Israel’s National Security Adviser Consults With Chacham Ovadiah On Whether to Attack Iran


chacham-ovadiah-yosefIsrael’s National security adviser, Mr. Yaakov Amidror, met on Erev Shabbos with Chacham Ovadia Yosef, head of the Shas Party’s Moetzet Chachmei Hatorah, to discuss a possible attack on Iran’s nuclear arsenal.

The 60-minute meeting took place at Chacham Ovadiah’s home in Har Nof, Yerushalayim.

Israel’s security cabinet is believed to be split evenly on whether to attack Iran. PM Bibi Netanyahu is believed to be a proponent of attacking Iran. Eli Yishai of Shas is said to be against it. Chacham Ovadiah’s stance on the matter could change that, if the gadol feels an attack is prudent.

Amidror, in his position as national security adviser and leader of the National Security Council, assists and advised the prime minister and government with respect to matters of national security.

  1. Not surprised he is after all one of the top leading Gedolim and whos Hadracha we need for anything in life. May he live to 120 years, amen.

  2. “It will happen in the end of days: The mountain of the Temple of the Lord will be firmly established as the head of the mountains, and it will be exalted above the hills, and all the nations will stream to it. Many people’s will go and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the Temple of the God of Jacob, and He will teach us of His ways and we will walk in His paths. For from Zion shall go forth Torah and the word of G-d from Jerusalem. He will judge among the nations and will settle the arguments of many peoples…They shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation will not lift sword against nation and they will no longer study warfare.”

    – Isaiah 2:1-5

  3. I’m not sure what the halachic issue might be that he is consulting R’ Ovadya about. Can someone elucidate? This would appear to be a purely military matter in the sense that the military advice needs to be the determinant on whether one should go to war.
