1. He who plays with mud and worse gets smeared first-

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
2. Shas: Empowering destructive leftists & smearing patriots.
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.07.13)
Many times Shas empowered destructive leftists to wreak havoc against Israel. Most notaby with the Oslo Disaster, which cost tens of thousands of Israelis their lives and wellbeing. Now Shas is using smear tactics to stop Jewish patriots from rising to power. Yet more reasons to despise Shas.
3. Ayatollah

in jewish edition.
4. Peres and Rabbi Yousef:PLEASE RETIRE!
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.07.13)
And if you don´t retire,Israel must retire you two,once and for all! You´ve already ruled Israel for long enough.Enough. About Rabbi Yousef,I am under the impression(impression)that not even Yishai and Deri want Ovadia rulling bs anymore. Perhaps they should go and have a talk with Benett, for the sake of Israel...
5. #2 Chaim
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.07.13)
Perhaps it´s not Shas to be despised nor their followers,but Ovadia.
6. #3 I agree
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.07.13)
7. Shas wants it both ways, #5
SteveR ,   Dallas usa   (02.07.13)
No I think this is the classic case of wanting it both ways. They want to smear Bennett, call him a goy, ridicule him and then still get the goodies in the coalition. If they want to disassociate from this, then they can leave Shas and make their own party or they can kick Ovadia out. The Shas public ? They voted for pure hatred, as statements similar to these statements were made during the campaign. They should have thought about the hatred then and not now when they are not at the table for a good reason.
8. Israel is cursed with old "men" like
jason white ,   afula,israel   (02.07.13)
ayatollah yusuf and peres. Just because someone is old does not make him wise. It makes him old. And there is no fool like an old fool!

Arrogance and greed
14. Lashon hara
Elisha ,   Jerusalem   (02.07.13)
Or more correctly: motzi shem ra, straight from the 'great gadol' ovadyah...
15. Bennett smears sanctioned by Rabbi unrabbinical?
Jewish Doctor ,   AMERICA THE BEAUTIUL   (02.08.13)
BUT SO TYPICAL. a brilliant rabbi hiding behind his high office while kicking another in the groin, especially behind their backs...ah, so typical! And no shame too!
16. smear, yes, but is there truth in it?
ma nishma ,   modiin   (02.08.13)
I was going to vote for Bennett. I respected him as a successful business man and a person who would look after the interests of the Dati Leumi/Settlers. But I began to hear statements from him and some of the people in his party that disgusted me. So I voted for a different party. However it seems that the statements that the Shas journal (which I did not see) make are true. He seems not to have respect for anyone, neither his rabbis nor the Charadim, not for the dati leumi nor the settlers. Smear against him? possibly so, but it appears prophetically accurate.
