Issues of discrimination should not be resolved via the legal system, Shas chair Eli Yishai told Army Radio on Sunday morning.

"I won't participate in blasphemy, the matter of discrimination is solved through dialogue, not through courts," he said in the interview.

Yishai was responding to criticism leveled against Shas for not speaking out against alleged discrimination in the Emmanuel affair, in which dozens of parents have been jailed for refusing to send their daughters to the Beit Ya'acov school.

Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said earlier that those who turn to secular courts for justice will not take part in the "next world." Yishai refused to comment on the rabbi's statement.
