BDS campaign targets Netta Barzilai's Eurovision bid
Being odds-on favorite of winning Eurovision song contest, Israel's entrant Netta Barzilai targeted by BDS campaign; campaign shows Barzilai in uniform, calls to give Israel 'zero points'; 'Gunboat crews whom Barzilai sent off with her songs played a part in Gaza carnage,' campaign accuses; brushing off campaign, Barzilai says she 'feels ready for semifinal, hopes to make all of Europe dance.'

Barzilai's performance of "Toy" got rave reviews both inside and outside Israel.

Fania Oz-Salzberger, a professor and the daughter of famed author Amos Oz, tweeted that she "unashamedly" loves the song "Toy." 

"It's bold, fun, female, and chutzpah," she wrote. "What's more, she stands for my kind of Israel."
