Yaakov Margi, Shas Religious Services Minister calls the Hebrew Yated Neeman Newspaper "five grams of filth"

Hebrew Edition of the Yated Neeman
The Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox journal Yated Neeman launched a direct attack on Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, an adjudicator of religious law and spiritual leader of the political party Shas, over his decision to confirm that conversions to Judaism performed by military rabbis are legal from a religious standpoint.

The Yated Neeman article quotes anonymous senior judges and rabbis that attack Rav Yosef's decision, saying that IDF conversions are the very opposite of what is required according to religious law. Yated Neeman is considered to be the personal mouthpiece of the Lithuanian Haredi Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv.
R' Yosef Shiltah  VS
R' Eliyashev Shiltah
So, now we cannot have any normal Halachic disagreements anymore ...if the Yated doesn't agree with Harav Hagoen Ovadia Yosef, then they attack in the newspapers..... is this our Torah???
