80 families, whose relatives died in the attacks, appealed to the mayor of Holon Moti Sasson with the requirement to cancel the concert of the poet and composer Jonathan Gefen, to be held in the hall of «Yad Le-Banim» 4 APR. This was written by the Walla News website.
The authors of the letter asked not to provide a platform to the man of culture, who supported the attacked soldier Ahed Tamimi, comparing it to Anne Frank and Hanoi Senes. They point out that Yonatan Gefen admits that going from the stage to speak on political issues. «There is no doubt that his statements are similar to statements that he made previously in the media,» wrote the authors of the letter.
Note that after Gefen compared Ahed Tamimi from Hanoi senesh and Anne Frank, defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered not to broadcast his songs on the radio station «Galey TSAHAL».
Aviva Gefen, to intercede for his father, the Ministry of culture excluded from the program of the concert on Independence Day.
Himself Jonathan Gefen has already apologized for his words and called them «a big mistake». According to singer and composer, he just wanted to illustrate that not only the Israelis and Palestinians are trying to create national heroes. «My mistake was that I brought in this story Hannah senesh and Anne Frank. With the same success I could say about Gal gadot,» said Gefen from the scene in Petah Tikva.
In response to this apology, defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said: «One who admits his wrongs should be forgiven.»
