Rabbi Ovadia Yosef slams Rabbi Stav

Shas's spiritual leader, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, slammed Rabbi David Stav, who is running for the position of chief rabbi and called him "evil". During his weekly sermon, Rabbi Yosef claimed that Stav is "dangerous to Judaism" and his appointment to the Chief Rabbinate would be "as bringing idolatry into the holy temple."

Shas's leader backed the party's Knesset members who prevented a bill which would allow acting Chief Sephardic Rabbi Shlomo Amar, who is identified with Shas, to run for another term in office, fearing he would support Stav's candidacy
