Far-left MK recalls Yosef ruled ‘for the sake of peace, it is permissible to give up on sovereignty in Jerusalem’

Far-left lawmaker Dov Khenin, of the mixed Arab-Jewish Hadash party, posted a scan of an old newspaper article, which quotes the rabbi as ruling that, “for the sake of peace, it is permissible to give up on sovereignty in Jerusalem.”

“The saving of lives supersedes the [notion of] the Entire Land of Israel,” Khenin writes, quoting one of Rabbi Ovadia’s most often-cited rulings. “I express my sympathy to the family and a large community in Israel on the death of one who was for them a revered and loved leader.”
