Hebron Will Not Miss Sharon

sharon in coma

There is a story, told now for years, about how a famous Rabbi cursed Ariel Sharon, saying he should receive a blow on his head. People approached the Rabbi and expressed their opposition to this curse. So, the Rabbi then blessed Sharon, saying, ‘he should live a long life.’

It seems that both the ‘curse’ and the ‘blessing’ were achieved.

So what should this come to teach, what is the lesson for the future? This is what I ask the present Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, as he seems to be negotiating away our land, Eretz Yisrael. Be it Hebron or Shilo, Gitit in the Jordan Valley, or the Arab villages of the ‘Mishulash, on the eastern Sharon plain, bordering Samaria. This is all our land. It is clear that, at present, there are at least two parallel sets of discussions going on; those led by Justice Minister Tzippy Livni and those being led by Netanyahu himself, seemingly with Abbas, aka Abu Mazen. The US is pushing, but Israel doesn’t necessarily have to budge. That’s up to us; it is up to our Prime Minister, Foreign Minister (who today came out publicly in favor of an agreement), and the Defense Minister. And the others.

What will be in store for them, what will be their fate, should they choose to walk in the footsteps of Ariel Sharon?

It is difficult to fathom their blindness, how and why they reach such depths of absurdity – to even speak of such concessions, of such abandonment, of such expulsions, again.

One thing is very clear: the United States, and in this case, the Secretary of State John Kerry, is pushing very hard, harder than any of his predecessors in recent history. We can only imagine the types of pressure he is applying on Netanyahu.

However, it should be known, the word ‘Kerry’ in Hebrew has a distinct meaning: impurity. It is a term utilized to express a tainted uncleanness, almost a defilement, of body and soul. This term quite accurately describes the American SoS. Sometimes, such scum can be contagious. It seems that, in this case, it is starting to rub off on others.

I can only say: Bibi beware. Don’t fall into the potholes left to you by Sharon. And to the others, who can join him, or leave him, can support him or bring him down, your fate is too hanging in the balance. Purify yourselves from the contamination of Kerry. Before Sharon’s miserable fate will almost look good to you.

    When I see what Bibi and Zipi are saying, the total opposite is what they are doing, can I call either a hero? Actually they are "arev rav" the enemy from within.

    As a fellow Jew, I do have guilt saying this but – good riddance.
