Ariel Sharon near Death, Israeli Media Report

Former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has only four days to live, Israeli media reported quoted doctors as saying Wednesday night after his condition deteriorated following kidney failure, which can cause his entire system to fail.

The Walla! Hebrew-language news site stated that a doctor at Tel HaShomer Medical Center said, “He can be kept alive much longer, but the decision is in the hands of his family.”

Jewish law forbids disconnecting medical instruments that are keeping him alive, but family members can decide whether or not to allow procedures, such as dialysis, drugs and resuscitation, all of which could lengthen his life.

Sharon, who now is 85, has been comatose for almost exactly eight years following the second of two strokes that resulted in his position as prime minister being taken over by Ehud Olmert.

Sharon’s sons have remained optimistic over the years and have interpreted every little movement in their father’s eyes as a signal of recognition, but doctors have said only a miracle could bring him out of his coma.

Sharon was a war hero and also engineered the expulsion of all Jews and the withdrawal of all soldiers from Gaza in 2005.

    Every Siren and every kassem and grad missile fired at us is thanks to Sharon. He uprooted Gush Katif and this allowed the terrorists to come closer to the South and have a shorter distance to firer rockets… He has so much blood on his hands… May he rot in hell!!

  4. It is said that the passing of Ariel Sharon will herald the rise of the Messiah.

  5. I will always believe that this is punishment to him for what he did! Once a hero of Israel, now, well best I say no more beyond: He did wrong, the price was high!

  6. he should have never gave Gaza back HE GOT G-ds punishment ,

  7. Dina Moskowitz says:

    Amen!!!!

  8. Mary Dean says:

    In response to James Sternhell: Yes, Messiah is going to come, but Israel must be beware of the false messiah (the "prince" who is to come), spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, in chapter 9:27. This false messiah will broker a seven year peace agreement, then break it in the middle of the seven years and proclaim himself to be G-D (but this evil man will be worse than Hitler and Antiochus put together). The REAL Messiah will come to set up His Kingdom in Jerusalem at the end of the seven years, establish true peace, and all nations will come up to Jerusalem to worship Him–the promised Messiah, the real King. (Zechariah, chapter 14) The time is NOW to unseal the Book of Daniel–read Daniel chapter 12!!
