Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Revolutionary

The worldview he expressed resembled the dream of Israel’s founders of a unified national consciousness, but it was better suited to the true Israel.

It’s sad to see how in light of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s serious condition, images empty of wisdom not to mention respect for others are winning out. Those images are reflected in the contempt emanating from political commentaries weighted down with psychology, personal motives and gossip aplenty that are permeated with scorn for the rabbi, and in fact for his many followers.
