Horror Story: If Arik Stayed Healthy…

There were further police investigations involving Ariel Sharon and his two sons Omri and Gilad, and reportedly involved a $3 million bribe. According to Haaretz, “The $3 million that parachuted into Gilad and Omri Sharon’s bank account toward the end of 2002 was transferred there in the context of a consultancy contract for development of kolkhozes (collective farms) in Russia. Gilad Sharon was brought into the campaign to make the wilderness bloom in Russia by Getex, a large Russian-based exporter of seeds (peas, millet, wheat) from Eastern Europe. Getex also has ties with Israeli firms involved in exporting wheat from Ukraine, for example. The company owns farms in Eastern Europe and is considered large and prominent in its field. It has its Vienna offices in the same building as Jurimex, which was behind the $1-million guarantee to the Yisrael Beiteinu party.”

On 17 December, police announced that they had found evidence of a $3 million bribe paid to Sharon’s sons.

The prosecution office finally closed the file against Sharon and his two sons only in 2012 – due to Ariel Sharon’s coma and therefore his being unfit to face trial.

So, looking backwards, yet through a crystal ball, I speculate that if Ariel Sharon had not had his stroke on 4th January 2006 he would have:

    1. Won the national elections in 2006 as head of Kadima

 

    2. Had a large Kadima faction (35 MKs) and strong coalition

 

    3. Re-drawn the Israeli/Palestinian border approximately along the route of the Security Fence

 

    4. Pushed/bulldozed through large scale evacuations from Judea and Samaria Jewish towns

 

    5. Done this either through negotiation with the Palestinians, or unilaterally (as with Gush Katif)

 

    6. Meantime, Sharon and his two sons would have faced corruption charges and scandal (as Olmert did), for his alleged part in the Kern Affair – and may, like Omri (and Katzav!), have ended up disgraced and imprisoned.

In short – if Arik Sharon had not been tragically cut-short with the massive stroke on 4th January 2006, he would have continued to do what he always did.

Make giant, dramatic and undoubtedly controversial impact on Israel’s history.

  1. Or, it is just as possible that Sharon, like his successors, would have responded to the barrage of rockets following the Gaza withdrawal by concluding that further unilateral withdrawals would accomplish nothing and not proceeded further – essentially leading to the same status quo as we have now. Perhaps he would have responded to the rocket attacks more aggressively. We will never know.

  2. Arik Sharon would surely have responded very forcefully to rockets from Gaza, particularly if this could disrupt his larger plans for withdrawal from the West Bank.

  3. Had Sharon been healthy, he would have had to answer the accusations of corruption. The continuation of the process of trying to withdraw while facing corruption charges would have driven him from office in disgrace. The development of the internet increased the pluralism of ideas in the Israeli public, thereby preventing a repeat of the brainwashing which enabled the expulsion. That's my speculation, also worth very little. Has Sharon stayed healthy, he might have behaved differently as well. Who knows what the developing situation in his brain did to his mind? His doctors also should have done bariatric surgery on his gut years ago.

    In my opinion as a senior American jew , I say that what ariel Sharon did against the settlers who he sent their in the first place, deserved the stroke that he received. I for one will never forget the black shirted Israeli soldiers pulling the settlers from their homes. What a disgrace. I spit on him and his memory.

  6. That's why the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Israel silenced him before his time! I believe, even now, YHWH holds the controls of the future of Israel – His people – and never le go off His hands! I wish Israel as a nation believes this.
