Islamic terrorists issue threat against Jedward ahead of Eurovision

TERRORISTS have threatened to target Jedward and other Eurovision participants at the annual music competition in May.

The Azeri terrorists, an Islamic group, have said they will target the participants of the Eurovision song contest in Azerbaijan as they are “European scum”. It has threatened the use of “knives and chemical weapons” at the contest.



The terror group said in a statement yesterday “Blood of the European scum must be shed by the will of Allah.”



The annual musical contest has attracted entries from 42 countries from eastern and western Europe this year, but the group said the Eurovision is “a nightmare for all Muslims.”



The statement comes after a widespread crackdown by Azeri authorities on the group in preparation for the contest - 17 members were arrested and one blew up himself and a policeman in recent raids.



Jedward and other travelling participants will now have additional security measures introduced for their protection. 42 Countries will send delegations to Baku, while thousands of fans are expected to travel to the Caucus nation for the event.



New figures have shown the 2012 Eurovision will be the most expensive ever staged, with organisers spending €50m on the competition, dwarfing the previous record of €27m spent in Moscow in 2009.



The Azeri government is keen to put on a good show for the international media, and has spent over €500m on Eurovision related infrastructure projects, including the construction of the Crystal Hall, the arena which will play host to the event. It is the largest international event ever staged in the country.



Meanwhile Jedward continue their pre-contest chart success in Europe, securing the number one spot in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovenia.
