Video emerges of Ovadia Yosef calling Aryeh Deri a thief

A stunning video has been released with the late Shas guru making damning comments about the awful Deri:
Explosive footage of the revered late Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef heavily criticizing the party’s current chairman, Arye Deri, was made public Sunday night, a development that could further harm his political standing and electoral hopes.

The footage from 2008 aired by Channel 2, which shows Yosef calling Deri a thief and a bad man who did not listen to the rabbi’s instructions, could severely damage Shas’s political future, given that political legitimacy in the haredi world is based largely on rabbinic support.

The recent establishment of the Yahad Ha’am Itanu party, headed by Deri’s rival Eli Yishai, has badly dented Shas’s standing in opinion polls, and the latest revelations could further harm the party’s political fortunes.

The latest poll conducted by the Panels Research institute for The Jerusalem Post and its Hebrew sister publication Ma’ariv Sof Hashavua had Shas down to four Knesset seats from its current 11 MKs, and Yishai’s party also with four seats.
Deri is getting what he deserves, but will he resign? He's told the Shas council he's willing to step down, but it could all be a special tactic, and for all we know, they could tell him to remain with an already sinking ship. No matter. He's getting just what was coming to him now.
