Divine Retribution?

Pat Robertson suggested that the problems ailing Ariel Sharon are due to forcing the settlers to leave their land, and giving it to the Palestinians.

"He was dividing God's land, and I would say, 'Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the [European Union], the United Nations or the United States of America,'" Robertson told viewers of his long-running television show, "The 700 Club."

"God says, 'This land belongs to me, and you'd better leave it alone,'" he said.

That's what Pat said, alright. If I wasn't shomer negiah, I'd give that man a high five.

I'm not hoping Sharon dies. I'm not glad for the situation. But I can't help but wonder if Hashem is giving him a swift kick in the tuchas. Stopping him, perhaps, from making any more insane "political" decisions.

I'm happy Pat Robertson can make such a strong claim that eretz yisroel is G-d's land, and I wish other Jews would stand with him (like Sharon, for instance).

All that being said, may G-d bless Ariel Sharon. I don't wish pain or suffering on anyone, especially another Jew.
