Gedoilei Yisroel endorsed the Mayor of Modi'in Illit and now they want him out, because he wants to appoint an "Aguda Guy"

 Peace between Israel and Arabs must be at hand, because their is plenty of time for  Chareidim to fight with each other! Looks like the Army issue, is more or less taken care of. They are not going to the Army, because the רבש''ע, with the help of the Chilonim  are going to protect them and their Mosdos HaTorah!
 Litvishe and Chassidishe Gedolim pushed Yaakov Gutterman as their candidate for Mayor in Modi'in Illit.
He won! So you would think, "Oy! We could breath now!
No such chance! The Mayor made a big Boo Boo, he appointed an Aguda guy for Deputy Mayor?

Nope! He is not a Chilonie, No, he doesn't wear a Kipah Seruga Chas V'sholom. 
Yes, He is a Shomer Torah U'mitzvos.
So stop keeping us in suspense, what did he do?
Does he have a criminal past? Nope
Is he a molester? Nope
So what did he do already? I can't take it much longer! 
Here goes ... I didn't make this up? I don't have such a big imagination!
The one appointed is a member of Aguda! And not Degel!
There I said it!!
Crazy? No?

The machlokes between MK Moshe Gafne and Modi’in Illit Mayor Rav Yaakov Gutterman is intensifying and it is clear that Gafne is doing his utmost to unseat the mayor from his post.
A hearing was held in a Modi’in Illit beis din headed by Rav Moshe Kessler Shlita in which Gafne’s opposition to appointing Agudas Yisrael’s Tuvia Freind as deputy mayor instead the Degel candidate was heard.
One major question is the beis din jurisdiction to discuss the matter for according to Gafne, this is no ordinary Halachic machlokes but a sensitive public political matter that must decided by Gedolei Yisrael Shlita, no one else. 

Gafne used a psak from HaGaon HaRav Nissim Karelitz Shlita from a case filed against him from expellees from Gush Katif. Freind however maintains the issue has to do with monetary matters as well, making it the beis din’s jurisdiction.

Kikar Shabbos reports that Gafne was on the offensive, launching a scathing attack against Gutterman and his handling of the city. Gafne told the beis din that even Maran HaGaon HaRav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv ZT”L did not rely on Gutterman and this is the case today as well pertaining to Maran HaGaon HaRav Aaron Yehuda Leib Shteinman’s Shlita lack of trust in the mayor.
“I am stating in a loud clear voice that he does not represent gedolei yisrael” Gafne told the beis din.

Gutterman is a member of Degel Yisrael but he still wishes to appoint Agudas Yisrael Councilman Tuvia Freind as a deputy mayor and not the Degel councilman, Mordechai Goldberg. Gafne insists that the mayor is defying the word of Maran HaGaon HaRav Aaron Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita and is now working to oust him from his post.

Calm down, the two of you. While vehuyiso meshuga may be a chumra, it ain't no mitzvah.
