    Rabbi Ovadia is very important for the peace process. He has great influence not only on followers of his political party Shas, but also on the Sephardim in general, because they tend to be traditional people. Also, he has high standing among the religious because of his much acknowledged Talmudic expertise.

Unfortunately, Rabbi Ovadia is not too diplomatic, but he has now corrected the impression he last made. May he live long.
