1. so a jew call for heaven intervantion
ghostq   (08.29.10)
on earthly matter, wow this is rerun, anyway he sound like the new testament preacher. maybe he can out source for chritians just in case the revrent will be under the weather.
2. He has forgotten two FAKE "jews"
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (08.29.10)
Those anti Rabbanim self proclaimed converts .
3. The Rabbis do not annoy me,
Salma ,   Palestine   (08.29.10)
PA response infuriates me !!
4. Jews pay attention to, and agree with Rabbi Yosef, in the US
Jake ,   USA   (08.29.10)
5. PA got it right - they've got it all figured out
observer   (08.29.10)
Let's hope the negotiators realise from this comment that they are dealing with a well-informed and sophisticated opponent. Ynet relishes the opportunity to dig up something controversial 'straight from the horses mouth' and the grand old man never fails to rise to the opportunity and deliver. It really is a weird tango between the two.
6. Oh where is MEMRI and ADL now???
Nour ,   One-State الدولة   (08.29.10)
Hiding in their holes. Murderous incitement against ALL Arabs is kosher for them.
7. wrong profession
Michael ,   Haifa   (08.29.10)
He is undoubtedly in the wrong job. He is one of Israel's finest stand-up comedy acts.
8. Politics
zznhl   (08.29.10)
Dear Hashem, please protect us from our enemies, from liers and from senile old rabbis with egos the size of whales after a lifetime of being worshiped by followers who think that the Bible was written in the 18th century.
9. Rabbi Is a Smart Man
M. Duvduvani ,   Yokneam, Israel   (08.29.10)
Rabbi Yosef is a smart man. He's just saying what most of us already know.
10. Rav Ovadia Yossef
Ricardo Macher ,   Karnei Shomron IL   (08.29.10)
Differently from the author of this article, Rav Ovadia has the guts to say what he thinks and feel, the 2001 interview has nothing offensive, it's pure true and it's 100% logical that you would like your enemies to disappear if they hate you and are violent to you (which is the case). Now, how this info arrives to the press? Is some shabaknik" attending religious services? Shame on you people!
11. The Rabbi is right
Arik ,   Holy Land   (08.29.10)
I think like him and many do. NO to those fake negotiations made to force us to give OUR land to murderers and Islamist terrorists.
12. "Even in Israel they have stopped paying attention to him"?
Akiva   (08.29.10)
Further proof the "palestinians" are divorced from reality. Chacham Ovadia Yosef Shlita is the gaon of our time and spiritual leader of the worlds (yes, world) Sephardi and Mizrachi Jews.
13. Interesting....
Philip ,   Afula   (08.29.10)
.....left over from the stone age.
14. Rabbi Yosef
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (08.29.10)
While you are praying for the end of Abbas and the Palestinians, why not also pray for the end of that monkey in Iran. He's the worst of the lot.
15. PA: Even in Israel they stopped paying attention to him LOL!
Shalom   (08.29.10)
They can tell this to the Arabs but to Jews all over the world - to both, Sephardim and Ashkenazim - he's one of the greatest of our generation. Who else but a Sephardi understands what Arabs are? Neither Ashkenazim nor the non-Jewish Western world understand the Arab mentality. May G-d give the Rabbi long life and may he merit to live with Moshiach.
16. to #6 those jews came from arabs states
ghostq   (08.29.10)
probably they know too well what arab behavior is really like. :)
17. Rabbi is wrong
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (08.29.10)
Yossef has it wrong. Israel's problem is not the corrupt Shoah denier who has American funding and represents no one. Israel's problem is that the Israeli government negotiates with him. If Yossef wanted to do something useful, he wouldn't have agreed to Netanyahu's anti-Jew building freeze.
18. #2 epikorus & his mirror make two
Laughing Jew ,   Sane Island   (08.29.10)
19. Every day, my theory that the Israeli people are the problem
Wissam ,   Palestine   (08.29.10)
is gaining strength. Israeli society itself is not only right-leaning but also racist and demonic. You people deserve what's coming your way. For us, it's all about the revenge process now, not "land-grab process".
20. But he's right
NYC Girl   (08.29.10)
Perhaps the rabbi put it rather inelegantly, but Mahmoud Abbas is a terrorist who was involved in the financing of the attack on the Israeli Olympic athletes. But somehow it's become forbidden to mention that inconvenient fact in public.
21. Israel's Ahmadinejad spoke
Beate ,   Holon Israel   (08.29.10)
If there were a God he would be insulted
22. reality
olim hadshim ,   tel aviv/israel   (08.29.10)
Thanks to Rabbi Yosef for his realistic comments.We need more of these kind of leaders.
23. If Israel's Prime Ministers would have the Rabbi's courage
Shalom   (08.29.10)
the Arabs wouldn't dare raise their heads. It's the galuth mentality that the leaders in Israel still have that causes the Arabs to play games with Israel and world anti-Semitism.
24. #3 Salma
bob ,   NZ   (08.29.10)
In an ideal world only the ''mad mullahs'' of the arab world are supposed to provide the curious public overseas with this sort of comedy routine The PA response was spot on
25. May Ovadia Yosef learn....
A Jeursalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (08.29.10)
to shut up!
26. 18 , you were forgotten too
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (08.29.10)
and how faster you all join abbass , how better for the real Jews as i am
27. Nour , against murderers it's not incitement
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (08.29.10)
and against those of their "people" who support them it is'nt incitement either . Sad to say it are only sane wishes , not reality .
28. Akiva #12
James ,   Herzeliya   (08.29.10)
I am a sephardic jew.. and this clown does not represent me. He is the representative of the north african jews and a pathetic one at that. If I was a north african jew, I'd be ashamed to have such a man as a spiritual leader.
BENJAMIN ,   SINGAPORE   (08.29.10)
30. and did he forget Oslo?
Eddie ,   london UK   (08.29.10)
his tacit backing of the Oslo talks? Perhaps his party had a different paymaster then!
