Shas Spiritual Leader Yosef: Jewish Home is for ‘Goyim’

Shas party spiritual leader and former Sephardic chief rabbi Ovadia Yosef is urging Israelis not to vote for the party headed by Naftali Bennett, the Bayit HaYehudi Jewish Home party, calling it not a home for Jews but a home for gentiles.

Rabbi Yosef slammed the party after Ayelet Shaked, fifth on the party’s list, indicated that she supports civil marriage in Israel. Bennett and his party have also vowed to ease the arduous conversion process, raising the ire of Shas and other Hareidi parties by questioning conversion’s placement under the exclusive jurisdiction of “ultra-Orthodox” groups and raising suspicion that corruption has tainted the system.

“They call them the ‘Jewish Home’, but this is not a home for Jews – it is a home of ‘goyim’ [gentiles],” Rabbi Yosef said. “They want to uproot Torah and institute civil marriage. One cannot vote for them… Anyone who votes for them denies the Torah”.

“They are all wicked people who hate Torah and its commandments,” he said.
Bennett called Rabbi Yosef an “important spiritual leader”, who is loved and respected, and said attacks by Rabbi Yosef and leaders from the post-nationalist and anti-religious parties show that the Jewish Home is “on the right path” to being a bridge between the diverse sectors of Israeli society.

    Rabbi Yosef said. “They (Jewish Home) want to uproot Torah and institute civil marriage. One cannot vote for them… Anyone who votes for them denies the Torah”. Shas voted for Oslo which has uprooted Torah in the Holy Land of Israel and destroyed Jewish communities thereby instituted in their place Arab marriages, Arab communities and Arab centers for terrorists who have shot and killed thousands of Jews not to mention the thousands of missiles sent against Israel which now make us all live in terror. The question is, what party can we vote for that doesn’t have a history against the Torah and the Holy Land of Israel? It appears to me that the only party that’s honest toward the Torah and the Holy Land of Israel is Atzmah L’Israel with Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben Ari. I welcome any and all comments if they can prove that I'm mistaken.

  2. Hhahahaha faith+politics… They should build for THE Rabbi Vatican-like sinagogue with the balcony high above the 'am haaretz' in order to give them speeches from high… like his brother in Rome ;-).
