You are going way beyond your imagination to call Rabbi Yosef as "mafia". Nobody is perfect including the Rabbis. First of all many of the so called "Jews" living in US resent religious Judaism and people who are observant.. People like you look for an excuse to lash out at one of the most respected Rabbi in the world. I'm a secular Jew too. But I don't go around calling Rabbis as gangsters and mafia. Rabbi Yosef came a long way in the 1980s as a voice for the Mizrahi Jews and established the Shas party challenging the ashkanazi orthodoxy who claimed that they were the rightful owners of orthodox Judaism.
3. Really?!

Let's not act all innocent about this. Despite the hyperbole of this 'whistleblower' his allegations make the religious ministry raquet seem like a kid's game complared to the nepotism and undemocratic nature of employment in Israeli government state health care jobs.

abstained during the vote for the oslo accords? It was ayatollah yusuf's sh-ass. How many of his party have been arrested, tried and convicted of crimes? About a half dozen or so. But it is wrong to call them a mafia. Members of the mafia do not go around acting like they are pious. Acting, not being pious.
