Quote of the Day

[Aryeh Deri] is an actor. I am surprised that he did not use tear gas, as it works quicker. He shamed the honor of Maran [Rav Ovadia]

  -- former Shas MK Nissim Zeev

Zeev is referring to the report and footage, released to Channel 2 by Beni Elbaz, of Aryeh Deri preparing a campaign video in which he sings with Elbaz and the memory of Rav Ovadia seemingly brings him to tears. The footage shows that he was not able to force tears despite a few attempts, so he rubbed some onion juice under his eyes.


People are saying he treated his constituents like fools by doing this. Personally I don't see the big deal. He was preparing a campaign video. He was acting. You can't always bring tears on demand. Nobody doubts, that I am aware of, that he was close with Rav Ovadia and that he was sad and cried when Rav Ovadia died and surely he misses him and thinks of him daily, or however regularly it may be. The fact that he couldn't bring tears naturally during video production does not really mean anything about his relationship with Rav Ovadia. They are all politicians, so they are all liars and use dishonest methods. The marketing campaigns, videos and print alike, are all full of untruths and manipulations. Deri's was exposed, but this was not anything so ridiculous or crazy that he is worse than any of the politicians and marketing campaigns.

Personally I think his ridiculous statements in the interview I posted earlier today show Deri in a far worse light than this video of the onion eyes.
