I did address it. As usual you refuse to accept it.<quoted text>
Please address the questions and other comments.
Who is the man? What sect of Judaism was he the HEAD of? Tell me about the scope of his influence and that of his sect. Explain the quotes below and expand on them by way of more information.
Hint:" Ovadia Yosef, born as Ovadia Yosef or Abdullah Youssef in his native language, is the former Sephardi CHIEF Rabbi of ISRAEL, a recognised Talmudic scholar and foremost halakhic authority"
"He CURRENTLY serves as the spiritual leader of the Shas political party in the Israeli PALIAMENT"
Shas is an ETHNIC party, its not a religious sect. Sephardim are an ethnic group. Do you understand this now?(Second attempt)
Furthermore, both Eric and COR have explained the difference between notoriety and actual influence. In other words, influce of whom? Religious sephardim WITHIN Israel. And not even ALL religious sephardim. SOME religious sephardim. Not even all the mizrachim. So what?
