The Eurovision Song Contest slogan was revealed yesterday in Tel Aviv. Dare to Dream will be the main theme of the upcoming contest to be held for the first time in Tel Aviv following the 4th israeli victory last year in Lisbon.
The slogan idea represents the main agenda that Netta promoted. Seek for your goal no matter what other people think and believe in yourself. As requires, the slogan represents the state of Israel as well. About 120 years ago the Zionist movement started and its dream was to establish a Jewish state in the historical land...and they did it 70 years ago.
Despite difficulties and yet to achieve long-lasting peace with neighbors, Israel is strong and prosperous. Israel is extremely excited to host more than 40 countries and to show the world a different perspective. The israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu also commented and expressed his own private dream - to keep ESC on it's "homeland" and have a second consecutive victory as happened back in 1978 with Abanibi and the following year in Jerusalem with Hallelujah.
The first semifinal of the contest will be on the 14th of May and the final 4 days later.

Get a look at the behind-the-scenes secrets of the Eurovision Song Contest! Imagine being sent to a scary country next door to terrorists!- Prepare yourself for this novel!
Alon Amir is a known name for the fans of Eurovision all over the word as he took part in many Eurovision competitions. He took part of several delegations including countries like Slovakia, Belarus and of course Israel, as a Head of Press for a long time. He was also international jury for numerous times in National Finals all over Europe; from Sweden to Malta, passing from Estonia, Bulgaria, Norway or Finland. He owns a successful PR and management company for singers and song writers along with a lot of appearances in television shows.
It is not a surprise that an experienced person such as Alon Amir could write a book about the Eurovision World. The book, 'Three Minutes of Eternity' is a reality pop, based on my many years of experience in the contest, and it's the first book of its kind in the world! But attention, this book is not a biography or a facts book. It is a novel:
“Can you imagine a situation in which you are representing your country in the Eurovision song contest and know that because of that you might die. Have you ever thought what it would be like to be guarded by 15 special agents who are there to prevent you from being kidnaped? What it's like not being able to make one move without knowing whether it's your last one?”
According to the author, he has experienced it back in 2012 when he was the head of press of the Israeli delegation to the Eurovision song contest in Baku, Azerbaijan. “It was, by far, the most horrific and amazing experience of my life, and I had to write a book about it” says Alon.
The book was released in Israel during March 2017 and you can get it now in it’s English edition at Amazon: www.amazon.co.uk/Three-Minutes-Eternity-Alon-Amir/dp/1981875964/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522773669&sr=8-1&keywords=three+minutes+of+eternity
