Nobel Prize Winner Professor Oman Endorses Jewish Home

Nobel prize winner Professor Israel Oman expressed his support for the Jewish Home party, endorsing the party for its focus on zionism.

Oman told Israel Radio that he felt positive about Jewish Home's campaign and it's efforts to avoid the usual slander that goes along with Israeli politics. 

"We are here in Israel because we are Jews and Zionists," said Oman. "We prayed for this for two thousand years and this is the central issue." Oman refused to address the recent attacks on Jewish Home by Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
