Shas’ enfant terrible is a voice of Haredi sanity – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Chaim Amsellem from Shas. Amsellem is the enfant terrible of Shas. He’s a one-man opposition to Shas leader Eli Yishai and he fearlessly opposes Shas’ distorted worldview on all important issues

Amsellem understands the anger of the secular community that is no longer willing to be the donkeys who carry the burden that is growing heavier by the year.

Because once upon a time, 30 years ago, 21 percent of Haredi men did not work; now the number is at 65 percent. He is convinced that if the Haredi community does its bit in the army and workforce, the face of the country will change unrecognizably, hatred will disappear and thousands will be drawn closer to the Torah of Israel.

The manhunt for Amsellem is at its peak now. Yishai will do everything in his power to get him out of the Knesset. But Amsellem is the voice of sanity. He is the hope of us all, both secular and Haredi, for a more normal life.
