MK Auerbach Defends Party: Shas is Scared of Us


Number six on the Jewish Home list MK Uri Auerbach responded to attacks by Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef who said the party was trying to uproot the Torah. 

"Rabbi Ovadia does not open a newspaper and read, he gets his information from the three bandits, the leading trio of Shas…Shas is under pressure because we are taking votes away from them," Auerbach said. 

"Likud accuses us of being too religious and Shas accuses us of being too secular," he added.
