HaRav Ya'akov Yosef: Voting For Likud-Beitenu Violates Torah Law

Rabbi Ya’akov Yosef, a son of Shas'spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yoseftold his followers that anyone who votes for the Likud-Yisrael Beitenu list in those upcoming elections has violated a biblical commandment, Failed Messiah reports.

During his weekly public class, Ya’akov Yosef explained that the transgression fell under the biblical transgression of lifnei iver lo titen michshol, you must not put a stumbling block before the blind.
“[Likud Party head Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu refuses to promise not to remove additional [West Bank Jewish] communities. It is most worrisome when he speaks against insubordination. Only a fool does not see Netanyahu plans to expel more Jews from their homes. He is now working to persuade people to support him and anyone voting Likud has a hand in his sin,” Yosef reportedly proclaimed.
