Ultra-Orthodox Party Is Kingmaker In Israeli Election

The Holocaust Was God's Retribution Against The Reincarnated Souls Of Jewish Sinners, says Ultra Orthodox Former Chief Rabbi

In one speech, Yosef said the Old City of Jerusalem, home to shrines sacred to Judaism, Islam and Christianity, was "swarming" with Arabs "like ants."

"They should go to hell — and the Messiah shall speed them on their way," he said.

On another occasion, Yosef castigated then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza pullout, then implored: "May God strike him down."
