Shas veteran Yehuda Avidan said on Sunday that anyone who knows Rabbi Ovadia Yosef knows that there is no one who wants and seeks peace more than him.

His comments came in response to the reporting of Rabbi Yosef's weekly sermon in which he called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians "evil haters of Israel" and prayed that, "the Lord strike them down."

Avidan explained that Rabbi Yosef sees the Palestinians as Israel's enemies but wants there to be peace.
