Pat Robertson says God struck down Ariel Sharon

  1. I have said last year that Israel was entering into the most dangerous period of its entire existence as a nation. That is intensifying this year with the loss of Sharon. Sharon was personally a very likeable person. I am sad to see him in this condition. But I think we need to look at the Bible and the Book of Joel. The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who, quote, "divide my land." God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible, he says, "This is my land." And for any prime minister of Israel who decides he going carve it up and give it away, God says, "No. This is mine." And the same thing -- I had a wonderful meeting with Yitzhak Rabin in 1974. He was tragically assassinated, and it was terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless, he was dead. And now Ariel Sharon, who was again a very likeable person, a delightful person to be with. I prayed with him personally. But here he is at the point of death. 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 EU, the United Nations or United States of America. God said, "This land belongs to me, you better leave it alone."

    Mr. Robertson forgot that Israel had been divided for thousands of years I guess God just now took notice of it. :stone

    I get a laugh every time I read something this fool has said. Then I fall on my knees and thank G-d I am a Catholic.

    Mr. Robertson talks like we're actually interested in his judgmental opinion.

    Robertson and his ilk are so quick to claim that the misfortunes of those that disagree with them are the wrath of God exacted. Yet, surely, as a man who is getting older himself, Robertson has lost at least one friend or family member to a stroke. Millions of people the world over have strokes each year, and many of them die. Is God angry at all of them?

    Has anyone really LOOKED at Mr Pat Robinson's appearance recently? Has lost weight, shrunken features....does not appear well when I saw him flipping through channels yesterday.

    Keep remembering: Do unto others

    He must have forgotten that part of God's advice.
