People are aware of what's wrong with Aryeh Deri

This article tells that all is not well behind the scenes at the Shas party with a 3-way leadership. But at the end, it also says something else that's reason to be optimistic:
A number of Shas MKs have also been told by constituents that Deri's return will harm the party.

"We've received more than a few letters from voters who said they supported Shas because it was a right-wing party, and now, with Deri, who supported the Oslo Accords, they won't vote for us," the MKs said. "Also, the talk about Deri having served in prison is not good for us. We hope that [the compromise deal] will pay off in reality."
Let's hope not. Just because Deri may be number two on the list this time doesn't mean he couldn't have influence of a bad sort. This is exactly why I hope those voters already disturbed about Deri's presence will consider voting for Rabbi Amsalem's new party.

Update: The Jerusalem Post wrote an editorial about why it's very doubtful that Deri has repented for his past offenses.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
