Israel’s Central Elections Committee yanked a television broadcast by the religious party Shas in which its mentor, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, promises loyal voters “a place in heaven” if they support his party in the March 28 elections. The committee also blasted the secular Shinui Party for an ad that showed black-hatted Orthodox Jews being dragged off the streets of Tel Aviv, and had the ad revised before airing.
