Chacham Ovadiah Strongly Condemns Those Not Voting for Shas or UTJ


rav-ovadiah-yosefChacham Ovadiah Yosef, head of Shas’ Moetzet Chachmei Hatorah, issued sharp words of condemnation regarding those who will vote or build support in Israel’s upcoming election for any party but the two established chareidi parties, namely Shas and Yahadut Hatorah.

“They must be aware of the Judgment Day,” said Chacham Ovadiah.

“What will they answer Hakadosh Baruch Hu on that day? He will tell them that they forsook the Torah and left it in the hands of the evildoers. May G-d upset the plans of our enemies,” said Chacham Ovadiah.

Later, in his regular Motzoei Shabbos drasha, he said, referring to Rav Amnon Yitzhak’s Koach Lehashpia party and Chaim Amsallem’s Am Shaleim party,  that “Such a party represents a mitzvah habaah ba’aveirah. How dare they oppose our well- established party, with decades of experience and support of Torah authorities?”
