I find it hard to decide what the reaction should be to the implosion at Shas. Rather, the implosion of Aryeh Deri's Shas party. Some Lubavitchers like the idea of Eli Yishai because it gives them a viable option to the Marzel/whatever party that never crosses the line and makes the cut. Others like the idea that Yishai would most likely be more right wing than Shas had become under Deri, which we see now that Rav Ovadia himself now blames Deri for Oslo! That would allow at least 4 MKs to vote against whatever the leftists are planning once they take over. Until now Shas voted as a bloc. The general frum opinion is that Shas is better united because it allows for a stronger bloc against the Bayit HaYehudis and Yair Lapids of the world.
