During a tribute show to the late author Yehonatan Geffen held this weekend at the Culture Hall in Tel Aviv, musician Aviv Geffen attacked the Prime Minister stating that he "benefits from hostages dying in Gaza," according to Walla.

"They are people who went and were pulled out of their beds in the morning on that cursed Sabbath day," he told the crowd, referring to the hostages who were taken to Gaza. "We have to do everything, go and protest and shout, until the last of them returns home. I know I sound extreme, this is my opinion of course, it's not something I know, but sometimes I feel that it benfits Bibi that they are there, that Bibi benefits form the fact that they are dying every day. Sorry if I sound a bit political, but I think Bibi is thinking about his government, and not about the families that bleed every day. I think it's time to end the war and bring everyone home."

Geffen went on to say: "My father passed away and he left us with a lot of shallow, stupid people. I think there is a sane audience here tonight, right? I would be very surprised if there are any pro-Bibi's in the audience today."
