Ovadia Yosef: May Abbas Perish from This World


29/08/2010 Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef Saturday night wished death on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and his people, who he called “evil enemies of Israel.”

During his weekly lesson, the rabbi said “Abu Mazen and all those evil men – may they perish from this world. May God Almighty strike them and these Palestinians.”

As Shas’ spiritual leader, Yosef’s words are another indication of the party’s leaning right. Just last week, Chairman Eli Yishai said he would firmly object to an extension of the settlement construction freeze in the West Bank. He also said he was hanging no hopes on the renewed negotiations because he does not foresee in the near future a Palestinian government with which an agreement can be reached.

A senior official in the Palestinian Authority refused to comment on Yosef’s remarks and told Ynet, “Even in Israel they have stopped paying attention to him.”
