Arye Deri reportedly offers to resign from Shas

Shas chairman Arye Deri has offered to resign from the ultra-Orthodox party in order to protect what he said was the faction's former spiritual leader, the deceased Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Israeli media reported Monday night.
Deri's move came after explosive footage of Yosef heavily criticizing the party’s chairman was made public Sunday night.
