, so of course they must be treated like all the others, said Morten Messerschmidt.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------

Will not destroy the party in total, about 40 protesters, who had come to get the DR to stay home from Israel was looked after well by about ten cops. Photo: Mogens Flindt

Rebecca Søndergaard from the Socialist Ungdomsfront, which has organised today's demonstration against the Danish participation at the Eurovision in Israel do not have much to spare for Inger Støjbergs announcement.

- It is no secret that she and I have widely different political views, but I think it is incredibly important to put focus on it here. With regard to her comment that we should not be here, so she must keep in mind that we have freedom of speech in Denmark, regardless of what she thinks about it, says 18-year-old Rebecca from Copenhagen.

Even though the DR has said directly that they do not intend to cancel the long-planned participation at the Eurovision in Tel Aviv, bet Rebecca and the demonstrators that the increased attention will get them to think about a extra time.

There was the Saturday afternoon demonstrations both for and against Israel, so that one could hear both: 'Long live Israel' and 'Free Palestine' gjalde in the air in front of the Jyske Bank BOXEN. Photo: Mogens Flindt

- We are not here to ruin the party, but we firmly believe that the DR should not livestreame from an occupying power. Music and sport is never apolitical, so it can not be disassembled, even if it is what you hear as explanation, says Rebecca.

the Demonstration against the participation of Denmark in Israel was met by a counter-demonstration by those who support Israel and supportive of the participation of Denmark.

Both demonstrations were about 40 persons, and apart from a few heated exchanges, the progress of it all relatively peaceful.
