    Can you guess which country offered this charming song ? [translated from original tongue]

    The world is full of terror
    If someone makes an error
    He’s gonna blow us up to biddy biddy kingdom come
    There are some crazy rulers they hide and try to fool us
    With demonic, technologic willingness to harm.

    They’re gonna push the button
    push the button push the bu push the bu push the button

    There’s plenty of suffering
    In the streets there’s too much violence
    And we’re lucky to be alive without being wounded
    Tactical advances, fanatical regimes
    Tragic situation that bring tears to my eyes

    And I don’t want to die
    I want to see the flowers bloom
    Don’t wanna go capoot ka boom.
    And I don’t want to cry
    I wanna have a lot of fun
    Just sitting in the sun.
    But nevertheless

    He’s gonna push the button
    Push the button push the bu push the bu push the button

    Messages blow up all around me
    Missiles fly around and fall on top of me
    Cops and robbers run all over me
    Stompin’ down on me, messin’ around with me
    Alelai, Alelai, are you there, God, it’s me?
    This nightmare’s going on just way too long for me
    When I’m barely alive, the target’s aimed at me,
    Might be too early to say
    “I Gave My Life for Thee”
    Why, why, police patrol
    Wow, wow, paramedical
    Here it is in the prelims, a song with no “salam”
    Red’s not just any color, it’s more like blood
    Again I stop the breathing in my heart
    So my inner soul won’t bust out
    Here it’s a war, here it’s CPR
    Boom, boom, that’s what goes on here
    Between a rocket and machete,
    Writer and viewer
    Leverage and hostage,
    Heat wave wet weather
    Escalating up the stairs, locate on the border
    Nothin’, nothin’, that’s what everybody’s doin’
    Radicals radicalize, officers officiate
    Naïve people moderate, statistics they await
    They retaliate: We’re all resigned to fate.

    In a world crammed full of demons,
    We’re nothing but miniscule peons
    And champions with Jetons
    Decide what the deal will be
    Lazy managers give orders,
    Ocean liner filled with water
    And everyone drinks up to life while
    Sinking underneath the sea

    Could be… far too risky…
    I should sing a song of palm trees,
    And a desert void of flags
    Still, I’m… alive, alive, alive…
    And if it keeps on being so scary
    It’s only then that I will say…

    I’m gonna push the button
    Push the button push the bu push the bu
    Push the button

    It was Israel I think?
