Political Prostitution

March 23, 2009 at 08:13 Leave a comment

A few days before the general elections, the spiritual leader of Shas, rabbi Ovadia Yosef, gave one of his traditional post-Shabbat talks to an audience of admirers. He then said, that voting for Israel Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman was like casting your vote on the devil himself.

Today, the media reports that Shas has signed a coalition deal with designated PM Benjamin Netanyahu, joining a future government — with none other than Avigdor Lieberman, who signed a deal with Netanyahu already last week.

Avigdor must be quite pleased: from satanic election foe to kosher-for-coalition in just a few weeks. That’s some spiritual promotion.

It would almost seem that the honorable Ovadia Yosef is practicing one of the world’s oldest professions.

And no, I do not refer to rabbi.
