    Just because you are not a religious man or a fan of Rabbi Ovadia Yossef doesn't mean others should take feel the same attitude as you. Rabbi Ovadia Yossef was a very great scholar and very learned. There are also plenty of people who did think it was worth shedding tears for him considering around 1 million people came to the funeral alone and there must be hundreds of thousands who did not come to the funeral who mourn for him. what makes you so right iover 1 million are wrong? He was also a human being, should we not mourn for the death of a human being just because he was a rabbi? I would have thought somebody on the far left like yourself would have liked Rabbi Ovadia Yossef contsidering he supported the creation of 2 states and was very vocal about it. For the record I am neither haredii or a supporter of Shas. One thiing is for certain 50 years from now when many of the people reading this article we are all old or dead people will be reading biographies of Ovadia Yossef and his teachings,probably be able to buy portraits still .. In 50 years time I wonder how many people will have ever heard the name Yossi Sarid?
