Israel's comatose Sharon can move fingers

2011-10-25 23:33

Jerusalem - A son of Israel's comatose former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon says his comatose father can move his eyes and fingers.

Sharon suffered a stroke in 2006 and has been in a coma ever since. Little has been disclosed about his condition.

"He opens his eyes and moves his fingers when I ask him to," Gilad Sharon told Israeli media on Tuesday from the US, where he is promoting a book about his father.

Traditionally a hard-liner, Sharon shocked Israelis in 2005 when he unilaterally pulled Israeli soldiers and settlers out of Gaza. He suffered the stroke a few months later.

Sharon, now 83, was known as a daring army officer who fought in three wars before entering politics. He was elected prime minister in 2001 and served until he was incapacitated.

    He gave Gaza to satan, the Father in heaven will not be mocked! Pay day is not over. There is a verse where it says, and they will long to die, but death will escape them, in other words, no matter how much the traitors of the heavenly Father suffers, they will not die, until they have become a good example! And before you call the God of Israel heartless, remember, that there is non more cruel than man!

    Adre: I'm no Christian/Jew but doesn't your religion say "Love they neighbor" or something. Palestinians and Jews are neighbors as far as I know. Looks like all Israelis and Palestinians is going straight to hell for bringing hate and death to their neighbors. Kinda ironic from where I sit.
