In a stunning abuse of rabbinic authority, Sephardi Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef says if you vote for Shas, you’ll go to heaven. Yosef has also allegedly placed a curse on those who do not support his party, proclaiming that it is halakha (Jewish law) to vote for Shas.

[Update] A recent teaching of Reb Ovadia’s, by word of mouth — òîì÷ (Amalek) stands for Avodah (Labor), Meretz, Likud, Kadima.
