Top 10 Responsibilities of Israel's Chief Rabbis

I really hate to attack Rabbis, (even those who I disagree with), but the Israeli Chief Rabbinate has become such a joke. The Torah is often disgraced on the national stage of this tragic institution.
    Top 10 Responsibilities of Israel's Chief Rabbis
  1. Condemning Jews as "terrorists" when they spray paint a mosque in response to Arab terror. 
  2. Meeting with the pope.
  3. Beautiful parve speeches at the funerals of murdered jews, that omit calls for vengeance. 
  4. Calling for Shabbat to commence 10 minutes early as a tikkun when jews are kidnapped (prior to being murdered).
  5. Interfaith dialogue with the clergy of other faith communities.
  6. Refraining from addressing the contagion of untold numbers of missionaries that are stealing Jewish souls in Eretz Yisroel.
  7. Refraining from addressing the halachic issues pertaining to milchemet mitzvah, and the status of gentiles in Israel.
  8. Only quoting the Rambam when it suits your agenda. (And only reading from a standard censored version.)
  9. Staying apprised of talk-backs on online forums and urging Jews to exercise restraint in response to arab terror.
  10. Most importantly, understanding that politics and Torah don't mesh well, and always choosing the former so as not to have your masters think that you are too committed to the latter.
