FILE - This March 8, 2002 file photo shows Rabbi Ovadia Yosef surrounded by members of his staff during a rally of his Ultra-Orthodox Shas party in Jerusalem. An Israeli religious party official says the prime minister’s national security adviser met with a prominent rabbi and tried to persuade him to favor a strike on Iran’s nuclear sites. Israeli leaders have before asked the influential Yosef about hefty military decisions in the past. (AP Photo/Enric Marti, File) less
