ARIEL SHARON IN VERY SERIOUS CONDITION

I've been watching CNN and FOX and MSNBC: Sharon has a SIGNIFICANT STOKE and a CEREBRAL HEMMORAGE and is UNDER GENERAL ANESTHESIA and IS HAVING SURGERY.

As one reporter said: he is not fighting for the Pime Ministership; he is fighting for his life.

I pray that a longer life for Sharon - in which he may give even more service to Israel - is consistent with God's plans.

He is a truly GIANT in Israel's history. If he crosses over, or lives but becomes to diabled to serve any further, then the loss will be very great, too. MEn like Sharon dont come around that often. Sharon is a courageous man, and brilliant and bold strategist - on the battlefield and in the political arena. he has advanced the cause of Israel and israel's security as much as any man who ever lived. God Bless Him.

Years ago, Sharon's reputatuion was unfairly maligned for being behind a mass murder which occurred in a part of Lebanon which was then occupied by the IDF. (This SLANDER has persisted with the islamothugs and their comrades on the Left.) This massacre occurred at the Shatila refugee camp; a few hundred Lebanese-Arab Muslims were murdered by Lebanese-Arab Christians. Of course, they blamed the Jew! At the time, Sharon was defense minister - and he resigned. Blaming Sharon for the massacre is like blaming Rumsfeld for a massacre of Taliban by the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan. IOW: it's ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. Anyhow, Sharon put the chapter behind him, and his comeback proved he was innocent of any wrong-doing.

I am praying for Sharon the Great tonight. And Israel. I hope Israel's enemies are not so stupid as to think that this situation makes Israel more vulnerable.

Reliapundit,

Thanks for the recount of the history of the Sabra and Shatila massacre. In my experience, even people who know about the Middle East, do not understand what happened there.

Sadly, the world's media has conspired to twist the truth of what happened, which has left Sharon tainted to the point where people have the idea he did something evil, sometime in the past, even if no one really knows what it was.

Sharon is a great man. And history will remember him that way.
