occupation magazine – articles Today at 23:59
The titular head of the leading Mizrahi political party, Shas, has publicly stated his opposition to an Iran attack (Hebrew). Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is not just the spiritual leader of Orthodox Mizrahi Jews, he’s also the godfather of its political movement. His senior cabinet representative, Eli Yishai, will therefore oppose any effort to attack Iran. Yisahi is also one of the eight most senior cabinet members who will have the decisive vote on whether to attack. Shas is one of the largest of the governing coalition members aside from Likud, and therefore commands a great deal of authority.
