BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Europe prepares for cultural boostBBC News
Novelist Jan Kross and poet Jaan Kaplinski are among recent Estonian writers who have won international plaudits. Tallinn has a small but comprehensive photography museum, and another that recreates the historic old town in the days when Estonia was run by Hanseatic traders. Its Old Town is also one of the most complete in Europe, recognised by UNESCO. Like Latvia, Estonia recently hosted the Eurovision Song Contest.

And how we could have done with something to enliven 90 minutes of quite the dullest television this side of the world pool masters. How good it would have been to have had Terry Wogan, for instance, in full Eurovision cynic mode, commenting on the guests as they arrived. “And there’s Claudio Ranieri,” Tel might have said, “who changed outfits three times in the taxi on the way over here. “Instead we got fanfares and pomp. But what else should we expect? Sky don’t do irreverence. Nor do they do irony, mockery or even gentle critique.

Israel deserves appreciation with weeklong celebrationUCLA Daily Bruin – The UCLA Daily Bruin
Israel is an oasis of freedom and progress for all people inthe Middle East. It guarantees equal rights to its citizens,regardless of race, and assures them freedom of religion. While gays are put to death in Saudi Arabia and imprisoned forup to three years in Syria, Israel proudly sent Dana International,a transvestite, to represent the country in the Eurovision SongContest in 1998 (and she won, by the way). Israeli women don’t have to ask their husbands forpermission to travel (a laughable thought if you’ve everheard one), as women in many of the surrounding countries arerequired to do. By the way, beware of publicly criticizing religion in Egypt orIran, but in Israel the freedom of ideas is so blatant and commonthat Israelis have developed a stigma for being too up-front abouttheir thoughts. For Jews, Israel has been nothing short of a haven. After WorldWar II, it absorbed hundreds of thousands of Europe’sHolocaust survivors who until then were being held in displacedpersons camps, many of which were simply renovated concentrationcamps.

European Quest: More of your viewsCNN International
Regards, Sarina PasrichaMusic, music and more music. Watch our report next week from Estonia which has a music festival to rival any in the world, and where we meet the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest. I recently returned from a trip to the beautiful nation of Slovenia. I’ve been around the world, and Ljubljana is one of my favorite cities. I was there for nearly two weeks and hardly began to experience everything this small country has to offer. Slovenia is being slighted, and you have no idea what you’re missing.
