Israeli singer Lior Narkis has found himself in the midst of controversy following a performance for Israeli Defense Force (IDF) troops, during which he used disgusting language directed towards Gaza.
An ardent supporter of Israel and the IDF, Narkis went beyond mere criticism in a now viral video from the concert, employing derogatory terms such as "w**re," "black," and “trash" to refer to the currently besieged strip of Gaza.

Born in Holon, Narkis hails from a diverse background.
Having served in the IDF, his hit single "Lekhol Ekhad Yesh" (Everyone Has) propelled Narkis to the forefront of Israeli music. This song, crowned "Song of the Year" in Israel, resonated particularly well with football fans.
In 2003, Narkis entered the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Words for Love" (the irony of which is certainly not lost on any of us), winning the national finals.
