Shas: Lieberman Will Turn Us into a Nation of Goyim

ovadia2.jpgOver 200,000 people on Monday received a recorded phone message from Shas leader Eli Yishai, who is rightfully growing concerned over the popularity of Yisrael Beitenu leader Avigdor Lieberman. Polls are now showing Lieberman’s party will take 18 seats in the next Knesset.
Lieberman’s campaign has also been targeting development towns, previously Shas’ turf, and there is a growing number of former Shas supporters now signaling they plan to vote for Yisrael Beitenu, which exhibits a more hard-line right-wing stance, a welcome position following eight years of rocket attacks in the south. Shas on the other hand, while perceived as right-wing does not stress this aspect of its platform, but prefers to boast its efforts towards the restoration and continuation of Torah values in Israeli life, with an emphasis on the Sephardic community.

Yishai’s recording mentions Lieberman’s promise of civil marriages and the sale of pork nationwide. “This will lead to widespread assimilation” Yishai warns, adding “hundreds of thousands of non-Jewish children, a reality that will destroy the Jewish character of the state.”
“If Lieberman receives many seats in Knesset, he will turn the state into a state of goyim.”

  1. Yisrael Beitenu has its faults, but in this case, Shas is the “pot calling the kettle black.” Unfortunately, several of their former Knesset members have been indicted for fraud, forgery, and bribery. Furthermore, it just came to light that they prepared ads to go on the radio with Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef blessing those who will vote for Shas in the upcoming election. Fortunately, the Elections Committee barred the ads from being aired.

  2. Aside from Lieberman’s anti – religious leanings, he also has said he is willing to divide Yerushalayim. He is a fraud, he spouts right wing philosophy when in suits him before elections but in reality he is a leftist!

  3. My Dear Rabbi of Berlin, good to hear from you again! Unfortunately, I must disagree with you and your attitude yet another time. The gedolim in EY (who are not in the Rabbanut and therefore do not have interests and do not “dominate” anything) have all clearly pointed out the problems of these giyyurim mainly the lack of a proper kabbolas mitzvos. Also, it has been now proven that many of the signed certificates were signed by Rabbonim who were not even present at the ceremony and occasionally were even out of the country at the time.

    Please try to at least attempt to know your facts before blasting anything that seems chareidi to you.

    All the best!

  4. YEP! Shas is scared! Leiberman is representing the hard blue collar worker in this country who sick of seeing his tax dollars going to a community that looks down on the worker! What do the heredim think all Jews are rich? I work 60 hours a week, have 6 kids, and am barely getting by. No longer do I want my money going to people that refuse to work. I still have time for a learning seder as well! LEIBERMAN FOR PRIME MINISTER! He’s right wing and represents the worker.. and He is NOT ANTI RELIGIOUS! HIS DAUGHTER IS BAAL TESHUVA!
