Pat Robertson & Rabbi Ovadia Yosef

Reading this article I almost fell out of my chair. The author is attempting to draw similaraties between remarks by Pat Robertson on Sharon and comments he claims were made by R' Ovadia Yosef concerning the Holocaust:

The rabbi, Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual leader of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party, gets much of his funding directly from the Israeli treasury by selling Shas' votes to the highest bidder. He is a serial offender who once said the 6 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust deserved to die because they were being punished for sins in earlier lives.
