That's it! You guys saw enough....
No more looking at the tumedike videos, where you can see Maran Ovadia Yosef z"l calling Deri a liar and a thief......
Nope! they need to bring him back to lead the party and we cannot have videos appearing all over, that clearly shows what his Rav and mentor really thought of him!
The rabbis will continue to ban anyone joining the IDF, will continue to ban the Iphone, but there will be no problem bringing back the criminal!
A special beis din has been established to prevent the leak of additional videos pertaining to Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L against Shas leader Aryeh Deri.
It appears the “Shasgate” video will not be permitted to die down [yet]. According to an exclusive Kikar Shabbos report, the beis din has been formed to preserve Sephardi achdus and to prevent a repeat episode of a damaging private video finding its way to the public screen.
The report cites that leading Sephardi poskim fear additional damaging videos exist and are planned for release towards attacking Shas and its leaders as well as the Sephardi community.
As such, a special beis din was established at the behest of Shas Moetzas Gedolei Yisrael member HaGaon HaRav Shimon Ba’adani Shlita, and it convened on Monday 14 Teves including Rav Ba’adani along with Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef Shlita and Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron Shlita.
The meeting took place in the home of Rav Bakshi-Doron in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood of Yerushalayim.
The beis din was to meet to issue a decree to the tzibur at large that persons are prohibited to deal with these videos, those from the past as well as the present and they may not distribute photos and videos taken secretly. It is yet to be announced just how the beis din will deal with those who violate the ruling.
An official psak is expected to be published by the beis din in the coming days that will include the signatures of all of the rabbonim.
One can assume the ruling will be apolitical since Rabbi Yosef may not involve himself in political matters as a senior civil servant currently serving as the nation’s Chief Sephardi Rabbi.
