    This man is a racist and must be treated as a war criminal.Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, has called repeatedly 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 is one of the most powerful religious figures in Israel. He is known for his outspoken comments and has in the past referred to the Arabs as "vipers". "The Lord shall return the Arabs' deeds on their own heads, waste their seed and exterminate them, devastate them and vanish them from this world". No punishment would come from Israel "because its political culture and action are in line with [the rabbi's] racist statements". His remarks add nothing but hatred.
