The threat from Iran erupted in direct proportion to the Chillul Shabbos taking place at and by the indecent song festival in the “...... capital of the world”.
HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita is quoted saying the Eurovision song contest taking place in Tel Aviv poses a “sakona to all of the yishuv in Eretz Yisrael” due to the massive Chilul Shabbos connected to the international event as it will take place this motzei Shabbos.
PM Netanyahu issued 30,000 work permits for Chilul Shabbos to accommodate Eurovision, as reported by YWN-Israel.
Rav Kanievsky is joined by HaGaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein Shlita, calling on the tzibur to gather at ‘chatzos’ on Friday for public tefilla in every shul around Israel.
According to a Kikar Shabbos News report, Rav Kanievsky said the tzibur should be mispallel that there should not be a ‘kitrug on Klall Yisrael’ as a result of Eurovision.
