Eli Yishay is Ovadia Yosef's student, and he currently runs the Interior Ministry which wants to deport children of foreign workers, stop immigration of non-Jews to Israel, prevent asylum seekers from reaching or staying in Israel, not recognize mixed marriages, and the list goes on! Anyone that thinks Ovadia Yosef is a lone rabi that has no influence on politicians should remember that the President & the PM don't make a move without consulting with him, and that his thoughts are being made into law via the Shas political party who he serves as its spiritual leader.
