MK Rabbi Chaim Amsellem, who broke away from Shas to launch his party continues to bash Shas, with his latest comments coming during an interview with Channel 2 News.
Amsellem called Shas “the outstretched arm of the Ashkenazi world, primarily the litvish faction… as soon as I decided to begin speaking the emmes I realized I was marked for elimination…once I became a significant person, I became a threat. One leaves Shas in one of two ways, either to prison or to one’s own party.”
Shas officials refuse to comment.
