Ariel Sharon Said to Be Near Death

sharon in comaAriel Sharon, the former prime minister of Israel who has been comatose for nearly eight years, edged closer to death on Wednesday evening, suffering from kidney failure.

A spokesman for the hospital that has been treating Mr. Sharon, 85, said that “there has been a deterioration in his medical condition.” A person who had been briefed on the situation, but spoke on the condition of anonymity because of its delicacy, said Mr. Sharon had suffered a setback about a month ago and spent two weeks in intensive care after emergency surgery, then seemed to have stabilized before the most recent turn.

“It looks pretty bad, but it’s not a matter of hours,” said another person with knowledge of his condition who also spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Mr. Sharon, a controversial military commander who rose to hold many of his nation’s top positions, suffered a stroke after shaking up Israeli politics at the height of his power.

An architect of Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, he stunned the world and his own constituents with a complete withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005. He abandoned the Likud Party he led as prime minister to form the centrist Kadima Party, and he was believed to be preparing for further territorial concessions to establish a Palestinian state when he fell ill.

In a vegetative state since January 2006, Mr. Sharon has been breathing on his own but fed intravenously, and in September he underwent surgery to fix the feeding tube. A year ago, scientists announced that they had found surprising activity in response to external stimuli during a brain scan, suggesting Mr. Sharon might be able to hear and understand.

Mr. Sharon was taken back to his family farm in the Negev Desert for a weekend in 2010, but he has spent the rest of the last seven and a half years in Tel Hashomer hospital outside Tel Aviv, according to the hospital spokesman, Amir Marom. His sons were with him at the hospital on Wednesday, according to the people who had been briefed on the situation.

            “Fritz Grobba wrote on 17 July 1942:
            I reported considerable concern … about the participation of members of the entourage of Prime Minister Galiani [Rashid Ali] and of the Grand Mufti in SD [secret security police] courses and site visits to concentration camps … The visit by three assistants of the prime minister [Galiani] and one of the Grand Mufti at concentration camp Oranienburg had already taken place. The visit lasted about two hours with very satisfying results … the Jews aroused particular interest among the Arabs…. It all made a very favorable impression on the Arabs”

            accidently, Yasser Arafat was his nephew

            i wish you good luck on your personal struggle

            Oh yes the grand old duke of Palestine.

            And before ’38, everyone admired him and loved ‘book-signings’ of Mein Kampf. He became popular on the ‘Speech-Circuit’ of various dinner-holders.
            Everyone (but Chaplin) admired his style.
            People were not as ‘educated’ back then, of course. It was only ‘time’ which had to pass to begin to realize he was only a ‘mad corporal’ with one goal in mind -control of the world – which he felt needed to be peopled by only blond blue-eyed and square-jawed brainwashed Kampfers, who could be happy boinking pig-tailed blond girls in pretty dresses.
            That ‘the world’ realized that too late, was simply lack of accurate reporting and cell-phones. Took a big effort then to reverse a tide of complaints.
            Going back to look at the past should, of course, be ONLY for knowing how not to go wrong with your voting … rather than trying to ‘re-visit’ the period in history.

            Strangely, throwing history into people’s faces all the time seems to be a favourite way to take shots at them forever. Then, something like religions, the repetition becomes a bore. Even if the quality ‘non-digital’ photography of the period was better, and tremendously interesting 80 or 90 years later.

        his only wish was to see the terrorist Arafat gone before his time came…at least he got his wish

        • Hind Abyad

          Sharogne, Begin, Shamir were terrorists before Arafat in Palestine,
          before Israel was born, clown..

          Hezbollah was born from Begin-Sharon invasion of Lebanon in 1982, who were supposed to stay one month then return to Israel, against all International orders, Sharon continued his advance on route to Beirut, his tanks rolled over innocent civilians cars on the road, loaded with Lebanese famylies inside fleeing from the South, i saw pictures long time eliminated, but must be in archives, showing cars flatened like sheets of men, women, children, babies, old people, pets inside, like cockrooches.. what Army in the World would to this?
          I trew up.

          Hamas was created by same Likud’s Sharon Mossad as an Islamic rival to Arafat who was Secular.. who represented all of Palestinians, Chrstians and Moslems.

          The old Zionist cheme more alive than ever today..to create divisions and weaken the people.

          • doron

            huh??
            all i said was that atleast he got to see arafat die
            btw, what is this zionist scheme you talk about?

          • Hind Abyad

            When Arafat was due to come in Jericho,
            Sharon said; if he comes to Jericho i will kill him …and he did, who else.

          • doron

            oh please! is that all? even if its true, you cant build a case on this.
            and even if so ,is that the zionist scheme you mean? to kill arafat?
            btw no one killed him
