Liberman Slams 'Bolshevik' Music Award Snub of Religious Singer


Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman criticized the decision by ACUM, the national union of composers and musicians, to give musician Ariel Zilber a prize only on his contribution to music, and not the Naomi Shemer Prize for lifetime achievement that it was announced last month he would receive.

Liberman wrote on his Facebook this Monday "the capitulation of ACUM and the decision to give Ariel Zilber a prize only on his contribution to Israeli music instead of a lifetime achievement award is a dangerous submission and flattery of the Bolshevism of radical leftists."
