Rabbi Ovadia Yosef - age does not always promise wisdom

With age we expect a certain amount of wisdom to come, sometimes this is painfully just not the case.  Take for example, an 89 year old Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, founder and spiritual leader of the Shas political party, Rabbi Yosef is one of the most powerful religious figures in Israel.  On Saturday he said  “May our enemies and those who hate us be gone from this world. May the Holy One Blessed Be He strike them down with plague, them and those Palestinians, evil ones and enemies of Israel….Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] and all these evil people should perish from this world…”God should strike them with a plague, them and these Palestinians.”  Can we say that this was just a one time slip of the tongue so to speak?  Maybe, if it hadn’t been for the fact that in April 2001, he called  for the annihilation of Arabs…”It is forbidden to be merciful to them. You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable,” he said.

Probably the most alarming thing here is this man is a crazy spiritual leader.  Once you put God into any equation it is highly flammable.  Of course if anybody were to call for the destruction of Israel -i.e that crazy bastard Mahmoud Ahmadinejad all hell breaks loose.  But here’s the difference – Rabbi Yosef is a leader, a recognized spiritual lead of the very powerful Shas political party in Israel.   Israel is obviously directly involved, Iran is not.   Is he the voice of a few extremists or does he represent the majority?  One might even say that in essence this call for a genocide of the Palestinian people is akin to Hitler justifying  the holocaust of the Jews by using Godly and Biblical reasoning.  One of his most revealing statements makes this quite clear:

“Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.”  Mein Kamp
