It is more like the Shas party is corrupt. This guy is a criminal, he was convicted of a crime, and a pretty big one. Then his fellow Shas got him released, didn't care if 600 other dangerous criminals were also released. Remember Shas are ultra-orthodox and they are religious zionists too believing the Nile to the Euphrates belongs to Jews. The Shas demonstrate and enable this belief through their positions in government. Scary.
