Posted by JewishIsrael
The staff and board members at JewishIsrael are Torah observant Zionists with a number of political views and preferences. We strive to address complex issues in an honest and forthright manner, which will appeal to all Jews regardless of political persuasion.
Although we regularly run critical reports on Knesset members across the political spectrum, we deliberately avoided commenting on the election.
However, we feel that the uproar caused days before Israel’s election over Israel’s Bayit Yehudi party’s candidate Jeremy Gimpel's remarks to a church group, recorded back in 2011, requires a truthful response, because all political sides chose to ignore what's most fundamentally wrong with that video clip…more
Bayit Yehudi came under a scathing and unfair attack by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, spiritual leader of the Shas Party. Rav Yosef declared that Habayit Hayehudi is "a party of goyim", a "home for non-Jews", they uproot the Torah and that "anyone who votes for them is a heretic.”
This photo of Shas leaders with baby Jesus, Mary and a Christmas tree should perhaps signal to the good Rabbi that Jewish people in glass houses should be careful where they toss their stones.

Although there were heartfelt prayers for compassion and work with the poor and suffering (which was the declared purpose of the world-wide event), the missionary agenda directed at Israel came through loud and clear.
