Shas spiritual leader orders them to support regulation law
The Sephardic Shas party has been ordered by its spiritual leader, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, to vote Wednesday for the Regulation Law.Well they'd better remain true to the principle they've stated if they want to maintain credibility. Rav Ovadia's done the right thing, and they should not be putting government jobs above morale. Their loyalty to the land of Israel must come first.
Shas Chairman Eli Yishai told Knesset faction members that if it appeared that he would be fired as Interior Minister were he to be in conflict with the government's opposition to the law, he would consult again with the rabbi.
Earlier, Shas informed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that he would find no cooperation if he enforced coalition discipline and ordered members to oppose the law.
