Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu is a fantastic rabbi and a very sweet man like his father. His words were taken out of context (How unusual for the press..) and I hope he will be elected as Chief Sefardi rabbi. For that matter, I hope the next Ashkenazi Rabbi will be the son of Rabbi Lau. These are two are both the sons of 2 Great Rabbis, who were even the Chief rabbis at the same time! The apple does not fall far from the tree.
