The Times of Israel, a fanatically pro-Israel and pro-Jewish newspaper run by leading Zio-Supremacist journalist David Horovitz, has published an op-ed piece by its breaking news editor praising vicious Jewish Supremacist racist Rabbi Ovadia Yosef as a “well-respected giant.”
Writing in the newspaper, breaking news editor Aaron Kalman praised the former chief serpahdic rabbi of Israel as the latter was taken up seriously ill- in an Israeli hospital at the age of 93.
“Hundreds of thousands of Jews from Israel and abroad are following the news from Jerusalem’s Hadassah hospital, praying that 93-year-old Rabbi Ovadia Yosef makes some sort of (miraculous?) recovery and regains some of his strength,” Kalman wrote.
“Rabbi Ovadia Yosef isn’t only an individual, he’s the last giant standing, the man who symbolizes the end of an era.
“Rav Ovadia left his mark on the entirety of Israeli society and also on many Jews living across the world. He did so in the political world – where he created a party that gave a large social group a renewed sense of communal pride, – but he also made drastic moves as a rabbi issuing rulings in Jewish law.
“Rav Ovadia was, in short, THE person you needed to consult if you wished to make a significant decision related to Jewish law (halacha).
“Rav Ovadia became known as Maran – a traditional Jewish title meaning the head rabbi of a place. Even when he was no longer the official chief rabbi of Israel, the title remained.
“Even as Rav Ovadia fights for his life, the inheritance battle has begun, with people clamoring to gain his title of Maran. While someone might net a political victory and be called by the name Rav Ovadia was, it’s clear that, at this time, no rabbi can fill the giant void he’ll leave behind,” Kalman concluded.
This fulsome praise for Ovadia is important, when it is borne in mind that this “giant” expressed many of the most viciously anti-Gentile comments in recent times.
For example, he is on record in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency as saying that “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel,” he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat.
“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat,” he said to some laughter.
Yosef, the spiritual leader of the Shas Party and the former chief Sephardi rabbi of Israel, also said that the lives of non-Jews are protected as Jews should do so for a donkey, in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.
“With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.”
And this is the man who, to quote Kalman, “left his mark on the entirety of Israeli society and also on many Jews living across the world”?
