Following the appointment of their new, vulgar "spiritual leader", Shas is becoming more extreme
Less than half a year since the passing of its spiritual leader, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Shas officially introduced on Thursday his successor, Rabbi Shalom Cohen.
The crowning ceremony, held in the predominantly ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak in central Israel, was attended by hundreds of Shas supporters. The speakers laid out a new and more militant path for the Shas movement.
Rabbi David Yosef, the son of the late spiritual leader, said: "Now, when the hatred for us is so strong, when respect for the Torah and those who study it have been trampled, we say we are not a part of them. The Yesh Atid and Habayit Hayehudi minions -- there is no difference between them. The Holy One, blessed by He wants us to distance ourselves from them. We are separating from them."
Sigh. These are the same kind of people violating the Rambam's beliefs in making yourself useful by working hard in all trades, and they have the gall to say they're following God's wishes? Very sad indeed. All they're doing is enforcing the perception they have no interest in being part of the nation as a whole.
