Due to his support for Amiram Ben Uliel: Aviv Geffen, Shalom Hanoch and Arkady Duchin canceled their participation in Ariel Zilber's performance. The 80-year-old singer clarified: "I don't support murder and at no point have I said so."


Singer and songwriter Ariel Zilber responded Friday afternoon to the decision of Aviv Geffen, Shalom Hanoch and Arkady Duchin to cancel their participation in Zilber's 80th birthday show due to his support for a crowdfunding campaign for Amiram Ben Uliel, who is serving a life sentence after being convicted of murdering the Dawabsheh family.

Zilber wrote on his Facebook account: "I firmly believe in Amiram Ben Uliel's innocence and in a just trial. I do not support murder and at no point have I said so."

The creator also claimed that "this is the essence of democracy and freedom of opinion that I have expressed according to my conscience." Zilber teased his fellow singers: "I regret that my friends chose to give in to pressure from all sorts of factors, and during this it seems strange to boycott my eightieth birthday show, which I plan to celebrate at the Heichal HaTarbut next month - together with everyone who supports the music I have created and that has accompanied the people of Israel for decades and God willing, for many decades to come."
