Rav Ovadia's words shame us all, there's no way around that. He's like your crazy old uncle who you try to hide in the attic lest he say something offensive when guests come to visit. That having been said, all Israelis and Jews should denounce what he said. I would, however, like to point out that similar statements and worse are stated daily about Jews by muslim clerics. Alas, such statements are so common that they're not deemed to be newsworthy. Erekat would be a bit more credible if he condemned them as well.
