The grandson of late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, Yonathan Ben-Artzi took to social media on Tuesday to say that if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being dishonest about the need to form an emergency unity government and is using the situation as a ploy to hold a fourth election “he deserves to get coronavirus and end his life in prison.”  
 
Calling such a scenario “karma," Ben-Artzi went on to wish the people of Israel a “happy holiday.”  
In a later tweet Ben-Artzi explained that anyone who uses the novel coronavirus for political gains should get it himself and that he wishes Netanyahu only health and for him to "stop telling lies and toying (with people)."  
The Likud party slammed the post, saying that he is "inciting for the death of the prime minister" and added that "even when the prime minister is saving the lives of Israeli citizens, hatred knows no boundaries."  
"Think that anyone will open an investigation against him?" The Likud post concluded. 
Netanyahu was reported on Tuesday as not having the coronavirus, the spokesperson of the Prime Minister reported.  
Ben-Artzi's grandfather, Rabin, was murdered in 1995 by Yigal Amir over Rabin’s decision to seek a peace agreement with the Palestinians. The Oslo Peace accords were the result of that decision.
