Wähl Schas oder fahr zur Hölle

Ynet meldet, dass die Schas nun alle Register halachischer Diskussionskunst zieht, um die Wähler von sich zu überzeugen. Kurz gesagt lautet ihr Slogan für die morgige Wahl: „Wählt uns, oder ihr fahrt zur Hölle” (wie gut, dass viele Strömungen des Judentums dieses Konzept erst gar nicht kennen):
Ynetnews - News - Rabbi: Vote Shas or go to hell: "Member of Shas' Council of Torah Sages says during sermon at Jerusalem synagogue that PM Sharon had stroke because he went with Shinui, hurt religious services "
Auch der sefardische Oberrabbiner Ovadia Josef, der ja schon klare Worte zur Flut in den USA fand, wies darauf hin, dass man „in den Himmel kommt”, wenn man Schas wählt:
Rabbi Ovadia told the enthusiastic listeners about a man who reaches heavens and fears God's verdict. At that point, a white angel appears and tells the man he is heading to heaven for building a mikvah (Jewish ritual bath) and a synagogue. The man says he has not done any of that because he had no money, but later admits he did vote for Shas.
The angel's reply: "Exactly. And by sending emissaries who built mikvahs and synagogues and safeguarded the world of Torah, you're a party to mitvzot and your place is in heaven." Therefore, the rabbi explained, anyone who votes for Shas will end up in heaven.
In his speech, Yosef also attacked the previous Likud-Shinui-National Religious Party coalition, saying "they brought us to a million and a half poor people and ruined the world of Torah.
"Shas must be strong," he added.
