Putting Pressure On Shas

Here's the latest political poster making the rounds in Jerusalem:



The sign says:
For Sale!
Capital City,Prestigious, In Excellent Condition, 3000 Years
For Details: Eli Yishai

Eli Yishai, Don't Sell Jerusalem


The problem is, Shas is immune to criticism. During the "Oslo era", the Israeli Right tried to apply pressure on Shas to leave the Labor-Meretz-Shas government. The pressure did not work then, and it probably will not work now. Shas is interested in the dissemination of Torah. For that they need to be in the government in order to receive as much money for their institutions as possible. When Rabbi Ovadia Yosef decides that it is time to leave the government, they will. Let's hope that it won't be too late.

Part of why I love your blog, Cosmic, is because you say words the proper way they should be said. This is a good example of it. Hazak Uvaruch!

He takes his orders, like the rest, and not from the public.

Just a bunch of wasted votes, but... that goes for almost all of us.

The 2 year pension plan kicks in soon. Watch the MK's fly...
