Speaking during his weekly public Torah lecture Saturday night, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the founder and spiritual leader of the Sefardi haredi Shas Party, attacked – again – the government's plan to draft haredi yeshiva students into Israel’s military or civilian national service, Ynet reported.

"All those who wish us evil, who conspire to tear yeshiva students away from their Torah [study]- God will defy their exhortations and defy their [evil] thoughts, and respond to reward their heads [by turning their evil intentions back on them]. They shall speak and not a soul will follow them, because the Lord is with us,” Yosef reportedly said.

I hope God does a better job for them than he did for my Galitzianer relatives in 1942, when almost all of them perished. But I guess Holocaust studies are not part of the Haredi course of studies.

Parasites. Nothing but parasites.

"They shall speak and not a soul will follow them"

Right, that's why there's an increasing number of Haredi soldiers.

These old fossils are so out of touch with reality it's unbelievable.

Note he is not against charedeim serving in the army.
He is against the forced draft of people actively studying in yeshivas.

Many of Shas voters are not even Orthodox.

R. Yosef,
Keep talking that way. The government has finally grown a set of testes. They may just condsider your words as treason, sedition and possibly incitement. Your followers will be in the army and you will be watching from prison.

BTW even Aryeh Deeri served in the Army..
