Poraz: Shas leadership has no manners

Secular Zionist Party Chairman Avraham Poraz reacted angrily on Sunday to comments made by Shas Torah Scholar Committee member Rabbi Shimon Ba'adani that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon fell ill because Shinui joined his coalition. "Even being a member of the opposition did not teach Shas and its leaders any manners," exclaimed the former interior minister. "The statements prove yet again the wickedness and lack of sensitivity of the Shas leadership," added Poraz. Poraz called on Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert not to include Shas in the next government.
