    Ovadia Yoseph's supporters claim that that under his slurred incoherent gutteral speech, incomprehensible to the limited minds of us secular Jews and our goyum friends lies a brilliant rabbinical mind. Those beautiful and mysterious jelly fish of the sea with their massive semi transparent jelly like orbs resembling detached and floating "brains" with deadly long tentacles reaching out and stinging their prey into helpless paralysis before they are devoured help us mortals to to at least imagine the wonders of this great Rabbi. I do not underastand their "wisdom", much as I do not comprehend Rabbi' Ovadia Yoseph's "holy" secretions and sermons. I only know this. The minions of this tormented demon in a bizarre allinace with Lieberman and his henchmen, serve in our Knesset and wield a deadly power over the soul and mind of our nation. Nethanyahu is silent and smiling, The opposition is paralized, and the giant jelly fish float silently to shore.
